Yaaaaaaaaaay Harry. Not posting the shot of his innards.

Hey folks, Harry here - back from surgery. The procedure got delayed a couple of hours - but it went without a hitch. My doctor was very happy with me - apparently the pre-op diet I followed perfectly - and there was zero fat on my liver - making the surgery very easy and with minimal stomach bruising.... which is why - an hour and a half after sugery - I find myself back home playing Speed Racer Wii with my nephew - sipping Chicken Broth and ice water.... whilst feeling a bit like Daniel Larusso after those Cobra Kai bastards got a hold of his gut. Can't really eat anything for a week - just broth - protein drinks and basically water. But this is awesome - feel great - and I'm updating the site.... so excuse me - I'm gonna put in RAMBO in BluRay and tough it like a real man should!

Below is Inside Harry Knowles... what you're looking at is my collared stomach. This image was taken from inside via a small film crew that was shrunk down, placed in skintight suits... including on really hot gal that was the spitting image of Raquel Welch, but it wasn't... some chick named Cora. But damn she was hot. This was a very penetrating view of my stomach. The untamed beast has officially been domesticated.

And his previous post:

Hey folks, Harry here... As many of you know - for quite some time I've been working towards getting a LapBand Operation. This is one of the modern tools one can use in the fight against obesity. It's completely reversible and adaptable to one's life needs - and it is... by no means a miracle one-stop cure all for obesity. Instead, what it does is it helps guide someone with my problems into a lifestyle of multiple meals, very small, throughout the day. It guides you into that process by forming a small pouch at the top of the stomach that allows you to consume about a hand size portion of food at any time - and since this process will be at the top of the stomach - it gives me the sensation of being FULL - thus ending craving and hunger issues.

What the Lapband doesn't do is it doesn't make you eat the right things, that's up to me. It doesn't make me exercise, that's me. Since being diagnosed with Diabetes 6 weeks ago, I've lost right at 52 pounds based solely on Diet change and regular 1 hour workouts at 24 Hour Fitness. For the past two weeks I've been on Atkins in prep for the surgery - (Atkins helps reduce fat around the liver, which makes the surgery easier for the operating surgeon.)

This isn't something that I've been working towards for a couple of years. The Diabetes diagnosis added resolve, much needed resolve to solving the issues that have plagued me. At the start of all of this - I was 417 lbs. Wore 7xl shirts and size 62 pants. I was a very fat fatass. Technically - I still am. And I've been a happy fatman - but when Diabetes came into the equation - which has a possibility of blindness (which would really **** up my favorite passion in life, film) I have taken the steps necessary to defeat Type 2 Diabetes. In the last 6 weeks - I've brought my blood sugar levels to near normal levels through diet and exercise. And this surgery is necessary to getting myself down to approximately 220lbs and walking, running and dancing. Oh - and Diabetes free - allowing me years to serve all of y'all by covering films and film events.

The surgery will take place Tuesday - May 20th at 10am (C.S.T.) at the AUSTIN SURGICAL HOSPITAL, 3003 BEE CAVES Rd, Austin, Tx 78746. (512) 314-3800. The surgical process takes 45 minutes - but they say I'll be under for approximately 3 hours. Once I come to, I'll update back here for a status on how everything went. Unless it all goes horrible... they poke my belly - it opens up, my belly jaws biting the surgeons arms off - they flame throw me, but I'll try to have my head crawl off and type a final message for all of you. But they tell me that hardly ever happens outside of the Arctic.

I'd like to thank all of you good folks that have written in with support and well wishes. But don't worry - people in a lot worse shape than I am in have done this and they've never lost anyone through the process. This is just my way of getting my physical body in the sort of shape that my life is already in. Which is to say - pretty ****ing perfect.

I'll be writing in - in about 12-14 hours. Till then - lots of love!<link rel="File-List" href="file:///C:%5CDOCUME%7E1%5CADMINI%7E1%5CLOCALS%7E1%5CTemp%5Cmsohtml1%5C01%5Cclip_filelist.xml"><link rel="Edit-Time-Data" href="file:///C:%5CDOCUME%7E1%5CADMINI%7E1%5CLOCALS%7E1%5CTemp%5Cmsohtml1%5C01%5Cclip_editdata.mso"><!--[if !mso]> <style> v\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);} o\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);} w\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);} .shape {behavior:url(#default#VML);} </style> <![endif]--><o:smarttagtype namespaceuri="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" name="Street"></o:smarttagtype><o:smarttagtype namespaceuri="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" name="PostalCode"></o:smarttagtype><o:smarttagtype namespaceuri="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" name="State"></o:smarttagtype><o:smarttagtype namespaceuri="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" name="address"></o:smarttagtype><o:smarttagtype namespaceuri="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" name="City"></o:smarttagtype><o:smarttagtype namespaceuri="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" name="place"></o:smarttagtype><!--[if gte mso 9]><xml> <w:WordDocument> <w:View>Normal</w:View> <w:Zoom>0</w:Zoom> <w:PunctuationKerning/> <w:ValidateAgainstSchemas/> <w:SaveIfXMLInvalid>false</w:SaveIfXMLInvalid> <w:IgnoreMixedContent>false</w:IgnoreMixedContent> <w:AlwaysShowPlaceholderText>false</w:AlwaysShowPlaceholderText> <w:Compatibility> <w:BreakWrappedTables/> <w:SnapToGridInCell/> <w:WrapTextWithPunct/> <w:UseAsianBreakRules/> <w:DontGrowAutofit/> </w:Compatibility> <w:BrowserLevel>MicrosoftInternetExplorer4</w:BrowserLevel> </w:WordDocument> </xml><![endif]--><!--[if gte mso 9]><xml> <w:LatentStyles DefLockedState="false" LatentStyleCount="156"> </w:LatentStyles> </xml><![endif]--><!--[if !mso]><object classid="clsid:38481807-CA0E-42D2-BF39-B33AF135CC4D" id=ieooui></object> <style> st1\:*{behavior:url(#ieooui) } </style> <![endif]--><style> <!-- /* Style Definitions */ p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal {mso-style-parent:""; margin:0in; margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:12.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";} h2 {mso-margin-top-alt:auto; margin-right:0in; mso-margin-bottom-alt:auto; margin-left:0in; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; mso-outline-level:2; font-size:18.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; font-weight:bold;} h3 {mso-margin-top-alt:auto; margin-right:0in; mso-margin-bottom-alt:auto; margin-left:0in; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; mso-outline-level:3; font-size:13.5pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; font-weight:bold;} a:link, span.MsoHyperlink {color:blue; text-decoration:underline; text-underline:single;} a:visited, span.MsoHyperlinkFollowed {color:purple; text-decoration:underline; text-underline:single;} p {mso-margin-top-alt:auto; margin-right:0in; mso-margin-bottom-alt:auto; margin-left:0in; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:12.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";} @page Section1 {size:8.5in 11.0in; margin:1.0in 1.25in 1.0in 1.25in; mso-header-margin:.5in; mso-footer-margin:.5in; mso-paper-source:0;} div.Section1 {page:Section1;} --> </style><!--[if gte mso 10]> <style> /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} </style> <![endif]--><o></o>

I don't know this strange fellow, but I wish him luck.

Whatever happened to portion control and exercise? Or, the old Roman method of post-gorge regurgitation? If Burger King served vomit bags and feathers with every meal, our country would be tons healthier.

We live in an instant results/instant gratification society. Human nature. People will always try and take the path of least resistance to any problem.

If i was obese, id probably be looking to do the same thing.

I mean there are certain names that serve as indicators for fatness; Gabe Newell, Scott Kurtz, Harry Knowles... but even then, I'm pretty surprised by the extent of his girth.

He's kind of the Matt Drudge of movie reviewers. The unique thing about his reviews is that he describes his experience and his thoughts from before going to the theater all the way through to the end of the movie so you get an impression of the mood he was in and how psyched he was to see the movie for use as extra context when evaluating the actual movie-specific part of the review. It's a neat concept, but sometimes it makes the review just go on too long.

fwiw... I had the Lap Band surgery about 2 years ago... its freaking awesome...

I was 350lbs and heading north of that.. so heavy that exercise was basically out of the question because it hurt..

anyway... 2 years later I'm down to 175lbs... I actually weigh less now than I did in high school.

its a sweet deal! MMMM sweets.... lol

Yea, ive read of few of them, but they drag on too long for my taste. I dont need to hear about what he ate for breakfast before he headed out to watch "No Country for Old Men"
