the stay-puft marshmallow man

What were you doing one year ago today? I was at Patrick Sullivan's, posing for a group photo with the other members of Einstein Simplified. It also was the day my wife and I started following the LA Weight Loss plan.

In August of last year, I posted what is still one of my favorite blog entries. It included a photo of me in front of the "Coldest Beer in USA" sign. I had cropped the picture in an effort to hide my waist. Here, for the first time anywhere, is the original, uncropped shot:

While I'm unburdening myself, I may as well share a couple more photos from 2005. In May, I saw Marg Helgenberger at the "American Idol" finale after-party in Hollywood. In July, I went backstage before Kelly Clarkson's Knoxville concert. It looks like I wore the same shirt both times. Is it any wonder why these pictures stayed hidden?

I can't leave you with these images of me looking like a big ol' tick about to pop. Now that I've lost 60 pounds, I finally have photos I'm not ashamed of. Here are some recent ones that you may remember from my trip to Foamhenge and from my visit with the reptiles.

Frank, I never comment, but always read (and listen to the morning show). But I can't be silent anymore.
I just want to say "Great Job!" on the weight loss. You look great, and so much younger!
We're ALL proud of you! And by ALL, I mean the listeners and silent blog readers.

Hey Frank, Biggest Loser starts tonight. Wonder if you watch that along with all the other reality stuff you watch? Losing weight is hard, but keeping it off is really tough. Looks like you are winning that battle. Congratulations to you and your wife!

Good work Frank. It's nice to see that:

"You're not fat, you're white, you're Catholic and you're... sick about it!"

Frank you look great. I have a weight problem but can't afford the LA weightloss program. I try to lose weight and can't seem to get anywhere. Congrats to you and your wife.
