Total weight loss for Jon: 9 lbs
Total weight loss for Janene: 4 lbs
Let's ask the contenders how they feel with this final result!
Janene's comments: "A small victory for me is good. I'm glad we did it together."
Jon's comments: "I didn't realize how fun this would be, I got into some good habits, and learned a lot about how to lose weight , I'd like to thank my competitor for giving me a run for (and spending) my money. Hopefully now we can work together to lose even more weight" I would also like to thank all my friends and family for their support.
Thank you both again for including the JAE in your pre-marital squabble , we are honored to have had you, and wish you the best out on your steak dinner!
· HOLY DIAL-UP! WTF is wrong with my internet!? I can't be expected to surf at the speed of Hawaii traffic!
· Dude, I think you missed the point here...that she is a he. Ew.
· Excuse me, I'm a little busy, Greg, I'm becoming an expert in radiological physics.
· Also, just in case my house goes for a swim, I would like to give a shout out to Douglas Adams...
· The mustache is on! Wasn't gonna do it, but now, I will let the madness take on a life of it's own. By the end of the month, I will have a ferret calmly resting on my upper lip.

Jon: One week down one to go. I see the light and it seems to be running away from me, hahaha. I’ve lost a total of 4 pounds !! I am really stepping it up this last week. My use of biological warfare has seemed to slow down my opponent but how long will it last? I ,like my opponent, has discovered a weakness in her plan. She refuses to eat beans and this will be to my advantage. I have replaced dinner with beans to substitute my protein and fiber. This last stretch is going to be a gas....
There you have it folks the battle is fierce and the contestants are still thirsty for blood! Make sure you tune in next week for the conclusion to this all our war next on the JAE!
Santa Claus is not real.
Still other times the desire is there and capability is not .Maybe it’s the woman who taunts you with another man. Maybe it’s the car you can’t afford. Or a wish to change the past. Maybe you want your money back for the bad boob job—hey, I’m not judging that deflated, cockeyed art project you wear under your shirt. Humans are for some reason conditioned to keep up with the Jones’ or to want the next best thing. Below are some recent observations of wants; some will likely never be achieved, some might take some persistence:
