Okay followers, today was a weigh-in, and I am 290 lbs! That is 40 lbs from the day I started this blog and a total weight loss of 43 lbs. That really makes me feel good. I have a long way to go, but I feel a lot better. 5K this weekend! Just going to keep going.
So after my workout today, and after I managed to get one of the small towels they provide around my waste, I headed back for my shower. The locker rooms are connected to the pool area, and each locker room has a hot tub, steam room, and sauna right after you come in from the pool. The showers are right next to the steam room. I walk back and see a girl come in from the pool entrance. I stop at the glass door to the showers and just stare at her in shock. She sees me and the half dozen naked men behind me. Talk about your deer-in-headlights look. She turned bright red and almost ran out of the locker room. I was the only one who saw her. I got a good laugh out of it. It's a good thing I managed to get the towel around me this time. Reason #4235 to lose weight: "Being able to wear the towel at the gym."
I guess I am not one to talk. The same thing has happened to me before. I went to a hot spring "Nat Soo Pah" with my real good friend Shane and his family and Nate Dogg. We had a good time, and there was a slide that was fun.
I decided to take another turn down the slide while Nate and Shane got changed. I wore my suit to the hot spring, so I didn't change when we got there. I went into the changing room and started to change after I finished the slide. It was a long row of changing stations with curtains. I remember thinking, this is really nice that they have curtains, because the guys' changing rooms normally do not have that. As I was changing, I started hearing female voices. That is funny, I thought, they are in the guys' changing room. I then started hearing more female voices. That is when I realized I was in the girls' changing room.
I changed so fast I think The Flash would have been impressed. I then peaked my head around the curtain to make sure the coast was clear and ran out of the changing room. As I turned the corner, Nate Dogg was coming out of the guys' changing room. He looked at me and then up at the sign of were I was. "SHUT UP AND COME HERE!" I said. Oh man, they got a good laugh out of that. Talk about embarrassing.
So for the girl who walked into our locker room today, I feel for ya.
