The lesson I learned when losing weight a few years ago is to start exercising early, even if you can't do that much (pushups at 285 lbs are harder than at 220!). But the old adage 'the best time to...

NOTE2: Almost forgot - if you jump full on in from high-carb to hardcore low-carb, you may have an acute gout attack. It sucks. It happened to me in 2015 and again this year. Maybe...

I lost 60 pounds in 2015 doing 'lazy low carb' (285 to 225 at 6'). More 50g carbs than sub-20g. The satiety aspect is the huge one for me. I lost 2 lb a week like clockwork. Limit carbs to sub-50g,...

1.e4 e5 2.f4 Nc6 3.Nf3 f5?! has been my go-to for over a decade. White has to switch gears and play more passively (in which case he has a great game) or he ends up giving black attacking chances.

I almost always splurge for the extra $30 or so for extra leg room. I hate how cramped airplane seats are.

I will never understand this logic.

Team A gets several blown calls in their favor, but team B made mistakes, so the outcome is A-OK.

Lose 100 lbs. Ok, that may be a 2019-20 goal, but it's theoretically doable in 1 year (2 lb a week average).
