    Ok, so first, I don't really feel like such a fat-ass anymore, but I thought I'd make a small tribute to the woofy GuiltyGear.

    And also I want to think everyone that posted their encouragement in my first thread http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/480488/.

    So I've been dieting for 10 months now, exercising for half a year, and I've cut 85 pounds.

    It's an amazing amount! I kind of don't believe the number sometimes, but then I recall all the pant sizes I've been travelling through in the last year. I should post some before and after pictures.

    But I'm still chugging along, health is great, blah blah blah.

    My co-workers (and my non-existent, imaginary boyfriend) were saying that I should through some kind of "100-pound" party, and losing 100 pounds is my minimum goal, putting me at 210 total.

    But we're a bit stuck on ideas for the party. We thought we could have 100 pounds of something to symbolize the weight loss... but honestly, 100 pounds of most things are really expensive..... anyone have any good ideas?

    And I wanted to say thanks again for everyone who took the time to post some encouragement icon_biggrin.gif

    Wow Ruggie, 85 pounds is awesome, puts me to shame!

    You are looking great. As for the party, why does it have to be 100 pounds of something. Why not just 100 items or the like icon_smile.gif

    Well done!

    You might play with the UK pound and then convert to dollars....

    I don´t know...

    A 10 pound bag of potatoes is generally around $3-4, depending on where you live. At $30-40 for 100 pounds, that's not outrageous for a symbol. Just be sure to store them somewhere dry and dark and you'll prevent them from going bad; even on a diet, potatoes aren't bad if you bake them instead of frying them, and don't drown them in butter and sour cream.

    And congrats. 85 pounds is quite the accomplishment.

    Find an abandoned car and allow party guests to use a sledgehammer to inflict 100 pounds. It will be very therapeutic. I saw it done by a frat in college during finals week as a fundraiser. I still wish I had paid the five dollars to take a few swings lol.

    CONGRATULATIONS!!


    ...Photobucket

    OMG! I have never been more honored to have my name dropped anywhere. You have truly grabbed hold of a problematic situation and completely turned it around. You've done the thing fit people preach about all the time, not really taking into account how hard the body fights change. It needs the mind to be an unflinching disciplinarian. You're doing it! You're doing it! I don't know what your further plans are, but you look amazing already. You could always use weights at your house. One of these shouldn't turn you guys out much if you shop around.

    Another congratulations from another loser! You've far surpassed me in what I've done here, so a big pat on the back for you!

    Maybe you could have a 100 lbs of weight, and have people have to carry it around or move it from one side of the room to the other. That way, they'd get a feeling for what you're no longer carrying.

    Fucking eh, as the saying goes!

    You made a plan, you "manned up" AND you executed it.

    :-)

    Tell your fat ass friends!

    Obesity REMAINS the number one KILLER, by far, in our society.

    No more fat ass, no more fat ass.

    Continue.

    Kudos to you man! Very inspirational.

    As for the 100-thingy. Maybe a 100-pound cement/sand/gravel mix and mold a 100 figure on it. Get a warhammer and whack it on your party day. (Sounds fun but of course a bit of a safety issue - you´re a science guy you know the ropes.)

    Oh wow guys, thanks for all the kudos and terrific ideas; I'm really floored!

    I need to work on getting some body shots, but here's a progress picture that shows just how much weight I've lost in my face. The skull is not a great place to store fat!

    ba01n.jpg

    Things I love about not being a fat-ass:

    1) I am never, ever, ever again going to buy clothes in the Big 'N' Tall section, or the Fat-Ass Clothing Store.

    2) I have so much piece of mind not worrying about my blood sugar or blood pressure or cholesterol.

    3) .... it really does get longer!

    4) Not flinching when I accidentally see my reflection

    I know I'm not done, I still need to cut another 30 pounds or so, but at least I can see light at the end of the tunnel now. icon_smile.gif

    Congrats! That is super awesome.

    As for the lovely symbol. Get a kiddie pool, pour in 100 lbs of water (measure with a gallon jug) dump in a few dozen boxes of jello, and you have a symbol as tasty as it is disgustingly similar to fat! icon_biggrin.gif

    That's a fantastic idea! Visually significant and totally unappealing!

    Thanks for the great ideas guys; so far I'm really digging the swimming pool idea. I guess that would be around 12 gallons of water. Very cool!

    Wow! Look what a cutie you are! Great job, man.

    You definitely need to have a HUGE party when you hit 100. Hey, here's an idea for your work buds: Collect 100 pounds of food at the party, and donate it to a local food pantry. Celebrate your loss AND let everyone feel good about themselves!

    Top soil is _VERY_ cheap and comes in way too big of bags - like 2 dollars for 20 pounds or so icon_razz.gif

    5 bags of top soil - watered down and shaped into a big you? icon_razz.gif


    oh and uh, CONGRATUMAFUCKINLATIONS icon_smile.gificon_smile.gificon_smile.gif

    that's way awesome icon_smile.gif (those last 30 pounds you lose, mind saving them for me? i could defo use em...)

    This is an amazing transformation and testimony to the strength of your resolve and spirit.

    Congratulations, man. The difference in those two pictures is absolutely astounding. In fact, I am not sure that if people showed me those separately that I'd believe it was the same person.
