What exactly do people measure as 'excess weight'? Isn't that kind of a fluid thing? Because sometimes I see people's heights and weights, and their 'goal' weight, and they are much higher than I would expect (and a few much lower).

So my second job is a Realtor...

So, I'm a big fat chicken about giving blood to begin with... I do it mostly because I'm such a chicken (facing my fears or some stupid shit like that), and because I know it's something more of us should do - and this time I get two free tickets to th

So today I went to my annual Realtor's awards banquet. There were 3 chairs all next to each other, and I picked the middle one, which meant empty seats on both sides.
