Now she's gone?



I have a feeling we haven't heard the last from her, but would like to see a challenge with somebody new.

Excellent idea! I'd follow it.

Wow Jane, you're all over the internet! I just figured out that your handle is poker player. I was probably the last to know. Duh.


All over the internet? Dear God the one person in Vegas with my name is NOT me; she's apparently some porn queen and not me. I swear. I am, however the pkrplr4116 who is a poker player and who IS all over in poker forums, but I haven't been very active in them since Black Friday, to be honest. I'd love to remove that other person's horrid sex stuff from online, but since its not me, I can't make her do it. What a drag that is. Anyway, I'm happy to keep this thread going or have a new one. I'll let the Wizard decide.

Mike, I think, is the name of the Wizard? Thank you for much for allowing me continue with the weight loss thing. Someone today reminded me this is a gambling forum, so, since my 'thing' is donating to charities, if I don't lose the 25 pounds within a certain time, say 6 months, I'll make a cash donation to Three Square. In this way, no one benefits personally and I always donate food to them, anyway. I enjoy the shopping for the bargains in food and it would be a sacrifice to just hand over the money. But I'm willing to do that if in 6 months time I haven't lost 25 pounds. Granted no one has anything riding on it, but in order to make it a gambling thread, I'm surely willing to do this.

I went to my very first Overeaters Anonymous meeting this afternoon. My first tip to anyone reading this. Interstate 15 between Russell and Flamingo is bumper to bumper at 3:30 on a Sunday afternoon. The line to get off at Flamingo was HORRIBLE. I gave up on going that way and took Spring Mountain west. Great traffic avoidance. I donít know why the casinos think the time just before Xmas is slow; everyone was heading toward the Strip.
How was the meeting? Small-six people and one was just there for her friend. I learned there is a big difference between AA or NA and OA. I was surprised. I learned new words today
1. Alcoholic food Yup this word describes food that we eat that makes us want to eat more. Bingo! (I know, gambling, right) I have a lot of alcoholic foods. Anything/everything that comes out of a bakery. And sugar, like in candy, esp chocolate for the serotonin lift, I know all about that. Corn on the cob (I donít know why about this one).
2. Triggers: emotional and otherwise. The gal merely touched on this, so more when get the full concept. I suspect its not just emotional. Iím guessing people, places and things, such as events, parties, sports games, BBQs, etc. but I donít know.

I got the beginnersí packet today and will read it tonight. In a PM I told a WoV member I am planning on going swimming tomorrow. Now that I have told the forum, I think Iím committed to going. This is the one reason I did this publically. Thanks, all for your help. Iíll keep you posted. Going to another OA meeting off
Charleston tomorrow night.

That is a very reasonable goal. 4 pounds a month in real weight loss is doable, and safe.

What I meant was that pkrplr4116 shows up on several sites and numerous pages. I don't know anything about that other business and I certainly don't know your name. You might want to keep it that way. You also may not want to announce your whereabouts in advance. You can't be too cautious these days.

You must have some good poker stories that I'm sure many here would enjoy if you care to share.

I'll put up $100 to Three Square if you make it. Just to make it official, I'd like to weigh you in and hopefully take a picture to mark the starting point. Finally, I'd like to suggest we start a new thread for this. If I split off the existing posts from this thread, do you have a request what I title the new thread?

ABSOLUTELY! Can we name it after Christmas? Mike Muldoon isn't in at Three Square right now and I'd like to get them involved. Can we leave it here, for now? I'm up for an official weight in. I forgot in the 3rd attempt to send you a PM to ask you what part of town you live in. I'm southest. Any chance you live near here? We can meet anywhere. I'll write another PM in Word and save it, to get some specifics.

Wizard---- is there a challenge going on between you and HB? She would not do the weigh in and picture so you know I am not involved. Are you?

I went to LVAC on Eastern and did 6 laps in the pool. Can't say it was awe inspiring, but I always honor my word. I will 3x/week, baring any illness or trips out of town. I go to Laughlin twice every month. the VP there is GREAT!
