Weigh-in Results

Hey everyone, it's Monday.  That means one thing, I hop on the scale and expose my fatness to the world.  That's coming up in a bit.

First, I want to tell you how my bicycle commute went today.  I sat on my bike seat and instantly pondered taking my car into work today.  Not because I was afraid of the ride ahead, but because I instantly realized that a certain part of me was very tender.  Holy crap that bike seat was not very friendly.  I love going through downtown Minneapolis.  Minneapolis in the morning is quite beautiful.  I got to work 20 minutes early.  I was hungry all day and when I got home I snacked quite a bit.  I should have just started making dinner earlier, but I got drawn in.  All-in-all, I feel pretty good about today.  This is the start of something awesome!

Now, on with the show.


I've been working so hard to break the 250 barrier.  I'd consider this smashing it!  Kudos to Jo at Weight on Me at 50+ for guessing 248.2.  only off by .2 pounds.  Pretty good.

I'm back on track.  All I need to do is repeat this week's progress every week until I weigh 196 pounds.  Wow, I can't believe I'm looking at that number and actually believing it's possible.  I'm 2.4 pounds away from the halfway mark!  I'm stoked!


  1. Nice Job Man! You rocked it!

  2. I'm excited to hear about your loss, but I'm really excited to hear about the biking to work. That's awesome, dude!

  3. Way to go on the bike ride! Consider some of the shorts with the gel booty. That is what I wear to spin class. I got mine at Sports Authority. Canari brand. The mens are $40. Make sure they say Gel.

  4. Great job, Andrew! Doesn't it feel wonderful to hit the 240's?

    Good job on the biking, too. I'm looking for a bike, too. Just beginning to shop around. Glad I found out about the gel booty shorts here.

  5. Nice work! Check out some seats for your bike. We got one for my bike and it made the world of a difference. I don't think it was too expensive.

  6. I'm glad you broke 250...GREAT JOB!!

  7. Rock on, man! and i've been curious, and sorry if you've already said, what type of scale are you using? im in the market for a new, reliable scale. (both of ours stink.) .. i'm OK with spending the $$ if it's worth it!

    Thanks, and excellent job! keep it up! =)


  8. @Lor, I'm using a weight-watchers scale from costco. I don't think it was super expensive (I'm not sure since I got it as a Christmas present. I asked for it). The only problem is its a little unreliable if it's not placed on a very flat surface. I have a pretty uneven bathroom floor so I needed to mark with tape where it goes each time or my weight would fluctuate.

  9. Almost half-way: time to dig your heels in and consistently chip away until you reach your goal - you can do it, one week at a time.
