The weight’s still coming off

Thankfully, 2013 has seen the reversal of the gradual but constant weight gain that has typified my recent history.  This morning’s weekly weigh-in confirmed the return of my weight to the same level as that recorded on 11th September 2011.  So, only twenty four pounds of weight loss until I reach my personal weight target. 😉


So what has been the secret of my weight loss this year?  Well, let me tell you.  I banned going to places such as McDonald’s and KFC.  I mean, it’s not real food, anyway!

Every Tuesday, I heat up some chicken quarter pounders and eat one in a bap.  And on a Friday, I have barbeque ribs, rice and sweetcorn.

Yep, that’s how you lose weight.  Forget the dodgy takeaway outlets and eat plenty of barbeque ribs.  Mmm!  Works for me.

Oh, and please excuse the really dodgy selfie that I took yesterday.  I’m not any good at that sort of thing and seemed to forget to smile.

From MyOpera to where?

‘Bye ‘bye, MyOpera.  For a few years MyOpera has been the place to be.  It was there that I posted into the World famous “Depressing Music, Dark Literature and Positive Thoughts”.  My elderly Honda Civic became an international star and I topped the Google searches for slot-o-bronze arcade machines.  It was there where I both blogged and enjoyed some very entertaining blogs from a group of witty and humourous people.  However, recent months has seen the MyOpera platform wane until the inevitable announcement came that Opera have given up on us.  They will shut MyOpera in March 2014.

Well, they can take our blogging platform…but not our souls (or something like that).

So, here is the initial post of my new blog.  Not very exciting yet as this first blog is not very much more than a place marker.  Hopefully, a few of my old buddies will find me on WordPress or Google+.  For the time being I will be publishing much the same thing on both platforms.  After that…we’ll see.
