Mom and Dad had antecedents on both sides of that bloody conflict. Counties were split, towns were split, and families were split. It was never as simple as being the north versus the south.

The diet continues…

Well, I am eating all of the “right” food and I am getting plenty of exercise but I have only dropped a few pounds. All of this flab must be muscle that just looks like… fat.

Strawberry cheesecake is health food, right?

Keep at it - you will lose the pounds as long as you do not diet like me. I am down to one candy bar per night.

Heck, I put on 2 pounds just looking at the photos of your Easter feast ;) Man, I am envious.

Take care and thanks for stopping in,

I'm on a weird kind of diet. Helene, bless her heart, had one of those "talks" with our doctor back before Thanks Giving. She is walking every day and I go with her. She is also on a simi-fast. I can't manage that but I have cut down on a bunch of the junk I used to eat because I didn't want to eat it in front of her. I also cleaned out my stash of candy bars and other junk food.
She is down almost 70 pounds. I'm just barely behaving my self and I'm down 20.
I do know how you feel Zack. I get fat driving past the donut shop. My little brother is one of those jerks that eats all day long and loses weight chewing!

Good for her and for you! Those are impressive numbers. My wife became diabetic so she had to quit eating all the good stuff. Like you did to support your wife, I won't have any of the evil goodies in the house. My wife is now as thin as a bird but I'm still as fat as a penguin.

Take care,

Hey Zack,
You'll be suprised, just keep going little by little and you'll be feather light before you know it, trust me i'm on the same path myself, it's not easy but you'll get there.

James A. Zachary Jr. said...

Hey there John, thanks for the encouragement. You are right, I got fat a few ounces at a time over many years and should not expect instant deflation. I'll quit dreaming of cheesecake and ice cream ;)

Take care,
