I did something a few days ago that I haven’t done in a long time. I went shopping. For clothes. Spent damn near three hundred bucks. Bought a bunch of pants, some shirts, a new wallet, and most shocking of all ... shoes. I haven’t owned a pair of shoes in well over four years. They still feel weird, like too light and squishy... If I don't get used to them soon, they're getting tossed. I already had to take an exacto knife to part of the shoe's tongue to get them to fit right. I like my boots better, anyway. Even the stompy ones that wear on that one little spot on my ankle.

Oh yeah, I decided to lose 40 lbs. I weighed 220, and I need to weigh 180 pretty soon. Why, you ask? It's because I plan to get suspended, and the hooks only support 90 lbs each, otherwise they might rip out of my back, and that'd be just no fun at all. Since the hooks have to be used in pairs, 180 is the threshold between two and four hooks. Distribution of weight lessens the load on each individual point, which decreases the intensity of the experience. The intensity is rather the point of the whole thing, so 2 hooks is better than 4. Now _there's _ worthy reason to shed some energy stores, lol! I decided to do this about a week ago, and so far I've lost about 15 lbs. I really can't see any difference, but I had one person say that they could. Hopefully, the rest will fall off just as fast, I've already waited quite long enough for this, and I'm getting all impatient and stuff.

hey, i haven't bought a pair of shoes in a while either. i've been wearing the same boots for 2 1/2 years now. before that, i had a pair (the same kind, except w/ buckles) that lasted for about 3 1/2 - 4 years. i hated tossing them. i brought them to a shoe doctor, but there was nothing they could do for them.

Can I push you when you are suspended....like on a swing set?

why sure you can! I wonder if there's any way I can have it rigged so the hooks let go at the highest part of the swing, so I can get some good distance? That'd be cool, heh.
