Day 52: The Pool

Update: 228.6 lbs, 29.6 lbs so far, 8.4 left to reach goal.

No, not that kind of pool. Although there will be a massive pool at Kah Nee Ta, and the Trussell's poor Japanese (at least we all think she must be from Japan) exchange student will have to see what most of you will never have to endure when I get in to play with my kids, I'm not speaking of the swimming pool. I'm talking about the Official Guess the Date And Win Starbucks Pool. So far, you have a 1 in 5 chance of winning, if you've sent along an official entry. Dates picked so far, in chronological order, are:

Mistee - 4/4
Syd - 4/5
Michael - 4/10
SeagravesJ - 4/25 - (updated!)
Joe - 4/27

I'll be taking entries through tomorrow's post (and any comments to that post will count), which will probably be my last post until at least Saturday, and possibly Sunday. The best way to add an entry, or modify your previous entry, is to comment here in this post. I've turned on anonymous posting, so you don't have to register or anything, if you want some of this action (big stakes, you know you want it.)

Once again, I'm trying to hit my first major goal of 38 lbs. I've lost 29.6 so far in 52 days, and have 8.4 left to go. I'm in a bit of a slowdown again, so you may want to take that into consideration. Originally I was hoping I'd hit it at the 2 month mark, or beginning of April, but unless I lose an arm, I don't think that's going to happen...however, guess as you best feel led.

The person who picks the actual date, or date closest to when I hit my goal, will receive a Starbucks drink of their choice, or a gift card, if you're not in the area...my treat. I weigh in between 6 and 7 each morning, and post shortly thereafter. In the event of a tie, we'll draw the names from a hat...I'm a fair guy, I promise.

On another note, last night we had a kickin' pork tenderloin with a mango mint salsa, and all I could think about while eating dinner, was this video.

Hit 10lbs today!!! I've been fighting that last pound for almost a week now... but this morning I got it. And that's pre-biz, (if you follow me) so who knows actual weight.

Paul said...

Ha. Pre-biz. Nice phraseology. We've been known to use the phrase pre - 'visit from the uncle'

Paul said...

PS - GREAT work on hitting the goal, nice job, that's so cool.

Paul - you need to post that kicking pork and salsa recipe on The Daily Plate's Healthy Cooking message board! Sounds scrumptious!

Okay, I want to change my guess to April 25.
