...I did not struggle with weight growing up, but after getting married and having five kids, I had moved solidly into the "overweight" population. In 2006 I was able to lose the extra pounds (50 of them) and get to goal. But staying there, that is another story. Slow but steady, the weight has crept back on over the years.

Pinette. Funny & Farewell
Have you heard of the comedian John Pinette? I was sad on Sunday when I heard the news that he had been found dead in his hotel room on Saturday. He had always struggled with weight, health problems, and as many celebrities do, other demons (drug issues I believe). As far as making us laugh though, he was a family favorite. Pretty clean... enough that I'd let my teenagers listen to his stuff. Because of his size, many of his bits focused on food and fitness. In memory of John Pinette, I thought I'd share a few of our favorite funnies.
In this clip he talks about going to the gym. His trainer tells him to do a sit up.
He says "I don't do ups. Ups defy gravity. Gravity is a law. I obey the law."
Lots of funny stuff.
Here he talks about going to see a nutritionist (or two, or three),
and attempting to follow their directives.
Here's a quick look at going gluten-free (not by choice).
Celiacs runs in our family, so this hits home.
