Bear with my while I pace the floor awaiting the GW news site to be updated with more photos. I desperately want to see my giant there, and nearly a week after games day the irrational impatience is killing me. It's uncharacteristic of me, or at least I would like to think it is. It takes time to prepare photos for web display, and there were an awful lot of great models that got photographed.

Please enjoy the pretty flowers while we wait.

Off topic, my "get less fat" crusade has been going quite well. I've managed to stay at about 1000 calories a day and maintain daily brisk walks without a significant amount of hunger or regret. When I think about all the food I have decided not to eat in the past 11 days it gives me a startling realization of how many calories I was actually taking in per day. I wonder if there is a maximum caloric absorption limit, after which any potential calories you have ingested just pass through untouched. That theory is the only dubious rationale I can imagine to explain why I don't weigh 500 lbs. Family Camp is Aug. 11-19, and eating small portions when I have a buffet available three meals a day will be a challenge. Hopefully Stef can give me a little willpower nudge if needed.


  1. As an expert dieter, be warned; it's ineffective to do 1000-calorie-a-day diets for more than 4 days at a time, because then your metabolism goes into starvation mode, slows down, and hoards every single calorie you eat. It's more effective to trick your body by taking 4 days on, 3 days off - don't pig out on those three days, but increase your caloric intake enough that that your body doesn't go into preservation mode!

  2. Yeah Hon, don't expect too much from me. Remember, I was the one eating the 1/2 bag of gummie worms last night at about 10. Will power I have not!!! *GRIN*


I had to add anti-spam measures because, let's face it, almost nobody comments on blogs anymore unless they are spamming. Sorry.
