biggest loser

typically when injured i drop weight. lack of training = lack of appetite. but somehow this time around was different. maybe i was more depressed. maybe double dating led to too much good food and good wine. or maybe i simply didn’t care. but pound by pound i watched as the number climbed. not a lot. yet still too much. ever since i dropped the weight 11 years ago i have a panic point. the number on the scale that scares me back to the reality reminder that at one point i was fat. and over the weekend i went there.

yesterday while running with JP he mentioned that my injury left him without the morning motivation and he’d taken a little too much leeway to eat too much and run too little. so given my competitive nature i saw the opportunity and went there with the biggest loser style weight loss challenge. and he jumped at the dare. so for the next six weeks (or until goal weight is attained) the game is on and the smack talk has already begun.

this morning JP pulled up for our run, got out of his car and greeted me with a chipper “good morning tub of lard”. and i, equally as kind, responded with a “hi fat ass”. true to our discussion, he pulled his scale out of his trunk and right there on the running path we weighed in and clarified goals.

in the grand scheme of things, neither of us have lots to lose. and no doubt come training start the pounds would vanish anyway but we all know i don’t like to lose so what better way to jump start the process.
