@max: but I have a huge problem in the form "lack of willpower + love of beer/bacon" (sad face)

Research tells us(seroiusly) that willpower grows stronger from food. So maybe you just haven't eaten enough ?

@Betajet: The doctor says: "How's your love life?"  The man says: "Don't know, I'm 140 miles from home".

LOL

That's like the one that goes: "Don't criticize a man until you've walked a mile in his shoes -- at which time you can say what you want because (a) you're a mile away and (b) you're wearing his shoes" :-)

@Max...the more beers the froth is blown off, the taller the stories will probably get.  But that's what beer is for :-)

@Max...."...(my mind is going)..."  You sound like HAL in 2001.    But I can tell you, it gets worse as you get older.....  pore over that!   (Poor you....you better pour a beer!)

Please let me know the author and if possible the ISBN for that book.  I have a book voucher which needs using, and a tame bookshop lady who can get me anything I want, so that sounds like a worthy use for it (the voucher I mean...and also the bookshop lady I suppose :-)

Try getting more exercise -- that's much better than trying to diet.  I've heard that dieting alone often causes your digestion to slow down to absorb less food more efficiently, so you're not getting anywhere.

Here's Henny Youngman's take on the topic (from memory):

A man is having trouble with his love life.  He goes to see his doctor.  The doctor says: "You've got to lose 20 pounds: run 10 miles a day, call me back in two weeks."

Two weeks later the man calls back: "Doc, I've been running 10 miles a day.  I've lost 20 pounds.  I feel terrific."

The doctor says: "How's your love life?"  The man says: "Don't know, I'm 140 miles from home".

@betajet: Whenever I see B sprouts on the stalk I think of alien "pods" from a 1950s science fiction movie...

They do look a little alien -- maybe life on Earth really was seeded from Mars -- it really makes you wonder what life looks like on alien worlds...

@Elizabeth: A couple years ago I lost 30 lb over about 7 months [...] I've mostly maintainded the weight although it's started back up [...]

It's amazing how easy it is to gain weight, and how hard it is to lose it... (sad face).

I used to worry that beer was making me fat -- but I've found that after a couple of beers I don't worry as much LOL
