I am on day 27. It has been brutal for more than one reason (see below). I told everyone I know that if I break the diet, I have to eat a can of Alpo, video it, and post it on the internet. (Not my original idea) It helped. At last weigh in, I lost 20 lbs. total, and I may have put on some muscle, based on the way my delts look. I hope to be down by 25 total when I weigh in on day 28. Fingers crossed.
Here is why it sucked…
…My signifiacant other is semi-toxic. Always asking why I can’t just eat 2000 calories of regular food and lose weight slowly, and be less extreme.
…I am an airline pilot and spend more than half my time on the road. That makes lugging around milled flax and peanut butter that has to stay cold a real pain in the ass.
…I have a four month old daughter, and when I get home from wok my wife expects me to do literally everything for my little girl. I don’t mind, in fact I love doing it, but it leads to a very serious sleep deficit part of the time.
…My core sucks. The planks alone were making my sissy abs cramp up like a motherfucker.
Here is why I stayed with it…
…I am a fat son of a bitch. Started at 270. Been as high as 307 and as low as 198 in my adult life, and I am afraid that if I keep yo-yoing, it might kill me.
…I have a little girl to look after. She is the real reason I did it. I kept her picture taped on the cover of my exercise logbook.
…People treat you better in all areas of life if you are not fat. Sad, but true.
My advice if you are thinking of doing it…
…DO IT!!! To hell with moderation for 28 days. Fuck everything and everybody, be selfish, stay motivated and give yourself no chance to fail. All these tabloid diets that promise a pound a day of wt. loss are cheap imitators. This is the real thing, and it is magic.
…It is only 28 days. Unless you are a real puss, you can do anything for 28 days.
…Fight to keep every fucking pound (EFP) off. For whatever reason you do the diet, (more pussy, better pussy, to live better longer, whatever) it is all for nothing (or worse) if you don’t keep it off.
In closing just let me say…good night San Diego, go fuck yourself!
