Big Fat Friday Free For All

Yes people, it has come to this again:

Weight at start of diet (1 Aug):  192.0
Weight today: 190.2

The twin evils of lack of exercise and excess carbohydrates conspire with a sizable work load to result in a larger, more slovenly, less active CW.  I must turn this corner.

What is on your mind?  Are you sick of swimming yet?  Had your fill of synchronized diving? 

Share, people.  Share.

Future behavior can best be predicted by past behavior. Therefore it's a good bet I will continue to get drunk and make a show of myself in public, CW will continue to wear preppy clothes and dream of the day he can afford a Bentley, and the Democrats will continue to spend our money like there's no tomorrow.

Did anybody really expect the Democrats to govern any differently than they have? Did anybody believe Barack Obama would govern as a moderate and fiscal conservative as he promised in '08? I'm sorry to say yes, they did. So many people, smart people, politically conservative people were taken in by this slick talking, sociopathic political grifter; I'm still amazed.

So where are those people now? Where is Colin Powell, Chuck Hagel and Does Powell still believe Obama is a "transformational figure"? Does he believe Obama has been "post racial"?

I want to hear from these folks. I want their assessment of Obama's performance and whether or not he has met their expectations. And I would like their opinion on the current race. I want to know why they thought as they did in '08, and if they still think that way. I want to know why they thought an inexperienced freshman Senator, a product of the most corrupt political machine in the country would make a good President. And finally, I want a God-damn apology.

Wahoo - good luck - I was 211.2 on Jan 1, 2011. 165.2 this AM. Wednesday was 3 consecutive months under 170. It CAN be done.

Don't try to go low-carb/ atkins/ paleo - DO IT. Truly, there is no try. A trickle of carbs will keep you hungry and snacking. But after a week, you will not have those hunger pangs.

Weight training and bursty high-intensity interval stuff is great to cut weight.

I feel like I've discovered a magic formula which has eluded me most of my life. Low carb. Weights. High intensity interval training. Great blood profile, tons of energy, and not frustrated - the failure cycle of being heavy, eating crap which makes you hungry, eating more, gaining weight - I broke it, with not much willpower but eliminating sugar and flour.

Your mileage may vary, but it's worth a try. Good luck!

I wish the synchronized divers would wear the more modest swimsuits the swimmers wear. Those teeny little things are kind of disturbing. And I'm totally digging the ping pong.

A day late but a comment anyway involving the Chif-fil-A controversy this week: does the liberal/gay community think that Ray Kroc, Colonel Sanders, Dave Thomas, or the founders of Hardees ( NC guys I believe) would agree with the whole idea of gay "marriage"?
