Chubbygut details one man’s weight loss efforts.

Over the last ten weeks, I’ve lost (on average) 2 pounds per week. And no workouts. Just a half-hour brisk walk every day, and watching what I eat. My appetite has fallen considerably, and I didn’t have to punish myself for it.

Glad to see men and women have finally reached parity when it comes to this sort of thing.

Call me crazy, but I don’t see much of a difference in his “progress” pictures.

BrianAug 06, 2003 at 12:36AM

His shorts seem to rise as time progresses.

SandyAug 06, 2003 at 9:07AM

Onward and upward the shorts!

I saw that he was ill, but I agree. Where’s the progress?

I guess we all have our own interpretation of ‘chubby’.

Maybe he’s getting excited by his “progress” Brian.

Maybe if he turned sideways we’d see a difference? Meanwhile, with those veins in his arms it doesn’t look like he’s sporting much body fat in general. Maybe we’re supposed to be looking for ab definition.

Cool interface though. I don’t know what it means when it says it’s an “introverted project,” but the blog I found after following the links is cool too. http://www.introversion.com/interface.html

I don’t think this is a weight loss site (as the man doesn’t seem to need to lose weight) but a getting-in-shape site. Which makes it odd that he doesn’t present it as such, and instead chooses a name like “chubbygut”.

here’s chubbygut’s evil twin:

the site might temporarily be down due to lots of hits from dave barry’s blog, but keep trying. it’s worth it for you masochistic types.

Good job MacDara. No workouts??? What do you call a 1/2 hour walk?
