Man, I am *so* looking forward to giving you the LOVE in person. I know this is an everyday-challenging endeavor, but I also know *you* enough to know you have it in you, in spades. So again -- big LOVE coming your way. In roughly 6 days or so.
Congrats, you not-heart-attack-candidate sum'bit.

It's good that you have given up on this notion of becoming a Brudda Iz impersonator. I mean, he died! Just work on the tunes and we'll love you for who you are... And we need you around for a long long time.

61 pounds gone now.
I couldn't believe it when I stepped on the scale after having been traveling for so long.

I actually had a few Navy Grogs and a few other drinks at Trader Vics London the other night.
Plus when I returned I went to Roy's and ate up... including dessert.
So it might have been more had I not indulged over the previous 4 days.

Also - I've swam in 3 different oceans in the past 60 days.
Being in Hawai'i was very physically invigorating. Lots of hiking and swimming.
It was nice to be able to do those things at a level far more strenuous than I could have at my "other" weight.
Also the travel included several days of lots of walking and carrying and sweating and long treks through airports.

Can't stop now. It's just getting interesting.
Threw away a lot of clothing recently.
Still haven't learned to surf and that sucks.

I'll hit here again when I get to 75 lost.
That's when the swimsuit modeling offers should start pouring in.

Wow, quittting cigs is tough.
I was able to just scale back and scale back until I just didn't smoke anymore.
The occasional bar-smoke once a month and maybe a few days where I smoke 10 cigarettes and then nothing again for 3 weeks.

Most can't do that.

It's got to be all or nothing.

I don't know anyone that has successfully gone from smoking a lot to nothing.
I think scaling back is the best from my observations.

Let me research it for a few days and you do the same.
We'll come up with some kind of a contest for sure and I'll kick your ass.

btw, I never got to see your friend, Mad Dog - Waikiki was a zoo that week - so I stayed on Kaimana beach. That one long break on Waikiki was always full of surfers. I may have killed someone there had I tried to surf it.

..."pig roast" indeed. I'll get you for that, smokey.

Aloha,
piggy

Sorry Pablus didn't mean to make you stray.

But inspirational blog. Inspired my wahine and I to make the New Years Resolution to loose our excess weight and get fit. So only another 19 days of excess.

Keep up the good work man.

Try the nicotene patch Ben (when you're ready). After 10 years at 1-2 packs a day, and several unsuccessful cold turkey attempts it worked for me. Cig free since 1994!

Congrats Pablus! When you've lost 75 lbs. I'll fly to Tampa and eat a 75 ounce steak at Bern's!

Pablus, your progress is inspirational.
You have amazing will power, which I wish could be bottled and shared with many more people.

Here's to a healthy Paul, free from the shackles of self inflicted whale jokes and a former size. Cheers!

Pablus, how ya' doing on this one? I'm one of the "silent ones" who was impressed and inspired by your candor and resolve regarding this (now very much "all-American") challenge. No, I'm not pressing for the latest statistics (for fear that someone will ask for mine!), but just a general shoutout as to how this struggle is going. And a salute to you for initiating the discussion.

P.S.: On subsequent thought, it occurs to me that, the whole topic being a personal matter, one might wish to leave it dormant. In which case, silence will be perceived as golden.

(edited to add P.S.)

Well, I was going to actually make some real progress before posting again, but in truth it's just that I haven't put any back on or taken any more off.

However, I've not only kept it off but really started a serious toss as exercising... *shudder*
I bought a Breezer City Bike and have started commuting to work at least 2 days a week and sometimes more.

The Breezer is great. It's got a pannier I bought with it that fits my laptop. So cool.

So I've dropped some inches even though I'm basically the same weight.

I'm glad I've gotten my stamina to a level it hasn't been in years because I'm in Paris right now and the city is a fat man's nightmare. You gotta walk everywhere. When you get a taxi, they make you push it halfway to your destination.

I doubt all the walking will do much for me here though because of the fois gras and vin.

Somehow, I blame virani.

Well, as a brief, unsolicited 2 cents, let me wonder out loud if successfully maintaining a significantly lower level for an extended period of time isn't in fact a kind of "progress" in itself.

Like the chart analysts on CNBC say about stocks, "it's consolidating recent gains, and after spending a while in this new trading range we expect the favorable trend to resume in due time."

Best wishes on this.

I like to beleive that good things happen to good people.

you are good people pablus...

Keep working toward your goal. Although a physical change is inevitably what you are after, the biggest goal should just be getting out and about and exercizing regularly regardless of the result.
