Still Lord Chubalot

Hit Weight Watchers weigh in at lunch today in shorts and t-shirt (Yes, it was cold actually). Did a 3 miler with Lord Lessismore first to shake off the last half pound or so. Weighed in at 178 which means I had a lb to spare. Ihope to take off about 3 lbs by the end of Feb, so last minute heroics anre not necessary and I can weigh in a pair of jeans ('cuz it gets real cold in Feb).

Round the Horn

Sir Man Boobs asks whether or not I'm reverting to the title of "Sir" since I'm over my goal weight. Nope, so long as Weight Watchers has me as a lifetime member, I'm keeping the title. This means I've got 8 days to lose about 2 lbs or I will be stripped of my title and thrown off my lands.

Last week was good, but I ran into a couple of pizzas over the weekend. If I can be a good boy for like 4 days, I think I'll make it.

New Knights
A warm welcome to The Earl of Arrogant Bastard. What can I say? It's my favorite beer, so I figure its got to be a good blog. I haven't seen too much about his weight loss quest, but I'm sure it's coming.

Welcome also to Weight Trimmer, Esquire. He appears to be one of them there foreign types, like Sir Man Boobs, who weights himself in comparison to large stones out back. He deserves early kudos for taking on weight loss during the holidays.

The Rest of You Bums
Sir Semisolid put on a few lbs over the holidays, but he hasn't fessed up to the exact numbers yet.

Sir Man Boobs had a rough holiday as well. The man who seems to be as consistenet as gravity had a 5 lb gain one week. Yikes! But he's back on task and drifting down again. He'a got a neat herbal tea trick that I'm goign to try out.

Lord Lessismore posted in December, but hasn't put up post holiday numbers.

Sir Lee Padthaiserver remains quiet on the subject of weight loss in his main blog, but he assured me in the comments that things are going well. How about turning some of that writing talen ttowards the subject of weight loss?

Lady Lean is struggling with how to resist the temptation to eat when onw has a lot of time of ones hands. I have noted that it is much more difficult to stay on track during the weekends. When one is retired, everyday is a weekend. ont he other hand, these are the types of problems to have.

Sir Twice the Man is still inaccessible to me. Has anyone been in touch with him?

Sir Squishy has been taking lumps but is resolved to get back on the wagon. He's starting over. I have a hunch that he will see his goal weight before he sees his current weight again. I'm not entirely sure why though. A certain honest self-awareness comes across in his posts and that is going hit paydirt sometime. My bet is sooner rather than later.

Josh, Esquire is back and ranting, baby. He has some choice words about some cheesheads who did a study to prove that chocolate milk is the best post workout exercise drink. I like his mandate about shopping the edges of the supermarket. Most of all, I found his post about changes he is going through interesteing. Something that began as weight-loss is becoming more of a personal growth thing for him.

Duchess Tuckus ... Duchess? Duchess? Don't make come up to Canada and haul your ass out of McDonalds.

Sir Bellyjeans managed to have a net negative during the holidays. Off to a good start!

Lady Atkins is on an uptick from a birthday binge. I have not had time to catch up on her blog since she is prolific. I will do so though because it sounds like she is trying some diet pills. My first reaction to this is that it is a bad idea, but I want to read more to see what's going on (which I should probably do before I post this but I don't have time right now so you can see I'm kinda stuck oh well).

Tim, the Exercise Oracle may be coming back. I'll keep ya posted.

Holiday Plan Achieved

I gained a whopping 7 lbs in December, but it was a hell of a month. Thank goodness I'm off beer, or who knows, I might have gotten into double digits. Jan 3rd I tipped the home scale at 179. Need to take 7 lbs off to get back to 172 on the home scale which usually equates to 177 at Weight Watchers.

It's been hard to get back into the diet swing of things. As of this morning, I'm down to 176.5. Another lb or 2 and I could skate under my goal number by employing the odd wrestler's trick or two. I don't like to make this a habit, but I'm not above weighing in first thing in the morning in shorts when I haven't eaten anything (perhaps even after a run) this month to get by.

I am totally out of the loop with blogs. I will try to get back up to speed in the next couple of days. We have a few new knights to welcome and I want to check in with all the hardy veterans as well. More soon.
