The blogger is back on the beat. Since the last time we were together I have lost close to 90 pounds. An amazing transition if I do say so myself. I could never stand when people would say ďsuch and suchĒ changed my life but I have to say that Losin Large has changed my life.
(I want to punch myself out for saying that).
Clothes fit, the chins are history and this is really Livin Large. Do yourself a favor if you have weight issue... start thinking about your health sooner rather than later. If you continue to with the same routine, one day you will be in jeopardy. Type 2 diabetes is almost a guarantee.
I started slow, working on the having a level patience that I don't normally have. Changes like this donít happen in a week and you must stick to a good routine. Itís really about discipline combined with patience Ė most success stories are.
Whether you like it or not your image and how you look means everything. Would you respect someone with tomato sauce on their shirt trying to make a serious presentation?
Believe me, your appearance counts.
You may think I am insulting, but itís not an insult at all. Itís the damn truth. Even heavy people discriminate against other heavy people.

I hope this holiday season is a happy one for all of you. It will be for me. When I go to parties I don't mind getting dressed. Ring a bell!!!! See you next week.
Hey everybody, I did an interview for the Radiogirl podcast. You can listen to it at the site, or just play it right here. I talk about my new cigar, my show, and I also give some words of advice. Hope you're motivated to do what you love.
I am so tired of people whining and bitching about 2009 and this past decade. Does anyone say anything positive? Hey it was a great year. I'm alive and well and have two arms and two legs to go out and make something happen. Create your own economy perhaps? What a novel idea... Stop watching that idiot in office who rules to the weak hearted. I don't like getting to political in these blogs but it is so clear that he wants us to depend on the government. Itís like being thirsty in the Sahara and here comes Obama with a glass of water to quench you thirst. Youíre the moron that went to the desert on his advice in the first place. This country was not founded on depending on someone else. That is pure weakness and laziness. Stop watching Entertainment Tonight and putting your energy into Oprah and ďThe StarsĒ that don't give a ratís ass about you.
God gave you a brain that is a zillion times stronger than a computer. Use it.
Resolve to depend on you for a change instead of hating your boss. Most people can't stand their boss. If thatís the case don't blame him/her - you took the job. Go out and use your brain and rescue yourself. All the government is going to do is keep preying on the weak. Get smart. Do the opposite like George Costanza. Dare I say, you should be accountable in this world for the actions YOU took? Blaming is a terrible waste of energy.
Just yesterday I was talking to a friend of mine that said her mother never got over her divorce FORTY years ago. She blamed her dad for this, that and the other thing. The woman is now eighty three. Now I ask you out in ďblog landĒ - what is the point of all of this misdirected energy? Did she say yes when he proposed? He may be a loser at this or that but she said yes. Does the EX see and feel her hatred day to day? Who did she screw? Herself of course...
Get off of you ass and change your loser attitude and you won't have to make any resolutions ever again. Things will come to you, take action and you'll be fine. Enjoy 2010 and kick some ass. See you on my podcasts and on the radio.
AHH... the most wonderful time of the year - the holidays.
I do enjoy the holidays like most of you but I have to admit to me sometimes they are more trouble than they are worth. You only know what you know and being raised Jewish it was a low maintenance holiday. You light the menorah, it takes one minute. You throw your kid a small gift and move on. There are eight nights of Hanukkah: one small gift for eight nights. If you were good you may have gotten a "big" gift at the end of Hanukkah. On Christmas, our family went to a movie and then out for Chinese food because that was the only restaurant open at the time.
When I got married things changed because I married a catholic girl. My first attempt at church was not very successful. I thought the Catholics had it right with the "foot rests". I discovered they were for kneeling purposes and received many dirty looks.
I never quite understood about all of the gifts. Why so much I asked my wife? She just told me to shut up and go along with the program; marriage truly is give and take.
The tree was another concern. I had to schlep that horse in and put it in the round stand? I don't get it -working for the holidays. Then we trim the tree. Careful now, the ornaments are everything.
Shopping for several people beside my family? What did I get myself into?
Going into debt for a holiday? Nice.
Things started to turn around when we had kids. To see them walk down the steps with the look on their faces when Santa came was priceless. Bribing them to be good or Santa would not be as nice was a great specialty of mine. I wouldn't trade all of the experiences I had for anything. The bottom line is: appreciate other peoplesí cultures, laugh at yourself along the way and remember no mayo on corned beef kids or I get to laugh at you.
I love reading about stories of kids in our schools. I read today about some kid in Arkansas who didn't want to say the pledge of allegiance. This has nothing to do with my blog but it sparked me thinking about my son in school before he went off to college. When he played hockey on the high school team in his freshman year some kid started to bully him. He is not the type of kid to get bullied, but none the less this other kid was a year older than him and outweighed Harrison (my son).
I remember telling him the bullshit of humoring the kid and see if that worked. I knew it wouldn't. Bullies need to get knocked on their ass to get the message across. When he came home from practice one night he had a big scar on his face. Is that from ... I asked? What do you think was his reply? Always the wiseass; wonder where he gets that from?
I then went into the parent manual which told me to say ďhey buddy why don't you try to just talk to him and let him know your teammates think enough is enoughĒ.
Another gash to his forehead...
This time I said if the kid starts up with you again kick his ass. He may kill you, but he'll go onto the next victim I promise you that. The following Friday night all of the kids were at school at a soccer game and Mr. Bully started up again and Harrison closed his eyes and hit him smack dab in the lip. One should never strut up in front of the ladies.
The kid took five stitches and my son took a three day suspension.
AHHH, isn't life fair. Here is my point. Life isn't fair. Never was or will be. You have two choices. Either to be a wuss and take it from your spouse or boss or whoever Ė or donít.
Here is the deal, the boss, bully, corporation feels they always have the upper hand and can give you crap. What are you going to do about it buddy? My advice is don't take any crap from anybody. Most folks don't live this way because they live in fear. Most of you reading this probably live this way. You all have a voice out there. Use it. I am not suggesting you give them five stitches to the lip. What I am suggesting is that you start to look inward instead of outward and do something about a situation if youíre in one. If you want to change anything in your life look in not out. You have to be strong because you will be in the minority with the Pinker.
Believe me, its a good place to be.
Remember this as well - 1% makes up 96% of the wealth.
Following the masses is not the way to go. Don't do what everyone else is doing. Go against the trend. Yeah, people will laugh and knock you, but that's because they don't have the stones to stand up. Ask yourself, do you want to be like the 96% or the 1% in anything you do? It won't be easy, but it will be worth it. Enjoy the three days off. Thanks Boss.
Its Friday folks - The day you get to go to work and be casual. Doesn't that feel good! This is a little tidbit of freedom you get when you work for the big corporation. Itís a bunch of nonsense. Don't be fooled for one minute. Its smoke and mirrors for the corporate slave. YOU!!!
Wouldn't it be nice to be able to do what you wanted to do everyday?
Everyone has it inside of them. Itís just a question of having the courage to go out and do your own thing. The reason one feels great one Friday is because you feel some freedom. The weekend is coming and you get to wear pretty much what you want to work. This is not really your fault. We have been trained since we were little children. Grow up, get a JOB and try to live a decent life. Did anyone ever tell you when you were small to go for it? If you did something out of the ordinary people told you that you were crazy to be thinking differently. Corporations could care less about you. They don't encourage you. Itís all about them.
Do you think they care about your family? They could give a rat's ass.
You are just a number, sorry to say. Youíre there to get your boss a bonus. The ones that succeed sell their souls to big brother and could care less what happens to you. They give you the B.S. about how much you are valued and then either fire you or cut your salaries. That is why America is so miserable. They eat and drink and do drugs to numb their pain.
They don't feel like they have a voice. I encourage all of you, for thirty minutes a day, to do some personal development. Read a book, watch a tape, journal. Find your self and your voice and stop letting these people take your life. Take some action. Do something for yourself today. Everybody says you should exercise. I suggest you exercise your mind as well as your body.
