18 months ago, I hurt my back. Gained a lot of weight (40 pounds.) I gained the weight because I couldn't really do much with a hurt back for almost 4 months, and so I just lay around feeling sorry for myself, eating Kentucky Fried Chicken and Cinnabons. Since then, I've lost some of my weight. I've lost 20 pounds, but I'm still too heavy. I need motivation to lose the last 20 pounds. So, here's what I'm going to do. I'm going to work my ass off and lose weight. Some time between now and Christmas, I'm going to post on this thread a shirtless picture of myself. If I am fat, I expect all of you to mock me mercilessly. This will give me an incentive to get lean. If I fail to post this picture by December 10, 2013, the first person to point out my failure in this thread after December 10 will receive from me a $200 gift certificate to a Style Forum affiliate of your choice. So, I now have some skin in the (fat) game.
