Back in Kathmandu

Hi friends! I have returned to Kathmandu. Wow! What a difference a day makes. I went to my favorite hotel last night and enjoyed a proper bed for the first time in 2 months. I also went and had 3 dinners at 3 different restaurants - all within 2 hours. I have lost about 25 pounds. I know weigh close to what I did in high school. Oh well. I will put the weight back on real quick. Plus, when I return, I start back up in Combat Calisthenics with all of my friends.
I will still offer a few different summit perspectives in the next few days. Thank you for your kind thoughts and prayers. I miss you all and can't wait to see you.

Wow. 25 pounds! Well, I will start cooking...magluba, hummus, enchilladas, tacos. And I am sure you will want a trip to Red Robin soon. Can't wait to see you! SOOOO EXCITED!
Love you,
Diana & Alexander

Dude! I think you'd better take a picture to show us what starvation must look like ;-)

Glad that you are almost home. Hope to see you pretty soon.

Ironically, your fitness tip of the day on the blog is that those who need to lose weight should do so gradually. I don't think you needed to in the first place and certainly not so much so fast! Excited to hear you're getting closer to being home to your family :) Travel safe and enjoy the food!

So glad you made it safely back to Kathmandu - another answer to prayer. Can't wait to see you. What sounds good? Chicken kiev? Brisket? Pizza roll-up? I doubt you'll have any problem putting the weight back on!

Will be praying for continued traveling safety.

Love, Mom and Dad

Perhaps a Hot Pocket? or some Egg-Os?

Enjoy the beds, showers, food, etc. Have a safe last leg of your trip back to your family and Colorado! We'll keep praying for the total completion of your amazing dream. God is so good!

25 pounds and 3 meals in 3 hours? I'd like to eat that much! I'm sure you'll regain the weight quickly if you keep eating like that! See you soon.
