I, MARC JACOBS, FORMERLY MORBIDLY OBESE, 309 POUND MAN, NO LONGER EXIST. That particular man is dead, and thankfully, not actually buried. But he is gone.
I. MARC JACOBS, am CURRENTLY a 209 POUND MAN, and thinking about what 200 pounds might look like...
I DID LOSE 100 POUNDS.
I WILL HAVE MUCH MORE TO SAY ABOUT THIS TOMORROW...
RIGHT NOW, I HAVE TO LET THIS SINK IN....
I DID LOSE 100 POUNDS.
. . . . . . . . . . . .
It was the fitbit, that guided me through the last lap on the way to a 100 pound weight loss...as I will explain...
I found an article, Just How Critical Are the First 100 Days? published by Houghton Mifflin and written by William Lasser. The article about the first 100 days of a presidential administration appeared to be lifted from a college textbook. Here were the first two paragraphs.
Every journey starts with a single step, and every presidency begins with the First 100 Days. Ever since 1933, when President Franklin D. Roosevelt used his first three months in office to lay the foundations of the New Deal, the First 100 Days have been seen as a unique moment--the new president's first and perhaps best chance to reshape the nation according to his own agenda and vision.
Success in the First 100 Days, however, has never meant a guarantee of success later. Nor have early difficulties necessarily doomed a presidency to failure or mediocrity. Like the early returns on election night, the First 100 Days will be the subject of great interest and speculation. But they should also be viewed with skepticism, prudence, and caution.
Past Performance is No Guarantee of Future Results.
However, when it comes to fitness, a successful first 100 days, is a good place to start. Today, begins day 101 as a fitbitter. I wonder where I will be on the scale another 100 days from now. When I know, you'll know.
