CHEF TIMOTHY: Losing weight is a constant battle some people find difficult to win. It's a problem that affects tens of thousands of people who are on the verge of becoming obese or are already too heavy and in jeopardy of becoming seriously ill.
So, are you in a battle with your weight?
Before I go any further, let me give kudos to BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee for addressing the obesity problem in Memphis and the Mid-South through its Healthy Church Challenge 100-day weight loss competition. From what I understand, hundreds have taken the challenge to stay healthy and physically fit.

WHAT'S HAPPENING MYRON? This weekend I went out to see "Iron Man 3." I usually don't make plans to go see movies such as this, it just sort of happens when you have kids. That accounts for how I've sat through versions 1 and 2.
However, after nearly two hours of non-stop action, a ton of overpriced concessions and a restless two year old, I must say that I wasn't disappointed at all.
Without giving up the plot or ending, this particular installment of the "Iron Man" series to be sort of a wrap-up, as if there won't be an "Iron Man 4." But of course we all know better, huh?

There's plenty of guidance available to help you feel confident that it's time to retire. But it could be just as important to recognize signs that you may not be ready. You might think of these as yellow caution lights, warning you to slow down and give further thought to your situation.
You've reached the eligibility age for Social Security. For some people, Social Security eligibility is synonymous with retirement.
