ScoreBoard!!!!
I've been working out hard the last week or two and finally stepped on the scale yesterday to find that I had lost 4 pounds!!! Woo hoo, I am going to rocket to the front of the pack in the Blogger ten pound challenge!! I don't know if anybody else is taking this very seriously, but I've been putting in a good 45 minutes to an hour and a half everyday out at the soccer field. My daughter comes out with me most days and runs drills to. It's cool that she enjoys it and has wanted to continue working on her game.

Yesterday was the first truly hot day here in Texas and the first where I got worn out more due to the heat than my own currently poor lung capacity. Still dehydration helps on the scale, and I'm willing to win by any means necessary. The girl weighed herself too, and said that she had lost weight. I don't think she knows what she's talking about since she thought she weighed in at 504 lbs. I had to explain that was 50.4 pounds. I also told her that she doesn't need to lose weight and that she will gain weight as she grows and that is normal and healthy. I think she was somewhat relieved, but she contends that she's a little chubby. I told her that she wasn't, and that I didn't even want her worrying about stuff like that.

For the rest of you that are competing for second place in the ten pound challenge, good luck!

Damn you Dagromm! I have GOT to get back on the wagon today! I'll do a salad for lunch and resume drinking my half gallon of water per day.

Q said...

3 pounds Dagromm. I am hot on your tail!

Gyuss Baaltar said...

I don't own a scale, so I'm doing this by having the Iron Sheik body slam me every day. He'll know when I've lost weight.

EsLocura said...

I am also down 3lbs. so both you and Q please step aside, you are slowing my stride ... hope to be in the lead by friday.

Tera said...

You guys are doing great! Es, you might have to call and give Nina Inspiration in my stead...I figure you'd be the safest considering this "dibs" stuff and all :)

Dagromm said...

Tera - I like to think that if I'd eaten half way decently over the weekend that I'd be doing even better. Oops, I guess I need to add in today as well.

Q - What did you say about my hot tail????

Gus Bladder - I know when you say Iron Shiek that you actually mean Q and when you say body slam you actually mean.....well body slam.

Eslocura - IT IS ON!!!

Tera - I appreciate your concern for the old ways. It marks you as a great lady. Now shake that ass!

Tera said...

Consider it shooken!

Dagromm said...

Tera - Nice.

Churlita said...

I lost so much weight when I was sick, that I'm trying to gain some now. I've started eating sticks of butter.

Dagromm said...

Churlita - Getting sick is a great way to lose weight. I lost a bunch when I got my appendix out. I might have to try that again to give me that extra edge.

EsLocura said...

I'm there Tera, I think not drinking beer and rum helped. of ocurse I don't seem as happy now with out my "nightcap" but as Dagromm said "IT IS ON!"

fringes said...

My pants no longer zip. Did the challenge specifically say lose 10 lbs or, you know, just 10 lbs? I may be in the lead.

Dagromm said...

Eslocura - I will not be defeated!

Fringes - Don't worry, Q does that to all of his lovers. He breaks their zippers as a way of marking his territory and "clearing a path".

fringes said...

Ha. That explains a lot.

EsLocura said...

dagromm darling, eat my dust!

LIT said...

What's the deadline on this 10 lb. stuff? Young Chefs Academy may seriously impede your progress.

Nina said...

Dagromm that's great!! I can't seem to motivate. I'm soooo in last place as I sit here with my 3rd glass of wine.

Cyber D said...

Way to go, Weight-loss-Joe.

Susan said...

I'm officially posting less than you now a days. I've lost 5 and that's under some crazy circumstances that I'm going to put at "womanly ways" so I feel good. You're kickin' uhh..butt dude. Keep up the good work!

Dagromm said...

Fringes - If any other weird things happen let me know and I can tell you how Q was probably responsible.

Eslocura - I'm down to only eating dust now. It's part of my secret diet plan.

Lit - The 10 lbs. plan will be over by then.

Nina - I didn't do a good job of motivating myself yesterday, but I will today.

Cyber D - You're welcome to compete for 2nd place with the others.

Susan - "Womanly ways"?? I don't understand and I'm honestly not sure if I want to.

Kofi said...

Congrats to all... Don't own a scale either... but I've been working out for a while now and I'm actually trying to gain a few pounds of muscle this summer... although I doubt that will happen.
