I want to quickly mention. That I’m a bit disappointed. With this weightloss. Or should I say lack of more. But while I realize that I’m falling well below my goal of 3-5 lbs. a week I also realize that my weightloss is relative to said goal. Another example of this is my grades. During my undergrad (BA – Psych) I accomplished astoundingly little (aside from actually obtaining my degree). I was miserable. I chose my major in a similar fashion to throwing a dart at a map. I was lost. I was not passionate. I came out with something like a 62% average. For a reference point. That is so low that if I had ever left the program. I wouldn’t qualify to get back in lol. But I passed. I got my degree. Now I’m back. Working towards something (English Literature) that I have very little experience in (I never took past the required first year English) but hopefully more than enough passion for. And this last year. I set my sights very high. I will need 78% just to qualify. 85% to be competitive. 90% to be really competitive. 95% to go to Harvard (that’s a joke, I’m clearly not going to Harvard). I didn’t expect it would be easy. I’m not even sure I expected to get anywhere near on my first try. But this year I ended with a 82% average. Fucking Amazing (for me). But still. A bit of a disappointment. Because of where my goals lie. And the weightloss. Is kind of like that. 82% compared to the 62% I was pulling back in the day is fucking phenomenal. Just like 23 lbs. in 10 weeks is. But don’t worry. Not reaching my goals yet. Won’t keep me down. It’ll just get me working harder. Time to step my game up.

So just a quick update on my journey towards BEING the biggest loser and subsequently my journey away from DATING the biggest losers. I know I said I was going to take a break from online dating until I lost 25 lbs. but well…I changed my mind (stranger things have happened). This decision was likely do to the following:
1. I am feeling pretty darn svelte these days
2. My desire to practice more so I don’t let wildcards (fix link) slip through my fingers
3. It’s been about 3-4 weeks since I left POF (just over 2 since I told you guys)
4. Honestly, to help counteract the urge to meetup with Mega Love (which I’ll be honest still hasn’t officially been decided one way or the other)
So I’m 23 lbs. down and back on PlentyofFish. Look out boys. Mamma’s coming to town. And she’s hungry. It’s only been about 3 days so I wouldn’t have expected too much.
There was the one guy who IM’d me. We chatted aimlessly but amicably enough for about an hour. Haven’t heard from him since. No huge loss. The only reason he’s even worth the mention is simply because I plan to mention him in the following post and so this is your little precursor (take note).
Next were the messages back and forth. And back and forth. With the. Wait for it. Wait for it. 21 year old. Who actually told me he had balls. Promising. But has as of yet failed to use them. But there’s still potential.
Following him, we have messages back and forth between Trucker Joe* and I. Numbers have been exchanged and mentions of coffee occured. But I’ve learned not to put all the ball’s in my mouth (not quite sure about that analogy but you get the gist…ya know…eggs…basket…counting) so I’ll keep you posted.
And last but not least we have Mr. Clean*. We’re still only at the very most beginning point of messaging. But frankly he’s a babe. He’s seems fun. So he earned himself a mention. I’ll keep you posted.
*Explanation of names and stats to follow in subsequent posts.
