Sir Man Boobs

A warm welcome to Sir Man Boobs (not just a pretty name). I ran across his blog when he commented on another weight loss blog. His tagline caught me so unawares that I almost got busted at work ("What's so funny? Are you reading blogs again?").

It's even funnier if you read it with a Scottish accent.

He has already taken off quite a chunk of change but has a way to go yet before he has reached his goal of losing 100 lbs. I hope we are the type of blogging support he thought might not to exist.

Looking forward to follwing your progress.

Thank you for your invite to your elite group. I hope I won't let the side down.

Links are now up on my site ( to here, Sir Semisolid, Sir Howling Belly and Duchess Tuckus.

I started at 275 pounds, am now 210. At 5' 7" tall, if I lost a total of 112 pounds (a British hundredweight rather than the US hundredweight of the more sensible 100 pounds), then that would take me to 163, which is still in the upper end of the ideal.

However, if I was to reach 175 then I would be more than happy.

I look forward to getting to know you all a bit better!

Well met!

According to the death clock link on your site, you have already added 3 years back to your life. Well done.

Your strategy is similar to mine -- eat sensibly, exercise moderately -- except that I am doing mine at "Weight Watchers". Don't know if you have this in the UK, but basically you pay $10 a week for someone to weigh you and tell you about how to lose weight. It is compleltely unecessary but has been helpful for me. Nice to have a support group even if they are all women and mostly humorless.

Though tempting to add your 65 lbs to the Knights of the Round Bottoms total pounds lost, I suppose its only fair to add that which comes after 210. Am also considering converting everything to be measured in stone.

Oh yes, we have weight watchers here, along with all their products in the supermarkets.

However, there's an anarchistic streak to me that rebels against people telling me what I have to do, and tutting or looking disapprovingly at me when I fail to meet their expectations. If I joined weight watchers I'd end up gaining weight just to piss them off, which is not a good strategy...

I'm also concerned that their focus is purely on weight. My focus is on health and the weight loss is a side effect of that, which means the approach is really quite different

Howdy Kim!
Welcome to the family!

65 pounds to date, awesome job!

I'm doing my weekly blog/weigh-in tomorrow, and I will update the links for our ever expanding contracting-family.
