Following the Final Fifty program

I promised my fans I would post a recent pic. Although I still have 38 lbs. to go, I look back over the last 2 1/2 years and give a final fifty prop to Dr. Phil McGraw. I could have become the 1000 lb. man, but by following the 7 keys of weight loss I was able to open the door of health and happyness.

Is weight loss genetic?

Is fat loss genetic

Add to My Profile | More Videos
I spoke to a gentleman today who has been thin all of his life. Sometimes I think obesity is 90 percent genetics. Of course, we can diet and exercise with all of our hearts, and look the best that we can, but overall it is in the genes. Maybe that is why all of us obese(fatties) are always so grouchy and even fight amongst ourselves? We got dealt a pair of twos, and have to face down the world series of poker. I broke even again, and just finished the marvell comics series blogwars. Captain American was forced to fight with Spiderman due to a Fatalist Spell cast by the Red Skull. It was codenamed genetic predisposition. C-YA in the funny papers.

Going Crazy in Fogel Land

Jack had a great line in the movie,"As good as it gets" . On my journey to Fogelland I got caught in the battle of the network bloggers. The original show was cancelled years ago, and the sequel should never have been filmed. Basically, a bunch of nonsense. I left a message on former fatties site telling him how ironic it was that his site was the inspiration for this blog, and his changing direction inspired me to do likewise. I understand why society rejects the Obese. Biggies can't even get along with each other. I haven't decided which fork in the weight loss road to take,but I have decided to tell the network bloggers,as Jack did in the movie,"Go sell crazy somewhere else,we're all stocked up here."

Quit digging your grave with a knife and fork

I haven't had a chance to read the Governor's book, but the review on has really peaked my interest. Although genetics contribute significantly to obesity, ultimately we are responsible for our own weight. Maybe the fans of can weight in and give their opinions? I don't have any ads on this site, so if you buy the book, my piggy bank doesn't ring. The Captain is good at loosing weight, but bad at making money.

Welcome Mike Huckabee to a interview

The Captain is playing a belated april fools joke on all my fans. But seriously gang, a final fifty congratulations to Governor Mike Huckabee. He has lost over 100 lbs,like the Captain, and kept it off. Here is the most reliable source on the internet,WIKIPEDIA.COM, story on how the Governor journeyed from being a big fattie to a FIT and Trim future president.

Health advocacy and personal weight loss

When elected governor of Arkansas, Mike Huckabee was significantly overweight. During 2003, physicians diagnosed the governor with adult-onset diabetes and informed him that he would not live more than 10 years if he did not lose weight. Prompted by this diagnosis (as well as the subsequent death of former Governor Frank D. White, whose obesity led to a fatal heart attack), Huckabee went on a diet. Huckabee subsequently lost over 110 pounds,[10][11] according to a New York Times article at a pace so rapid that "it was as if he simply unzipped a fat suit and stepped out."[12]

He has publicly recounted his previous burdens as an overweight man: the steps of the Arkansas capitol building from the entrance of the building up to the Governor's office were so long and steep that Huckabee would be out of breath and exhausted by the time he reached the top of the stairs; Huckabee secretly feared that he would be interviewed by media at the top of the steps, and that he would be unable to respond appropriately due to his overexertion and breathlessness.[13]

Huckabee has talked about his weight loss and made health care reform a major component of his later tenure as governor. This has included a well-received series of productive dialogues between leaders in the food industry and leaders in public health.[14]

Huckabee ran in the 2006 New York City Marathon.[15]

Late Night Run

Thanks for the tips guys. I forgot I needed to go out for my late night run. I broke even this week. Another gooseegg. Rats! I am pondering whether to quit creatine again. I think I might be retaining to much H2O.
