  1. Congratulations Mike, Good luck to you. Thanks for sharing your story. I have also struggled with my weight most of my life. In my late twenties I was in fantastic shape, working out everyday. Then slowly over time I put the weight back. Life happens: stressful job, a couple kids and all the excuses i could make. On August 15th last year I made a commitment to myself to change. It’s so hard but it’s so important if i want to be around to enjoy my family. Ive lost 39 lbs since that day. My cholesterol has dropped to a very good level (180 total) and my blood pressure is 110/70. My diet is super boring but it works and it’s how my body craves nutrition now. I eat a high protein diet and no processed foods at all. I eat a good amount of fruits, A large amount of vegetables each day and lean proteins, with a steak once a month for reward. Always controlling portion size. I’ve never been able to do extreme diets as I fall off them, but this new rhythm I have can easily be sustainable for the rest of my life. I have no ideas of changing. Fruits are so debated in weight loss. I love every kind of fruit, they are satisfying and so good for you. Yes they contain sugar but they are also realitively low calorie for the volume you get. I’ve had nutritionists tell me to not eat any and others tell me to not limit them. I have lost weight eating them but I know others who have not had the same experience. I don’t eat pasta anymore and that is tough for an Italian, no pizza, no bread. If I’m completely honest I do miss pizza. I had a piece a while ago but felt terrible after, so I remember that and it makes choices easier. I hardly drink alcohol anymore. I love wine, have always kept a great collection and now I watch my wife drink it, but she knows not to touch the barolos Some day I’ll go back in moderation. On a positive it’s more money for cigars I travel for work a good amount and I used to always think I can’t diet on the road. Over the last year I’ve proven to myself that was also another excuse. Sometimes I can actually eat better on the road with the variety of choices available now. I’ve lost weight on every business trip I’ve taken this year. It’s a journey that’s for sure, mistakes happen and it’s about getting through the bad choice and staying the course. Good luck to everyone trying, I hope you all reach your goal weight.

  8. @Nekhyludov well done my friend. Really fabulous review. I am very happy you enjoyed it. We will get together again for another session. Cheers,
  9. Good day everyone, I really try to not like this cigar. I don't like the price, the size or the packaging. Yet each time I have one it fills a need for me. I know some say to cut a D4 down or throw it away early but I love my D4s and can't bring myself to do it. I was driving a few weeks back, it was a 45 min drive to the golf course so I lit one up. Half way through my mouth was filled with this sweet sugar cane taste that was absolutely incredible. It's a top cigar moment for me and now I'm chasing that experience to happen again. They are now in my rotation for shorter smokes. Anyone else?

    I have a problem!

    I've been guilty of hoarding. It took me a while to realize that of all the amazing cigars I've had, I'd rather have the memories of taste and enjoyment of that stick than the memory of it sitting in my humidor. I had an older SLR DC for a number of years that I truly forgot about in my singles drawer. One day I just grabbed it and fired it up, it was glorious. One of the best smokes I've had, I can remember it much better now. Plus... it's a 50 cab, you have 49 more restock at 25 and do it again. Do what makes you happy, enjoy in good health.

PigFish's three additions are now in the box to pick from. @ChanceSchmerr, this has really been an outstanding box pass!
