Great Visualization of Obesity Data

January 22, 2012

I don’t see how you can view this short video illustrating the obesity epidemic in the U.S. and not want to change something. Yes, I recently reviewed a book called The Great Fat Fraud but really the point of that book was the importance of fitness, as opposed to the dangers of obesity. Yet, you [...]

Play Money

This is a guest post by Andrew Salmon. Money may make the world go round but it will also kill you if you’re not careful.

Welcome 2008

January 2, 2008

Well I officially weighed in on the first day of 2008 at 267 and a waist of 50″.  Looking at my pictures it looks like I actually gained weight in my belly, although that could be deceiving because it looks like I may be standing straighter.  And of course I could have lost weight in other [...]


My Goal Weight

December 4, 2007

In a comment here yesterday John asked, “So what is your ultimate goal weight?” The easy answer is 185, down from 295 and a total loss of 110 pounds.  At 267 I am a quarter of my way to that goal. But that’s my perspective from the start of the diet, I expect it might [...]

Midweek Review

October 17, 2007

As I suspected, this has been a tough week.  Went to my parents for a party Sunday night and did not do well on the eating front.  I had a 6:00am flight Monday morning and I did lift weights before that, so that was good.  But then after a half-day meeting we had dinner and [...]
