black holes and working out
Wednesday, January 13, 2010      4 comments

I have decided that my office is located within a black hole. It's the only logical reason that time almost stands still all day at work, but then the few scarce hours I have to work out, cook, plan, and manage the rest of my life when I'm not ... Read more
Victory on an empty stomach

I am almost to my first milestone: I am half a pound away from 10 lbs gone. I'm really excited about this. It's not like 2 lbs where you can dismiss it as water - this is 10 real lbs. Ten lbs isn't water when it takes 6 weeks to come off. I ... Read more

I used to plateau at 188. I'm almost 5'9", and that didn't look too bad. A little plush, but I was OK with it most of the time. I was less than 20 lbs away from my ideal weight, and that was fine. I’d always fought with my weight, but I’d pr... Read more
