Not drinking like a damn fish= weight loss.
« on: February 22, 2007, 02:10:08 PM »
Who would have thought?

I've lost like 5 pounds over the past couple weeks.

Whoo hoo!

I'm coming in somewhere at around 150 lbs. 

I got up to around 165 after I quit doing coke... the metabolism crash post-coke binges bloat... icky.   

So, I'm rather happy with what I've hit right now.

A few years ago, I was a waifish 135 lbs... something which I think would be a rather unhealthy thing to do right now... but I used to be able to fit into my friend's pants.  We used to say that with us, "being a zero is a good thing."

Those days are over now.  Le sigh.

And yes, I'm eating.

My weight has fluxuated all through my adult life. In my early twenties I got down to 125, which was size ultra-zero, and came from not eating enough and partying way too much.

I had a South American lover who found me too skinny (at 150) and beefed me up to 180 with the likes of rum & tonics and home-made truffles. Eventually he found me too plump and started me on an 800 calorie regime that brought me down to 160 (not without some tears, though).

When I moved to France in my early 30s, the combination of daily work-outs and excellent food brought me to 145 lean, ripped pounds. On a visit home, the South American exclaimed "You look so skinny and smell so French!".

Years of Kaletra and the required no-fat-no-cholesterol-never-no-kidding diet has maintained me between 150 and 160.

Good for you! Congrats!

Sometimes I find myself on the Thermonuclear BM diet plan.  I hate it when that happens.

I've been hanging around 135-140 since my last severe intestinal distress episode. :)

Ha ha ha!

It's funny because it's retroactively ironic!

And I think I just felt the universe implode a little.

Oh shi---

Oh to be 150 poounds. I can only dream of such a number.

I weigh in at a hefty 125 pounds at the moment, up from 117 when diagnosed, and a miserly 100 or so pounds when I finished high school.
I would've made a great jockey, if only I could  ride horses and get out of bed at 3am each day.

This is why I know I can't really try to force myself to get back down to the 135 I so dream of.  It would be unwise...

The "what the fuck is wrong with you?" weight as I call it.  After the question I heard the most.

My cheekbones could cut glass.

I think my main problem is lack of height (about 5'4") and skinny legs. Even at 125, I manage to have a little fat gut - as per this shot, which will be removed very shortly (oh, and i'm wiping perspiration off my face, not blowing my nose)
