Allan is leaving the blogging world. He has helped many, many of us lose some massive amounts of weight and now he feels it’s time to move on. I want you to all know just how much Allan has meant to me.

I found Allan last October. Just when I was starting to struggle and lose faith and just not make any more headway in my life style changes. I was bored, stalled and so stuck that I was ready to throw in the towel. Allan was out there, losing an amazing amount of weight and had the first of his 6 challenges. He excepted me as one of the challengers and off we went. From then to now I have lost about 35 lbs and I know that if I hadn’t met him I am pretty sure I would of given up. Now I know that Allan has a way of saying things, doing things, and a different way of being but it is Allan and you know, even though I didn’t always agree, well I wouldn’t change a thing about that man. I am sure I am his slowest loser but a pretty steady one. I have followed all 6 of his challenges to date, not always word by word or exercise by exercise but they were always in the back of my mind and I would think, Allan isn’t going to like this or boy would Allan be proud of this.

Do you know that at Thanksgiving, he called me? He called me on the phone and taught me how to bake an amazing turkey in the most healthiest way possible. He has given me cooking and baking advice. I have learned a ton from this man.

Now for him it’s time to move on, time to do whatever is next for him. I wish him the very best in what’s left of his weight loss journey. He’s been amazing. Good luck Allan.

Now just for you Allan. Unless you change your e-mail address and your cell phone number you’re still stuck with this slow losing but very appreciative member of all of your 6 challenges.

Stop by any and everyone that has met Allan, that has learned a thing or two, that has had a chuckle or two, that has just enjoyed his journey into the land of the healthy, wealthy and wise.

Take care my friends, take care Allan. God Bless you all!!

I am guessing that you are not the only one who has met with success because of what your have learned with Allan. Sounds like he was just the ticket for you. I'll bet you were not the slowest loser either! Nice post for Allan and other's who worked with him to see. Have a great weekend!

Why American men should boycott American women

I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

I agree, he did a lot of good. I just wish he would continue the good and refrain from the negative. I think he could have an awesome blog if he did that! I feel sad for the people that he "could have" helped if he kept his blog going and stayed in the right direction. Positive, not tearing down. I think that I actually first heard of his blog through yours!
