So you want to lose weight what do you need?

I know what you’re thinking *insert chorus of angels* you need motivation! dedication! perspiration!

Um, yeah, I’m not designing a motivational poster I leave that to these people:

The poster says: What the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.

I say that dude is insane.

But then I’ve finished 36 half marathons in the last 4 years so maybe I shouldn’t be calling anyone else crazy…


So where does that leave us?

Well, we hit the big $60K.

I’ve been trying to figure out how to describe this experience and I think I finally figured it out.

It’s like playing a video game.

Now don’t get me wrong I’m not much of a gamer, I prefer to watch movies or read when I have time but this is like a game. The people aren’t real because you’re never going to meet 2400 strangers. The numbers are crazy (3757 total pounds lost and it started five days ago).  And working out doesn’t feel like a chore, I feel like I’m mentally scoring points towards an immediate goal. And look what I got via email today:

A FREE frothy drink from Starbucks with no strings attached.  And have I used it? Nope. I’m giving it to my dad.

Realistically could I drink it? Sure a tall caramel macchiato is 240 calories according to Starbucks. Same with the tall hazelnut macchiato but 4% is an ambitious goal and I’d rather have the satisfaction of finishing in the green in 24 days.

I’m still eating well and tracking. I didn’t work out today but I was so busy I didn’t eat much. I’ll be curious to see what that does to the scale tomorrow.
