169 and Feelin' Fine...

The holidays are always tricky for the weight watchers of the world. This has been my first Thanksgiving and Christmas below 200 lbs. since I was in diapers. So naturally, I've been a bit nervous going into the season. With both holidays now past, let's see where my current weight is as of this morning...

For the eagle eyed this needs no explanation. But for the rest of us, we are looking at a chart showing my weight on a monthly basis from Jan '18 to Dec '18. On the high end we see roughly 250 lbs. but on the low end, the count is now a svelte 169.6 lbs. My first goal of 220 blew by. My second goal of 200 is in the rear view mirror and now my third goal of 185 seems downright chubby. I settled on 175 (which is where the small trophy icon sits). Even through the dreaded Thanksgiving/Christmas challenge I have reached a new personal record of 169 lbs. 

I guess that means I can really let myself go at the New Year's Eve party. Cheese ball, here I come!

What is That Between My Legs? Is That A...

This journey that has been my weight loss has been filled with adventure, twists and turns. Things I never saw coming continue to surprise and occasionally delight me. Today one such event occured. As I was doing a round of sit-ups--as I often do now--I paused in mid-crunch to look at Anna across the room as she was speaking to me. I realized that I was able to see her... from between my thighs. Is that...? Can it...? Could it possibly be true?

Yes! For the first time since in utero, I have a thigh gap. I hadn't thought it was metaphysically possible, yet there is was. In all of its negative spacial glory. I'm now the proud owner of my very own thigh gap. Oh, how the other guys at the gym will be so jealous.

But now as I write this, I realize this is a bit of a responsibility I am not prepared for. What do I do with a thigh gap? How do I take care of it? Do you feed a thigh gap? If so, what? Or does feeding it actually kill it? So many unanswered questions. I've said this before and I'll say it again, "Where is a supermodel when you need one?" If anyone is well qualified to answer my litany of questions they are.

I suppose I better stop blogging and get onto Google to find out more about thigh gap nurturing. It's too late for "What to Expect When You're Gap-ing." I better jump straight to "On Becoming Gap-wise."

I'm Still Demented...

I'm happy to announce my return to radio with a new radio show called "Still Demented." This show pays homage to Dr. Demento, (but not close enough to be sued...). We (my co-host is Steve Grosz) play fun novelty music, stand-up comedy and just have a great time.

We air each Sunday at 8am and again 8pm. You can listen live in the Phoenix metropolitan area on 88.7 FM. We stream online at  We also will have each episode available as a podcast; look for it on iTunes.

Come on, listen along and be demented with me!
