This is how I know when I am not eating enough.
The thick black line on the chart is what I am supposed to eat each day on my maintenance program. This is a recipe for about a 1-2 lb weight loss. A year ago I’d have been delighted, but I am learning that the maintenance mindset is very different than the weight-loss mindset, and I’m still trying to figure it out.
I have to admit: once you get it working, CarPlay is pretty nice. One-touch access to Google Maps, Audible, and the iPhone make my road trips a lot more productive and entertaining.
This is what happens when your body changes after decades of obesity.
- You go through all of your old clothes.
- You put everything that is so large that it is clown-like into trash bags.
- You fill the back of your truck with the clothes bags
- You take it to the Coalition Thrift Store in Ventura.
- And then you come home to discover you have nothing to wear.
- Honestly, I don’t even know what size I wear anymore.
Not complaining, mind you…

A great month this month with SCRIBEDELIVERY. Zebra Midliners showed up just as my last highlighter was running low. And I have been waiting for an excuse to try the Uni Signo pens.
And Denik Notebooks? Just brilliant, a slightly more creative change from my long shelves of Moleskines.
Scouts and leaders from Troops 234 and 1234 take a lunch break after serving lunch at the California Veterans Home in Ventura.
Note Aaron not eating. Neither did I. We were tempted, to be sure, but needed to stick with the discipline.
The veterans were fantastic, and it was an honor to be invited back this year to spend the day with these heroes.
At their request, we took our Sea Scout ship camping at Lake Piru last weekend. In order to work themselves into a pre-kayaking sweat, the boatswain suggested a hike. Here we are near the end of our 4.7 mile trek through the September heat.
Needless to say, the Scouts were ready for lunch and some on-the-water time when they got back. A fantastic two days in the hills, and more proof that the BSA is just an unbelievable organization.
