    Thank you, Scott. As you know, fitness is very near and dear to me. I love talking about the days when I was athletic. I have an old saying: “Sometimes, a ship does sail on yesterdays wind.” When I think about how fit and rambunctious I used to be, it fills my heart with pride and makes me want to tell others about it. “Have a seat,” I say. It usually takes a while for to tell about my days of glory, and it makes me uncomfortable when other people are standing.

    But, let’s not get caught up in the yore of yesteryear, friends. What are we doing today? Today I decided to eat only dark chocolate. No more milk chocolate in this temple, no sir. Plus it is easier for me not to give in to Mr. Pippen because I know dark chocolate is bad for his nervous system. More updates to follow.

    Here is how I have changed my eating. It is 5:00 PM and I have had a tangerine, a healthy salad of broccoli, spinach, pecans, and apples, and I have been drinking water laced with a tiny amount of blue Gatorade mix. Plus half a bar of Hershey’s dark chocolate. I am visiting a friend with a new baby this evening, and I am planning a light dinner of green beans and spaghetti casserole.

    Contrast that with what I would have typically consumed today, and you would see a vast improvement! Less calories; better calories. I am feeling good about my attempted lifestyle change! I actually drove through a Bojangles parking lot today and had an inner struggle which the healthy John won. Usually unhealthy John wins those struggles, so I am feeling very good right now! If I can keep this up, I believe I will see some very positive changes. 🙂

    Great Scott made a video last year, from the shoulders down. He looked pretty fit for an 80 year old. If that really was Scott and not an impostor or hoax.

    Alas, John.  You caught me in a lie.  I was fairly new here at the time I made those videos and so I wasn’t sure if I would be fully accepted because I was  one or two pounds over my usual healthy weight.  I got a slim friend to stand in for that video, and while he “lip-synced” the playing of the tune(s), I was at the other end of the room playing, and so it was me who your heard, not him.

    But just think John, you are not far off from looking like me!  Or should I say: I am not far off from looking like you!    🙂


    Way to go!!! …. Fatty!!

    Here I am at Mod Central happily doing my thing…

    John (BGD)John (BGD)

    Scott, thanks for covering your face. Hideous!

    OK progress report: Someone asked me today if I had lost some weight. Success!


    Scotty, I have taken off a couple more lbs. I know I can vary that much each day.
    I eat nothing between meals at all! I knew you would be thrilled at my progress.

    John (BGD)John (BGD)

    Rock, slow down, buddy. Eat some milky ways. You can’t be all looking like a marine while I’m still smelling like a heavyweight. I thought we were doing this together!


    Well I’m around 12lbs. lighter so far, You need to get on the ball. I hope to get back to about 165. 🙂

    John (BGD)John (BGD)

    Rock, I couldn’t imagine you at 165. That would be way too skinny!


    John, my wife cooked a big dinner yesterday and I ate and ate, or should I say gorged!
    The fat goes on way faster than it comes off!

    Where is Scott when I need him!!

    John (BGD)John (BGD)

    I’m still hanging steady at 215. Ten pounds is not enough! I have 25 to go to meet my target weight. As soon as I get over this cold I promise to hit the trails and drop some of this off.


    Scott, I had a big supper yesterday. My wife cooked a very good meal and I ate to much. I have even stopped the cheese puffs at dads. Today will be different, I am even going to get some exercise!

    John (BGD)John (BGD)

    Rock, this is going too far. Exercise? That does it. I am going to exercise tomorrow. I am not going to have you outdoing me.


    John, I got a real workout today. I drank a lot of water but I know that will leave me. I know I worked off yesterday’s dinner and more.


    We work pretty hard but don’t work out…too doggone tired from all the work.  I’ve lost it with my dieting efforts too…got too stressed out with everything, so I’m back at square one again! Getting nowhere!  Have to try harder, I guess!


    Hi Cricket, Funny the way you put that. Thats what I did yesterday was worked out,
    worked in the yard and helped the people next door seed their yard. Did a lot of sweating helping my dad work around his place. They say that kind of work doesn’t work for exercise. Tell my old body that, I can’t hardly move. My wife bought me a new recliner yesterday. We had to call in help to get it in the house after all that work.


    Great Scott, I worked out yesterday all day and didn’t eat hardly anything. Jumped out of bed this morning jumped on the scales and and and crap, I didn’t lose any weight! My question to you, our guru of good health on BGD what happened?
