When Scales Fly

photo of Koko leaning over the side of his scratching postToday I had my annual physical. I was very apprehensive about what my weight would be, since the scale I am using is a piece of...Anyway, I step on the scale and am told that I weigh 236.4 pounds. I took a look at my chart and they had me at a starting weight of 298. The scale that I am using at home had me at 276. So, I have lost about 15 more pounds than I thought. That's it! My scale may not be accurate any more, but it will still fly nicely out the window! The point of this wordiness is to say that the doctor came in and congratulated me on losing 62 pounds of fat since last August.

So, I come home and celebrate with a huge cheese pizza from Chicago Connection (you don't need to ask for extra cheese on these babies). No, I was good and made spaghetti (using the sauce I made a few weeks ago) for my family and I stuck with my usual frozen dinner; 240 calories of pure bleah. Actually, it's not that bad, I would just like to break down and have some real food sometimes.

Well, it's time for me to go, I need to teach myself how to do Time, Rate, and Distance calculations. I have no problem teaching and doing the actual equations, it is setting-up the equations (from the word problems) that I am having problems with. Have a great day and wish me luck as I delve into the wild world of Algebra.


  1. congrats on weight loss and good luck with algebra!! =)

  2. Congrats on the weight loss!

    Ugh on the Algebra. Whenever I have to help my oldest with math I have to quick relearn how to do stuff online. Thank goodness for the internet.

  3. Great job on the weight loss. Too bad they can't make something better than 240 calories of pure bleah!

  4. Congrats on your weight loss. What a nice surprise. That pizza sounds very good . . . Algebra word problems, not so good!

  5. Congratulations on your weight loss!

  6. Congratulations on the weight loss! As to the algebra... that's why I married the Tour Manager. He does all math in this house.

  7. Wendy Lopez-Redaon: Thank you. I'm having my wife help them with the word problems:)

    Gandalf and Grayson: Thank you very much:-)

    Your Fun Family: Its the word problems that get me every time. I have never been good at them, I guess because they require a different thought process??

    Furkidsmom: Thank you. When I first started eating those, they were great, but it gets old after a while. They need to come up with some new meals:)

    Karen & Gerard Zemek: Thank you. The pizza is the best I have had; it's greasy and cheesy...to bad I can't have any for a while:(

    Dori: Thank you very much:-)

    Susan Helene Gottfried:Thank you. I know what you mean, I'm having my wife explain that part. I hate word problems...they require too much thought:)

  8. Wow! Congratulations on the weight loss! How fantastic! I would think a happy dance would burn enough calories to have a slice of pizza!

  9. That's fantastic about the weight loss - congratulations!!!
