Day 20

12:05 P.M.

My current weight is 210.8 pounds.  I had a 99-cent bag of trail mix this morning.  I also got a couple snacks at the gas station last night.  I don't know how long I can go without eating today.  I'll probably take a shower and take a walk in a little bit.

12:10 P.M.

I've watched five movies since starting this blog:
1. Chef
2. The Avengers
3. American Ultra
4. The Founder
5. South Park:  Bigger, Longer & Uncut

Then I watched the first episode of The Chef Show on Netflix, and it was pretty bad.  The best parts of Chef were the cooking scenes, because they were like music videos.  I don't want to hear people actually talking during the scenes, though.  One reason I watched Chef is because people on Reddit would always bring it up as an example of a movie with no antagonists.  But then I watched it and was like, 'Hey, that Reva guy is clearly the antagonist.'

12:15 P.M.

I should probably stop browsing the /r/movies subreddit on Reddit.  Sometimes there will be an interesting news item at the top of the subreddit.  And then other times you see threads with titles like, "The Sonic the Hedgehog movie is really fun and has a lot of heart."  What the fuck?  I watched that fucking Sonic movie.  You can't fool me into thinking it was a good movie, /r/movies subreddit!  The thread got 440 upvotes.  

12:50 P.M.

I'm at 211.4 pounds right now.  Fucking water and Coke Zero.  Why do liquids have to have weight to them?

2:00 P.M.

I'm at 211.8 pounds right now.  God damnit, that's what I was at yesterday.  I haven't lost even 2/10ths of a pound in a day?  This is infuriating!

2:25 P.M.

I'll gonna go take a walk.  I still haven't eaten anything today except the 99-cent bag of trail mix.  It's good that I can regularly make it into the afternoon without eating much.  

3:45 P.M.

I took about a 30-minute walk.  Now to cool off for a bit.

4:00 P.M.

I'm at 211.4 pounds right now.  So I've stayed at the exact same weight for the last three hours.

4:15 P.M.

The key now is not to eat for a while.  I'll do the 5-minute interval thing.  I still haven't eaten anything today except for that 99-cent bag of trail mix.

4:20 P.M.

If you lose 1 pound every 8 hours, then that means every 96 minutes I should lose 2/10ths of a pound.  So by 5:30 P.M. I should be 211.2 pounds.

4:25 P.M.

Actually, it would be around 5:35 P.M. or 5:40 P.M. that I should be 211.2 pounds.  Damn, that's an even longer weight.  Okay, I'll wait until 5:40 P.M. to weigh myself again.

4:30 P.M.

70 minutes to go.

5:10 P.M.

30 minutes to go.

5:20 P.M.

I'm kind of surprised people haven't totally abandoned Netflix yet.  The main reason I watch Netflix is to watch un-original programming.  You know, movies or TV shows that came out years ago.  I don't care about their original programming, except for GLOW, and they fucking cancelled that.  Dave Chappelle comes out with some comedy specials, and those are nice.  But aside form GLOW and Dave Chappelle, what original programming is worth watching?  The Chef Show was bad, and I tried watching this knock-off version of Drugs, Inc., but it didn't have the same feel, so that was bad as well.  I checked my "List" on Netflix.  Out of 11 titles, 10 of them are non-original.  There's only one Netflix title I have on my List right now.  At some point I figure there's just going to be a complete exodus.  I mean, "Easy A" is leaving on March 1st.  Why would I subscribe to a streaming service that doesn't have "Easy A"?  

5:25 P.M.

The Twitter app tells me Shawn Michaels is trending right now with 4,779 tweets, and I don't even know why.  The fuck has he done today?  He's been retired for 11 years.  Let me check...

5:30 P.M.

So, on February 24th there was a short clip of an NBA player trying to do a kip-up, and I guess that video went viral because is has 912,000 views.  The tweet with the clip was made at 8:53 P.M., so maybe that's the reason why my Twitter app tells me Shawn Michaels is trending almost two days later.  The WWE Twitter account mentioned him in a tweet that it made about 4 hours ago, and about an hour ago Fightful posted a clip of Shawn Michaels hitting Shelton Benjamin with a superkick, although Fightful might have just been riding the "trending" wave.

5:35 P.M.

5 minutes to go.  I still haven't eaten anything today except for a 99-cent bag of trail mix

5:45 P.M.

I still weight 211.4 pounds.  So I haven't lost any weight since 4:00 P.M.

5:50 P.M.

Well at least I've gone another 5 minutes without eating.

5:55 P.M.

Alright, I took a leak and I'm down to 211.0 pounds, which is exactly what I weight at 6:15 P.M. yesterday.  So it's been almost a day and I'm at the exact same weight.  I'll give it another 20 minutes to see if anything changes.  

6:15 P.M.

I probably would've lost a pound today if it weren't for that bag of trail mix.

6:50 P.M.

I still haven't eaten anything today except for a 99-cent bag of trail mix.  You know, it's actually a one-dollar bag of trail mix.  I paid a dollar for it.  Why do I keep saying it's 99 cents?  The bag itself says 99 cents.  Right above the brand name, there's a big red "99 ¢."  But the bodega charges one dollar.

6:55 P.M.

Okay, I'm at 210.8 pounds right now.  I think there was a point a week or so ago where I woke up at 210.8 pounds, so this is, like, the lowest point I've been able to achieve since starting this blog, but I haven't been able to go any lower yet.

7:00 P.M.

I know I have to get dinner at some point.  I'm probably going to get a big dinner so that I'm not tempted to go to the gas station around 11:30 P.M.  I might still go to the gas station to get a Coke Zero, but I want to resist the temptation (if there is one) to get any snacks.

7:05 P.M.

Alright.  I'm at 210.6 pounds right now.  So I think that is the lowest I've been at since starting this blog.

7:40 P.M.

Alright, I went to the Korean market and got a bacon cheeseburger with french fries, a banana and an orange.  I currently weight 210.2 pounds.  I did not pick up either a can or a 2-liter bottle of Coke Zero while I was out, but I thought about it.
