Anodizing question/theory

25 May 2013 - 12:07 AM

Does anodizing stick to other anodizing? What would happen if you anodized a marker red, then lasered a pattern into it, then ano'd it blue? Would the red color be affected?

My weight loss

10 April 2013 - 11:17 PM

In early October, I was challenged by a co-worker to lose 30 pounds by Christmas break (I work at a school). I made it my mission to prove that I could do it, and then keep up with it. For the first few weeks, I didn't weigh myself because I was scared to see how much I weighed. Over the first few weeks of watching what I was eating, I noticed my clothes fitting better. On October 22, I finally got on a scale and weighed in at 330. Since I didn't have a "real" starting weight for the beginning of October, I wanted to get down to 300 by break. I noticed the weight coming off steadily, made my goal and ended up losing over 35 by Christmas. Progress continued until I went on a weeks vacation to France. I don't know if you know, but France is pretty damn good at making pastries. Over the course of the 7 days, I gained 8 pounds, but was back to my pre-travel weight by the middle of the following week. After that, I was really into losing weight; daily workouts on the exercise bike, and just recently, I started running. Today, I weighed in at 240. My next, and possibly final (for now), goal is to get down to 220 by the time Living Legends starts. I wanted to be in an XL by then, but that was accomplished about a month ago. I plan on updating this thread every week or so.
