MiM #15: Losing and Gaining Weight - Good or Bad?
My thoughts around losing and/or gaining weight and people's comments or perceptions. Being in the public eye with my 200 pound weight loss opens me up to some interesting comments and observations, many of which I would not have expected. In the early days I used to get frustrated and defensive, now I am more curious about what drives people's perceptions and how we can help change some of these by educating.

MiM #6: Thoughts on Alex Trebek and Doctors' Transference
Alex Trebek, tv personality most famous for the hit game show Jeopardy!, recently announced that he is battling pancreatic cancer. He made a public statement about it and announced that he will beat this disease. His demeanor and attitude was amazing. This triggered a flurry of media activity and articles talking about the odds for survival with his type of cancer. This makes me wonder how helpful that is to him at this point. He needs our support, not our pity.
