ELECTION RETURNS TO START BETWEEN 7:15 AND 7:30 P.M

The rules require that certain representatives be at the Elections office before Remi Garza can release the tally of early voting.  At times candidates intentionally fail to timely send a representative so the release is held up.  The second the Elections Office or the COB release the tally of early voting, the BV will post same.  I suspect I will be able to call at least one race at that time, but it would not shock me if I can call all three races based solely on the early voting.

As has been the case for over 10 years, the BV brings Cameron county the best election coverage hands down of any news media.  I am live and on top of it. 

BRIEF UPDATE ON BARIATRIC SURGERY

No blue berry pie tonight. A tradition lost. I am down 20 pounds since prepping for the bariatric surgery.  I have two months before I have to make the final decision.  The newest research shows if I can lose 40 pounds before the surgery I can do it without the surgery.  The source of my weight is not overeating or a lack of exercise.  The other day I benched 190 20 times.  I do 30 laps a day in the pool.

My problem is the hypothalamus.  While on Androgel you can reverse the weight gain if you can find the balance.  Well I am now on Premier protein drink for breakfast and lunch.  Previously I tried Glucerna and gained 8 pounds.  My surgeon in my case recommends Premier.  The chocolate is amazing.  The key is discipline.  That is easy.  I am not hungry all day.  The two protein drinks are fine.  I eat a small dinner.  I did not know but for diet and metabolism purposes you need to eat only the protein in your meal first.

The research shows in my case if I can lose the weight on my own, I will keep it off so long as I stay on the Androgel and avoid all foods and drinks with estrogen, like soy milk.  I am going to work hard on that 40 pound mark.
