I am new to fatherhood, and it is the most amazing thing in the world. Tuesdays are Daddy/Son day. We get to hang out, change diapers, fill up formula bottles, and play. In my 33 years on this earth, there is no better feeling than holding my son. A little warm bundle of joy. He looks at me with eyes that I have seen before. He makes faces that I have made before. When I stick my tongue out, he does the same. When I smile, he smiles. When I yell at the dog, well…he really does not do much. I listen to his cries to see what they mean. Are they hungry cries or diaper cries? Sometimes I get it right, other times I do not. Either way I hold him until he stops crying. I love the cute outfits he wears. One say “Organic Baby Safari” and another […]

To my wife Rebecca, The other day I received an e-mail from someone who follows my blog. She was very concerned about her husband’s weight and wanted some advice from me on what she could do. I know the answer, yet I never answer those e-mails. Every time someone asks me for help for someone they love I am at a loss for words, even though so many come to the tip of my tongue. So if at all possible, I want to ask you a few questions. Questions that I have never asked you, but wondered. How many times have you cried over my weight?How many times did you want to tell me I was being selfish?Did you cringe when I would tell you I would start a diet “tomorrow” only to make you happy for the moment?Did you pray I would go to the gym since I had […]

” I have strawberries and raspberries. I read you eat Egg Beaters…or was that eggs? Either way I have both in the refrigerator. I have some cottage cheese and I was not sure if you likes Granny Smith apples or the Red ones, so I got both. I also Map Quested the gym for you. I know you remember where it is. it is where the old Burlington Coat Factory is!” This is the first thing my mom said to me when I went to visit my father in the hospital. ” You look good. The working out has paid off. So what are you eating now, cucumbers. You probably should eat more than cucumbers. I read on your blog you are using the..what is this..elliptical machine? Is that like walking or something” This is the first thing my father said to me after surgery. ” The gym is only […]

Man, my wife should never leave me home alone! After entertaining a crying baby for four hours, I get a little nutty!!!

This morning was awesome!!! I woke up and checked my email and saw that I had over 50 of them! Usually I have around 5-10. See, I did this AOL interview last week, and today it was one of the scrolling stories on the main page. Super cool! Now I can say to people “Hi, I am Tony Posnanski, featured on CNN and AOL!!!!” Now, I won’t do that, but it is nice to know that I could!!! So I answered a lot of emails this morning. If I forgot yours, please do not be upset. Sometimes I do not get them all, so resend it! I got a ton of different questions. About diet, exercise, excess skin, how to motivate spouses, and why I blog. I have answered all of these questions in the past, but it does not get old for me. I could answer them all day […]
