Five percent by Marscon
After eating way too much on New Year's Eve and New Years Day at my sister's house, I stepped on the scale on Jan 2. 284.0 lb. *burp*
I went to a site that was able to calculate the daily intake of a man my height, weight and age and figured out a plan to try to lose weight.
Noticing that other friends are also trying to shed holiday weight, I pledged on my show last Thursday night to lose 5 percent of my weight by Marscon (Bloomington, MN sci-fi convention) which is March 6-8. I did ask others to join me in that but have gotten very little response. Still, on my last day of work before the con, March 4, I plan on stepping on the scale and having it read less than 269.8 lb.
If not, I will not be able to enjoy all the yummy food and alcohol there (along with the atmosphere and presentations which make it most enjoyable) and have to stay on my plan.
