I am not sure what I am doing right, but I have lost another 10 pounds. I think it has something to do with diet and exercise? I'm not a nutritionist or physical trainer, so I can't say for sure. I have been using the same scales and weigh infre... Read more
My 83 year old tennis partner called himself an 'Old Goat'. As I was agreeing with him, he asked if I knew what Goat stood for. He said: "Greatest Of All Time". I'll admit, I had to agree.... Read more
When the pounds come off
It's always good when the pounds come off. I kind of used Atkins to kick start my weight loss. It works for me, but the digestive process was a little rough going. So somebody challenged me to a half marathon in October and I can't even run a mi... Read more

Two months ain't bad
I fell off the Sparkpeople edge again, but not for too long. Weight went up some, enough to push me back here, but not horribly so. When you yo-yo diet, do you gain weight when the yo-yo is moving up? Anyway, I hope everyone is sticking with it ... Read more

So, today while walking on the track at a small university in a small town in west Texas, this guy catches up to me. We walk and talk for an hour or so and he gives me his email. I Google his name and here a few of the things:
