Lettuce rejoice...

I'm told the institute will put me on a Medifast Diet which will include 6 ozs. of meat and 3 cups of salad each and every day. (Plus the Medifast stuff.)

Three cups of salad, eh?  I wonder how much lettuce I can compress into one cup. Maybe I could get a whole head of lettuce into 3 cups. Think?

In the beginning...

I'm starting a blog. Go figure. Soon I'm planning to leave on an adventure and perhaps some of my family, friends, parishioners, fans & non-fans (un-fans?) might have an interest in my progress.

The plan is to leave the parish on September 5, 2010, after the morning Masses and drive to St. Louis, Missouri, to participate in a program to lose weight and tackle some of my health issues.

It's a program of the St. Louis Behavioral Medicine Institute. They'll evaluate me and tailor the program to meet my individual needs -- at that point, perhaps I'll know how long I'll be away.
