A very belated update.

It's been a coupla months since I checked in. No news is good news I guess. (Well, there's been a lot of news, but this might not be the place to post it. ;-) )

Coming up on 5 months since surgery and trying to break 100 lbs lost. Getting close - I've actually reached it, depending on which scale I'm on, but my own scale says I still have a few pounds to go.

April was kind of a lost month regarding weight loss - net loss for the month was practically nothing, and I ended

So the other day I was at Costco, and I'm certain this attractive cashier was giving me the once over, checking me out.

Now, that hasn't happened in a l-o-o-o-n-g time.

Well, I definitely didn't expect to ever be blogging the following, but I am dating a fellow forum member!

I won't say who, as I'll probably get creamed just for writing this (nah, she said go ahead and post it), but we've had a few dates so far, and she's just a wonderful woman and we get along great. Good thing Facebook messaging is free or we'd be running a h-u-u-u-g-e bill by now.

Sometimes I wonder if I'm doing this right. I take a sort of lax approach to my diet, in that I have not banned very many foods (Ice cream and white bread - like bagels - is about it), I don't journal and I don't count calories or protein. My exercise is a bit sporadic as it only consists of playing racquetball a couple of times a week, though this is one area that I do want to change to try and get more exercise more regularly.

My basic strategy is just to focus on getting my protein
