So, I Joined Weight Watchers...Finally
I've been threatening for months to join Weight Watchers, and last night I finally did. I actually weigh more than I thought I did, which threw me into another depression, but now I realize that it doesn't really matter, because I'm taking the necessary steps for me not to be a fat fuck.

This is what I look like now:












This is my goal:

Wish me luck!!!

Todd, I don't want you to look like that, there is nothing to hold onto.

I love you just the way you are hon!

Blogger Kris said...

Dub dub is kick ass!

I've lost bunches of weight on it before - good for you! Call me if you need points support . . .

Blogger Egan said...

Oh the Points system. Do they still do that? It's a pretty good idea. Best of luck Todd, taking action is a great step. If this doesn't work, there's always Curves.

Blogger Evil Petting Zoo said...

While you're losing weight just don't lose your sense of sarcasm. Skinny people aren't very funny sometimes.

egan...isn't Curves just a NW thing?

Blogger Egan said...

Evil - sadly not. It's nationWIDE dude.

Blogger Jo said...

Dude, you don't need Weight Watchers... you just need more exercise... like, ummm... sex?

[psst.. call me!] lol

Blogger ItsTJoint said...

When you reach your goal, make sure to kick He-Man's ass for me.

Blogger Egan said...

By the way Todd, kudos to you for bringing this up. I know it's not easy to admit you are attending WW. Mad props to you.

Blogger Brookelina said...

You go girl!

Blogger Egan said...

Brooke - how was your bath?

Blogger Kath said...

Good luck, Toddles. It didn't work for me...I gained 14# in the first 2 weeks by eating everything they told me to eat...but maybe it will work for you.

Luckily, I did find something that eventually helped me lose 85#.

Drop me a line if you want more details.

:-)

Blogger Kath said...

ps- I second Rachel...I love you just the way you are!

Blogger Evil Petting Zoo said...

Oh...good luck too.

Blogger Melliferous Pants said...

First, you DO NOT look like Chris Farley!!

Second, a few years back I lost a good amount of weight on WW. It's nearly time for me to go back! Hang in there, the first couple of weeks can be a bit challenging.

Blogger Crystal said...

Now isn't it supposed to be easier to stay thin in hotter climates, since heat suppresses appetite? Best Wishes Todd, you can do it!!

Blogger Claudia said...

You just made me pee my pants a bit.

Blogger Monkey said...

I'm a little concerned about your goal. A casket doesn't look good on anyone.

Blogger Monkey said...

Oh and congratulations on starting the program. As Brooke said, "you go girl!" (I have no idea what she means.)

Blogger Übermilf said...

Actually, Curves started a club for men called Cuts.

Anyway, I wish you luck. I know many people have luck with WW because you eat normal food.

Make sure you get some exercise, too, because the goal is to stay nice an healthy, not just to be a sex symbol. Which you already are, to me anyway.

Blogger MsHellion said...

This is very good news. I know that WW provides a great support system which can lift one's spirit even more than weight loss. Congratulations on this big step!

Blogger Knitty Kitty said...

I did WW
Lost 20 pounds...
been a year and I've gained 10 of it back... now I'm back to weighing my pasta...
it works but you have to stick to it.. slow and steady and all that jazz...
dwlz.com has a great listing of points for EVERYTHING

Blogger yournamehere said...

rachel,
thanks, but somewhere in between would be nice.

kris,
my group leader isn't hip enough to call it "dub dub".

egan,
I'm banned for life from Curves. I tried to work out in drag, but...

evil,
I'll never be skinny, just less fat.

jo,
if I lose a few pounds, the odds of actually having sex will be greater.

joint,
victory shall be mine.

Blogger yournamehere said...

egan,
it's no big deal. You know, I'm not really as fat as the before picture, but I would eventually be if I didn't do something.

brooke,
thanks for encouraging me and emasculating me at the same time.

egan,
I'm imaging her bath went quite well.

kath,
I've lost much poundage on WW before. I just quit and gained it back. If I stay on it, it will work.

evil,
thanks.

Blogger yournamehere said...

ms. pants,
I know I don't look like Farley or Shawn Eckhardt or whoever, but I do need to lose weight.

crystal,
humidity always made me too sick to eat. I would always drop weight in the summer. But the desert heat doesn't do a thing to my appetite.

claudia,
sorry. Send the cleaning bill to Blogger.

monkey,
yeah, that's not really my goal. My goal is world domination and the seduction of Jessica Alba.

ubie,
I'm sure the lifetime ban extends to cuts. I'll never be a sex symbol no matter what. I would just like my pants to fit.

mshellion,
thanks for that unusually straightforward and sincere comment.

kitty,
yeah, as soon as I stopped going to the meetings I went back to my old habits.

Blogger Knitty Kitty said...

I actually never went to meetings, I did it all online and now I have the software for my palm pilot..
There is something about actually paying for it that makes you more commited I think..
weird...
g'luck

Blogger Nick said...

I offer my encouragement to you. I also have a ton of respect for you. I hate myself sometimes for being fat, but I hate myself more for not caring enough or being too scared to do anything about it. I don't know where you located the discipline, self respect and courage at but could you let me know, so I can pick some up tomorrow.

Best of luck, and know that there's a fat dude in Kansas that is trying to find the balls to be like you.

Blogger katarina said...

I think you look great. My hat is off to you. I should try eating healthy (especially after what happened to dad). I did really well before (53lbs) but gained most of it back. It's a lifestyle change that I can't seem to stick to after so long.
I'm happy that you want to be healthier, but don't over do it. I'll take Chris Farley over a skeleton anyday. I guess Chris Farley IS a skeleton by now, but you know what I mean.

Blogger JJ said...

They say that fast food hooks you worse than heroin. I can't stay away from the stuff so I end up working out more and more to keep my weight down. Eventually my joints will wear out and I'll have to be taken to Whataburger in that fish tank type thing from Dune.

Blogger MollyNormal said...

Best of luck to ya, babe. I am just starting a new diety thingy too.

Blogger WhiteBoyBob said...

What Nick said. I hate myself for being a fatso, but not enough to get my lardy arse out of a chair and do something about it. Good luck mate.

Blogger Crystal said...

Good luck, sugar!

Blogger WhiteBoyBob said...

PS I'm going to look like picture 2 soon, but not from going to WW but by having a massive heart attack.

Blogger larin von smartass said...

oh, you are going to be so way hot when you are done. skeleton is the new black.

first time here... nice blog.
we use the same template.
and we both have "ass" in our name
stalker.

Blogger Jo said...

"jo,if I lose a few pounds, the odds of actually having sex will be greater."

Geeeeeez... I guess if you're into having sex with such SHALLOW people... then I'll just wish ya good luck ;-)

Blogger The DogGrrrrl said...

I'm on a no-Brussels Sprouts diet.

Blogger Brookelina said...

Todd - you know I love you, right?

Blogger Übermilf said...

I think the world would be a better place if Von Smartass and Todd had babies together.

And by better I mean much more amusing for me, although more dangerous to the general population.

Blogger yournamehere said...

knitty,
I have a fear of the weigh-ins. I have to lose weight or I feel ashamed.

nick,
courage, etc.? On sale at Target. Don't hate yourself, though. I just want my damn pants to fit.

kat,
I think Chris Farley was preserved like Lenin, and his body is on display at his childhood home.

jj,
I love In-n-Out and pizza. Way too much.

molly,
thank, dear. Good luck to you, too.

bob,
once again, please don't hate yourself.

Blogger yournamehere said...

canoworms,
thanks. I love being called "sugar" by southern girls. Happy birthday!!

bob,
that's what I'm trying to avoid.

von smartass,
I've been stalking you for months. I'm going out right now to get your haircut.

jo,
I'm just being realistic.

doggrrrl,
your self-control is inspiring.

brooke,
I can only hope you love me half as much as I love you.

ubie,
will you be Milf of Honor at the wedding? If I marry a girl named von smartass, I'm taking the last name as my own.

Blogger mona said...

Wow, you're gonna be so hot.
Just don't die getting there

Blogger JackassJimmy said...

Dude I wish you all the luck and follow through in the world. I have tried several times and it's a no go for me.

Besides there is something ironically funny about being so fat you make the band skip, when dancing at a concert.

Cheers,
Jackass

Blogger WunEyedDog said...

I recommend bicycling. Nice exercise and relatively low impact. Just my suggestion. Running will drop pounds like nothing else, but you have to be pretty masochistic.

Blogger tango jellybean said...

Todd, you could always go the "Nicole Ritchie Cocaine Diet"! Best of luck, babe. You should call our girl Chrissy--she has the points system memorized, but more importantly, she knows exactly how many points are in just about every beer and liquor known to man.
