Impacted

Upon returning from Milwaukee I discovered I had gained eight pounds there.

My first day back I downed a lot of greens. Because when I began to think about it, I realized that the only green vegetables I ate on my trip were the pickles that were placed on the sides of my plates. It's not that I avoided them. I just don't remember seeing anyone with a salad.

I don't want to sound gross (Who am I kidding?) but by the next morning I had "dropped" four pounds.

Querido Jorge... Muito engraçado seu post! É uma pessoa com um ótimo bom humor! Admiro quem é assim... Aqui no Brazil nem imagina como Lost é popular, tem uma rede de relacionamento chamada "Orkut", que tem várias comunidades em sua homenagem! Todos tem uma enorme admiração por você! Se puder uma hora entre lá e veja, é esse o link: www.orkut.com Tem que fazer um rapido cadastro... Beijos e parabéns por sucesso! =)

That's not too bad considering that you were in Wisconsin...with all of that cheese.

I'm off to lose a few pounds, now.

Cheers!

Wakala!!!!! yes that's gross....
But I understand u. I just found ur blog in the Latina magazine. It's great you have this. So I am imagining you are latino and speak spanish right???

SeannyD said...

First of all, you were absolutely phenomenal in your episode last Thursday. Your range from elation to sheer devastation was nothing short of brilliant, so thank you for that wonderful entertainment.

Secondly, good idea to work on those green leafies. Not that it bothers me that you're a bigger guy, I just want to see more from you long after Lost is over. And rumor has it health can get in the way of that. And I didn't find your post gross at all.

Keep up the awesome work, and hope to see more of it sooner rather than later.

(Please end, evil strike.)

It was the butter wasn't it?

Capmaster said...

So you're a little "fluffy" .....so what?

Loca xq (el mundo me hizo a)sí said...

don't worry... that kind of things happens... I always come back with 2 kg (don't know how many pounds are and don't want to look for a conversion table right now) every time I have vacations...

lauawill said...

Dude. I've lived in Milwaukee for almost 15 years. Just think about THOSE pounds adding up.

Glad you enjoyed your visit to some of our hallowed institutions: Kopp's, Solly's, the Apple Holler, Mars Cheese. Sorry you missed the Sprecher tour, though. Next time! We'll be on the lookout for you!

kookiejar said...

So, after doing the math, you only gained 4 pounds! In Wisconsin! That's a 'win' on your score sheet. :D

Miss T said...

Holy rabbit food! Um, but after reading the butter burger revelations, no wonder. Jorge, how do YOU spell relief? L-E-T-T-U-C-E! (me too).

Love your blog. Keeps me in stiches constantly.

Cheers!

"I don't want to sound gross"

Of course not!

Jorge,

I am doing "husband's weight watchers" which is that I follow weight watchers except when my wife isn't around. I am a "foodie" and often stop myself from asking you about Hawaiian food because, over all, I don't think it's fair to talk to you and think "food." In fact I think it's stereotypical.

However I'm going to toss this out there: I stopped eating all meat except seafood and focus on high-fiber vegetables primarily. Imagine the bounty of Hawaii without the spam? The weight watchers concept of "points" and "Zero point foods" is really killer and someone of your size probably qualifies for 30+ points a day so no loss of big old burgers, just one big old burger for lunch and for dinner a massive stir fry. I'm just sayin... ya got Ethan Suplee in the Butterfly Effect at 300+ and Ethan Suplee in My Name is Earl at about 260. He's still the same person inside and still can do the same roles. I went from 220 to 200 and I'm still neither small, nor a different person.

One of the triathlons I do is right near the cheese castle. We always stop there on the way home and get tons of yummy stuff to undermine the healthy thing we did by doing the triathlon. I always seem to end up gaining weight on tirathlon weekends.

Orel said...

Hi, Jorge!

Excuse my english level.

I'm a Spanish guy who likes a lot your character (Hugo, Hurley) at LOST.

I see that you tasted root beer... Do you know the videogame "The Secret of Monkey Island"?
I love it, and the root beer is very important on that game.

It's very "freak" to see you with the root beer (in Spain we don't know that drink).

Don't worry about dropping pounds... 8 pounds is not too much. Only a few weeks of normal regime and it will be fixed.

( Do you speak spanish? )

Congratulations for your blog!!!
Bye!

TMI! TMI!

Megan Elisabeth said...

My mom and I are obsessed with LOST and you have always been one of our favorites. Then she found your blog and freaked out. We both grew up in Milwaukee but the family moved to Baton Rouge in 2002-2004. So reading your blog made us both teary-eyed. Neither of us have been back for a visit since we left! The only thing you missed was a trip to Miller Park. And ComedySportz (great comedy club I worked at in high school). Thank you for the EXCELLENT BLOG!! You've made my day!

Anna G said...

Gee...only 8 pounds? couldn't be the hamburger smothered in butter and suasages made to look like beer bottles?...no,surely not.

Seriously though...8 pounds just means that much more for us fans to love!

rebafallawake said...

Rocky (Racquel) said...

LOL gross, but funny :-)

Chase Squires said...

So I just had a thought, next red carpet-type event you head to, you need to pull up in a blue and while VW van ...

I know, I have these great thoughts all the time, weird, isn't it! :-)

gdahimself said...

The amazing relationship we have food. We tend to eat what like more than what should with a propensity for indulgence.

My and too many people's health would benefit by being about fifty pounds less.

I, one of the guilty, should be eating a greater variety of foods for a more balanced array of minerials & nutriments, and in more modest amounts.

But not all the time that would boring.

sneakers shoes She continued,
"Why...? Don't you need someone to pose as your girlfriend this year?" Then he answered, "No, there is no need for that anymore......"
Before he can continue, he was interrupted, discount nike shoes"Oh yes! Must have found a girlfriend! nike shox r4 You haven't been searching for one for the past years, right?" The man looked up, as if he has struck gold, his face beamed and looked directly at the drunken girl. tn dollarHe replied, "Yes......you are right! I haven't been looking for anyone for the past years."
With that, the man darted across the floor and out the door, cheap nike shoesleaving the lady in much bewilderment. He finally realized that he has already found his dream girl, and she was.....the Vancouver girl all along! The drunken lady has said something that awoken him.
All along he has found his girl.nike tennis shoes That was why he did not bother to look further when he realized she was not coming back. It was not any specific girl he was seeking! cheap nike shoxIt was perfection that he wanted, and yes.....perfection!!
Relationship is something both parties should work on. Realizing that he had let away someone so important in his life, he decided to call her immediately. His whole mind was flooded with fear.free shipping shoes He was afraid that she might have found someone new or no longer had the same feelings anymore..... For once, he felt the fear of losing someone.
As it was Christmas eve, the line was quite hard to get through, especially an overseas call. He tried again and again, never giving up. Finally, he got through......precisely at 1200 midnight. He confessed his love for her and the girl was moved to tears. nike shoes It seemed that she never got over him! Even after so long, she was still waiting for him, never giving up.
He was so excited to meet her and to begin his new chapter of their lives. He decided to fly to Vancouver to join her. It was the happiest time of their lives! nike discount shoes But their happy time was short-lived. Two days before he was supposed to fly to Vancouver,cheap puma shoes he received a call from her father. She had a head-on car collision with a drunken driver. nike shox shoes She passed away after 6 hours in a coma.
The guy was devastated, as it was a complete loss. Why did fate played such cruel games with him? He cursed the heaven for taking her away from him, denying even one last look at her! How cruel he cursed! How he damned the Gods...!!nike free shoes How he hated himself....for taking so long to realize his mistake!! That was in 1996.
The moral of this story is :
Treasure what you have...
Time is too slow for those who wait;
Too swift for those who fear;
Too long for those who grief;
Too short for those who rejoice;
But for those who love...
Time is Eternity.
For all you out there with someone special in your heart, cherish that person, cherish every moment that you spend together that special someone, for in life, anything can happen anytime. buy shoes onlineYou may painfully regret, only to realise that it is too late.
