Last night was one of the weirdest hours of my life. The cast members were all dehydrated and crazed from hunger. The theater was so hot, I wish we could have weighed in after the show because I swear I sweated off 2lbs.
The results show was proclaimed to be a battle between Good, Evil, and More Evil. With myself, Ali – who two months ago had fallen to fourth place, but after doing a Master Cleanse eating no solid food since Saturday, a seaweed wrap, and yes, a colonic – was visibly gunning for first. Steve, in first place last time, clutched two bottles of juice ready to rehydrate himself the second after the weigh-in. I forget who exactly was the Evil or More Evil between Steve and Ali. I was a bit loopy at this point myself. But my Mother will be happy to know that I was the Good.
In this battle, both Evil and More Evil kicked Good’s Fat Ass. I fell short of my goal of 30lbs lost and came in at 28lbs lost. Which is 13.9% of my body weight lost. Steve came in at 33 lbs lost which was around 15%. And Ali, I don’t know it all got hazy… Ali just lost a fcuking lot of weight and blew us both out of the water.
I place 3rd. The PIT granted me $100 which I am donating to Bare Ass 2008! Bringing the total to $1855. 28lbs lost. $1855 raised. just short of my goals. I have mixed feelings about this. And to be honest I’m trepedatious about moving forward now that I don’t have to weigh-in on stage for the world to see. I got to work early today, and have been sitting here for almost an hour completely landlocked about what to do for breakfast. I can eat whatever I want now. But should I?
Last night, we had pizza delivered to the theater during the show. Besides the fact that it was so hot in the theater, and the thought of eating on stage made me feel like a zoo animal, for the first time I just didn’t want it. And I walked away. I don’t think any of this is leading up to a ‘end of Full House’ phrased lesson but I felt the need to note it.
So to celebrate my new weight, I am going to revisit my very first post where I compared my weight to something really obscure. At 194lbs I was excited to have dropped from Super Heavy to Heavy in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Tournaments standards. At 172lbs, I am now LIGHT Heavy. Half glass full focus on the word Light, half glass empty on the word Heavy. And there it is.
