Last Day

Thank you for the kind words and well-wishes those who gave them.

I had to put on comment moderation for this blog, because someone spoofed my Google ID and was posting comments impersonating me. One bad apple spoils the whole bushel.

When I began this blog I thought I could keep up with it and my day job while shooting a documentary several hours a day. As you can tell by the lack of blog entries, I couldn't do it all. I could either finish the book I had under contract, or keep posting videos and blog entries. Obviously I had to write the book, as that's how I earn a living. Blogging doesn't pay the bills.

We've got well over a hundred hours of footage, and I think it can be cut into an interesting documentary. It's going to be a lot of work, but I hope to have something screenable soon.

I just had my last blood test today, and I should know the results on Thursday.

I haven't weighed myself in over a week, so I don't know how much I've lost. I'm doing a final weigh-in tomorrow. I'm still under the deadline gun, but I'll try to post some before-and-after shots very soon. Thanks for following this crazy experiment, and thanks for your patience.


  1. Joe, congrats on making it through what had to be quite a grueling month! At least you got to drink alot of good brews :-)

    Best of luck in wrapping up the documentary--looking forward to it.

    All the best.

  2. I am just glad you are walking about and able to be busy. Thanks for letting us know. You have been in our prayers and will continue to be. Please take excellent conscious care of yourself... before the fact, hard I know, but well worth it Joe.

  3. Dear Joe:

    I'm so glad you're still here.
