Food is For Fuel

Losing weight is like starting to unwrap a present on Christmas morning with the knowledge you might be unwrapping it for the rest of your life.

I found that on Fitocracy’s spotlight of one of their members, Vainglory. His story is one that I can’t directly relate to, but I’m sure many can. With the help of and fitocracy he is down to *half* his previous size. Wow. If you want to know more, he has his own blog at

Vainglory's Before and After

Fitocracy is an intriguing site… I didn’t look around much, but it looks like it’s essentially a massive fitness game! It’s not open to the public just yet, but I requested an invite 🙂

I’ll have an update later about my own progress, I just wanted to share this lovely little morsel.

      Thanks so much, I really appreciate it!

      And once again, wow.

      I’m down 10 pounds so far, and your quote about weight loss as a present really resonated with me. Even if I’m not losing as quickly as I’d like, I’m still losing, and I get to continue to unwrap this gift every day!

        Awesome 🙂 My wife started with me and has dropped 80 lbs so far — it seems like women have a harder time with cravings but she’s still kicking ass. I think you will too. Biggest thing is to not lose focus.

        Woops, posted too fast! The big thing is not punishing yourself for losing focus, so you don’t try to avoid punishment in the future by quitting.
