That's What I'm Talkin' About!

You may remember my From Creepy Thin Man to Incredible Bulk post from way back October 2003. This was around the time when I first made the big decision to refine my eating habits and watch my weight. The photo below is "Exhibit B" from the said post. Truth is I still find it pretty disturbing.

Doesn't send the good kind of shivers down your spine, does it? Anyway, I was hoping to have shed a significant amount of pounds by November 1, 2003 as I originally wrote in the abovementioned post. Unfortunately, the seafood-and-stairs combo wasn't enough. I figured that if I was seriously considering slimming down, I had to include frequent exercise in my routine. I've been regularly going to the gym since June 2004, which most of you already know. I have Pi, Pats, and Zane to thank for that.

The following photo was taken during our trip to Puerto Galera over a week ago. Well, suffice to say there have been big...improvements. *wink*

It's a very rewarding feeling, knowing that your hard work is paying off (I wish I could always say the same about other things though).


It Hurts So Much It's Not Funny Anymore

I hate this.

Anyway, squeezing in this post (while I can) just so you know I'm still alive. In case you didn't notice I've temporarily disabled Haloscan usage here...I recently discovered that they only keep comments from the last 3 months or so, which sucks big time. And since your comments mean a lot to me, I've enabled Blogger's comments feature instead. Still in the process of tweaking the whole thing though so bear with crappy layout.

Check back later. Duty calls.
