[01:19:19] <Bytram> cmn32480: how's things?
[01:21:59] <cmn32480> don't ask
[01:22:04] <cmn32480> family dinner
[01:22:28] <cmn32480> that's a question loaded with C4
[01:24:20] <Bytram> oh. ouch.
[01:25:21] <cmn32480> yeah
[01:25:48] <cmn32480> how about you? things good in your neck of the woods?
[01:28:00] <Bytram> oh, yes. had a nice dinner with family, got home, and then took a 90-minute nap.
[01:28:09] <Bytram> am now trying to code a fix for the site
[01:28:22] <Bytram> clicking on a topic icon brings up a list of stories with that topic
[01:28:23] <cmn32480> sounds like a freaking dream
[01:28:30] <Bytram> but the order is not useful
[01:28:43] <Bytram> so, am trying to find all theplaces that a topic icon is displayed and
[01:28:51] <Bytram> adding a '&sort=2' parameter to the url
[01:29:04] <Bytram> yes, I am fortunate to get along well with my sibs
[01:29:16] <cmn32480> not my family
[01:29:20] <cmn32480> J's
[01:29:26] <Bytram> well, there was another sib & their family who did not show. :(
[01:29:27] <cmn32480> always been fun
[01:29:39] <cmn32480> worse since he father divorced
[01:29:40] <Bytram> were you allowed to cheat on your diet today?
[01:29:44] * Bytram hopes so
[01:29:54] <cmn32480> better in some ways... worse in others
[01:29:56] <cmn32480> yes
[01:30:05] <Bytram> yum!
[01:30:31] * Bytram only had a few chocolate eggs today.
[01:30:33] <cmn32480> yeah her mom made this baked pineapple bread pudding ish thing that was fabulous
[01:30:53] <Bytram> oooooooh.... that sounds *YUMMY*
[01:31:13] <cmn32480> it was
[01:31:39] <Bytram> I'm pretty much a meat-and-potatoes kind of guy, but there's a sweet tooth that lurks within =)
[01:31:56] <cmn32480> yeah
[01:32:03] <cmn32480> I was good on the cakes adn candy and such
[01:32:12] <Bytram> is hard, I know.
[01:32:18] <cmn32480> didn't eat much of it
[01:32:44] <Bytram> good for you!
[01:32:55] <Bytram> I was once put on some meds that messed with my appetite
[01:33:02] <cmn32480> I prefer dinner over the desserts
[01:33:32] <Bytram> at the time, I could put away a lot of food and not gain any weight (very high metabolism)
[01:33:45] <Bytram> well, this somehow shutdown the 'I am full' sensor
[01:33:55] <Bytram> gained about 20 pounds
[01:34:04] <Bytram> on my frame, that is a LOT
[01:34:17] <Bytram> eventually was taken off the meds
[01:34:32] <Bytram> discovered it was a lot easier to put on the weight than it was to take it off
[01:34:41] <cmn32480> always is
[01:35:20] <Bytram> well, just found myself focussing on something else for a while and, suitably distracted, I could postpone eating until the next meal
[01:35:35] <Bytram> also helped that carrying around the extra 20 pounds was a royal pain
[01:35:44] <cmn32480> it is
[01:35:50] <Bytram> was like carrying around two 10-lb sacks of potatoes ... All. Day. Long.
[01:36:01] <cmn32480> some of us could stand to drop abotu 40-50
[01:36:24] <Bytram> didn't gain it all at once, will take some time for it to go away
[01:36:43] <Bytram> one thing that helped was to stop drinking -- lots of empty calories in booze
[01:37:28] <cmn32480> yeah
[01:37:31] <cmn32480> I dropped beer
[01:37:50] <cmn32480> some months ago
[01:37:57] <Bytram> anyway, though that was many years ago, I still remember... gained a lot of respect for those who were trying to lose wight
[01:38:01] <Bytram> *weight
[01:38:05] <Bytram> good for you
[01:38:13] <cmn32480> the end result is that you have to burn more than you take in
[01:38:58] <Bytram> in general, I'd agree
[01:39:09] <Bytram> though there have been reports lately about how differences in one's
[01:39:20] <Bytram> biome affect how much of the calories that are present
[01:39:24] <Bytram> in the food that you eat
[01:39:29] <Bytram> actually get extracted
[01:40:05] <Bytram> looking back, I think I had a combination of a very high metabolism, coupled with a selective biome.
[01:41:37] <cmn32480> i gain weight like it is my job when I fdon't work out
[01:41:42] <cmn32480> always have
[01:42:14] <Bytram> I know it sounds gross, but keep your eyes open on 'fecal transplants'
[01:43:09] <cmn32480> ?
[01:43:18] <cmn32480> for helping the gut to use more calories?
[01:43:53] <Bytram> actually, not so much to *use* more calories, but to be less selective about the calories it could extract (IOW, let more pass through unprocessed)
[01:45:51] <Bytram> if there were no biome there, AIUI, food would just pass straight through (like an inert pipe) and I would literally starve to death.
[01:46:28] <cmn32480> got iy
[01:47:28] <Bytram> I'd wait a bit for them to get the kinks out of it, but from where I am at, it seems to hold a lot of promise and seems to explain why some people can eat and eat without gaining weight, and others can gain weight by 'just looking at' food.
[01:49:53] <cmn32480> interesting science
[01:50:07] <Bytram> agreed!
[01:50:33] <Bytram> I know my metabolism is way up there (there is very little I do slowly)
[01:50:58] <Bytram> but I've always been 'skinny' and have often wondered why such a difference in people's weights
[01:51:20] <Bytram> would see my mom not eat much for her meals and, as she got older, started to put on weight
[01:51:29] <Bytram> scientific method, I started to ponder
[01:52:04] <Bytram> calories_in - calories_burned == weight_gain seemed somewhat inadequate to explain the entire situation
[01:52:23] <Bytram> differences in absorption of what was consumed seemed to fill in the blanks for me
