Half Dozen and Why I Hate Bacon

A week back on the wagon and I've lost six pounds to 274.  Not too bad.  Still, I know there's much more to be done.  Even though I've run and biked and spun (is that right?  spinned?  no.) gone to spin class.  Need to get back on the weights. 
I just saw a note from some buddies in Wisconsin.  They're setting up a weight loss contest for tomorrow through March 1.  Not sure of the details, but more likely than not, I'll be in.  Will keep you posted.

On an entirely different subject. . . I work with a guy that eats everything.  He's 50 years old, tall and lanky and just eats.  We go to lunch and he eats worse than the fat guy that I was.  One day he orders an appetizer of bacon wrapped tenderloins.  I ate one tenderloin, without the bacon.  He ate 11 bacon wrapped pieces and my piece of bacon. Then he ate a burger and fries.  We go to a Mexican place and he finishes with a sopapia desert -- extra caramel sauce, extra whipped cream.  Told me today he weighs less than he did in high school.  (I do too, but I work at it a helluva lot more than he does.)  I accept the fact that our bodies are different, yada, yada, yada, but I don't have to like it!

Thank you all for the positive vibes.  It's good to be back in bloggerville.

darling, we're both back on the wagon. The weight training really helps I just have a hard time getting into it as much. (I have a really good gym and trainer now.)

Here's to fitter healthier selves.

P.S. One day, your coworker is going to keep over. Just because you're thin doesn't mean you're healthy.

I laughed about the bacon dude. People like that make me want to fill their pockets with rocks.
Nice to have you back, Jeff.

A couple thoughts that crossed my mind: I wonder if your friend may eat light most of the time, then go crazy every once in a while when out. Also, maybe he exercises a lot?
But I know there are people out there who just have the genetic high metabolism.

Good job as always you inspire me.
