    Fat Woodworkers

    So,

    I seem to have noticed that a number of us wood workers seem to enjoy our food and beverages, maybe just a little too much.

    Stu got things going with posting a 'weight ticker' on his sig. I noticed someone else do it, so I decided to as well.

    I think with losing weight, one of the things that helps is a degree of 'accountability'. Certainly putting one of those tickers on your sig is a way to get that, cause if there's anything I know about the guys on this forum (picture police?) is that they will enforce that accountability.

    So I decided to post mine, and I'd encourage anyone else who wants to lose weight to do it as well. It's a way we can support each other, and perhaps, help each other to get healthier.

    No pressure mind you, but if you want to participate, feel free...

    Well, you never, never, NEVER ask a woman to state her weight. (but I will say I have lost 10 lbs in the last few months). If I can bust in to the 150's in the next few weeks, I'll be happy (I'm 5'8").

    My 18 yr old son has lost 90 lbs in 7 months. Through going to the gym every night and doing lots of hiking and changed his diet no more junk food. Can't be more proud of him. He has set the example for me and as soon as my knee is healed I am dropping the extra 40 lbs I have.

    What a great idea. As soon as I'm done moving, I'll jump in too.

    Do they have a ticker for moving weight instead of losing it? I don't need to lose any, but I could stand to move about 10 pounds from my gut to the rest of my upper body. Nothing a few hundred sit-ups a day wouldn't fix, but my back and sit-ups don't get along well at all.

    Best of luck with your diet Brent, you are ahead of me by some distance, but I hope to catch up to you in the end!
