Today is Tuesday January 26th, 2016. There are 278 days until Halloween. (Gay Christmas) Which means I have 278 days to lose about 100 pounds of fat, gain about 50 pounds of muscle, to look damn good in my costume.
Is it crazy to concerned with Halloween 278 days ahead of time? I don’t think so. If there’s one thing I picked up from my six year stint as a member of the Boy Scouts of America, it’s “Be Prepared.” It’s really the only thing that stuck and this might be the first time in my adult life that I’m using it.
Being a gay man, it’s always been my dream to partake in the unabashed partial nudity Halloween permits. You’ve seen ’em: Shirtless cowboys in denim lycra trunks, shirtless Super Marios in red lycra trunks, Skeletons, sexy cops in lycra trunks etc.
|Here’s me with a poster that’s speaking my truth.|
I don’t have either. I’ve got 245.5 pounds of solid lipids, spread out over 5 feet and 7 inches. That has always left me feeling like an outsider when it comes to gay culture. I’ve always been outgoing and confident, but when it came to meeting other gay guys, I never felt like I quite fit in (with gay guys, or in shirts).
BUT ALL THAT’S ABOUT TO CHANGE because I’m going on a journey and you’re coming with me. I’m going to have to completely reshape my entire body. That means (without exaggeration this time) losing about 50 pounds of fat, gaining about 20 pounds of muscle, and getting taller if possible.
I’ll post once a week to keep you abreast of my progress and my feelings, even if only to maintain some sense of accountability. Thanks for reading and stay tuned! Sexy Halloween 2016 is only 278 days away.
