Day 125: What 50 Pounds Looks Like

Update: 208.2 lbs, 50 lbs so far, 50 lb Goal Reached Day 124.

I'm not sure why, but every time I Google weight amounts, I always get pictures of fish. And for some reason, I just think picturing me strapping one of these babies on makes a lot of sense. That one to the left is some grandmother who apparently has a habit of catching fish larger than 50 lbs, and that's a 50 lb king salmon. Yep, I was carrying around one of those on me for a while.

I also found a few other 50 lb images. Some more fish of course, a panda bear, and a 50 lb pig, which I think is also appropriate.

I also found a link to some software guys who dropped a 50 lb glob of silly putty from a 7 story roof. Worth taking a look at. And an article on the worlds largest burger at 50 lbs as well. But just in case you're wondering, I'll put up the before and afters. The first is from me when I was rockin' it at just under 260, and the latter being me in my fake bike jersey (can't bring myself to spend the $90 for a real one yet) -- but don't worry, no bike shorts, I promised I wouldn't post those quite yet. (It might be illegal in some states, I'm not quite sure....)

Sorry for the classic JC Penny catalog pose once again, but that's just how I roll. That's it for today, gotta get an early start on the day's events. More thoughts on the 50 lbs later on, and maybe a Paddingtons celebration on Sunday. Whoohoo!

I was going to start with my "non-homo disclaimer" but what the heck... I'll just say it.

You look awesome.
