My Man Tits & My Precious

Author: Tafari, Wednesday, November 7th, 2007 at 4:23 AM
Last Thursday I finally broke down & got a membership at my local Powerhouse gym. Over the last 2 months I was debating on if I was going to join because I was not sure that I would be disciplined enough to accomplish a weight loss goal.

I guess looking in the mirror at my little man tits gave me motivation to drop 460 bucks to drop some pounds. Suite Suzy calls them stage 1 tits.

It has been less than a week & I am already feeling the positive benefits of working out. My energy level has increased, I have noticed a more positive mood & best of all, I have dropped 3 pounds already.

My routine consists of doing 11 circuit weight machines then rounding out with 20 minutes on an elliptical machine, which takes me about 1½ hours. And let me tell you, I have mos def been feeling the burn! I think in the next few weeks I will be use to the feeling & my muscles will be less sore.

So now that my good news is out, it is time for the bad.

  • I am drinking much more water & now I am peeing all the damn time.
  • When I work out, I fart almost out of control. Luckily there is a lot of noise & blowing air. I hope no one finds me out.
  • I LOST MY WEDDING RING @ THE GYM!!! Yes, I lost it yesterday & I am totally devastated. I took it off placed it in my gym bag then locked it up. This morning when I checked my bag for it, it was nowhere to be found. I called the gym & no one turned it in & this evening when I went to work out, I asked again & still nothing.

Now I have to decide if I am going to file a claim to get a new ring or just go without. This is actually the 2nd ring that I have lost s I am like over replacing rings. The first time, it slipped off my finger when I fell up (yes I fell up) some stairs at work in a parking garage. After searching for it for 2 hours under cars, behind tires & up & down the stair well with Suite Suzy, we called off the mission.

Anyway, I will make periodic updates on my gym status so stay tuned for a less byg bygbaby.

    Ha! You take that camera every where else – take it to the gym, we wanna see.

    Anyway – I work out too – and let me tell you, that elliptical is a biatch. At first, I could only go about 5 minutes – but two years later, it’s a piece of cake. I can hit it for about 45 minutes non-stop at a great speed…when I come off I feel like jello – but hey, it’s cool.

    And um 460 is a lot of money. They don’t have discount gyms or something by you?

    Oh yea, I poot too – all the time at the gym. It’s scientific though – something about moving around a lot and internal gasses escaping or something like that. Hell, i can’t help it.

    DTW – I thought about it but I am not sure if they allow them in, besides, I don’t want to “lose” it either (I wish there where were more honest people in the world!)

    People on the elliptical be going fast as hell & it trips me out just to watch them. I am pacing myself because I do not want a fucking heart attack LOL.

    I decided to pay for a year upfront instead of the monthly fee, it actually made it a little cheaper.

    No you didn’t say “poot” LOL!!!!!!

    I made a few comments about this in your biz card post, but had one more thing to add so I figured I’d put under the post where it belongs. :)

    Check out http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/index.html. They have a lot of resources and tips on training and eating. It’s not necessarily ALL about bodybuilding, despite what it looks like. As with anything, cross-check/reference anything you see that you have questions about.

    Enjoy! [Oh, and ignore the supplement ads…it’s worth it for the content otherwise]

    I lost a lot of weight by eliminating rice and refined flour–basically no white foods.

    Byg,
    This is why I read your blog every other day. You always say something that makes me want to just fall out in tears crackin’ up. “When I work out, I fart almost out of control. Luckily there is a lot of noise & blowing air. I hope no one finds me out.” Oh baaaaaaaaaaaby, they gonna find you out.

    On the foreala, good luck on the weight loss. I just came from the Dr.’s this morning and I’m 11lbs lighter from 8/27. So, I’m rootin’ for ya.


  6. Carla Says:

    BB, you are hilarious! And you have motivated me to get my ever-growing butt back in the gym! Good luck to you. Hope you reach your goals! :)


  7. Naturally Sophia Says:

    I am glad you are making an effort to be healthy. But you are too funny. lmbao as always! How are you changing your eating habits?


  8. Goodnapps Says:

    You definitely know how to keep us ROTFL!!

    Make it a habit and you’ll be in good shape in no time.


  9. Bygbaby Says:

    Tamra – thx for the link, I will check it out!

    Renea – Ooooh, I am not sure if I can go there yet. I think I am addicted to rice (had it for lunch). Maybe down the live that may be a process that I need to go through.

    Ro – You go Boo!!! You are dropping that bottom also.

    Carla – Thx for stopping by, keep me posted on your progress & lets keep each other motivated.

    Naturally Sophia – I am making small modifications such as more water, whole fruit of nuts for snacks & smaller meals. I am not being scientific at all but the smaller meals portion I think will mos def help my cause.

    Goodnapps – I am looking forward to being a more fit me!!!

    Yeah for you at the gym!

    I try to focus on the health aspects — when I focus on losing weight per se, it makes me neurotic.

    We’re going to live to be 100, so I think what we do now will go far towards determining what the last 30 years of our life will be like. Truth be told, I can even tell the difference in the X years that I have been 26!


  11. byrdparker Says:

    Good for you!!!

    what is the purpose of the word verification ? i cannot seem to get a comment to you , i hope this works .

    I WANT TO KNOW WHAT U WORE TO LE NUBIANS , CAN U TAKE A PHOTO OF THE CAPE ?


  12. Bygbaby Says:

    Brunsli – Thx & you go. if I make it to 100 that will be great! Hopefully that will include a good quality of life.

    Byrdparker – I turned on word verification because I was getting spammed. I just turned it off so lets see what happens.

    I wore a Nigerian Agbada, which is a ceremonial robe.

    That thing is huge but next time I rock it, I will post a closer snapshot. The one I have is approx 150 years old (not cheap at all) so I treat it with TLC.

    From my ” Pieces from the African World” post (http://tinyurl.com/38laon)
    Agbada is the Yoruba name for a type of flowing wide sleeved robe, usually decorated with embroidery, which is worn throughout much of Nigeria by important men, such as kings and chiefs, and on ceremonial occasions like weddings and funerals. The Hausa name for the robes is riga.

    Although today they are often still made from hand-woven cloth, the painstaking and beautiful hand embroidery that was used in the past is very rarely seen. Fine old robes have become family heirlooms passed on from father to son and worn with pride at major celebrations.

    In the past prestige robes were traded over vast distances and similar or related garments are found throughout much of West Africa.

    Brunsli – Yes 2, I know, I know. I will never live this down.


  14. Erica C. Says:

    Wish you much success with the weight loss man. Now to your wedding ring, you keep it up with those shenanigans if you want to…SS is gonna tear you a new one before it’s over with!LOL


  15. Bygbaby Says:

  16. Liz Says:

    My husband has also lost two wedding rings. Oh well, I’ll get around to getting him another one soon.

    Seriously, good for you to commit to taking off the lbs. You can definitely do it and you’ll feel so much better. Both me and my husband have lost around 20 pounds in the past two years. I’m working on another seven.


  17. Bygbaby Says:

    Damn Liz, you are nice. I am on my own. Well we have insurance but I know if I file a claim, the rate will go up.

    So yesterday, I told Suite Suzy, that I would rather have a new lens for my camera vs another ring that may get lost.

    So I will being playing things by ear.

    I hope we all reach our goals!!!

  18. Peajai Says:

    Work it out!! A friend of mine swears by the elliptical, I am amazed at how fast she goes on it. I tried it but didn’t like it, the stride wasn’t long enough, my thighs were too close together, I just didn’t feel comfortable.

    But although I would never admit to having pooted in public, issues like that and worrying about looking cute while I am working out is exactly why I have a $1500 treadmill in lay-a-way. I just feel like I’ll work out better if I don’t have an audience. I’m sure it’s different for men though. Good luck on your weight loss!


  19. Renea Says:

    Hi Byg–
    I didn’t drop the rice on purpose. I’m from New Orleans, we have rice on the table at breakfast. No…this summer I was just too hot and lazy to cook especially to fire up a big humid pot of water to boil rice or pasta. But I lost 15 lbs, and I am not trying to gain it back so I only have rice, bread or pasta once or twice a week not seven or eight like I usually did.


  20. Renea Says:

    And I am not going to comment on your man tits because I’m afraid you’ll take a picture of them and post it!…smile.


  21. Bygbaby Says:

    Peejai – You have legit concerns & you have to do what you have to do, so work it out boo!

    Renea – OK, that is a lot of damn rice & I can see why you would want to stop!!!

    Man tit pics are coming soon so get ready to see some abnormally large man nipples LOL!!!!!!

  22. Lola Gets Says:

    Good luck on the new health kick!

  23. GC Says:

    oh, my word.
    you’re the smelly guy at the gym.

    hey, your ring might turn up. Hope it does anyway.


  24. Bygbaby Says:

    Lola – Suite Suzy holds nothing back, then again neither do I.

    GC – Yes, it is I, LOL… Yes it was found waded up in a smelly t-shirt that I tossed in the dirty clothes the night it was “lost”.
