Still winning.
3) Message boards : Cafe SETI : Lose Weight With Monday (Message 1549105)
Posted 4 hours ago by Profile Donald L. Johnson
During the year I spent in Navy nuclear propulsion training, I got a growth spurt - grew 3 inches (5'10" - 6'1") and gained almost 50 lbs (175 - 220). During my Naval carreer, my weight fluctuated between about 210 and 230, since I retired from active duty, it's been more like 220-240.

When my USDA season ended in February, I was at 222, when we started this thread I was at 240. I just stepped on the scale (analog, and old), and it read 236. That's about 4 lbs in what, 6 weeks? Progress, however slight...

In the summer heat we have here (95-105F, June-September), it's difficult for me to do much out-doors from about 1000 until after 1900, but I have been trading chips and pastry snacks for dried fruit, nuts, and fruit juices, and working at not sitting still for long periods. (My computer chair is soooo comfy, and it reclines!)

If I can keep this up, and get more active as the summer wanes and the weather cools, I should be under 230 (225?) when I go back to work in October.

<Edit> Hi Julie </Edit>

Byron, IMNSHO, everybody who participates here (with 1 or 2 possible exceptions) is a winner. Self-confidence comes with effort and practice - each task successfully accomplished should raise your levels of competence and confidence.

Late night streaming jazz off the local NPR station. Tired and stiff, but it's still too warm (90F on the back porch) to sleep.

Maybe I'll drop into Rocky's for a pitcher of Raspberry Iced Tea......

I'm sorry if I am coming across argumentative or rude. That is not my intention at all. Lets just say I am dealing with a lot of stress due to my Father, who has Alzheimer's, being in the hospital after a bad fall late last night.

Thank you every one for trying to help out.

If you'd like to talk about that, with people who have been through similar difficulties, drop imto the Cafe' Seti and visit the PTSD and PTSD 2 threads.

Winning before breakfast on a cool, breezy, cloudy Sunday morning. Wondering if the predicted 103F will stand (hope not), but if it does, how uncomfortably humid it may be......

I sometimes think I choose my battles very poorly.

Being imperfect human beings, we all sometimes make poor choices.
Sometimes we choose poorly, but sometimes the battle chooses us, and our only choice is to fight or surrender.

After nudnight (local) visit.
Candlelight vigil for a fallen local soldier tonight.
Still wound up, and at 85F at midnight, too warm to sleep.
Not really winning tonight.....

Winning on a warm Friday morning.
Hummingbirds in the bottlebrush tree, and butterflies in the roses outside my office window. And predicted high temp only 99F today. Might get some yardwork done before I succumb to the siren song of the lounge chair under the mulberry trees......

I've gotten emails with the link to that video from 6 different people this week. Next time I'm back in Milwaukee or Winneconne visiting relatives, I'll have to go see it, and the old Manitowac Shipyard....

Posted 3 days ago by Profile Donald L. Johnson
Looks like the silly season all the time in a certain thread then

Yep, seeing as much of the frivolous political posturing and hyperbole tends to appear in the silly season itself...

In case anyone gets worried this is NOT a return to Politics.

42 hours later...

If 142 Israelis and 154 Arabs are fighting over 69 acres of land for 5 days, who won? To get the answer, you multiply 14215469 by 5, turn the calculator upside down.

In the Europe thread, how silly when there is an Israel/Palestine thread.

spell012? That's about what it looks like on My phone when upside down...

Mine reads "SHELLOIL"
Which does me no good, as I have stock in Exxon and Chevron but not Royal Dutch/Shell
