I am about 15 pounds over what the recommended weight for my height is, but I am "big boned" and I really do not look over-weight. I have a treadmill now and hope to start to get down to that weight.

My doctor has not complained about my current weight but I guess I need to do it anyway.

I always thought I was big boned too, until I learned that a bulging belly is not a bone! Whoa!

Hey Slim, I ran into Pam Lougee at the vegetable section at the market the other day... we were both buying kale and spinach. Smile

She said to tell you "hey."


Yeah, my new slogan is "don't live to eat, eat to live".

Hope to see you in Mesa next weekend - I'm planning to stop by the show on Saturday as I'll be in town on family business... I haven't seen you in person in a very, very long time!

People should lighten up on overweight steel players, especially since they recently introduced a "Fat Barbie". Very Happy

Used to keep my weight down working construction outside in the 100+ degree heat here in Okla. and down in Texas every summer. Now retired, I weigh in at 220 to 225 and I'm 6' tall. For B'Fast today, I had 3 Krispy Kreme donuts, coffee, and milk. For supper, I had 4 Jimmy Dean sausage patties cooked over a hickory fire, and eaten on Wheatberry Bread, with a big glass of cold milk. My wife was home to cook yesterday, so it was broccoli, green beans, potatoes, and meatloaf. It was very good, but hickory smoked sausage on the grill is tremendous. Another problem I have is Christmas time. We have these Braum's Dairy Stores here in Oklahoma that have the Best Egg Nog in the world, sold every year between Nov. 1st., and Jan. 1st., and my weight gain is the worst during those 2mos. Usually, I'll put away 1or 2 half gals. of that stuff a week. Mike, my back was broken in a truck crash in May of '05, and had to be surgically repaired with bars and screws. I went back to work for a while, just couldn't go like I could before, so I quit after a few years, and now all I do is pick, set around, cut fire wood, work on my Jeep, play steel and guitar on most weekends, or piddle around in my shop. My weight stays about the same except for Egg Nog season.

I am a short little guy at 5'4" and my belly is bigger than its ever been.. about 155lbs-I did the south beach diet for a few months 6 or 7 years ago and lost 10 lbs in a month. It was painful for the first few days but then not bad, and because of the diet I was never tired or sluggish. Need to do it again (that being said I had Indian buffet for lunch today) Embarassed

Better check your pulse, Bill; sounds to me like you might have died and gone to heaven... Wink

136/77 and 46 beats per min. at rest. When I had my truck crash in '05, while in the hospital the nurses kept asking my wife if I was an athlete because of my low heart rate. She told them no, "he just works really hard." And that crash was so bad, I almost went to Heaven. I had a fence put in at my home last year by two firemen that had ironically worked my wreck and remembered it because of the severity of the damage to my pickup, and thinking as they drove up on the scene that nobody could live thru that. Being upside down, head pinned to the ground, broken back, arm, ribs, and knee, those firemen jacked that truck up, pulled me out by my shirt collar, put me in a helicopter, and I'm glad I didn't leave for Heaven that night. Cause you're right Jim, the life I live is Heaven to me, until the real one shows up.

I had a similar spinal problem, my discs slipped out and I had my neck fused. In going from 90mph to 0.5mph, "nobody" told me I should cut my caloric intake by 2/3 or so... I started getting bad the 3rd year, went from 220 to 265. I'm down to 210 now, I can get it lower but it gets... almost ridiculous. One grilled cheese sandwich, 3 grapes and a cracker and you've had your calories for the day? Yikes. Charles Darwin wants me to be fat, mean and greedy, it's not my fault. Mad
