FatBoy Roy here...Is everybody ready to rumble???
O.K.--Let's review just a minute. FatBoy Roy, that's me, tip-toed on the scales on August 18, 2003 at 350 pounds...and the scales actually survived the sudden impact!!! Now, 24 days later, FatBoy Roy has lost 23 pounds of greasy yellow lard and only has 107 pounds to go to get down to my goal of 220, which is what O' FatBoy Roy weighed during the college days!!! I will share my weight loss journey with all you fine folks and "How I done it"...but not as a prescription for what YOU need to do. Maybe some things I am doing will help you...maybe not. However, I am an authority on being FAT...so there!!!
Baby Step # 1 is an easy one, even for me!! Go to ******.com and register your fat self! It's free and painless. Keep track of what you stuff in your pie hole every beautiful day! Write in the journal that you will find there. Enter all the activities you do, even if it's walking around the house for a minute or two to find the bathroom!
If you don't like that website, there are plenty of others, or break out the old pencil and notebook and write it all down for the good of posterity!!! http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/dance.gif
Now that O' FatBoy Roy has a daily journal, a list of all food intake, activities and what-not...the next baby step is in order...SO BRACE YOURSELF FOR STEP 2!!
Baby Step #2 is an important one. Everybody knows that "One is the loneliest number that you"ll ever do", even FatBoy Roy knows that!! So let's find our chubby-self a buddy, a pal, a friend...someone you can talk to and tell them that you are sick of being flabby and feeling like a whale out of water!!! YES, it helps to have a "Support Group" of one or more souls that will actually listen to you and care about you. You NEED to feel the love! http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/love2.gif
So pick up the phone, go see your long-lost friend, get on-line to someone you know...someone who will be there for you!!! Many of you have friends here on this board who really care about you...so a good choice may be right here! BUT WHEREVER, find someone to share your journey. It really will help you...even if you are a loner, a hermit, or even if you just crawled out from under a rock or out of the Lost Caves of Guatemala...get yourself a companion on this journey! If you absolutely can't find anyone...O' FatBoy Roy is here with washtubs full of lard to lose and we can head off toward the horizon together!!!
So... FatBoy Roy's Baby Step 1 & 2 aren't too bad...but don't under-estimate the importance of a good foundation, a framework, a gridwork for what is to come. This is a journey to change your life...it IS important!!! So let's all shake our tail-feathers and get it done!!! http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/dance.gif
Let O' FatBoy know what's cookin' and get ready for my baby step #3...
