Jason Segel sheds poundage!

Astute fans of Jason Segel may have noticed that the actor seems to have slimmed down in his more recent public appearances. He confirmed that on ‘Late Show’ and even brought the pictures to prove it.

The photos served as a sort of intervention for Segel. He’d gotten up to about 245 pounds, and was enjoying “the best food and booze anywhere,” according to Segel, in New Orleans.

“Unfortunately my assistant had a key to my room in case I overslept,” Segel said. “She came in one day to wake me up and she took a bunch of pictures to show me what I had become.”

David Letterman then put up one of the pictures, which he said looked like a crime scene.

Segel was sprawled on his back, belly partially hanging out, covered in Taco Bell wrappers. Under any circumstances, this is a sobering picture of the aftermath of a bad night — or good, depending on what you’re striving for.

Jill Scott Loses it… 50lbs later!

In case you’ve been under a rock, everyone is taking control of their weight. First Jennifer Hudson transformed herself in to a super sexy Weight Watchers spokesperson and now Jill Scott. WOW! In my opinion, Jill has always had the most beautiful smile in the world but the weight loss may have catapulted her on to my Things To Do list… no seriously. Damn…

When asked how she did it Jill told Ebony Magazine, “Anything that makes me feel like I’m not working out. We go outside and throw footballs, go for walks”. I’m sure its deeper than that. Nutritionist, meal plans and all the technical things included! Anyhow 50 lbs lighter, her star is brighter. YOU LOOK GOOD GIRL!

The Mission: 2011

I’m On A Mission. It’s 12:44 AM, Sunday, March 6, 2011. I currently weight 195.8 according to my Homedics scale. A few months ago, I was 230 lbs, Obese! The last 3 yrs of my existence have been controlled by the computer. Basically everything I do is on my Mac, besides my day job ( as a cook in a home for Mentally Retarded people). So as you could imagine, that includes a whole lot of sitting, snacking and zero physical activity (besides typing!!!). I packed on those pounds without even realizing what I was doing to myself, my health and my happiness. Truthfully, anybody that knows me can tell you I was an angry guy the last 3 yrs. My love life was absent, my social life was twitter and my life was endanger. I was the perfect candidate for a couple dozen diseases including High Blood Pressure, Diabetes, Heart Failure… Its a scary thing to think about. The funny thing is I look in the mirror everyday, but couldn’t see the gain.

Not only was I FAT, I was smoking (weed ) heavily which made me edgy and short of breath. The combination was crazy. But a change came when I got back some pictures from a family bar-b-que which showcased me at my fattest physique ever. Now mind you, I’ve been heavy most of my life. Well I had 2 great summers when I was around 19 -20. I did a lot of running that year and got myself in shape long enough to meet a young lady whose lack of cooking skills pulled my into the world of Instant Scalloped Potato Au Gratin, Mac N Cheese and any other instant fail food she could whip us up! Before you know it, I was back fat and I had discovered my new found pass time, the Internet.

Anyway , back to the pics. Man I was so disgusted by what I saw that I went outside and ran. I didn’t get to far but mentally, I was setting myself up for the biggest turn around my life has ever seen. Fast forward to now. I currently maintain a membership at 2 gyms (Planet Fitness, which I use to train others & NYSC which is were I workout with my business partner Adonis Hill) and every morning, except for rest days, I am up at 5:00 AM readying myself for a workout.

Not only is my body changing, so is my attitude towards life. I love myself much more which translates to me showing love to others also. I messed up a few relationships in my past that I truly wish I could mend, but right now, its all about improving me. I have a goal to reach (174lbs which is the average for my age and height) and nothing is going to stop me from reaching that. Hopefully by summers end I will reach this goal, no fad diets or miracle pills. It’s 100% dedication and knowledge. I study this religiously. I call it FITISM. This is my life!
