“Thanks! I definitely need to just maintain. If I lost anymore I'd most likely disappear.”
“These six tips teach you to spot hunger and eat to stay satisfied--so you control calories and shed pounds without "dieting."
1. Learn to identify your spot on the hunger scale
Do you really know what hunger feels like? Before you can rein it in, you must learn to recognize the physical cues that signal a true need for nourishment. Prior to eating, use our hunger scale below to help figure out your true food needs:
An uncomfortable, empty feeling that may be accompanied by light-headedness or jitteriness caused by low blood sugar levels from lack of food. Binge risk: high.
Your next meal is on your mind. If you don't eat within the hour, you enter dangerous "starving" territory.
Your stomach may be growling, and you're planning how you'll put an end to that nagging feeling. This is optimal eating time.
You're satiated, not full but not hungry either. You're relaxed and comfortable and can wait to nosh.
If you're still eating, it's more out of momentum than actual hunger. Your belly feels slightly bloated, and the food does not taste as good as it did in the first few bites.
You feel uncomfortable and might even have mild heartburn from your stomach acids creeping back up into your esophagus.”

“Hmmm, I could run that scam up here. Take wimmin into the Superior Hiking trail for two weeks of no food and "exercise". hhmmmm...”
“I'll be the first. You're going to have to pay me though. Let's say $200? (what a bargain!) When you want me to come over?

“That's great Maple! I haven't lost any but I'm not gaining either (yet). Really watching my food intake and excercise this time around.”
“I managed to lose 110lbs last Friday.”
“lost 17 lbs.. I plumped up after the accident..
“Dang lumber, that was some duece. 110#'s in one day!”
“I just started...We will see how it goes...I need to drop 25:)”
“Stay away from the doughnut thread ----”
“I hit 40 lbs. lost today. I made it through Thanksgiving with a sensible meal of 1/2 bbq chicken (small chicken), a house salad and sauteed mushrooms. I should be hitting my 50 lbs mark right around christmas so that should be motivation enough to stay on track through the holidays.”
“how much have you lost since i saw you at morgan monroe?”
“So I got on the scale this morning and, butt nekkid, I have lost 27 pounds this year. Ten more to go!”
“I've lost 10 tis year, but wasn't trying.”
“good for you CD
nigal, what's your status?”
“You should try breastfeeding! I eat more than I ever have in my life, and I've lost all my baby weight plus ~5 pounds (so far). I eat it, he sucks it right back out! Actually it's sort of annoying b/c I get so hungry, so quickly.”
“i've tried, my wife won't let me...she just says "it's for the baby"...selfish”
“HAHA! I set that one up good, right? Right.”
“Okay thrifty...have you tried any of the milk she has pumped?”
“not on purpose...how's your son?”
“Thrifty, I will steal nigals thunder for a minute....
He is one fine looking piece of man-meat.”
“LOL, well that goes with out saying...i was looking for some actual numbers here”
“birch spoons better that nig.
Almost had to take him to the ER last night. New meds we are using in the nebulizer are working better. Can't wait to see the bill for all this.”
“I've only lost 17 pounds, but I haven't been breast feeding..

“so let's see, 17 pounds X 16oz/pound...nah, 442 ounces just doesn't have the same ring to it”
“How many kilograms is that?”
“something wrong with all of you.......”
“not sure about kilos, but it's about 4 large bricks, or 40 anal balloons”
“actually it's almost 3 gallons of water..
Think about 3 gallons of water added to your pack...
quit a bit of extra baggage...

“the real question is how many cu. in. is that”
“Thrifty, if you like anal balloons(not sure what they are) you will love this.
“Rocky, that would depend on the density of the object....
“lol, marko, you need to rent the movie mule”
“Left 7 pounds on the JMT this summer and kept it off - woo hoo!”
“I haven't weighed myself this morning (gotta get that favorable post-poop weight ya know) but I've bounced this week. I'm at 43 pounds which should be more but I seem to have suffered from an influx of red meat and 90 proof liquor from staying at Sass and birch's last weekend.”
“influx of red meat...from...birch's last weekend.
I love it when you talk dirty to me.”
“I almost wrote injection of red meant in my diet but I ain't completely easy. LOL!”
