Random Guy at Walmart

To set the story properly, I have a photo. Obviously I care about y’all a lot because taking a picture of your own vehicle in the Walmart parking lot is a little douchey, but I did it anyway. I tried to pass it off like I was holding the phone up to see the screen in the sunlight, but I’m not sure I pulled it off.

Not sure where I left off, but this morning’s weight (178.8) is a new low. That puts my total loss so far at 46.2 pounds, with 8.8 left to go to meet the goal I set in January. (Since I’m not breaking the glass stones … Read More »
