    Brother Tex, thought I would give Ron a break and hijack your thread. I ask for forgiveness up front. 
    With that said and aside, I went on eating binge tonight as a treat for finally getting home from offshore. 
    I got it started with a cup of seafood gumbo and shrimp bisque. Couldn’t decide which I wanted so I said what the fukk and got both. 

    Next I got a 2 pound order of ribeye cheese fries. That’s not a typo, ribeye, fries, cheese and gravy on the side. Simply magnificent. 

    For the main course, I thought why not. I went with the seafood platter. Soft shell crabs, shrimp, oysters, fish and hush puppies.

    Brother Tex, thanks for the welcome back. It’s certainly good to be home my friend. And that offer on the cow head still stands until next Friday. If you or someone else don’t want it, I’m going to cook it on Grim Guys Vault. 

    Now that is a meal. That would take me all weekend to eat :)

    Excellent! Thank you for posting.

    For anyone interested in more of Sir Paul, here's a great interview at Rollins College in Florida. Done by a former US Poet Laureate, Billy Collins. 2014, I think.

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    Man. That was amazing. Loved every second.

    I had the pleasure pf seeing Paul at Wrigley Field in Chicago when we lived there. Fantastic show.

    Two years ago, while we were vacationing in St Barths at Christmas, he and his family sat at the table next to us. It was so cool to hear him just conversing with his wife and step kids in "that voice". 

    Nobody bothered him at all.

    I'm a huge fan.

    Thanks, @The Cen-Tex Smoker

    Unfortunately my fighting days are behind me, but yeah I have dropped 54 pounds. In the pic I posted above, I’m exactly 200 pounds with a 35 inch waist. Down from 254 and a 46 inch waist. 
    A comparison, me 8 months ago at 254. 

    Me now at 200. 

    My goal is to get down to 185. 
    You look 10 years younger! Awesome.

    So you're cutting back to only 10 pounds of food per meal?

    You look 10 years younger! Awesome. 
    Thanks brother Tex. I don’t know if I look any younger or not, but I certainly appreciate the compliment just the same.  Dropping the weight has helped my knees considerably. I was honestly starting to have a lot of trouble getting around. If I can get down to my goal of 185 I’m going to have both my knees replaced. I figure it was a waste of money as long as I was real heavy.

    Get down to 185 and you might not need to have your knees replaced. Good on you man, it isn't easy. Before I dropped a few lbs, my knees and joints ached all the time. Now, not so much anymore.

    Thank you brother D. But it wouldn’t matter if I got down to 100 pounds, sadly the knees are gone. Been having trouble with them for about 7 years now. They are so bad now that I can’t hardly deal with it. That’s what finally pushed me to lose the weight and then have the surgery.

    Should never have kicked us out in the first place, things were so much better when we were in charge. After brexit, I'm sure we could be pursuaded to run your country for you, for a small fee of course.

    So you're cutting back to only 10 pounds of food per meal?
    I have definitely dialed it back. Not so much how much I eat, but more on the side of what I eat and drink. I still eat a large volume of food, but not so much of the horrid crap that I use to eat. 
    Here is an example, I went to Gollotts just now and started with a nice salad. I use to never eat salad but I finally found a salad that appeals to me 
    Bacon and ribeye salad:

    Next I ate a heathy appetizer of Shrimp bisque, something small instead of my usual fare:

    Next I had only 1 pound of Royal Reds. There was a time that 1 pound would of been an insult to me. 

    For the main course I dialed down to a soft shell crab plate instead of a seafood platter. 

    The only cheat that I did was treat myself to the ribeye fries again with cheese and gravy. Couldn’t resist =)


    So with all that said, I still eat a large volume compared to most people. However all the above use to be just a starter for me. I have cut my volume at least in half. Also I cut out all coke and sodas across the board. So far it seems to be working pretty good.
