I'm on my travels again on Sunday night, this time to Mozambique for a month or so. After that, I'm not sure, but South Korea and Ecuador are possibilities. I've been at home for around four months, and my weight has remained pretty steady ... Read more

Today I set out on my journey to Mesa. It was cold in Calgary this morning, and it's cold in Idaho, where I am now. It seems I left Calagry just in time, as the city had lots more snow today. LOL! Sorry Calgarians, but I'm happy to be... Read more

Made it back to Calgary after a very long flight from Dubai, then a connecting flight to Calgary from Toronto. It's a bit chilly here, but it's also great to be home. I'm about to enjoy my first poached eggs in four months. Yummy! ... Read more

I think winter is upon us! We actually had rain during the night and some more today, and the tops of the mountains are covered in snow. I think there is more to come. It has really cooled down over here, no more mid-40C temperatures ... Read more

I've been telling a couple of new co-workers how much weight I've lost over the last ten months or so. They didn't believe I ever weighed as much as I claimed, until I showed them my photographs from last year. Now they believe, but at the ... Read more

A rather long week really, as I've worked 13 days straight, but looking forward to a day off on the 23rd, then back at it for another 13 days. Hopefully I drop a pound or two when I weigh in this coming week. I've walked miles, and drunk li... Read more

With one week under my belt things are going quite well. I've been doing lots of walking on the job, so plenty of free exercise, and I'm drinking a great deal of water. I also seem to have a handle on my diet, and dropped a couple of pounds... Read more

Arrived here a few days ago. It's very hot, very dusty, with sand blowing everywhere. On the upside, I'm getting lots of exercise, and drinking lots of water, so hopefully the pounds will begin to fall off again.... Read more

Into Dubai Saturday night local time. Phew, if nothing else the temperature should help me lose a few lb! Another two days and I'm off overseas. Despite a few indulgences during my last few days at home, my weight has remained pretty stead... Read more
