Jack Weighs In Week 8

Jack Loses (Only) One More Pound

And I know why: I'm going back to New Jersey to see my family later this month and decided to binge a little -- actually a lot -- before really buckling down.

This, of course, is stupid. Dr. Pratha Atluri of the Medical Weight Management Center in Montgomery gently explained how binging throws off your metabolism. I remember Rhoda's line from the Mary Tyler Moore show: "A moment on the lips; a lifetime on the hips." Well, hopefully not. I'll try to do better.

By the way, please pull for my trainer, Jim Nichols of Club Champions. He's competing this Saturday to regain the Mr. Cincinnati body building title he first won ten years ago.

Will let you know how he does. Note that Jim takes NO steroids!

Best wishes,
