  9. Hello Scorpion- so finally i got to see AAJA NACHLE and it was great..in south Asia we would say " it was 1st class" lol. i loved the title song. i also love the songs from Jaanat and the song "Pehli Nazar" from Race... people in my office will soon start complaing coz i have been listening to this song for 8 hrs each day. Adam Zayla- If you liked Jodha Akbar,you might also like Mughal-e-azam. the movie is loosely based on the life of the Mughal Emperor Jahangir. look for the one that is in color that was made some time in the 60's.
  10. Having a support system is very important when trying to loose weight. I’m glad that you started this thread and hope you receive some useful advice from the SOL community. I have struggled with weight problems for as long as I could remember. I have also tried every diet out there; from weight watchers to South Beach and L.A weight loss (this one was pricy). It took me 25 yrs to realize that diets don’t work but what works is life style change. Diets help you loose the first 10- 20 pounds and make you feel like you’re in control. It takes a few weeks before you start rebelling against the diet and start cheating. I have decided 2008 is my year to make some life style changes. I started out with small changes such as eliminating sugar (I use Splenda) and white flour from my diet and incorporating more veggies and white meat. I’m also locked in a 18 month contract at bally total fitness and have been working out there couple of times a week with a friend. It’s slow progress but who said you could loose weight overnight. So, my advice to you is start out with small changes and find some time to work out few times a week. Men tend to loose weight much faster than women. Keep us posted on your progress and I hope the rest of the SOL Biggest Looser Group do the same…). KK- Do you remember a day few yrs ago, when certain 2 people worked out, had a meal and decided to walk home? What a bad choice that was lol. Scorpion- count me in.
  11. Wellcome droid19..hope you enjoy your stay here.
  12. General Duke- i dont think you need a ticket to get in. last time he was at the target center, we stood in line for almost 3 hrs before we got in..am not sure i want to repeat that...)
