  1. death is very sobering

    yes it is amazeing,,,,,

    I was 205 this spring and the doctor put me on blood pressure meds and colestoral meds...

    my sisters forced me to start a jenny craig diet..in mid june

    Actually, its a pretty good diet.
    I cost me less per week for 3 meals a day than I was spending for
    just lunch and other snaks per day......

    .
    and the lard just seemed to fall off me this summer
    and the food is probably better than I have eaten in a long while....

    now down to 179,,
    and I went from a size 38 pants down to 34 .

    now I am all muscle (pretty much).

    cut the blood presusre pills down to half.


    I need to be here for another 15 years if possible

    Thats a good thing because you don't want to have happen to you what I had...from the time my heart attack started I only had 5 Min. for people to start working on me...even at that the survival rate is only a little over 1/2 of 1%.....you need to get a stress test...that will show you how you realy are...

    At least it won't stuff up the toilet, lol. :)
  8. Nordic trac for me

    I bought a nordic trac off craigs list for $100 this spring...real nice one

    Its ideal for low impact, but intence body work out

    I am doing 20 minutes on it every other night...while watching tv......
    . .....its a pretty good sweat, and I dont even notice it while watching some stupid nonsense on tv.......
    I think if I do this on a regualr basis,
    it probably will keep all the nasties away ......




    the 8 year old temp is now at 102....

    it looks like another long night for me and mamma.

    Mark, I am not sure what you mean when you say nasties, like maybe heart disease or things like I got, but I got to tell you the truth, excercise is great but it is not the complete answer. My husband walked daily miles and I ran marathons. Literally. Living long is a comb of good genes,healthy lifestyle, limited stress, good diet and enough excercise. And, some good luck. (my grandparents lived to be almost 100, yet no one they gave birth to lived past their mid 50's or early 60's). and their was 13 of them on one side alone.

    One good thing though, is if you work up a good sweat, it will keep away those you want to, ha ha ha ha. For me, that is the rellies. :)
    The Swine Flu has the same amazing results, swine flu can be your friend.

    I go to the gym 4 times a week and park myself on a treadmill behind the best looking girl I can find :D Motivation :D Allright, I'm a dirty old man :eek:
  13. thank you for the tip


    I have thought of doing that myself, but I have come to realize that its not going to do me any good at all to be looking at those hot babes,,,

    its like dangling a juicey steak out in front of a starveing man and telling him he cant have it.
    you can smell it, admire the beauty of it, even gaze longingly ...
    but if you touch it.......it probably will kill ya....
    or get you in more trouble than you have ever known....




    I would rather just watch something educational
    on the discovery or history channel....and just plod along

    I am not too sexist do you think???

    Unfortunately, nothing is perfect but imagine a world without vaccines.

    True....

    And then this...The state of NY was going to force all health care workers to receive the shot but the NY Supreme Court placed an injunction on it saying the director who ordered it over stepped his power when he ordered it...

    The thing is they have no idea if the vaccine is safe because it has not been tested...
