Jack Weighs In Week 14

Jack Finds Summer's Tough for Dieting

-- And the reason is the routine that helped my lose 60 pounds between January and June has now been thrown out the window. I hesitate to blame my two beautiful daughters, but the fact is that with them at home I haven't been as conscientious and committed as when they're at school. There are just too many temptations to skip exercise and take them out -- especially since I see relatively little of them during the school year.

The answer, of course, is to get serious again and realize that we can have plenty of active and non-fattening fun together. In any event, the girls will soon be visiting my parents for three weeks -- and then I'll have no excuse! And I'll miss them.
