Just to point out that this whole weight loss surgery thing isn’t the bed of roses it’s purported to be (as if that were really the case for me!), I’m craving an Entenmann’s cake right now. A whole one. Vanilla. The kind with the dark frosting that lifts off in a chocolaty peel of yummy… Read More I’m craving Entenmann’s
If McDonald’s is the Devil, as I’ve said before, then what’s Burger King? Scarier than Godzilla, if their latest creation is any indication. As if the leaking radiation from the damaged Fukashima Daiichi nuclear power plant isn’t enough to kill the poor Japanese, Burger King has just launched a massive, 1,160 calorie, 820 Yen ($9.81)… Read More Burger King’s Japanese Meat Monster – Godzilla on a Bun?
I’ve said it before. Food can be addictive, and obesity isn’t necessarily a sign of weak-mindedness. Finally, there’s some scientific proof.

So as of this morning I’m down to 201.8 pounds. Yes, I’m counting the decimals now. That’s a total weight loss of 124.2 pounds. Forgive my language, but HOLY SHIT!

My size 38 Levis are falling down. I’ve got my belt on the last buttonhole, cinched like a nerd, but they won’t stay up. I’m a long way from the 54 Levis hanging on the wall in my home office. Geez, they look like the Goodyear Blimp, floating there above my desk. Not a bad… Read More Size 38 and Falling Fast
I’m at McDonalds for the first time wearing my new, slimmer, 105 pounds lighter body. There are two orders of Chicken McNuggets on the table in front of me, but I’m not here to eat. I’m just sipping a lousy cup of coffee. The food is for my kids. Ari and I picked Annie up… Read More Haunted by the McDevil
