The Big D diet. I'm losing half a pound a day. Losing half of everything else, too, but I digress...

HB, can you skate? If not, learn. It's wicked fun and a hell of a workout. Using the biggest muscles in your bod will help shed those pounds, and you'll create yourself quite the backside. Ass and legs, who doesn't like those? Outdoors, fresh air, watching the scenery go by, the rythmic click-clack...way better than a blasted eliptical staring at bland walls and ads for creatine.

Good luck!

Unless your 6', 250lbs for a woman is a fucking walking deathtrap.



What utter baloney. If you have a bad heart to
begin with, probably. If you don't, at 50 the
extra weight won't make that much difference.
They've done study after study and are finding
its far more about your genetics than anything
else. I have a sister in law who's skinny as a rail
at 50 and is the most sickly person I know. My brothers
best friend from HS dropped dead in his back
yard at 51 from a heart attack and there wasn't an extra
pound on him. I have a friend who's 76 and weighs
330 and trots up and down the stairs in his house. So don't
be pronouncing people DOA just because you
have an obvious ignorance of the facts.

Hey, good luck. I've been heavier than I've wanted
for some number of years.

It is certainly easier said than done to lose weight
and keep it off. I'll be happy if I can start with the
first one though !

Once upon a time, I guess when I had more time
on my hands, I did a lot more jogging and
bicycling. Ironic that I'm sitting here typing
on the net when I say I don't have time to
exercise.

...and whether the bet will include terms like an average of 10 lbs per month, or a minimmum of 10 lbs per month.

The bet is just simply for me to weigh 160.8 or less on October 17th of this year. If I'm 160.8 or less I win, if I'm more than that my opposers win.

The real challenge isn't to lose weight, but not to gain it back afterwards <sigh>

Very true. But let me tell you after my weigh in I don't want to hear a WORD from anyone about what I put in my mouth that day or after. If I'm busting my ass for over 9 months I don't give a care what anyone says about what I eat after that.

I hate to say so, but you had better be down to 200 lbs by 1 April. Those last 40 pounds are going to be very difficult.

According to my calculations I shouldn't weigh more than 214 by April 1st. I'm going to be in Vegas for a short visit mid-April and shouldn't weigh more than 209 by then.

HB, can you skate? Good luck!

I own a pair of roller blades that I haven't used in probably 10 years and I own a pair of hockey skates. I used to be a real hockey fanatic. Ha, actually, back in my Super Hot Blonde days I took a trip to Vegas all by myself. I had checked out of my hotel and went to play and have lunch at The Hard Rock Casino before I left. Since I was alone I ate at the counter and some guy came up to me and told me he was here for some hockey thing and did I want to come hang out at the pool with him and his buddies. I said sure and he gave me a wristband. Little did I know that these were pro-NHL players and they were there for a celebrity/pro-NHL hockey game! I was in utter bliss!! Cuba Gooding, Jr. was there and hanging out, Alan Thicke, I think I saw Joe Pesci but not sure, Chris Chelios was there, Reed Simpson, etc., etc., etc.. This black guy comes up to me and is all, "Hi, I'm A.C." I'm like, "Fucking duh! Anson Carter!!!" But I didn't say that out loud. I was in hockey heaven. Anyway we all ended up hanging out at Light at The Bellagio later that night and had tons of fun. Scott Melanby who was with the St. Louis Blues at the time was all flirting with me and wanted to take me downstairs to play blackjack and then back to his room. I said, "Aren't you married?" and he basically replied with, "Yeah, back home." I politely thanked him but told him no I wouldn't do that. I have a few pics from this event. I will post them once I scan them. Anyway, one of my best memories in my ENTIRE LIFE!!! God, I love Vegas!!

Oh, and thank you, Face, for the well wishes.
OFFICIALLY and justifiably reclaimed my title as SuperHotBlonde!

A great diet I saw over 20 years ago had this
guy who weighed 375 pounds lose it all by
staying strictly on the diet 6 days a week and
eating whatever he wanted on the 7th day.
And man would he eat. Cake and cookies and
ice cream and Big Mac's, you name it. He wrote
a book after he'd been doing it for 30 years
and he was very thin. It takes lots of discipline,
you have to live for that 7th day. He knew he
didn't have the willpower to give up what he
loved forever. He first lost 25 pounds, then
started the 7th day diet and he eventually lost
all the weight.

I agree Paco- I believe she can get to 200 or so, perhaps... but then it gets much harder.... excuses start cropping up... a birthday party.... a date..... a sore back.... a cold..... But I hope she proves me wrong... So no forum members willing to buy a share.....??? You guys don't think the 'no' is a good bet?

Of course, Bob, not all obese people will die early of complications of their disease.... But obesity is a HUGE risk factor for many preventable conditions... You mentioning ONE obese person who lived a long life, and ONE thin person who didn't, is , well, classic EvenBob....

I think she can do it, losing weight is not that
hard. Its keeping it off that takes a miracle.
I know dozens of people that lost a good deal
of weight and all of them put it back on. Most
people can stay motivated for 6 or 8 months,
anything longer than that is tough.

But he didn't say that, did he. He said you'll
drop dead at 50. The problem with obesity
is people DON'T drop dead at 50, they get
diabetes and a myriad of other things and
linger and linger, putting a huge strain on
the health care system. If obese people all
had fatal heart attacks at 50, who'd be
complaining. Social security would love it,
the health insurance companies would love it,
but thats not the case.

Good. We've seen how contentious friendly bets can get.

You're a responsible adult. What you eat is no one's business but your own.

If you want low fat recipes, look up the recipe thread. Just about all I cook is low fat and low cal.

Anyway, good luck. If you want to rant about your diet and exercise, please do. It helps.
