well, here is a transcript of the e-mail i sent nason last week.

My dearest Nason and Emmy,

We all knew it was a bold undertaking when I first proposed it to the family that fateful night at dinner. A six pack would secure my position as ring boy at your glorious wedding. I regret to inform you that at my current standing it seems as though I will be unable to acquire a six pack by May 28th. I’m actually not even close. I tell you this not because I have given up, but only because I feel it is my duty to inform you so that you have ample time to find a well qualified ring boy to replace me. We both know that ring boy is a sacred position and shouldn’t be rashly chosen.
                   
I’m sorry for any pain this may cause the both of you. Obviously my stand in will be no where near my caliber, but then again you don’t want a chubby 19 year old with a fanny pack on walking down the aisle. I want you to know that I will continue to work hard in hopes of defying science, physics, and perhaps even God by acquiring a six pack by the day of your wedding. If not, I hope I’m still invited. I love you both very much.

Your (still pretty fat) Cousin,

Ashkon Nosrat

i apologize to all of you. i hope we can still be friends.

hey so i bought new running shoes. asics are way mainstream. everyone knows that brooks is where it’s at. so i’m on team brooks now. no big deal.
triathlon class was pretty tough tonight. oh man i’m SO bad at swimming. and it’s not very encouraging that the 45 year old chinese lady who swims in my lane consistently beats me. but not for long. i’m coming for you fang-li.

the wedding is in 3 months exactly. doctors and scientists may look at me and say, “bro, it’s physically impossible for you to have a six pack in 3 months time.” and you know what i would say to them? nothing, cause i would be way too busy doing sit ups! BOO YA!

HEY! so tonight triathlon class was pretty intense. ran 4 miles in intervals (avg 2:15 a lap) and swam 700 meters (too tired to look at time). gah swimming is tough, but it’s getting easier… actually not even a little bit. BUT IT WILL! long distance running will also get easier as my great friend miguel vega bought me a fuel belt! hwat!

so i told you guys i would be under 190 by the end of february. well im at 195 so i’m gonna have to do some serious cutting this next week to not let you guys down!

hey! i joined a triathlon class! hwat! i know! not only will it help me get in shape but it’s coached by a real life 2-time olympian. Julie Ertel Swail. she’s a badass. i’ll be doing triathlons with ryan snuggs in no time!
tonight we did a 2 mile trial. I didn’t do as well as i hoped but i’ll keep you guys posted on my progress.
2 mile time: 20:14  Avg Lap: 2:32
USA!

but you should try YOGA!!!! there is a really bomb class at 24 in industry/walnut on friday mornings at 930. it's hell- i never expected to sweat so much and i'm actually sore the next day, but it's awesome! a lot of guys in their 20s take it too so it's not just a room full of middle aged asian women.

hahah i will fail no more! yoga is pretty intense though so i will check it out. unfortunately i would prefer a room full of middle aged asian women. mmm.

well friends i apologize. it&#8217;s been almost two months since i&#8217;ve updated and to be honest, i haven&#8217;t lost anymore weight in that time. i know you are disappoint. BUT i recently had a dream where i was at the wedding and nobody talked to me. my whole family kept giving me dirty looks and the little boy who replaced me for ring boy spit in my face. it was terrible! i refuse to let this nightmare come true.
it was a tough goal before, but now it is even tougher. i&#8217;m currently at 199 pounds. i will be under 190 by the end february. and i&#8217;ll keep you guys regularly updated. if you&#8217;re still with me i appreciate it and i won&#8217;t let you down!
