  1. Washing your hands for 20 seconds, what do you sing? (Besides "Happy Birthday", twice) Entries must be: Popular song that people know, ages 18 to 78. No deep cuts. A 20 second excerpt, and a catchy tune. Choruses preferred. Good pace a bonus. The more fitting/ironic the lyrics, the better. Go!
  2. Made the mistake of stepping on a scale after a week at my parents place eating mom's cooking. It was not good. Will take some time to correct this for sure.
  3. 12/16: 174.5. In a holding pattern with the holidays having an impact. Probably going to be my last weigh-in of the year as I'm traveling the next few weeks. We'll see what I come back with after the new year. Given that a relative is a key person at one of NYC's top bakeries, I'm going to have a lot of temptation to wade through.
  4. 12/9: 174.0. Not bad. Hoping this means I'm back on track. Really wanted to break through 173 and pass 50 pounds down, but if it takes another week or two, that's fine.
  5. 12/2: 174.5. I survived Thanksgiving. Good prospects for continuing the glide path through the next three weeks at least. Tentatively hopeful to break through the 173 plateau and then continue on the path lower.
  6. 11/25: 177.5. Went off the rails two weeks ago and it didn't hurt too bad, but, a tough week to stay on track and I'm back up. Hopefully this week can be back to the plan, other than some carbs at one Thanksgiving meal, no reason to not stick to the plan.
  7. 11/18: 174.0. Not bad for a week off the rails but I'd love to resume the downward trend. This week isn't shaping up to be that great either so it might be a slog through this patch until the real work can start up in earnest again.
  8. Yeah I've gone completely off the rails this week and this weekend probably won't get better. Oh well.
  9. 11/11: 173.5. Well, at least it wasn't my every-other-week pattern where my weight goes up. Not unexpected at this point. Hopefully we see some more movement downward next week.
  10. Also, by 0.1%, I've officially gone from "overweight" to "normal" on the BMI chart.
  11. 11/4: 173.5. That's more like it. Feels like I beat Halloween. Got to enjoy some cake, cookies, ring-dings, candy, and other junk at the office party and still coming out ahead.
  12. 10/28: 177.5. Two steps forward, one step back appears to be my MO. I guess as long as the general trend is down, all is well.
  13. Yeah, what P-RGK said. Potato starch is a resistant starch, so it's not processed by the human body. It's only used by the "good" gut microbes (in theory) and helps keep them chugging along. At the worst I'm adding powder to my water that is passing straight through and doing no damage anyway, I figure.
  14. It's certainly a concern to be aware of. I'm not an expert, of course, but it seems the complaint is more about ill-informed carb-restricted diets, like if a person decides "I'm just going to eat steak and bacon and have 0 carbs and life will be awesome," like Otis does when he tries a new fad. The first link says the dieters need to work in lots of nuts and avocado, for example, which seems to be totally in line with actual keto. Personally, I've been trying to be more gut-bacteria friendly and have been having a heaping spoonful of potato starch stirred into water every day. Along with
