The only thing that isn't a trigger is sleeping; except for those times I wake up craving a cigarette.

BTW, 40 left.

Don't worry. She won't kill you. We will. But... would you please increase your life insurance first? She will need the money to keep me in the lifestyle to which I'd like to become accustomed.

Your are a lucky guy. She IS a beautiful woman! I hope you guys have a long and happy life together! But to play it safe, don't invite me over for dinner. 'Cuz once she sees the 'new thin me...'

My wife just ordered a Burka... for me!!! She ain't no fool.

We've decided not to sing 'Rudolf the Red-nosed Reindeer' any more. Do you realize just how badly poor Rudolf was bullied? And Santa stood by and did nothing for years, until one night he needed something from the poor reindeer (it was foggy, remember? Santa needed Rudolf's red nose to guide him) so he is nice to him for a change. I've lost a LOT of respect for Santa...

Why do you think I'm staying anonymous on the 'net? I still value life .

Any expectations that you might put weight back on over the festive period, or are you sticking to the diet? I'm still attempting to do a fast day today, but given that it is Christmas Eve, and we have guests over, I may have to suspend it by tonight when the nibbles and drinks come out. I'll be happy to make it through to the other side having gained back a couple of pounds.

No big meals planned. We had though about baking an apple pie as the Fuji apples are really good right now, but we forgot about it when we went food shopping the other day and didn't pick up the needed supplies. Dinner tonight will be a Chinese vegetable soup with tofu, and nothing special planned for Christmas Day foods. We'll probably just stop by for some sushi on one of our walks. My wife's family is all down in the southern island of Kyushu and they don't do anything special for Christmas any way. They are all Buddhist, although two of the nephews did have Christian weddings.

Christmas and New Year are sort of swapped around in Japan. Here, New Years is the time for family gatherings, while Christmas is the time for party. All the paired-up college kids and young unmarrieds will head for a Love Hotel for Christmas Eve. Older folks... it's just another night. New Years Day the families gather, but not for eating. They all go to a Shinto shrine to offer prayers for the new year; good school grades, success in business, finding a marriage partner, good health, etc. The prayers are very pragmatic and individual. Not much praying for peace or ending World Hunger. There are long lines at every shrine, people waiting to get to the front, throw some coins into the box, ring the bell to wake up the Kami (spirits) and make their prayers. Might have to stand in line for an hour or two at the bigger shrines, but most families will go to neighborhood ones. Some might go to Buddhist temples, but everyone knows that the Shinto shrines are more effective for this...

Oh man, I've suspended the IF two Fridays ago (when we had our office Xmas lunch, I felt it was my social duty to join in the overeating and the tequila) and I've put on about 1.5 kg already.
So, by the 7th January, when I plan to have my next fast day, I expect 2-3 kg more.

Mini rant: why the hell is it so hard to loose fat and it is so easy to gain it back? Our bodies need a redesign, I say it's high time for Human 2.0.

Ah well...
