It's been a month since we started our bet and I have lost 10 lbs now. Yeah I know that muscle weighs more than fat, but I'm not really doing this to build muscle, I'm doing it to lose any trace of a gut. Beer guts are just so freakin' gross.
I visited Lisa last weekend and we went to her grandparent's 45th anniversary party. It was pretty cool, about 50 of her relatives there (a fertile bunch) and a lot of food and good times.
Anyway, I was talking to one of her uncles and he asked if he could wear a bear suit, so I guess word has gotten out. That would also explain the strange looks her aunts were giving me last night. I assume they are jealous because they didn't think to dress up like forest creatures for their hitchin' ceremonies.
The weather today is crap, and I'm glad I am not flying. The winds here are easily 70km/hour with torrential rain and low clouds. That's one thing about corporate flying that I enjoy - Averaging 300 hours a year, I really don't fly a whole lot, so if we have a bad-weather day, odds are I'm not going to be flying anyway.
Here's a METAR from Hamilton, about 30 miles away. I don't know a site where I can find old METAR info for airports, so I don't have one for Toronto.

To those of you who aren't pilots, it says the wind was gusting to 100km/hour. Ugh.
Lots of flying next week, so I'm gonna relax for the weekend with some Chinese food and a couple of good dvds.
