A Tough Start To The Week

December 12, 2007

I’m really going to have to kick it in gear now that I am back from Chicago.  The last few days have not been terrible, but they haven’t been great either - something I have been saying too much lately. It started on Sunday when my son and I went to McDonald’s for breakfast prior [...]

London Observations

November 28, 2007

I lived in South Africa for a year when I was ten.  On the way home we first stopped in Australia for a month and I’ll never forget the feeling I got seeing those big American cars driving around Melbourne after a year of not seeing them in South Africa. I felt a little of [...]


Adieu Paris

November 27, 2007

I leave Paris for London this afternoon. I leave Paris happy not only for some great memories of a fun vacation with my wife but also happy for some validation that I am indeed a changed man. I put in over 9 miles over 3 days of running here, something I simply could not have [...]


I’m Eating A Lot Of Bread

November 26, 2007

We spent most of the day yesterday exploring the Hotel Invalides which includes Napoleon’s Tomb and an incredible Museum featuring Arms and Armor as well as World War I and II history.  It was very moving seeing old movies of Charles de Gaulle being welcomed as he strolled up the Champs-Élysées, talking the same walk that [...]

Diet starting weight: 295 Week starting weight: 269 Today’s weight:? Week weight loss: ? lbs Total weight lost: 26 lbs Can’t do a traditional update because I don’t have my trusted scale with me in Paris (or any scale, for that matter). But I must say I do feel thinner. My goal is to come [...]


Paris Is Expensive And Other Brilliant Observations

November 24, 2007

Paris only made #13 on the list of the World’s Most Expensive Cities (with London at #2, great - I’ll be there a couple of days this week), but with the declining dollar everything is 50% more expensive, which is really brutal.  Ordinarily we’d do a lot of Christmas shopping on a trip like this but [...]

Diet starting weight: 295 Week starting weight: 269 Today’s weight: 269 Week weight loss: 0 lbs Total weight lost: 26 lbs It’s been another of those weeks where I have to force myself to look at the bright side.  I’m not happy that I didn’t lose any weight, but I am still in the 260s despite a [...]


I Should Always Eat With Someone

November 15, 2007

I noticed an interesting thing over the last two and a half days that I was in Chicago. When I eat alone I eat everything on my plate.  When I am eating with a large group I eat everything on my plate.  But when I am eating with just one other person, I don’t eat [...]
