The Weight is Over!


Hello Funkidians,

I know I promised a blog about rock n' roll, but that will have to wait. This week is special because I've reached a special goal. As I blogged back in September, I've had a huge change in lifestyle surrounding my health. No, I did not join "The Biggest Loser" Club, but I can relate. The bottom line is, On January 28, 2008 I reached 100 pounds of weight loss.

I'll have to get some before/after pictures and post them later, but I've lost 10 inches in my waist, gone from a 4XL to XL in shirts, and after being on 240 units of insulin a day, I'm insulin free for six weeks now. My last blood report came back "non-diabetic."

This is NOT a plateau for me. I have no intentions of changing anything that got me to where I am. I will continue with the food plan, the exercise regimen, and the reporting of the food that so aided my battle. I don't want to go back.

So Funkyman has defeated yet another foe - his arch-nemesis Chunkyman. He will continue to blog and fight the forces of ignorance and the inability to be creative.

Onward ho!

- Funkyman

This is great news, David. But having not seen you in FIVE years, I don't know which commemorative stamp I would buy the whippet-thin new Funkyman or the jolly turkey leg-eating Funkyman.
