Chapter 1

Good evening ladies and gentleman boys and girls and welcome to Michael is a fatty.....THE BLOG!

Sometimes it is a doctors note, sometimes it is a loved one pushing you or sometimes a smoking hot blond looks at you screams and runs in the other direction.

Well it was'nt quite that bad but you get the picture. But hey Michael don't hate, Michael appreciate(s). after a certain comment made on the staircase at school about how I didn't let the dogs out, I ate them,
I did what every mans man would do. I ran to the bathroom and cried my eyes out!

But while in there I looked into the mirror and stifled a scream, at 257 pounds I ain't no Brad Pitt, in fact I'm more likely to get a lead roll in the blob movie.


For the next 6 weeks I am going to do everything in my power to make sure that I can come home in my skinny jeans and do a fancy twirl. (my skinny jeans may or may not be a size 36)
I know it isn't going to be easy, losing weight sounds easy in the head or even on paper but how easy is it to get off the couch and jump onto the treadmill? Today I found out that it is not that hard.
I went to the mall, found myself a cutsie little outfit to wear, (that showed everyone every corner of my girth!) I got some fancy new shoes and of course I had to buy an 80's headband. So here I am in my room all
dressed up, looking fly for a white what?

where is the gym?
how much does it cost?
when is it open?

uh-oh....I didn't think this through.....

But wait! EUREKA! How many colleges don't have gyms?
so I trundled on down to my handy dandy gym, flashed my handy dandy student ID, and swaggered myself up 2 flights of stairs to the gym( let the record show that the 2 flights of stairs were almost enough for one day)

It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be as soon as I got there, I didn't feel like anyone was judging me, and I was just free to do what I wanted to.

thanks to a link from a fellow blogger (alexupnorth) I found a website that gives out a ton of useful information on starter programs to get into the swing of things.

apparently I need the starter to the starters guide though. It was pretty rough

focusing mainly on arms today, and I can say that even though it is maybe some excess adrenaline, I do feel good about myself. more for the fact that I started doing it instead of talking about doing it

so here is the facts jack:

Weight:257 pounds
waist: 38"

I'm gonna be going to the gym working on a different aspect of my body every day ( minus weekends since the gym is closed).

and record the changes that I have noticed.

so come along for the ride, watch me succeed, or heaven forbid watch me fail in what I can only call the David v. Goliath fight of the century: my weight lose!
