  1. Yeah, the fitness tracker has helped. I'm using an Apple watch, and it's been great. Though my woman, who also has an Apple watch, prefers her Fitbit for fitness. So, she wears both. While I'm not counting calories, I am being very good about what I eat and drink. I pretty much only drink water, and I mostly eat salads along with some lean protein. I guess I am making some progress., Today's weigh-in was 230.2, so I've lost 7 or so pounds in the last 2-3 weeks. I wasn't weighing myself before then, as I didn't want to see what the scale would have to say. My scale also has a body fat reader, though I don't know how much to trust that? I'm guessing I have about 25 or so lbs to lose, at this point... something like that?
  2. I eat the whites, and I give the yolks back to my hens, so they can make more whites. Unless I'm doing a hollandaise sauce... LOL
  3. Funny, I was gunna' make a post almost exactly like yours, so I'll just piggy-backs instead. I'm: - 5yrs younger - Have 1 less kid (4) - Am 2" shorter - Weighed in at 237 (2 weeks into my weight loss program) But otherwise, pretty much the same deal. Though I'm only 5'10", I'm pretty stout. Even when I did have a 6-pack, along with lots of other muscle, I could never get below 210... and that's when I was "big" in a good way. Building muscle has never been a problem for me, I can gain a pound or tow of it just driving by a gym. And I've always had a good metabolism too. I've pretty much spent my life eating however much of anything I want, as well as being joe 6-pack (of beer). Yeah, I'd sometimes get a dash of flab, but my solution to that issue was always the same thing - big-assed salad diet, for a month. I'd spend a month just eating on huge salad a day, in lieu of lunch and pre-dinner snacks, and I'd lose 10 or so lbs... in a couple weeks, without fail. This system has served me well for 15-20yrs, leaving me with a relatively flat stomach and in decent shape. Then, the 40's hit. Early 40s were OK, but the last couple years have been hard. I actually didn't do the big-assed salad diet for the last two years, and it shows. I saw a couple pics of myself, when I wasn't standing in-front of the mirror unconsciously sucking in my gut. And I was shocked... I'm friggin' fat!!!! Yep, I've been in denial. Anyone else in that boat? Funny, but it just got name like a brick, after years of denial. And then I tried to fit into my suits, ones that I bought 4 or so years ago. No way, no how, not happening. So, around Christmas, I started a weight loss program. This time, it was beyond just eating a big salad. I've been doing 30-60mins of exorcise very day (including lots of aerobic). I've even had quite a few days with 2-3 hours of serious exorcise, including today. And I cut out booze/beer/wine, all of it. Sticker, a Margarita is ~600 calories, and the beers I like are probably 250+. While I haven't been counting calories, I've dramatically reduced my intake. I'v pretty much been eating plants & twigs and such, for the last month and a half. Still, after all of this effort (more than I've ever made in my life), I'm barely making a dent. yes, the muscle is packing on (as it usually does), but the fat is still clinging. I tried on one of my suits, yesterday, and I the pants-button pretty much burst supersonic on me... LOL Anyhow, I'll stick with the program. I'll pretty much live with one foot in the program. That celebrated metabolism that all my friends used to marvel at, jealously, it'd dead. And yeah, I'm fat. But I'm working on that.
  4. Not on the roadshow website... March?
  5. I used to work with a guy who was a local vegan. He wouldn't even eat stuff that was grown form more than 50 miles form where he lived. This was, I believe, primarily driven by his wife. Every time we were on the road, he'd tie one on and insist on getting a full rack of ribs. He said always felt like poop the next day, but you just had to see the joy in his face when he devoured this baby backs!
  6. Saw him making crawfish etoufee, in person, once. He started by removing the fat from the tails and sautéing it in butter. Dang, crawfish butter!!!! That certainly upped the game in my own étouffée! The man was a culinary giant. Sorry to see him go...
  7. Ha! Lord knows I've witnessed this phenomenon, quite a few times, while traveling for work. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/vegetarians-eat-meat-drunk-survey_56167f34e4b0e66ad4c69f50 Surprising Number Of Drunk Vegetarians Secretly Eat Meat They relapse and go on the lamb. Vegetarians are going to have a cow over this. Oh, wait, they already are. A new survey says more than a third of vegetarians eat meat when they've had too much to drink. What's more, they're sneaky about it, with 69 percent saying they don't fess up. The study of 1,789 British vegetarians by the deal-offering service VoucherCodesPro revealed a few other morsels worth fleshing out: More than a third also revealed they go beast mode every time on a drunk night out. Kebab was the most popular relapse of choice (remember, this is the UK), followed by burgers, bacon, fried chicken and sausages, according to the Telegraph. SMABS SPUTZER/FLICKR "I know a few 'vegetarians' who sometimes crave meat, but it seems that a few are giving into their cravings when drunk," Voucher Codes Pro founder George Charles said in outlets. "I think it's important for friends of these 'vegetarians' to support them when drunk and urge them not to eat meat as I'm sure they regret it the next day." Acccording to a study by the Humane Research Council, many American vegetarians are bad to the bone as well: around 84 percent stray from a strict vegetarian diet. Those who would like to adhere to a strict vegetarian diet should adopt it gradually, nutritionist Lisa Young told the New York Daily News. “If you start by eating smaller portions of pork or chicken, then cutting out all meat and dairy for a month, you can get a better feel for it,” she said.
  8. Well, the fact of the matter is that this is a bit of a rebuilding years for the Saints, and I'm not expecting much. Given that Brees is struggling with injury, we have so many rookies on our squad, and the NFC South is no slouch, I don't see us going far this year. But that's a position I'm accustomed to in my 40+ years rooting for the Saints. I've lived in places like SFO and DC, where the bandwagon doesn't even get fired up, until their team is batting .800 or so - that's not how we roll. When you root for a team that occasionally gets 3-4 wins per season, you root for individual games, or even plays, regardless of where they'll sit in the division of conference. You work with what you got. And you celebrate loudly, in the wake of every spec of sucess! Give the history of this franchise, there 'aint no bandwagon on Bourbon St. Now, I don't know how long Brees has, but he'll always be a Saint, in my eyes. Fact is, players get injured and older, and changes eventually get made. Most of the game we saw traces of that, with Brees seemingly limited to throwing 15 or so yards, due to his injury. Heck, most of us expected he'd have to sit another one out. But looking at the last minute and a half of regular play, besides the missed FG, that was the Drew Brees Squad we've come to know and love - Fast, flawless, fearless, brilliant, and deadly! Having yet another taste of that was sweet. So forgive us if we gloat a bit, because we have that nagging feeling in our guts that there won't be many more moments like that for us. Laissez bon temps rouler, while we got 'em!
  9. Nice! I may have to flip mine, as the other side tends to stick. I think I've melted my grates a bit...
