Inveterate blogger Tony Pierce has acknowledged that his up-at-all-hours lifestyle isn’t conducive to a trim physique. He wants to lose 20 pounds through … well, no discernible plan, it would seem. He’s asking for suggestions.
With New Year’s resolution making and breaking already under way and another round of the show launching Monday, the post-holiday season is the time when people are the most motivated to make changes in exercise and diet.
Now, thanks to the Columbia Association, the somewhat overweight and the obese alike can forgo the vicarious satisfaction of watching others get healthy by getting themselves started on the road to physical fitness in a competition dubbed “The Biggest Winner.”

Cable channel A&E debuts “Heavy” on Jan. 17. The show follows 22 morbidly obese men and women who desperately want to shed pounds. They’re on a six-month program of serious diet and exercise, interspersed with lots of tears. The hook? These weight-challenged folks aren’t competing with their peers, and there’s no monetary prize attached.
Lindsay Lohan looked incredible Wednesday for her arraignment on a charge of felony grand theft.
She’s in trouble for something grand, and that’s how she was going to present herself: white dress, sleek hairdo, black shades, black shoes.
Her look said, “I’m not the type of person who steals necklaces from jewelry stores in Venice.”
The Scarsdale diet plan might actually be a healthy option, since you are not required to have the binge eating soups or even survive on lemonade and maple syrup. In contrast, this diet focus on the eating of vegetables, fruits and lean protein sources, whilst restricting calorie intake.
The diet guarantees that you’re going to lose one pound daily by just eating those food items. Additionally, this diet also supports the usage of natural appetite suppressants, artificial sweeteners, vegetables and fruits rich in fiber, lean beef, broiled chicken with no skin and fish.
Here is a diet combination:
This week, they weighed in at their one-year-later follow-up appointment.
Paris lost 133 pounds, and Donelle lost 187 pounds, for a combined total of 320 pounds.
With it, they reclaimed their lives.
“It was incredible. It was like a miracle for us,” said Paris, 47, of Newport News.
Working long hours, eating late and being inactive, the couple added pounds over the years. Paris weighed 337 and Donelle weighed 567 pounds when they underweight surgery Dec. 15, 2009, one right after the other, at Sentara CarePlex Hospital in Hampton.
It’s hard to start new habits, or break old ones. A person can only take so much discouragement.
In Jenny Ruano’s case, after countless resolutions to lose weight, she decided the best way to get unstuck was to do something drastic: gastric sleeve surgery.
At her heaviest, Ruano weighed 242 pounds. Overweight since she was a toddler, the 5-foot-1-inch-tall Kendall woman had failed at the gamut of fad diets. At restaurants, she could polish off an appetizer and two entrees. She never felt full.
In her late 20s, Ruano pushed hard to get the weight off, eating better and hitting the gym twice a day, she said.
PENSACOLA, Fla. – A proposed kidney transplant that won two Mississippi sisters their freedom from prison can’t take place until one quits smoking and they lose a combined 160 pounds.
Jamie and Gladys Scott had served nearly 16 years of their life sentences for an armed robbery when they were released from a sprawling prison in central Mississippi on Jan. 7. Gov. Haley Barbour granted Jamie Scott an early release because she suffers from kidney failure, but he agreed to let Gladys Scott go on the condition she follow through on an offer to donate a kidney to her sister.
There are diet fads, diet pills, products, and strict protocols that will help you lose weight quickly — and then gain it back twice as fast. We develop relationships with food over the course of our lives, and many turn into addictions and routines. What we eat, when we eat, how much we eat, how we eat and why we eat are really the magical missing pieces of the weight-loss puzzle. If we’re not aware of these questions and answers, then no diet, weight loss routine, or supplement will ever work.
