Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 220-Pounds.

Yes, that is true... Last night I going to work and was passing by this new Buffet restaurant. It was called the Crazy Buffet. I went in and saw it was oriental cuisine. So I decided to eat there.
Oh, I ate, and ate... The only reason I stopped eating was I had to get to work at 6 PM.

Then did you want to know what I did this morning? I went to breakfast with my brother, and had three large pancakes, along with three sausage links. Tonight I am having a large burrito for dinner...
So there you have it...

So there you have it... I've thrown all my cares to the wind....

Hello Weight Losing Fans....

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 219-Pounds. Oh Argh...!

Last night I took a large group of college students to Kennilworth, IL... They were at the home of one of the students, and were a very wealthy couple who are the owners.

They had dinner catered for all the kiddies, in their lovely home. I was invited in. This was at around 7 PM.... So it was late ... I ate about 4 pieces of chicken along with pasta, and some desert. So that's the food that is just sitting around waiting to go.

Enjoying A Warm Fall Day On The Bike...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 214.6-Pounds....
Or was it that I was 214.8-Pounds... Yeah, it was another day my scale couldn't make up its mind.
The good news is that I am back under 215-Pounds today.

Yeah, I guess Dinah Soar must have been right when she stated in a comment I was retaining water because of the sodium content in all the left over Chinese Cuisine that I was consuming for days....

Today I had the day off, so I jumped onto the old ten speed bike to head off to the library to post this.

I am perspiring as usual, along with huffing and puffing some. It's fun though. I enjoy every bump and crack in the road. I also enjoy dodging impatient drivers who even though I have a bright green shirt on seem not to notice me.

The day is very bright and comfortable for a fall day.

I love the days like this. I also like rainy days in the fall, but then I wouldn't even try to ride on a day like that.

It's a day to say, "Thank You God...!"

That's the way it is... I'm David Dane

Hmmm, Water Retention?

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 216.8-Pounds.
Or was it 217-Pounds?

It's another day of which my Scale couldn't figure out what my weight was supposed to be. ..

I stood square on the scale, and got two different numbers when I clicked to start the readings....

Oh well, maybe I have flexi-weight....

Dinah Sore commented yesterday that my excessive weight is because of high water retention due to the fact the last four days I have been eating the leftovers of Chinese food given to me by one of my customers in two very large dogie bags...

I hope that's true. Yesterday I ate about three cups of rice with vegetables mixed in. Before I went to sleep I ate some yogurt cups, and a couple cups of whole milk. I was so hungry before beddy-bye-time.

So there you have it.

Yep, that's up above the 215-Pounds that I have been hovering around, but it's below yesterdays 220.2-Pounds.

Honestly, I don't get it... I have been eating Chinese Food that is loaded with some meat, and a lot of vegetables. Yet, here I am....

Knee Problems? Maybe You Should Get An ACE Supporter

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 216.8-Pounds.

I actually don't think that is so bad. Yesterday I was out of town in Sandwich, Illinois and had a gyro sandwich, and French Fries. Then I drank a half can of Dr. Pepper.

So for me to step on the scale and see that, I am thinking not so bad....


I wrote a couple days ago that I have had some problems with my feet, and my knee.
I went to the local Walgreen's and purchased an ACE knee supporter. It cost me almost $20.00...
So far it's been worth it. I wore it part of the day when I purchased it. Yesterday I wore it all day at work. I take it off when I go to bed.

The knee support seems to be helping tremendously. At first it was hard to get used to wearing. Then I got to the point I don't even think about it anymore.

What it does is it tightly supports my lower thigh, and upper calf, with a semi-ridged cup around the knee joint. It helps the knee to stop popping every time I step.

I am now considering getting one for the right knee too....

Walking long distances has been much easier with the knee joint being supported.

That's the way it is... I'm David Dane.

Riding The Bike For Fun... Not Fitness...

Hello Weight Losing Fans....

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 216.6-Pounds.

Yep that is up. I expected that was going to happen. I ate late last night past 9:00 PM because someone gave me dogie bags of Chinese Food, and I was so, so hungry.

So that extra poundage is just what's sitting in my tummy, and colon.

Today I had the day off, and decided to ride my bike some. I took the bike to get a hair cut. Then I took the bike to the public library to get online.

Ya know, that bike is a pain in my arse... literally. The tires are so thin. The bike is light and easy to pick up physically. Because of that every bump in the road becomes a new experience in stinging pain on my fanny, and hands.

I really don't know why anyone would want a racing bike. I took the bike to the shop and asked if the front rim could be tuned. The guy said no it's bent.
I asked what happened? He told me someone probably hit the curb or something. Well, hell I didn't know this thing was so delicate. I know I didn't bend the rim. I hardly rode it when someone gave it to me last year.  I am so glad I didn't pay for it.  As I said, it was given to me.

Honestly though... I may give up riding this thing. It's to hard on the body.  I can get up to speed pretty quick with it, only in town, I have to stop every block. You know obey the traffic laws, etc....

Every crack and bump becomes a new experience in pain.

I have been having fun riding it though. I have been huffing and puffing on it and felt the perspiration when I got off and went to the library.

I am not riding it for fitness, as much as I am riding just for the fun... I am enduring the pain.

Maybe it's just I've gotten so wimpy in my aging years... Yeah, I am now a soft wimpy old man...

Perhaps I'll get some physical benefit out of riding it... Maybe....?

Oh well that's just the way it is, I guess.....

To Late To Be Eating...!

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 216.2-Pounds.

Excuse me for this late post. I went to work this morning so, so early, and then had no access to an online computer. I just put in 16 hours of work and I am heading home.

I don't expect my weight tomorrow to be any better because I didn't eat anything since 5 AM this morning except some granola bars.

My customer handed me some doggie bags of chinese food which I have been snacking on before bringing the bus back to the barn for the night. I have been eating barbeque ribs, and big chunks of stir fried vegetables. It's already past 9:00 PM. I am so hungry though.

My weight today was higher too because last night I was hungry and decided to pound down a couple glasses of milk and some yogurt. I am sure that's why I was over 216-Pounds today.

Like I said tomorrow I don't expect any improvement because it is so late.

That's the way it is, I'm David Dane

Oh The Autumn, And The Sale Of Apple Cider...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 215-Pounds.

Okay, Initially it was 216-Pounds, then I used the potty, and stepped on the scale again. Poof, a Pound went down the drain.

So, it's going to 215-Pounds, and a pound of waste matter....

I had someone graciously comment about using a roller on the back. She stated she's been using tennis balls. Ya know I didn't think of that one. But, I was using a beer bottle for one annoying point in my left shoulder that has a pinched nerve that has wreaked havoc on my left arm, and my left side.

I have to find my tennis balls and use those too....

It's autumn here in Illinois. In the grocery stores there is usually raw apple juice for sale around this time of the year. Well, let me tell you something. If you have a problem with constipation, here is your cure. I got a gallon of the raw apple juice at the store the other day. I have been drinking down a couple glasses each day....

Wow, it goes to work on the inside colon like nothing I've used except prune juice. I mean anything that's natural and safe.

Hey, it's not going to hurt to drink some of that apple juice in the raw with the mother still floating around in it. It will help get stuff moving, and it is so delicious...

That's the way it is... I'm David Dane

A Simple Foam Roller For The Back....

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today  I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 215-Pounds.
That's the same as yesterday.

As you can tell by my posts I haven't been writing a lot about my weight losing experience. There really isn't very much to say.

I get up, eat a skimpy meal, go to work, eat, sleep, and then go to work.

My mantra has always been "Eat Less."

Today I decided to write about something that I have kept quiet for well over a year.
I have had serious pain in the bottoms of my feet when I get up in the morning. I have been tested for diabetes, and that isn't the apparent cause.

It all started last year when I decided to start walking in January to "trim up." Well, that did something to me and I sustained an injury to my knee. Something popped in my knee when I was walking on the indoor track. After that it was down hill...

I quit walking when my knee swelled up and I began limping every day.  I rested my knee and tried to let it heal. It seemed to get better.  About eight months later I went walking again. My knee popped again.

This began an ordeal of constant pain in my knee. That pain seemed to start a problem in my left heal. I began having problems in my legs because of the constant compression of the underside of my thighs while driving.  

This last year has been a constant, day-in-day out problem with pain in my knee, and feet.

About a month ago I drove some girls to the college to play volley ball. They came out of the event carrying these black rolls that are six inches in diameter, and twelve inches long.

Someone gave me one of these odd little foam rolls.

I started using it to roll on my back side on top of the floor. Instantly I could hear, and feel my bones popping and snapping in my back.

I have been working at this for almost a month just about every day. The results have been that my feet and knee hurt less. My knee has been healing up. Although I believe there is some serious degeneration in the tissue, the result being a trick knee. 

When I wake up in the morning the bottoms of my feet don't hurt nearly as much.

I started riding my bike a little bit. And that seems to help some a little bit too....

If you have problems with your back, you may want to buy one of these foam rollers for your back. It sure costs less than a doctors visit.

That's the way it is....I'm David Dane
