In six weeks I have lost 16 pounds.
For Christmas I gave my wife 50 pounds of sugar and a 10 gallon fish tank for storing the sugar. She looked at me quizzically until I explained.
My present to her was a promise to loose 50 pounds by my 50th birthday five months away. The sugar represents the weight I have to loose and the junk food I am giving up to loose the weight.
For each pound I loose, I remove one pound of sugar from the fish tank. We can all see the sugar level going down.
So far I have given my wife 31% of her Christmas present. She is very happy about that.
I made my sweet sixteen!
