“Unless you have some plan for selling that valuable thing you got so cheaply, what difference does it make what it’s ‘worth?’ The only way you’re ever going to extract any value from it is to use it.”

31 Days of Weight Loss

July 30, 2010 » Life

Thirty-one days ago I decided to lose some weight.

I haven’t made any huge changes in my diet, just cutting down on how much I eat, when I eat it and what it is. Soda is nearly gone, as are sweet coffee drinks. I no longer graze, and if I do need a snack I lean towards something healthier. For example I started keeping trail mix at work instead of hitting up the vending machine for a candy bar or something.

A month later I’m down about six pounds. It’s not a super smooth curve, but it’s gradual and it’s easy. I’ll keep on trucking, and I need to add some exercise in there, so we’ll see what the next few months hold.
