Achievement unlocked: Lose 130 lbs.

July 2016 starting weight: 355 lbs (161.4kg)

Goal weight: 220 lbs (100kg)

July 2019 weight: 219 lbs (99.6 kg)

———————————————-

Total weight lost: 136 lbs (61.8 kg)

Thank G-d for small miracles and for helping me keep all of that extra poundage off for the past 3.5 years. For the record, appetite control and physical activity are a lot easier on the system than a banded stomach or a foreshortened intestine.

The Highest Standard

My favorite kind of eatery is one where I get both protein and spiritual fulfillment.

Jeff’s Gourmet Sausage in LA is a longtime favorite, and with Aaron settled on the West Side, I’m looking forward to more regular visits.

Everything is Glatt Kosher and amazing, but my personal favorites are the Italian beef sausage, the Polish, and the Spicy Chicken Apple.

Good Shabbos!

When in Portland, Eat Elk

 

Three years later, I am still thinking about this elk burger (with avocado instead of cheese) I enjoyed at the taproom of Deschutes Brewery in Portland.

I just checked. The restaurant made it through COVID, is still open, and the elk burger is still on the menu.

I’m thinking “road trip.”
