I'll spare ya the jokes about declaring my dependence from food or any of that crap. I have been slim-fasting I eat one meal a day, frequently a sinful meal from Taco Bell or the likes, and the other meals are slimfast. My competitors, I am told by my competitors, are doing it "the right way." One of them has yet to come within three pounds of the qualifying weight (thereby taking a $250 penalty) and the other has been neck and neck with me (neck in neck? who cares). But, what she does not know is that I am in it to win it, and I don't mind posting this last day before the weight in, my secret. Yesterday and today I have been severely limiting my food AND liquid intake. It is almost 8pm and I've had the following to drink and eat:
- two cans of slimfast (200 calories each)
- one sip of water (a sip is about two ounces)
- two sips of cranberry juice
- five baked beans (about a half teaspoon)
- six cheezits
I expect the rest of the night to follow this plan, and I will eat nothing and drink nothing tomorrow until she gets here for the weigh in. Once I win, I will gloat and then take a day off from the dieting and eat everything and anything that doesn't move and some of what does.
Then it's back to the dieting. The next leg of this race to thin is to October 1st, with tomorrow's weigh-in as the bench-mark. All players will be expected to lose 20lbs to qualify (or give up $250 for the winter round) and the one that loses the most wins the $250 that will be in there from this round's non-20 pounder. This next leg will have more players- Ronk, the Chef, Officer Krupky, the Bean Counter's wife, and your ever lovin Fat Guy. While the pot is only for $250 this time, the money isn't mine. Even better, we have some newbies on this new leg, so I expect we'll have a few people not making weight in October making for an interesting Winter run.
So there you have it. Like an evil villain, I've laid out my plan just before winning, and I am wringing my hands and repeating "Nothing can stop me now!" I have every confidence that my only real competition, the Bean Counter's wife, will not read this until it is too late. She thinks we're neck in neck, but in fact, I am now several pounds out in front. MUHUHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
