Still Focused Guys . . . Don't Worry!

I know that I've been quiet for over a week now, so I just wanted to assure you fellas that I'm still on my 12 week transformation and progressing along nicely I might add ;) Let's just say that I'm in the process of giving away my size 36 pants since I'm now fully in a size 34! Now, this is a far cry from the tight size 48 pants I use to sport when I was at my heaviest weight.

Talked to our friend Wendy, from Wendybird Fotos, and we've tentatively setup the 1st of March for our next photo shoot which I'm really amped about. I believe that these pictures will be a major improvement from my last photo shoot.

Starting to clearly see your veins under your skin is truly one of those things that you have to experience for yourself. Nevertheless, I'm still concerned about getting cut and bleeding out faster than I did when I had a thick layer of fat covering them. Well, I guess that's the price one pays for trying to get lean and ripped.

I went to my 20 year Congressional Page High School Reunion over the holiday weekend. It was really an interesting experience since I had not seen any of my classmates in 20 years. Well, I had a blast, and we simply picked up where we had left off. Since I was not fat when I was 16, many of my classmates could not believe my before pictures that I showed them. And, I felt honored to have folks come up to me and talk about their current or past weight problems. I truly believe that this is an epidemic that we as a society need to address more aggressively.

This was a good break from my routine, as I let my hair down and indulged myself with foods that I normally don't eat; however, I was still very mindful of my portion size and not stuffing myself needlessly. All that being said, if you're in DC, go to Pizzeria Uno in Union Station and make sure to save room for the WOW Chocolate dessert. You'll thank me later.

Finally, I wanted to leave you with an inspirational quote that I picked up from one of those Airline magazines that I've actually added to my email signature:


"Excellence is the result of caring more than others think is wise, risking more than others think is safe, dreaming more than others think is practical, and expecting more than others think is possible."
Oh, I almost forgot. I plan on dropping a BOMB on Monday that you will not want to miss . . .
