I want a colonoscopy for Christmas, which Weird Al never sang but totally should have!

Hey, everyone! As you may recall (or as you may not know, if you don't know me personally, which is a lot of you, so hi! Thanks for stopping by!), I work part-time for a transcription company, where I create audio tests for new transcribers. Thought you might get a kick out of reading a … Continue reading I want a colonoscopy for Christmas, which Weird Al never sang but totally should have!


Oh well, at least fat isn’t contagious!

This will be short - I'm running late! Sorry to report this, but my weight is UP a bit, to: 198.8 Still, there's one thought that gives me relief: I'm not contagious - so I can't cause grief, like, oh, I dunno ... (Sorry for the short post -- hope you have a great week!)

Happy Birthday, Donna Lehman Krum!

Hey, guess what today is? That's right, folks, it's DONNA LEHMAN KRUM'S BIRTHDAY! And just who is Donna Lehman Krum, you ask? Well, good question! Here's the answer: she's one of my cousins (at least I *think* she is -- I'm still not 100% sure what the actual cousin-ography line of succession is on that … Continue reading Happy Birthday, Donna Lehman Krum!

Best way to lose weight? Wait, wait!

So this morning, at around 6:30, I get up to let the cats out (for the first time). Actually, just one cat, Buddy, the Big Guy. He likes to go out and let the other cats in the neighborhood know, as early as possible, that our yard is HIS yard, and visitors will not be … Continue reading Best way to lose weight? Wait, wait!

Post-Vacay Rainy Day Weigh!

Welcome back, everyone! Time for my post-Thanksgiving weigh-in -- ready? Let's go for it! 192.0 Hey, up a little, but just a scosche! That's pretty good, all things considered. I mean, it was Thanksgiving, and as usual, I did indulge a bit over the long holiday/road trip! Oh well, that's OK! I'm getting back on … Continue reading Post-Vacay Rainy Day Weigh!

Whether dieting or “Jesus-ing,” stick with the basics!

Welp, yet another small but HISTORICALLY significant gain this week -- but some theological AND diet wisdom to go along with it! First, the annoying news: 190.4 Yep, that's right, as of today's weigh-in, I'm no longer 50 pounds down!! Thus, I'll either have to rename the blog ("50 by 61?" "50 by 62?") OR … Continue reading Whether dieting or “Jesus-ing,” stick with the basics!

Memento mori, so pass the Doritos!

First of all, excuse me if this post makes it sound like I'm depressed or something. Far from it - I'm actually enjoying our beautiful, mild fall weather here in sunny Southern California! But every once in a while, I do wax philosophic! And during the last couple of weeks, Mr. 50by60 and I have … Continue reading Memento mori, so pass the Doritos!

Hikin’ up ol’ Treadmill Hill!

Well, good morning, nieces and nephews out in Internetland! Yup, Aunt 50by60's back with another snooze-inducing weigh-in! 189.4 As you can see, things haven't changed around here too much in the last few [checks calendar] months, weight-wise anyway. But take heart! Thanks to the inspiration of a dedicated Pacific Crest Trail thru-hiker named Jeff, who … Continue reading Hikin’ up ol’ Treadmill Hill!

Eau deer … another gain!

Yeah, the weight's not really looking too good this week: 189.2 Drat! Well, to be honest, I haven't really been following through on the advice I keep giving all of YOU nice folks! In fact, I've been doing the opposite - NOT counting my calories, NOT exercising as much as I need to, etc. I … Continue reading Eau deer … another gain!
