Fat Pants

That's all I can wear nowadays.

I have three pairs of pants (excluding sweats and track pants) that are work-appropriate and they are all fat pants. Two pairs of jeans and one pair of "diaper pants" as my wife calls them. She calls them that because they are really baggy, especially in the rear.

"It looks like you took a crap in them" she says.

I never tuck my shirts into my fat pants. Why? Because they would show the fact that even these so-called fat pants are too tight. When I wear my fat jeans, they always leave an imprint on my skin after I take them off. I can always see where the big button pressed against my flabby pooch.

And they are always too long. The worst part is that the inseam is always smaller than the waist. I just came to the realization that I'm wider than I am tall and that scares me.

As much as I hate my damn fat pants, I love my damn fat pants.

Another try

It's been almost eight months since my last post, and I'm sorry to report that I was unable to make any progress on any of my goals. My only positive is several lucky investments that are yielding good returns. Here's a snapshot of where I stand:

  • My weight: 219. It only looks like I gained 5 lbs, but in reality it's more like 10. I managed to drop below 210 over the summer and spent the last 3 months putting it all back on.
  • My health: Not so good. Ive spent the last three or four months eating anything and everything. Not to mention that I've been drinking A LOT of beer.
  • My money: Adding a backyard to a brand new house is very expensive. There was the cement patio, the sod, and the fence. My original 27k now looks more like 18k. On the bright side, my stocks are up $1600 since April (AAPL, SIRI, ING, RMK, and QQQQ). I also have $12000 over at Emigrant Direct which will start getting regular deposits at the beginning of the new year.

So that's what you get when you spend eight months over-spending, over-indulging, and playing World of Warcraft obsessively.

Next step: come up with a plan.

its still exists!

I going to get back into this...more to come tonight!
