from the archives...

So, I'm happy to report that I'm down 55lbs from the day I started my new diet. Things are working well there. I can see things that I couldn't see for a while without a mirror and/or a backache.

Example- picture taken July 2011. My sweaty 282-lb self in Salvador, Brazil.

October 2011, 227 lbs. Possibly 226 if I shaved the beard. Which I think I can do now, since I'm pretty sure my chin has been exposed again.

At any rate, so far so good. about 35lbs to go.

But, that's not why I called you all here. I found some old pictures taken from before I became a brown-water sailor, aboard the ancient and mighty king of rustbuckets, the SS New River. Look:

Look, I'm glad you're losing so much weight. Really, I am.
But I'm sitting over here feeling like shit about myself because I'm filled with more McDonalds than an actual Mcdonalds.
I know you've been working really hard to lose weight but I was hoping you could gain back about 20-30 lbs.
If you value our inter-blog friendship, you'll do this for me.

Or you could post more pics of Brazilian women.

Or both.

For what it's worth, I'm still fat... and now it's loose fat, like a highway strip joint stripper. You know, the ones who are up there dancing before the C-section stitches are removed.
