Today I contracted for 12 months of a trainer. So, in the first session she's got me sitting on a machine and pushing handles vertical. She says, 'Look straight ahead'. Well, she's standing straight ahead and has a stunningly tight body with interesting protuberances and me being the polite guy not willing to stare at a perfect stranger I told her to not stand straight in front of me. This was my only mistake of the session. Ok, with the price of the trainer as motivation, I bought the odd groceries and have begun a serious effort to get trim. First report: Chocolate-flavored whey powder mixed with water is not going to be offered at Sonic anytime soon. Thin, thin, thin, was that stuff. Not enough flavor to justify a description, although the color seems to have been attempting chocolate. Last year I said I'd try to lose weight from a starting weight of 270, well I'm at 270.4 today, and that year was a wasted effort. I'll lift a pint of water to the next year being successful.;c Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
