“To lengthen your life, shorten your meals”

So it has come to this!!! After years of attempting, and mostly failing, to lose the blubberous mass accumulating around my mid section, I have decided to use the possibility of public humiliation as a motivational tool to get off my fat ass and finally accomplish what I should have done 20 years ago.

So Welcome to Pondus Damnum – the blog I have created to track my progress. Here I will post details of this incredible new journey I am embarking on my attempt to quit stuffing my face with pizza, pop tarts, doughnuts, and any other high calorie, high fat, low nutrition crap that happens to stray into my gravity well!!

Along the way I will also post other tidbits that I come across (or that I make up out of whole cloth), that demonstrate the benefits of becoming a lesser person.

So kick back, grab a rice cake…and enjoy the journey, humiliation, pain, agony, well we will see how it turns out!

    Wouldn’t you have more sucess starting on 1/12 rather then 12/12?

    Advice. Don’t eat those Mackie meals in Mary Graydon.

    Good luck my friend

      Ha! Dave you are quite right…I certainly picked the worst time of year to start a diet!!! Course if I get through the holidays the rest of the year should be a piece of cake (so to speak).

      Actually, if all I had was Mackie meals I don’t think I would have a problem…remember how skinny I was in college!!!

      Thanks for the encouragement!!!!
