    Great story M.D. it reminds again of one of my favorite quotes, “You can have what you want or the reasons why not!” It also speaks to one of my pet-peeves, using the word “diet” to imply a “temporary” change in eating habits, I think that is why most “diets” are unsuccessful, people go into them with the mindset that this is temporary and I can do this for 6,8,10, or 12 weeks, problem is you go back to your hold habits and guess what? Well you all know the answer to that. “Lifestyle change” might be a better word to replace dieting…just my two-cents!

    Post Script: That roller-coaster is sick-ill! WTF? …an engineering marvel in it’s own right!…….:)

    I thought the same thing about the ‘diet’ idea, JJ. It’s like you set yourself up for a bait-n-switch. Better just to admit up front you’ve got issues and change them for good.

    p.s. At Six Flags this past Friday, there was a heavyset guy who had to have two employees pushing down on the harnass to snap it. Sad!!!! His kids were as big as he was. Sadder!!
    p.p.s. I think the Kingda Ka puts this coaster to shame. Just watching this made me nauseous all over again.
    p.p.s. Who knew the CF blogger was scouting for material at Six Flags?
