No, this isn't a picture of me. It is necessary
for me to weigh myself now at the UPS shipping
center, on their freight scales.
What are these brightly colored things? I've been
told they could help me lose weight...
type of woman who tell me to "buzz off"
on a daily basis.
Well, folks, my Quest
for 320 (pounds, that is) took an ugly turn for the worse
I started the quest on June first weighing in at 355 (at the
local UPS shipping center, on their freight scales, as our
bathroom scale only go up to 300 lbs.) and feeling pretty
stinkin' good about making some progress. Man, I have never
been so wrong.
I just got back from the UPS center for my end of June weigh-in,
and I registered a staggering, Earth-Axis altering 362
lbs. Yikes! A gain of 7 lbs. in one short month!
So, how do I explain this all away and make myself seem less
of a loser than I really am???
I'll blame it on my friends.
My friend Billy-Bob comes over a lot in the afternoons to
watch All My Children on the picturebox. We usually have lunch
during this time. Billy-Bob is not on a diet and always brings
over pork rinds, nuts, ice cream, or some kind of snack.
The first few days I was able to resist the temptation. After
a few days, though, he started to beat me down some. "Oh
come on, Buck, what's a little incy-weensie bowl of ice cream
gonna hurt?" Soon, I began to see his logic, through
glasses tinted by my maniacal feeding frenzy.
Soon, I was allowing myself such indulgences
almost every day. Besides, I'm far less cranky after polishing
off a few bowls of ice cream. Hey, some people have their
Zanax, I have my ice cream. Go ahead and hang me!
Well, my march towards morbid obesity (as this whole charade
is looking more like every day) was certainly not the fault
of the Glutenfreeda
Recipe Archives. Under the Low
Fat section, Mom has continued to make me some awesome
low fat fare (her diet, contrary to my results thusfar, have
been excellent...way to go, Ma!). Here are a few that I really

You just can't beat steak (unless it's pork!)
You just can't beat pork...really, this time!
Well, Mom has cut up some celery stalks
and put them out for snacks, I'll let you know next month
if I was able to eat them without peanut butter and ranch
It's 320 or 400 lbs. at this point. Which way will it go?
Help me Pam Brooks!

you have any feedback for Buck, you may e-mail him at
this address. Please allow a certain amount of time for
Buck to respond, as he does not own a computer of his own
and has to share his e-mail with his mother (whom he lives
with). She spends 90% of her waking moments on a scrapbooking
chat group, along with other support groups that deal with
issues involved when your children RETURN home in their 30's.
