Mission Accomplished - 10 lbs


I did it. I lost 10 pounds. It took 14 days of no-carb suffering but I did it.

Now that I am a svelte 175 lbs, offers for leading movie roles and male model contracts have been pouring in. Flattering, but I'm a family man so I've instructed my people to tell their people that I'm not interested.

Like the classic George W. Bush incident pictured here, it's true that my diet is "Mission Accomplished" but there's still some more work to do. I'd like to get to 173.5 in the next week or so, and ultimately I'd like to maintain an active weight of 170. I've committed to run the Tokyo Marathon a year from now, so as long as I stick with that commitment I'm confident that I'll remain slim and trim for the forseeable future.

Now I'm off to make some nachos. It's been a long two weeks.

I'm not sure you want to use the Mission Accomplished analogy as your motto--You could quickly balloon up to 230 and have no foreseeable exit strategy back to 175.

That was the intent of the ironic photo and W. reference.

I think you look good just the way you are, even if it is a whopping 175:) just plain sexy!!!

I've been enjoying this brief window of me weighing less than you. But, alas, I have plateaued at 180. Perhaps your recent accomplishment will be the impetus for me to make that final push down to 170.

Congratulations. I could use some motivation. Well done!

It's all worth it to look so good. Pride is a wonderful motivator. I can live with it. Doug

Your mom told me about your trip to Peru. I'm jealous. I've been trying to get down there for a few years and it hasn't happened. Besides getting sick it looks like a good trip. Didn't your mom teach you about not eating weird things in foreign countries? :)

When I went backpacking in Columbia and Ecuador my friends and I took a shot of Pepto-Bismol every morning and didn't have any problems.
