continue those yeah so it’s been a good nine months I’m an amazing night rates yeah I’m really glad we finally decided to do this it took us about a month or so just kind of starting to get our cabinets ready and starting to get in the mode of okay what do we want to do and how would we fix it if it’s pizza night and then of course you got your you know your little fat head be gone and then this isn’t bad but what could we do to make it for us so we tweaked it and twisted it and enhanced it and now that video is close to a hundred thousand views that’s saying yeah I think we’re at 97 thousand views that was my very first video I was so nervous doing it we got like a weird comments on that video they always say it looks burnt but it’s just garlic butter crust it’s geez and when you put garlic butter on cheese and you cook that in the oven it’s gonna burn up a little and we preferred thinner and like more of a crunchy or crispy err ant crust versus a mushy or a doughy we’re from Chicago we’re used to thin crust pizzas in Chicago well I’m like Jesus we like the thin our favorite yeah but uh yeah it’s not burnt guys it actually tastes wonderful and it’s you know well yeah that’s the common always from the picture and from the videos boy it looks really big thing is you didn’t bite into it and say mmm at the end of the video maybe you do a 2.0 and you bite into you don’t even we make the pizza and then start the video with right and then here’s I make it and you tweet things too even since then you’ve quite a bit yeah she’s chilling the dough now makes it roll easier yeah weeks like that so maybe you will do it Joe I’m hoping to hear this week if I get a full-time position at Costco oh my gosh guys please pray for us yes if you’re afraid if you’re not good vibes in fact yes um I’m hoping that comes too because if that does that means I will see you be home and I can do some videos and yeah see this morning it’s only seven o’clock and we’re trying to wrap this up so she can have to work and I won’t see you tonight late yeah yeah well it’s an early night at mat o’clock oh well be 10:30 yeah so um on our sheets we’ve gone over our BMI BMI for me is 21.6 oh okay that’s down to of course yes we’re down yep that’s down as well what was our starting beam eyes do we even have that you know I don’t have the starting BMI well it just goes down when you lose your weight well then it’s calculated by your height that’s why I was mentioning my high – yeah but it’s just by height weight right okay yeah I don’t do these things Stace doesn’t let’s see what else is new – checking on we’ve recently ordered our rad power bikes we did the rad Rovers we did one for Stacey one for me got those in the mail and sat down and started building them we got one built and I think I’m gonna do a little video on building like number two a lot of questions online you know how hard is it and I’m not finding it that hard at all maybe when we’re all done in tweet I’ll take him over to bike shop and just make sure I’ve not missed anything important or if there’s a adjustments that need to be made but at this point first one went together I stuck a battery on it and what around our little complex here some use you fantastic because we can just we have the same frame science and I just having to adjust the seat so I went out and we live on dirt roads so I went out and did a little off-roading that test that front shock support but that is our next step in our Kido journey here and our weight loss and fitness journey is to kind of step into that whole Fitness realm and I think these bikes are gonna be a game changer for me when we rode regular bikes even it my way now 330s because we did this about two weeks ago yeah I got pretty tired I mean it’s not easy for me to pedal that especially over viana any kind of an incline this assistance from the ebike where it gives you five levels of assistance that you can add to your pedaling oh my gosh game changer guys let me tell you so much fun so so much fun and we have beautiful parks out here yes please eat in Metro Park has a lot I mean miles of paved paths so we’re gonna go join the Metro Parks hit the low pass and go for a ride maybe we’ll do that tomorrow I’d love to yeah you don’t work til 2:00 tomorrow until 2:00 so we’ve all hit it a little bike ride tomorrow yeah yeah throw camber Anja and catch Stacey’s reaction to riding the bike on the path I’m real excited about these bikes though I had to give up a lot to get them I sold a couple guitars I sold my MacBook Pro it pains me do this sold that but I really had to weigh out the options you know what did I really need or want I really wanted these bikes certainly you know we’re paying for him out of pocket I spent the money on them full price everything you know we’ve also got some comments on over that should be here today Saturday they’re the team acidity of team obsidian airflow helmets so they’re really nice and yeah those are those like tapping line great helmets that’s the same come with the Greg over at Casey Kido recommend it to me so I jumped on the Amazon got you of course I jumped on the amazon amaz actually got you one of the guys it’s just really cool it is you’ll see oh it’s me how’s that why I see how those switch that stands out yeah so I’m gonna be it knows today so just in time for maybe go for argument yeah that would be awesome and I now feature a little bit about those bikes when we get him like I said I think I’m gonna kind of like film a little bit it might not work out but of building that second bike because I had read so many questions and I was a little bit nervous about building it I’m like well should I just take it in and get it built and then I I was like you know what open it see what it’s not that big on every single instruction first and then he goes through and then he builds it step by steps that’s true but it was really simple I mean real simple throw the front wheel take your word for that because I’m not doing it it’s so not hard at all guys so if you’re even interested in that they do offer a service to build it for you but I want the truck check it out my hubby yeah and now like I said I might throw him on the bike rack run by the bike shop say hey you got five minutes come look at this do anything wrong but I think we’re good makes feel good I’ve been able to adjust those fine yep yup it’s all good so what else do we got going on anything else we got our bikes coming while they’re here we’re gonna get that coming which is gonna be awesome yeah you’ll probably see something with like a little bike show up there knows to be keynote away cuz that’s just the next level of our exercise you’ll be more I’ve seen many people that go for a walk and they talk about their kid okay let’s get some exercise it I’ve even jumped on the exercise bike and you know recorder me sitting here talking about things that are coming up or me we’re doing yeah what else did you want to talk about your trip to Indy oh yeah this was a week where I did some traveling some surprise that didn’t maintain or go up a half so I went down to Indy I picked up my two sisters two sisters that I’ve never met this is a very weird long story of DNA matchups I found out my dad wasn’t my dad found out who my real dad was biologically found out that he had three other children that I’m aware of at this point a brother fantastic brother Dickie he’s fantastic Sharon and she’s out in Texas yes in Deena and she’s out in Colorado well I thought it’d be really cool we have forgotten to the same place at the same time pinkies down in the Illinois just outside Indianapolis you just cross over the state line had Deena and Sharon fly into Indy I drove down from Michigan indeed picked them up at the airport we had a wonderful time hanging out the three of us just talking and hanging out and then we scooted over me a minute because he says the three of us well that would be Deena’s right sure he was performing well Vicki’s in Illinois but yeah Dickie was performing so what we did was we went to the airport in Indy picked him up drove over to where he was playing and surprise him and he he and Deena had a relationship and had known each other but he had never met Sharon he had met me because I had gone down once previously and yeah saw him play and we just had a blast let me tell you that guy’s it man he plays guitar like you know nothing I’ve ever seen that it’s a different kind of style it’s a rocky kind of southern blues you can Mississippi kind of vibe to it it’s really fun I enjoyed it now my own little YouTube channel I’m actually working on a video or two that I took while I was down there of them playing so if you go over to the will a channel that’s mine my channel for just my junk there’s really nothing much on there but I’m going to be working on those who speaking putting some of those clips up for him it was just so much fun and then we all got to be in the same place we all got to at the first it’s the first time you’ve ever all been in these yeah he’s together as brothers and sisters I do have another sister that I grew up with we’re not biologically related she’s not biologically related to them because we have different fathers yeah but so now you know my family is just growing and the really interesting and kind of cool part about that whole DNA thing is tomorrow I could wake up and have another match and it could be another brother or a sister or half brother or sister from my dad’s from from my dad side with these other three that I have diggie and Chairman Deena yeah or could even be from Gerry my other sister Gerry thank because no no wouldn’t because that would be for her though anyway you have another for her exactly our half-sister for her and I don’t think my mom had any other kids I don’t think the only option I got is if my biological dad that I didn’t get to meet I had had more children that were not aware of but that’s that’s the fascination of DNA you just never know nobody could get a test somebody could do a test and bam next thing you know you’re like oh man that’s how it worked for me so crazy yep very crazy but that was very cool I was glad he was able to do that I unfortunately wasn’t able to go with them to try them I tried really hard I couldn’t get out of both jobs for all of the days and then Julia started school on the day that he was coming back so we have a middle schooler now she’s in sixth grade excited our oldest daughter Lauren is at U of M she is in her sophomore year this year so they’re growing up quick just kind of said but I’m happy for both of them means will be empty nesters at some point Lauren’s 15 minutes from home U of M is right down the street so you know every time I turn around she’s coming home doing laundry hanging out and that I wouldn’t have it any other way no it makes mama happy she makes my was how happy yes me too yeah I was interested manatee I want to scare home I want to see her out there doing what she’s got him wrapped right there yeah well I think that was about it for us but thank you for hanging out with us have you stuck to the end here and right after all of this you’ll see our pictures of day one versus last night which was nine months so we’ll have the little before after before and we’ll just continue on this journey I’m I’m not sure I don’t see it ending I think we’ve pretty much changed our lifestyle to eating Aikido yeah I never have considered in a diet I just was trying to get rid of the process the sugar the process the box things and we’ve done that yeah you did that from day one I’ve stuck with it I still do my car manager I feel like some would say I fail but I’m I’m not failing on the carb manager and I what I’m doing I’m just not reducing on the scale and feeling like pork stock but you know as I watch other videos and I watch other channels and people there are times this happens that my gosh i watch team ENT 2ks she’s over you know 100 weeks is well over a hundred weeks and I’ve gone back and watched some of the older ones and you know I’m up three pounds I don’t know why you know or now I’m down to pounds and you know I’m almost back to where I was and that happens that happens so we appreciate all the feedback people give our channel to say you know hey try this or do this and that certainly appreciate it I am always tweaking and experimenting and trying different things and I’m reviewing things to like hmm this is what I’m using let me look at this label really closely and make sure there’s not something that might be stalling me and in terms of what I’m using like for my chicken I was using the G hues and had a few people say well you know it’s got a little bit of sucralose in it I think it is so sick you know I’m knock off that so I just been using the rubble long yeah for a couple weeks now probably about three weeks I hadn’t really noticed any real changes but again that’s the kind of things that I’m looking at trying to tweak and trying to do see if something just clicks to see if something makes that difference yeah you gotta follow me into you’re beating me now aren’t you yeah you know know when that time totally yeah no your 51.2 I’m only d point for ya but you got nothing left I’m still full fat so this should be able to kick your boy well you’re right I will eventually and those bytes are gonna help us – yes I’m a scientist I dude about the bikes yes I’m very excited for the bikes and we will be wearing comments yes yeah actually when mind getting a pair of gloves – but just just in case you were to take that fall or something right what’s gonna hit your pom-poms yeah yeah it’s coming into fall – so we won’t be like super sweaty yeah so so watch first are the bikes – we’re gonna do that yes we will you’re no fun I’m putting the video on him – it’s not just gonna be on me yeah and we’re gonna review the bikes cuz this is first uses for us I mean think I think we have two to three miles on that one because both of us weren’t around the subdivision for like 15 minutes in fact she took off and I was starting to walk around like is she okay that way down the street – tom was on I want to go on the dirt road yeah she was the railroad tracks yeah the front shock suspension you know that like she okay well yeah she was fine to keep tuning back with big smile on her face I’m so excited definitely get that video out and do some follow-ups on – cuz uh I’ll tell you what this is something I never considered I’d be riding a bike again yeah – I gave up on bikes probably almost 15-20 years ago just too heavy too big too hard for me at 400 plus I was 442 at one point previous takedo I was doing Weight Watchers I was doing my best to reduce weights it took a while plus I have to laugh because the bike is almost it’s I’m Toby it is it is heavy it’s a very difference getting off the bike I almost fell but it’s like weight 60 pounds you just have to be aware when you’re playing with your hands that you will need it’s almost half my body weight yeah when you move your leg you’ve got to keep the balance on and just keep the kids day yeah it was a little different but I was like whoa dad it’s a definitely a center heavy bike it’s got the bag big battery pack and a little motor on the back very fun now oh my gosh they’re addictive so you have to watch for that video because it’s coming yeah yeah well we’ll see some review videos and I’m thinking as we get farther like a hundred miles or 500 miles do a little follow-up if we had anything fixed or adjusted or if there was any problems you know like I said we were sponsored by we’re a during weeks we spent almost three thousand dollars at least bike seats nope but it’s worth it and I saw the bunch of junk so sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do yeah so I made it happen and we didn’t have to charge it so because I was able to sell some things and take the money you paid for that absolutely that’s why we did charge it to get the points oh yeah yeah I got my Amazon points baby yeah got mine was that points and then I just put the money in it and transferred it over to pay right yeah that’s the way we do it that works yep well thank you so much for sticking with us we do appreciate all the love and support and do not forget right after we’re done all of our pictures will be at the end of the video that’s crazy yeah they look great I looked at it real quick I look at I was looking through real quick I mean I know what I see just in the mirror but I haven’t seen the side-by-side comparisons okay I enjoy looking at pictures it’s an account change yeah probably my goal I think I’d like to be about 240 at 66 and I don’t know and that could change I could 250 could feel real good or I could say you know I still got some flabby I’d like to go to 230 know we’ll see when I get there my goal in my head is 240 and that was pretty close to what I weighed in high school like I think I was 238 or something when I met you even yeah I was 238 tell you where I was we met you were nothing you were like 105 or something yeah she can like string bean you’re kind of getting back to chicken like screaming well have to give you 105 that would be unhealthy for you I am very comfortable where I’m at yeah but thank you very much again thanks a lot 20th time we’ll say goodbye and get Stacey off to work here it’s a little after 7:00 she’s got to be a fine I do see you later thank you later guys thank you for hanging out with us for 9 full months that’s crazy 40 weeks 40 weeks I think that constitutes a shirt for you yeah I think I have a job as we come on make your bonds Aikido sure absolutely I will do that when you see us next week she will be wearing a bonsai Tito shirt maybe me too yeah we’ll see okay love you hey now she’s taking off on me you see this is the way Saturday’s work she walks away I sit here alone then I got to go up and edit this video then I put it up and then if I’m lucky I get a text when she’s on break when she goes from one to the other or if she’s not a small break and then I see it about 10:00 10:30 at night so let’s all pray for Stacey to get full time at Costco so that life can get back to normal and have one job one 40-hour a week job instead of two 25 to 30 hour week jobs that would benefit us all can’t put my glasses back on now so I can actually see this is our chichi by the way you have to write all these numbers down yeah it helps you you you
