Good morning, everyone! If you're like me, you need a respite from the nonstop, 24/7 media barrage of coronavirus and/or Super Tuesday news, right? So why not stop here and rejoice with me as I celebrate my first weigh-in of Lent with (of course) a loss! 192.0 Whew! It'd be kind of embarrassing to GAIN … Continue reading Welcome to your coronavirus- and politics-free blog post!
Hi, everyone! Oops -- just realized I'd forgotten to do a blog post this morning! Dare I say I made an "ash" of myself? (Get it? 'Cause it's Ash Wednesday?) Oh well, sorry! Anyhoo, no weigh-in today, but please enjoy this blast from the past (last year, to be exact) and I'll see ya next … Continue reading Repost for Ash Wednesday, ’cause I’m preoccupied, dagnabit!
"I’m fat; how are you?" Great line, isn't it? Sure wish I'd come up with it! But no, I have to give proper credit: it's from Simcha Fischer's "What's for Supper?

Meanwhile, without further adieux, here's … Continue reading Clean Monday: Last Weigh-In Before Pascha!
Good morning, everyone! Yes, that's right -- as I've occasionally mentioned in this blog before, I'm an Eastern Catholic (Byzantine, Ruthenian, Greek Catholic, or whatever). We're simple folk with different ways, but we're cool. Anyway, the main thing to know about us as it relates to this blog is that even though we're Catholic, we … Continue reading Post-Road Trip, Pre-Lent Weigh-In
Well, good morning, everyone, and happy Monday! Time for another weigh-in ... and as you may remember, last week I had a small GAIN. But as Homer Simpson once said, "hope springs internal," so let's step on the ol' scale and see where it lands. Ready? Here goes: 206.8 Hey, that's great! Nice!
