That's remarkably accurate, given the celebration I've allowed myself for my success today.

If there are no other questions or comments, I will offer a reflection on this entire ordeal, what I have learned, what advice I would offer, what I could give back to the world that has so generously allowed this physical (and otherwise) transformation to occur.

For people who are concerned about their weight, this is the singular, essential expression of wisdom I would offer. Everything else can be forgotten:

If you think you'd be happier if you lost weight, you have to do it in the other order.

That's it. No diet scheme or book will ever tell you that, because then they'd have nothing to sell. You absolutely must be happy first, then the pounds will melt away.

A question from the crowd?

But I AM happy now, I just think I'd be happier if I lost weight.

Then you must achieve that level of happiness first. The weight will, if you will, drop to meet it.

This is your only option. You cannot lose weight to be happy, you can only be happy to lose weight.

Can I have the rest of your uppers if you're done with them?

No uppers were involved in this process, no matter what my drunk, depressed friend here tries to insinuate.

How we gonna sell your 'personal inner journey' on Ellen or Oprah if you don't have a recovery problem? Fat hausfraus in Iowa dont want meditation as a weight solution, they want fried chicken by the bucket and a bottle of pills. I figure a fifteen minute spot on daytime TV and a supply of reds and we could all be rich!

If I ever write a book, which I won't, this would in fact be the topic. Until then, you all have exclusive access to my wisdom on the topics of weight loss and happiness.

Thankfully, nobody here has a problem with either of those, so I think we're done here. Jonsey?

Actually, no, we're a bunch of goddamn slobs and the two guys in our group that are athletes (gsdgsd and Knuckles) - well, one got it and was sick for a month and was confirmed (Greg) and the other has been sick as a dog on two separate occasions since February and either of those incidents could plausibly have been COVID-19; I'll guess we'll know for sure if Knuckles ever takes a job for 14.75 an hour plus 50% bennies at the Bronx Zoo.

Well, this last page was pretty bad, so "best of" now seems excessive. I guess we can just let it scroll off the page, into the anals of time.

No, loafergirl is a gal, so I'd include her but that's it really.... hmm. Yeah. Can't think of anyone else. Boy, it'd be a shame if this thread was moved to the Best of base and nobody could ever post to it again eh, Tons of Fun? Ha hahaha!
