Day 24 at IMAGE HEALTH in Roseville.

293 lbs.

I love progress. Though, I don't FEEL like i've lost 27 lbs.  I still look in the mirror and think, "Damn, just who I've always wanted to be...the Pillsbury Dough Boy."

But damn if it isn't progress.

See, Will Power is a big factor here.  My ENTIRE office department got free Chick-Fil-A today.  There were dozens of sandwiches just sitting there, waiting for some hungry mouth to walk in and devour them.  I must have walked in and out of that room 3 times.  I checked the calories on them...they're a bit high. NOT BAD actually for fast food, and the grilled chicken sandwich is only 290 calories!  YES! But, screw you Mike, no grilled ones.

It was very hard. But I didn't give in. Had my fruit salad and granola bar, and pretended I was munching on some chicken yumminess.. But fruit just doesn't taste like chicken!  If i did, then I'd have much bigger problems than losing weight!

So I was strong, didn't give in to my temptations, walked back in my office, sat down at my desk, and CRASH!  My chair shattered right beneath me!!! I actually BROKE my damn chair! Isn't that supposed to happen to people GAINING weight, not LOSING IT????!!!!

It's a shame no one was filming, cause I'm sure that would be a viral you tube video by now.

Deandra was my tech again today at IMAGE HEALTH.  I figure, since she's already seen me with my shirt off once, what's the harm in it happening again. She cranked my intensity higher than ever, and I really had to concentrate on not being a big wuss. I think I did an ok job until she starting talking football. She's a Raider fan...Suddenly, I didn't feel so bad sitting in a chair getting zapped.

It could be worse, I, too, could be a Raider fan.
