I'm feeling pretty good about myself the past two weeks. I've made a lot of progress in just 10 or so workouts.
I was using 25's & 30's for my dumbell chest press, and now I'm doing 50's.
I lost about 25 pounds (all water, but my pants are looser and I had to use new holes on the belt).
I sleep better. I can now do a solid 30 minutes of cardio without asking God to kill me now.
I see a slight difference and it's all the motivation I needed. Today was candy bar day! Only one a week. Sure, I'll lick a Krispy Kreme three or four times, but I haven't had fast food in a while.
I can't wear my size 60's, they bunch up. The old pants from way back in the closet (56's) are the ones I put on today. Not tight, not loose, just right. Technically I can wear 54's I just gotta be careful not to bend down to quickly.
A customer comes over to my place and asks me to come inspect a part that he needs some chrome plating on. It's an emergency, so I jump in his car to do the inspection. Let me rephrase that. I tried to jump in his S10 pickup passenger seat. I had to contort and hold on to the door as I compressed my body into the tiny truck. If I was in the drivers seat, I would have laughed my as off. I can tell he wants to laugh, so I blurt out "Say one fucking word and your price will triple!" Then I laughed and so did he.
I talked him into taking my 97 Lincoln where the seats were ALLLLL the way back. He's only 5'3" and he felt like a dwarf in my car.
So, I felt like shit. But it was a good shit, kinda like a fuel shit to make a fire burn hotter. I know I can't fit behind the weel of that S10. The new goal is drive that fucking truck.
Who makes these things anyway? I mean, WTF? Would it kill them to add another two feet of space between the wheel & seat?
Seriouslly, all jokes aside, I had no idea I was THAT FRIGGIN BIG! I mean I knew I was huge, but I didn't think that compact cars were beyond me. Can you imagine a Miata or Geo Metro?
THe reason I thought I could fit was because a friend of mine has a 2004 Chevy Colorado, the replacement for the S10 and I can drive it or be a passenger without a problem.
One day I'll share some of my airline storys.
