"Weighing myself everyday" yet again igoring what EVERY expert on weight loss will tell you ... stop, let me repeat for effect, STOP weighing yourself so frequently. It's a guaranteed way to screw yourself over. If you don't have the self-discipline to say I'm going to keep on track and only weigh myself once a week ... then you've got NO chance of succeeding long-term.

Have you not read Inks advice?  Is your advice somehow more credible than Inks?  One style does NOT fit all.  I will weigh myself everyday mainly because I HAVE to know how I am doing EVERY single day.  I go crazy otherwise and am even more prone to misjudge how I'm doing.

I'm not challenging Inks advice, but I speak as someone who lost 40lbs and has kept it off for 10 years. All I can say is day to day weighing is a nightmare for someone so easily distracted. I threw out my scales and only measured myself every fortnight.

That may have worked for you, but what works for one person may not work for the next person.  My thing is if I don't weigh everyday, then I am more likely to be overly optimistic about how I've done that day and think myself to have done better than I actually have.  That will lead to sabotage of my own campaign.  The net result is I am more likely to GAIN weight as opposed to lose weight.  You've probably noticed, but I am different than a lot of people.  What works for the average person probably will not work for me and what affects the average person will likely affect me a lot differently.  A couple of examples, caffeine is more of a depressant for me instead of a stimulant (ok, that's not too uncommon, but still) and  I can't lay down with a headache without it getting much worse.

It really depends on your personality.  If you're like me, and can realize weight fluctuates everyday (or becomes motivated when your weight gains in one day), day weighing is good.  Day weighing is what made me lose weight through wrestling.

This would be impossible for Bushie, who needs something to schedule and track obsessively.  Frequent updates eliminate uncertainty, which he's terrified of.  It doesn't help him any, of course, and you're probably right, but personality disorders are like that Tongue

I know... but that is more likely to lead to failure, because while Inks might understand that weight fluctuates, sometimes (and more likely to be) more wildly while you're trying to lose weight, I don't think Bushie has demonstrated the ability to have the degree of reason required.

Best wishes to him...

Sunday!  Sunday is my favorite day of the week.  Why?  It is the day I am able to worship the King of kings and Lord of lords corporately with a body of believers.  Going to church on Sunday is the best way to prepare for Monday-Saturday.  Sunday trumps the other 6 days hands down.  It more often than not gives me renewed strength and courage to face Monday.  Sunday is the first day of the week, and there is no better place to start the week than in God's house.

Wait, when was Kenya March 2013 even mentioned?  You'd lose your job taking that much time off this early.  Were you going to quit before you went to Kenya?

For real! Stop taking all this time off. The first vacation I took was in October, over a year after I started with this company.

Me either.. I hate taking time off. Even though I get all this PTO time, I'm always fearful I will lose my job because of it. Of course, I don't have my mom to depend on for my expenses if I lose my job, so maybe I have a different view of it.

I haven't actually been approved for that time off.  Now that it will be delayed until the Summer time at the earliest, it will be slightly easier.  If I don't get approved for that time off.  Its simple, I'll stay at work and take my trip in March 2014.  I really don't want to wait 2 years to see the kids, but if that is what is required, it is what will have to happen.  I had not committed to this Kenya trip, its just something that I would like to go to.  Like I said, I've got the leave request into my supervisor and its totally his decision.  If he lets me go, great, if not, that's fine I'll just go in March 2014.  I'm not going to purposefully jeopardize my job, so I'm leaving it totally in my supervisor's court.

My job is pretty good about having a clear attendance policy. You always know if you're going to get in trouble or get close to firing. I call in "sick" all the time and have never even been on a warning.

Also Bushie, something else I thought of today because I saw it: Have you ever been to a church that had an attractive female preaching?

I don't agree with female preachers.  Its not a big turn off for me, and I have no problem with them actually preaching, but I would not become a member of their church.  I was unnerved at my high school baccalaureate ceremony, because the service was led by a female pastor.  I told my pastor about that and he just shrugged his shoulders and said "if they're not against us, they're for us".  I have a good friend from college (a female) who is a pastor of 2 Methodist churches in Northeast Oklahoma and a Chaplain in the US Navy.  I would never attend her church as a member, but I might go and just visit.

That's really too bad, since that's a huge plus. Not only did we have an attractive female preaching, she dressed like a girl at some Uptown coffee shop instead of doing something formal. Before the service she was even talking about how she had just recently bought the knee-high boots she was wearing because she was trying to procrastinate writing her sermon by shopping.

I'm old school and I wish everyone in my church would go back to wearing suits (men) and dresses (women).  I know its the changing culture, but I miss the days where all the men and boys would wear suits and the women and girls would wear dresses.  It was so fun dressing up every Sunday.  I've slacked off myself, but largely that's trying not to overdress from the crowd and stand out for the wrong reasons.  Its not a big deal, but i prefer formal dress at church.

Heck, I'm one of those weird people that like wearing suits more than I like wearing jeans.

Those people are probably not hipsters.

Also Bushie is an odd person to be working at a call center with that above post.

I don't go to church to be a hipster. I go to be miserable, sit in an uncomfortable pew and listen to people speak about jesus in greek. Sometimes it's a great message and other times it just reminds me of why I am hellbound.

Oh, and sometimes, I will window shop all the greek girls to see if I can find one to cook and clean up after me, as all good greek girls do.
