Tony Horton's 10-Minute Trainer Update


As it turns out, you can't really excercize for only ten minutes a day and lose weight. According to Tony's own advice, you have to eat well and drink less, too. These are non-negotiables for me. I like to eat and drink. So I guess this whole experience was a losing battle to begin with.

The bad news is I weigh as much as I did when I started two months ago. The good news is that there has been an almost imperceptible shift in body fat: a little less flab on the love handles and a little more meat on the shoulders. Still, I'm nowhere near being able to feel confident in a bathing suit. But a lot of the insecurity involved in that issue has to do with the fact that my skin is so white it's practically translucent.

None of this means I've given up, of course. Spring has sprung, so I've returned to the occassional jog around the lake and maybe even a push up or two. My long term goal is to never have to upgrade my waist-size again. I know, it's not that lofty of a goal, but I've learned not to challenge myself too hard.

Exercising sucks.

Weight: 167

"drink less"?!?!? OMG seriously?

How does "no" sound? (I know, it's older than grandma, but honestly -it's time-tested, Mother Farker approved.

Drink less. LOLZ. Someone who lives in a place that isn't frozen 10 months a year wrote THAT ridiculous crapola.

Yeah, you know it!

Dan, I recommend you look into this (url below) if you want to lose some weight. The only thing I do on that site is track/enter my food and read the message boards.

I started with that site after you inspired me to lose weight.

I eat anything I want and restrict myself to an average of 1800 calories a day. So far I've lost 2 pounds per week for about 10 weeks straight. Not bad. It does suck to limit the drinking though but it has to be done. I still manage to average a couple of beers a day.

Oh, and I don't exercise.

Long-time reader, occasional commenter...I just had to give props to your European Vacation reference. That made my day. You continue to be my blog hero!

My favorite is:
Guten Tag. My family and I are looking for sex.
