The Incredible Shrinking Ray - Week 24

I am happy to report that having my normal Bourbon Chicken with the steamed rice instead of fried rice prevented the huge jump in weight overnight. I'm once again a happy camper!

I don't know how much of an impact the switch to water over juice is going to be on my weight, but I already "feel" that it's better for me. I think the pound lost this week has more to do with the day I forgot to eat (previous entry) that any other changes I've made.

In totally unrelated news, I woke to find that George Carlin has passed, and I come into work to find that my boss' bother, a contractor that spearheaded a lot of the reconstruction at our offices over the year and genuinely nice guy, was killed in a car accident over the weekend. I'm unhappy today for both of those reasons, and they're both in my thoughts.

Starting Weight: 237 lbs.
Weeks 1-23 Loss: 21 lbs.
Week 24 Loss: 1 lb.
Current Weight: 215 lbs.

Way ta go on the "shrinking," Ray! Stay with it.

I, too, was surprised to hear of Carlin's passing. I've had a strange one way relationship with Carlin over the years. On one hand I genuinely appreciated much of his political commentary and wit. The man was truly a comedic genius. On the other, I had a tough time reconciling my appreciation with my genuine angst over his militant atheism. Don't get me wrong, Ray; If the man feels that atheism is his "thing," that's his prerogative. But, I was underwhelmed and offended with how his atheism often derived.

Sorry to hear about the passing of your acquaintance. Hope and your wife are well.
