I saw the ads for the show. I wondered, why we as a culture, think Kirstie Alley (or Kim Kardashian, Paula Abdul, Simon Cowell, Dog the Bounty Hunter, etc.) are culturally relevent?

I hope Kirstie Alley can lose her weight, and get healthy, and I hope she can be an inspiration for many.

It could be. We'll see. But I seem to be "needing" less food daily. And to be honest, I think less about food.

I'm still "hovering" at 180 lbs. But, I'm starting to lose "size". The belt(s) were down a notch today, and the medium shirts are starting to fit better.

I know the book is not for everyone. I actually did not read the whole book as there was much gruesome stuff about the treatment of animals and the meat industry. I got the idea about it. Since my husband started eating vegetarian, I am giving it a trial and so far I feel really good. I did not sto...

Technically, yes. But I think "flexitarian" implies that one is eating more plant foods and fewer animal foods.
LOL, OK.

Gettin' Ripped...

Being a Spec. Ed. teacher, and having had all of my kids matriculate through at least one of the schools I have been at, my daughter got a Face Book message from one of her classmates from summer school who told her her "dad was ripped". I guess sometimes there is a payoff.

Failure today. Breakfast was good.

Lunch not so, had a doughnut and a Coke. (Why you ask? It was there...)

Dinner should be better, salt pork on white beans, salad, and club soda.

So, I will redeem myself tonight.

Excerise, have a SuperSlow sesssion planned. Then a sauna.

Idle Time

This may have come up. But my need to snack increases exponentially if I have idle time, sitting in front of the tube (but interestingly, not in front of the computer), or if I don't keep busy. I'm teaching summer school so the need to snack has decreased, but when I'm done and have taht 6 weeks off...

Isn't it a psychological thing? You reach into a bag of chips, or a bag of BK and eat. Put it on a plate, look at it, study it, and become repulsed.

Update 8/31/08

I'm down 8 pounds (to 185) from a month ago. Thursday I was able to jog (About 4.5 mph) on the treadmill for an hour. And yesterday, while playing golf with my wife, was able to wear a medium Polo without looking like Drew Carey in a singlet.

Twenty pounds to go.
