Harness Weight

I am not going to be at “harness weight” for this weekend’s Pride festivities.

I’m not even exactly sure what harness weight IS for me, but it’s definitely less than I weigh at the moment.  After all, I want it to look like a harness… not a truss or a corset.

At this point I am planning on consuming enough alcohol that it won’t matter much to me if I end up looking like a pork roast.  I still have the intention to venture out to the Eagle on Friday night while sporting it.  Just to say I did it, of course.  We’ll see though.

I’m a little bummed, however.

I seem to have reached a “sticking point” on my weight.  I hope that it’s because I’m simply redistributing some of my weight to other areas.  It does feel like my arms are rubbing against more “lats” when I walk, but I can’t be sure.  And my pants do seem to fit better and the belt is down a couple notches.

What I do know is that as pissy as the Wii Fit is to me,  I’ll feel I deserve to be all pissy right back.  Fuckin’ bitch.  I’m STILL FAT!

I’m using my Wii fairly regularly for strength training (lots of the pushups, plank holds, core strengthening, etc) in addition to yoga and balance for overall toning.

I’ve also really been trying to watch what I eat and I’ve been monitoring my diet fairly closely.  This is basically the list of food I’ve been eating for months now:

  • low carb wraps
  • yogurt
  • cheese
  • almonds
  • granola
  • soy milk
  • salad
  • tuna
  • chicken
  • Atkins protein bars
  • some diet soda
  • coffee
  • occasional bread (for lunch sandwiches)
  • occasional berries and dried fruits
  • soup

This isn’t to say that I haven’t cheated and gotten Wendy’s or pizza every so often.  But then I work out like a fiend the next day to make up for it.

As it is, I’m working out about 5 times a week, with a minimum of 45 minutes of intense cardio work.  I alternate workout types (bike, swim, run, elliptical, etc). This past weekend I did a two hour bike ride on Saturday, and then on Sunday did my first 5 mile outdoor run.

Heck, I’m even eating a fast lunch so that I can go for a 35-minute speed walk over my lunch hour!

All to no avail, it would appear.

And yes, I know.  I need to be doing more “weight lifting” so that I can build more muscle.  This is unfortunately something I’ve never been very good at.  It’s not like I can’t lift weights, it’s just that I have no patience to move metal plates back and forth or up and down.

I’d much rather work my shoulders by setting a volleyball 500 times than do X number of reps of shoulder presses at the gym.  Or work my entire upper body by swimming two miles.

You see my dilemma here?

So at the present I’m screwed.  I’ll continue to ramp up my workouts and trim down what I eat.  And if that doesn’t work, It looks like my next option may be a diet of exlax and Alli.

    I’m sure you’ll look just great in your harness on Friday night.

    Sounds like you are doing everything right. Only thing I’d say is to cut out the diet soda. It isn’t good for you and I think it makes you hungrier!

  3. madhouse6 says:

    you look very good.

    i keep telling you that.

    Rome wasn’t built in a day. Your new, buff body won’t be, either. Your’re on the right track, so keep on truckin’! (No reference to the recent post, but hey–that activity IS a great calorie-burner!)

    I’d totally sidle up to you in a harness this weekend, dude. If you’re interested in obsessing more than you already are about food intake, you might want to take a look at when you eat as much as what. When I dropped some dramatic ell-bees a few years ago, it seemed (to me) to be in large part due to not eating after 7PM and not lying prone, watching DVDs, immediately after eating.

    Also, you might want to try going a little easier on yourself. You look great, you’ve made progress. Celebrate this weekend!

    BTW, whatever that is in the picture, it looks downright NASTY. You might bring it back in the future as a caption contest.

    Please do wear your harness this weekend and have a great time (and how about a few pics too?).

    Sex sex and more sex is the best way to loose weight! I am sure you will look fab and remember I want to see pics 😉

    My advise is to wear your harness with Pride to Pride. Who of us ISN’T a work in progress? I’m sure you’ll look terrific and some hot guy will be totally turned on by you in that harness AND by your self-confidence.

    Keep exercising and watching your diet, but relax and enjoy the Pride weekend!

    Mark 🙂

  9. Hoist your hot self out there with pride! You’ve worked hard to get where you are. Fuck ’em. Wait until they reach your age (he he he) and see what they look like then! 😉

    honey, i feel your pain… i guess one good thing about richmond is that i dont have to hit harness weight until september… but that is also a lot of time for cookouts and drinks in the sun….hmmm

  11. try strapping on some of those velcro ankle weights when you walk… or put on a backpack with a couple of bricks in it… it will increase the intensity of the work out.

    Important question. Are you doing 5-6 small meals or on the 3 meals a day idea. A number of smaller meals works better. You actually can burn off calories more easily because your using up what you eat and if you don’t get to the point of feeling like “you’re starving” your body won’t go into storage mode and start converting any food you’ve been eating into fat.

    Also, if you are exercising a lot, the scales aren’t your friend. If you aren’t budging on the scale but your pants fit better, it means you are putting on lean weight and burning off fat. So congrats. You haven’t hit a plateau, you’ve achieved a goal.

    DUDE! easy on yourself. bstewart gave you hottie kudos! Run with that!

    And what did I tell you about knocking yourself and self pity after you just had the weekend fuck-a-palooza you just had….
    You may not be the MOST buff guy at the Eagle in a harness this weekend, but if yours is like Chicago’s, you won’t be the heaviest either. You’re a hottie cb… go for it!

    fashion thought though… sexy pig leather and Dolce/Gabbana may not go together… wear contacts?

  14. RG says:

    Get over it already! It’s Pride weekend.

    Put on that harness, strut you stuff and go have a great time! Shake that money maker baby!

    It’s so hard for us to judge without a pic of you in the harness, handsome….
