Couldn't hack the pee color I take it.  What now?

The color was the main factor, but I didn't like anything about the car.  

I'm getting another Town Car and I'm going to build the 'Bird.

Been struggling lately..... not a big deal but life has been hard.

 

Decided I didnt want to be fat anymore as I had a flare up from right after buying new suits a few weeks ago.  Since my last post I've had to throw out a belt and my new suits already fit well.  I had the pants cut a size smaller than I was and they already fit.

 

I do have some pretty sincere problems now with clothes.   The taper I have is now past "extreme slim fit" and they do not make that fit in my shoulder/chest size.  I now have to pick a wider silhouette in a size down then have the measurements adjusted for the shoulders out and waist in.  Pretty soon I will be completely priced out of any option other than nearly bespoke.

 

FML

 

But also... fuckin' 4 sizes in a week.  God damn champion level weight loss.

No.

 

Just made a choice. I talked to a few endo people and my arthritis doc.  There is some anecdotal evidence that really chubby guys who force their body fat into the 12-15% range can actually see some favorable changes in their testosterone.  It's worth a shot.

 

I've never had "low back pain" before.  As I lose weight and stand up straighter my center of gravity changed and all of my belly pulls on my back now.  It sucks.  I've lost so much just to be in more pain.

 

So I prioritize fat loss above everything.  It's going well.

I'm in pain.  It's a good motivator. 

 

My weight has only shifted about 20 pounds, but I moved 3 spots on the belt and had to buy a new one.

I wanted to wait until I found a pool or place to hike or ride and do it all through increased cardio.

 

Instead I just turned up the deliberate walking and basically eat > a pound of greens or more a day with my evening meal.  

Had to reduce the weight or reps on some lifts, I'm pretty tired at only 1,300-2,500 calories a day, but I was able to replace a lot of daily routines with lunges and some stretching at night.

 Speaking of mustangs. Just put a new transmission pan gasket on for the third time. Can’t seem to get the pig to stop leaking. Went with the Lube Locker gasket this round. Had great luck with them on the Xterra, so have high hopes.

Suits to me are like filters to Instagram THOTs and fake tits to strippers.

 

ROI.

My only option is to be fatter, or at least try being thin for a while and see if it works vs drugs or surgery.  Or just be in pain.  I just turn every meal into a salad and it comes off.  I still eat brownies and carbs too.  Just less.

Chinese leftovers?  Wonderful on arugula and spinach with baby greens.

Taco night?  Taco salad night.  More arugula,  some baby kale was on sale, more greens and go ham.

Tomorrow pops goes under the knife and hopefully this esophageal cancer will be gone. Radiation and chemo were good at shrinking it, but there was still one hot spot they were concerned about. I hate being told to stay here since my older brother and his wife are already up there for this, and he hates people fussing over him.

I'm gonna be honest....I'm scared as shit for him. This is also the first time that before tonight (tonight he seems confident) that he has admitted to being scared too.

Without the high nutrient veg i'll eat too much other stuff to get the nutrients I need.

Poop out a pant size ever morning though.
