How Fat is Fatboy?

Kicking BackThis was the e-mail that I woke up to this morning from Beautiful since she wakes up way before me to get ready for work… I just make her sandwich every morning before she leaves. 😉 I e-mailed back later and said “115 before breakfast, but I should be 120 by bedtime.”

But everyone else wants to know, too.

She’s right. As always. I’ve been remiss in calorie counting, weighing myself, and eating like a Big Texan steak challenger for more than a month because of the end of college. I’m not ignoring the site out of shame for not weighing 125 – rather a sheer lack of time and energy to do everything else and the site. The site’s taken a back seat, but I should be popping on nearly every day again once my creative juices have refilled my tank. Right now, I’m trying to balance working my tail off to pay bills and taking after this fella on the right.

It’s been unbelievable how much these last 5 weeks wore on my body, but I’m still recovering. I’m definitely worn down, but I’m supposed to be getting more T-shots coming soon and I’m starting on a new month of Cayston because I dread to think what my PFTs are at the moment after a stressful month without it. They say your numbers drop on the off months, but this is ridiculous if what I am experiencing is considered normal for Cayston off months.

So, with vacation coming up in the middle of June, I’m going to take drastic action if the Cayston isn’t working so I can be off the balloons by the time we leave. It’s a pretty nice window to hit (since they never put me on for more than 2 weeks), but I’ll have to work in a clinic visit almost right away if I don’t feel up to snuff because they want PFT numbers before doing anything since non-transplant clinic is only on Fridays.

That’s where I am, folks. Tired. Still above weight, but not a porker. Stressed to build the business. Trying to get my self-diagnosed numbers up with Cayston. Will start up exercising M/W/F in the community gym again next week after Cayston kicks in.


  1. Patience, my friend, patience. The last months of college put me on IVs. You'll get the weight back. I lost 10 percent lung function every off month of CCR. Like clockwork.

    Nice post. I enjoyed it.

  2. Thanks. I've got clinic on Friday morning now. I've been told by Beautiful
    that there is no way I need IVs now because I'm still dragging her around
    the grocery store because she won't walk fast enough.
