The Weight Update

Well I have lost five pounds since starting this latest diet. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, and and that will present a problem. There are other problems, which will make this diet hard to maintain. Things like measuring food. Also, I get hungry in the afternoon with no room for a snack. For now, I've been increasing my cardio, but 1200 calories adds up quickly. I may take a break over the holidays.

The Weight

Today I start my millionth attempt to lose weight and keep it off. Just like brain surgery, I'm wondering if it is really worth it to try again. Maybe I was meant to be fat. At any rate, my weight is the latest brick wall I shall run into at ramming speed.

But I've already failed at my first step toward this goal. I don't stop eating; close the kitchen, as it were. I get up at midnight and snack, when I should just starve overnight.

I found an application for the iPhone that lets me make a diary of what I eat all day, my weight and my workout too. I've set a goal of two pounds per week, 1200 calories a day. It's not easy. I was hungry late in the afternoon, and had no calories left for a snack, not even yogurt, so I exceeded my quota of calories by 200. Better luck tomorrow I guess.

I wrote in my last post about gays are stereotyped and treated differently. Well I think the same is true for us fat people. People snicker at us, maybe even pass us over for jobs because of our appearance, not knowing that obesity is a more complex problem than just eating too much ice cream. From hear on end, my smart phone will be my personal trainer.

That's so gay!

Is it me, or do the majority of people have problems with gay people? The military doesn't want gays openly serving, some churches think they can "cure" gay people, and/or think gay relationships are morally wrong, gay teens committing suicide, because of alleged bullying.

My message to gays and lesbians is: Come out, come out where ever you are. You don't deserve the tremendous burden of hiding your feelings. Come out and feel the freedom of Authenticity!

Verruca Salt

I'm changing my name to the famous Charlie and the Chocolate Factory character, after doing battle all summer long with a plantar wart the size of Ohio. It feels like a starfish on my heel, or like I'm stepping on sharp pebbles.

I've tried plaster adhesive bandages. I would put on on overnight, and take a layer of my wart off in the morning. I also saw a dermatologist who told me about a specialty pharmacist who makes Magic Wart Cream. I put some on Verruca, and it's supposed to make the wart blister. So far, it's not gone.

By the way, if you want to see something a YouTube search for plantar wart surgery. Enjoy!
