Diet and exercise

I need to go on a diet and get exercise.  This isn't really anything new for anyone who has been friends with me at any point in my life, but it's something that I have decided to finally do something about.  I'm not thinking at all that I need to look like this:

No that would be absolutely unreasonable.  I don't need that.  I just need to look more like say this -

instead of, say, this -

not actually me I promise.

This will be my menu for awhile.  And this will be my exercise plan every other day (the stupid link wouldn't work but the gist of it was I would walk from my house to the Japanese Gardens which would be about a mile and about 30 minutes).  This will not be fun but it will be worth it.*

*If I stick it out.

Indeed, if every man looked like The Thing, the world would be a much better, not to mention safer, place.

But seriously, good on you. When you lose one hundred and whatever pounds you should take a picture with me or Erin and be like, I lost an Elisa/Erin! That would be funny.

Dude, you will be so happy one you do and it won't be that hard to stick to once the pounds start coming off because that will becomes it own reward.

If I can lose 185 pounds, I am sure you can too because I don't just love food - I lust after it. I feel your pain.

Let me know if you ever want to compare notes or anything. I am quite passionate about this subject.

I can't tell you how happy I am to know that strangers no longer describe me as "the really fat guy". I am actually quite ocntent with being described as "the guy going bald."

I think you should opt to look like some guy that has hair instead of a guy that has no hair ;) I am just being silly, but in all honesty good luck! I know it is hard, I lost like 60lbs when I was in high school, and food and exercise is still a struggle for me.
