And now I have sprayed single malt all over my moustaches, beard and keyboard..
Near naked ?
Looked entirely naked to me..anonymous..but "butt" naked..
We may not be thinking ( mind bleach ) about the same thread though.. Which "Jeff" are we referring to..?

The only thread I know of that Jeff (JLS) talks about some cutie sending him weight loss pictures, this one.  I didn't see mention of any completely naked pictures.

Not wanting to toss further pics to the mix- JLS has a good goal and his *motivation... Risque can be quite the motivator- but there again- its all a matter of perception!

Took the pics- will hold off posting as the maritime rescue team will try to hose me down and keep me wet till they can get me off-shore... 

Go BikerMutt! JLS- you got some competition!

If you want to do a 90 day challenge let me know- Im in for it

What the .. ?@!@$#@!

iN A search for recipes, I found a bunch of folks supposedly sharing what they eat to stay healthy.  One gal (or according to this thread, perhaps one them DUDES who says its a girl?@!) records her weight loss "progress" .. in TENTHS OF A POUND.  What is that? I got a drink of water, better hit the scales ... :o

My scale is not that good. I weigh in once or twice a week. The body is a weird machine. Weight fluctuates all throughout the day.

When I weigh in it is first thing when I wake up after taking a leak.

Even just an hour later will show an extra pound or two.

You're lucky. Our medics have gone metric, I don't know if I am 280 pounds or 16 litres :crazy:

I really don't like waist measurements in millimeters (25.4 x the number of inches) it may be accurate, but its scary big numbers.

Why would you measure in 1/10 of a lb, which is 45.3 grams.

Wow she is checking off 0.035% of my bodyweight (that is 1 / 2857).

If I could shed that per week, it would take 15 years losing that amount per week to get to my (still overweight) target weight.

I reckon I could do that in half the time, at 1/5 pound per week.

ps happy to PM picture of me in a mankini to scare youall into not using a computer anymore.:jawdropper:

Maybe that's her exercise plan.. step on the scale, step off the scale, step on the scale... :o 

* Women :rolleyes2: SO concerned about what the scale says.  Unless I'm scheduled for a weigh in for the prize fight - which isn't likely - I aint concerned with a few lbs one way or the other.

 

* Note it's not just women, either.  Men have those "vanity size" clothes too.  Hey, Jeff - I need a 32 belt. Sure ya do ...

A really good friend wanted a 34 belt, I gently suggested maybe a bit more... and sent 2 ways to measure.

Came back with 34.. so I made it. He tried it on and has asked for a 37.

When I suggested he measured wrongly he said 'well that is my jeans size!'

Belt was a gift for Xmas so I needed to remake and then sell the original.

Sheesh

I fight that same battle every day. You give them seven ways to accurately size a belt, over two or three emails, and they come back with something totally off the wall. I really do try to make it simple, but the the ability to reason and follow simple directions escapes many people.

I salute the good effort and especially the fact you didn't take you picture in the toilet. Sometimes I wonder how far have we gone as a society when women try to be attractive by taking pictures in the toilet?!?

Just went through this with a customer.  Could NOT get it through her head that simply giving me the jeans size is not a reliable measurement to make a belt that fits. . .a name belt no less.  Sometimes I wonder what it's like in other people's heads??

Boy, do I know that one!  I offer a "template" belt, made from teh same thickness of leather the "real" one will be made from.  I sewed it with half a dozen colors of various threads, at 5, 6, 7, and 8 stitches per inch.  SURELY you can pick one you like from that.. since you can see the ACTUAL THREAD that will be used.

People didn't want to return it, so I started charging $10.  That doesn't pay for the leather, much less the shipping (shipping is $8.20 now) but it does tend to weed out some of the "talkers".  Deal is, you pay $10 for the measuring "tape", and when you order the belt I"ll take the $10 off the price of the new belt.  So I'm still out $20 (leather and shipping) and a bit of time, but it's clear the belt size you want.

Never had one order the wrong size since I started that.  But I HAVE had people say "no, no - not necessary, I understand you don't take returns on tooled belts and THAT IS THE SIZE I want".  Then, on TWO occasions, someone who REFUSED to take the "measure" belt then contacted me to say the belt they ordered didn't fit.  The first one I took it back anyway, gave a full refund, and when the belt came back I cut it into 4 pieces and threw it in the trash.  No, ma'am, I would NOT like to make you another belt "now that you know".  Thanks anyway.  Cutting that belt up was basically so I would never forget to not do that again.  If you don't order the "measure" belt, then sizing issues are YOUR fault and YOUR responsibility.  If it's a plain black, or brown, or tan, whatever.. send it back without muckin' it up and I'll send you a different one for the cost of the shipping.  Tooled, or otherwise customized, and it's yours - so let's do it right the first time.

PANTS SIZE?  I have jeans that say 34 I can't get on any more.  AND I also have jeans that say 34 that would drop off if I don't wear a belt (the belt is NOT a 34).

The PANTS SIZE is exactly the size you DON"T need.  Anybody ever see a piece of PVC pipe?  Get the 3".  IT's 3". Says 3" right one it.  Now, put another pipe over that.  Still want to say you need 3"? ;)
