    Re: The Boring Thread

    Well i'M finished at -54 lbs (24.5 kg)

    In January I got on the scale in the morning and it said
    250 lbs (113.3 kg). (When I graduated from college 27 years ago, I weighed 185 lbs (83.9 kg).) I decided it was time to change and I went to the hospital here and signed up for the doctor supervised crash diet. It consisted of 4-170 calorie milk shakes and one restricted meal a day for a 1300 calorie a day diet. In 12 weeks I was down to 196lb (88.9 kg). I'm 6' ( 182.9 cm) tall.

    The hospital measured my fat and lean body mass and said I should weigh between 186 and 201 lbs. So, I'm done. The next task is to keep the weight off.

    Before, my knees and back were killing me. I had knee surgery in May (1 year ago) and it didn't really help. I had neck surgery 3 years ago to remove the 4th and 5th vertebra in my neck and replace them with a bone graft and a titanium plate.

    After the loss, my knees feel good. Still stiff on the right side but far less painful. Walking is fun again. Marginal improvement in my neck. Lower back feels much better.

    Growing old is a *****. I'm 48 years old. Everytime I get an X-Ray, the doctor makes a comment about my X-Rays looking like those of a 70+ year old.

    I'm attaching two actual pictures of myself before and after.

    Good times.

    A salesman told me that with a sundial I could know which time it is, not only during the day, but also at night when the light is coming from the moon. My problem is that the marks on the sundial are made for daylight usage. Stupid salesman!

    If you had done that here (Michigan, USA) on this weekend, you would have been buried in snow.

    Sigh.

    I wish we had snow here...
    At least the temperature is under 0 degrees now at least for most of the day. ( around midday I think it's still above 0 )
    Now if this keeps up, we'll have a nice cooling down of the soil and when the snow comes, it'll stay around for more than an hour. Oh and ofcourse, it will kill a bunch of the bug eggs that would have hatched in spring, so less bugs in the coming year.
    I wonder if that means I'll have less to do as programmer too.

    Sigh, snow again tonight.

    The region is running out of salt to put on the roads.

    it's better to be in snow than in a "heating oven",
    Cold ? --> Wear more clothes
    Hot ? --> Nude ?

    The answer to whatever is whatever.

    How many times have I seen by my own eyes and listened by my own ears about how people give an excuse for their wrongdoing ?
    Isn't it uncommon to hear my boyfriend excuse for his mistake to have slept overnight with a girl next door, is it ?
