Post-trip report

The trip to Europe (Amsterdam, Munich, and Prague) went fantastic. With the exception of the day in Prague, the weather was blue skies and sunny. We spent many hours walking Amsterdam and sight-seeing in the Central Ring area. We also made it out of to the country-side the last day in Amsterdam and saw perhaps […]

My son Brett, 52 pounds lost in 5 months(click for larger photo)

Starting at the beginning of the year, my son decided he was going to follow my lead and start low carbing. He had all the standard questions — what could eat, drink, how was he going to do this at school, and […]


As December comes to close, I just wanted to wish all my followers a Merry Christmas, and I hope your New Year will be blessed with many riches of good health, family, and joy.

Done with Training – on with Server tasks

Today marked the third full week that I made it back from training. A lot has happened in that three weeks, such as a pipe letting go ruining the hardwood floors in my kitchen and dining room and my old computer finally giving up the ghost. I have since replaced the computer with a new […]

Back from vacation

We just got back from vacation to St Louis. The purpose of the trip was to go to Six Flags since the kids missed out on the trip to Orlando and Unviersal Studios earlier this year. Well you know what they say about the best plans of mice and men, the kids were the kryptonite […]

Family and Atkins

Reposted from my ADBB forum post about how your family can react and perceive you under Atkins:
