Victory over fair food!
Monday, July 23, 2012      6 comments

For the past several years (6 years to be exact) we've been attending regional and state fairs (2 years at the "Big E" up in MA and 4 here in DE at the Delaware State Fair) and of course there is nothing quite as satisfying as fair food! Not go... Read more
Passed one threshold...another very close!

Great weigh-in this morning -- 189.2 pounds! First time under 190 in what seems like forever! 34 years for sure! Another one is rapidly approaching: 187. When I hit that mark, it will be an even 100 pounds lost since I actively starte... Read more
RIP Jon Lord!

For those of you who followed the rock music scene in the 60's and 70's, you may have read on Monday 7/16 that Deep Purple co-founder Jon Lord (keyboards) passed away. Since I have been a long time DP fan, this one hurts just a bit more, but giv... Read more

In spite of some last minute nerves, I went ahead and went "bald" today! I think I was more nervous doing this then I was when I had WLS surgery last September! ... Read more
Another fun clothes shopping experience...
Sunday, July 08, 2012      6 comments

Clothes shopping used to be one of my least favorite things to do. Why? Well, prior to my WLS last September, I always had a hard time finding clothes at a "normal" store like Kohls that truly fit correctly, especially pants, where finding any... Read more
"Staycation" Day 5
Friday, July 06, 2012      0 comments

A really nice day so far: - Up at 6am (I know, that does not sound like a vacation!) to walk the dogs and go the Y to run. - Fed the dogs in the AM (my DW was working today, so she'll feed them this evening) - Ah, then the best pa... Read more
"Staycation" day 4
Thursday, July 05, 2012      2 comments

Simple: early am yoga, followed by an early morning walk with our puppies, breakfast, and 18 holes of golf! It was in the low 90's but there was a breeze so it was bearable!... Read more
"Staycation" Day 3
Wednesday, July 04, 2012      2 comments

So today's story starts at 12:30AM this morning when I was awaken by one of my dogs digging at her bed. Now wide awake, I made the mistake of looking through the onscreen TV guide, and found "Independence Day", one of the movies I will watch ov... Read more

Slept VERY well last evening! No storms! On tap for day 2 of my staycation: - Finish cleaning windows in my office. 2nd floor windows and the bottom section can only be cleaned from a ladder outside. - Power wash front of ho... Read more
"Staycation" Day 1
Monday, July 02, 2012      2 comments

Well, if accomplishing things is my goal for this staycation, I'm off to a good start: - Power washed the siding by the garage and my office, which was covered with bugs (there is a motion light there and the bugs like it!). Plus I found a... Read more
What a difference a year makes!

Had a great run today -- 4.5 miles in 49:07 -- and was sharing with one of my colleagues who is an avid runner, when it hit me just how much has changed in the last year! A year ago -- my DW and I were in Chicago celebrating a wedding of on... Read more
Chiropractic Adjustment
Tuesday, June 19, 2012      1 comments

It had been 6 weeks since my last adjustment, and for whatever reason, the last time I was in I forgot to make an appointment, so my back started telling me last week it was time for an adjustment, which I got this morning, and as always, felt b... Read more
Sleep Study
Friday, June 15, 2012      4 comments

Last evening (Thursday) I went in for a sleep study. Had one done 5 years ago and was diagnosed with sleep apnea. Since then I had been using a CPAP until a few months after my Lapband surgery last September when I inadvertantly left the mask ... Read more
My two minutes of fame (hopefully 13 more minutes to go!)
Thursday, June 14, 2012      6 comments

I volunteered at a local health expo back in March which was sponsored by the medical group that owns and operates the two hospitals in my area (plus a number of medical offices). Specifically, I manned the weight loss surgery booth, given that... Read more
The Big "70" (pounds lost!)
Saturday, June 09, 2012      2 comments

At my last appointment with my Lapband PA (05/21), my weight loss on their scale has surpassed 70 pounds, but that was from my very first visit a year ago. Not quite there on home scale, which I started tracking the week I had my surgery last S... Read more
