I ran 2 loops today.  My knee seemed to behave.  So that's good.  Day 1 of starting my diet again.  Gained almost everything back over the holidays that I lost last year.  So that's bad.

Get your act together Burtman! Diets don't work. Set yourself up on a Nutrition System and a path to success.

From Burt on Tue, Jan 08, 2019 at 11:01:58 from

Does it also involve telling all my friends and having them join my "weight loss team"?

From Tom Slick on Tue, Jan 08, 2019 at 11:12:02 from

I've always found that misery loves company and the more friends you include, the more support you have to succeed in your goals.

From Addison (Addie) on Tue, Jan 08, 2019 at 22:32:06 from

Howdy Mr. Burt. I'm glad your knee behaved.

Don't forget, you'll need to follow 'so and so' and add them to your favorites, then tag 20 people you don't know, as well as having them follow 'so and so.' Once you've done that, send a message to yourself that shows 10 of the 20 people you tagged. Tag yourself and then forward the message to 'so and so,' and await approval to receive 1% off the cost of the nutrition system for the month of February. Did you get that?

From Tracy on Wed, Jan 09, 2019 at 05:42:14 from

What did you eat over the holidays? I would recommend avoiding that in the future. Ha.

From Burt on Wed, Jan 09, 2019 at 08:26:11 from

Addie - clear as mud.

Tracy - What didn't I eat over the holidays?
