    When I retired I weighed 282 lbs I'm down to 230 now. Goal is 170 lbs. Yep I want to lose over 100 lbs!

    I dunno Gip, first response is a poster that calls himself HotDog37, which may be how many he ate to win a contest.

    I'm gaining weight...well, actually, I'm not sure if I'm gaining weight, but I'm definitely gaining inches in the wrong places.

    Yep, and to show the connection between the brain, and mental state, and food, I became something I never was, a comfort food junky. I think I have conditioned myself to think I need that to fill some need. I used to be a real salad guy, loved them, and now I turn to the wrong snacks and food for comfort.

    "Oh, maybe this cookie will make me feel better. (Three minutes later) damn me, why did I do that? Oh well, now that I've already taken the slippery slope snack trail with chips and cookies and pie, oh my, I'm glad I got the extra large bag of cookies". Once you're naughty, might as well go all the way.

    I've got to get a handle on this or that guy that keeps arguing with his doc about cigars n whiskey is going be a chubster and add something else to defend. At some point I may have to consider that I do not have a healthy lifestyle. I will have to put a phony photo of me up on the new dating site I found HOME.org. Horny, Old, Myopic, Easy. Even some of them might have standards. I might have to change mine. You know that sign at the theme parks "you have to be this tall to ride this ride"? I have two fence posts in the ground "you have to fit between these two posts to hang with me". Good thing I didn't cement them in and left some room for expansion.

    Is that a Zil 111?, it's hard to tell when 40% is out of frame.

    My very first car. Lavender with a white top and white rolled and pleated leather and a 3 speed converted stick on the floor, 283 with dual 4 barrels. I thought I was Robert Mitchum in "Thunder Road". My Dad thought I was a idiot and he was even dumber for agreeing to let me get that car. That was like walking into your 16 year old's room and he's sitting on a 55 gallon drum of gasoline and asking him if he'd like a match.

    Inside of two months, I was in the assigned risk pool for auto insurance and my Dad had gone to school with the Chief who suggested that was too much car for his son. He stopped short of saying any car with an engine would be too much car for that idiot. But the short time I had it, I was a badass. Then I got a Chevy Nova and was a sadass.

    I don't know what year Nova you had, by the early '70s were hard to kill. That slant six was a great engine.

    I have a physical malady that keeps me from dieting.


    I get hungry.

    It is official folks i'm becoming a country boy my bid for the House in Idabel Oklahoma was accepted population less than 7000 people. VS the crap in Dallas/Fort Worth somewhere over 9 million people. No more traffic jams and waiting in line for 20-30 minuets at the store or longer. Cool old house needs a lil work but it is worth it. One of those old houses with the wrap around porch but they made the porch into a kinda wrap around sun room never seen that done usually they are screened in. I like what they did will be out there more than i'm in the house most likely.
