I am overweight. This displeases me.
I weighed myself every week through 2006 and 2007, and then my record started getting spotty in 2008 (to be fair, we bought a house and stuff). Keeping a log as to how well I was doing seems necessary to actually losing weight, but in the past it would just depress me because the fluctuations seemed random, independent of how “good” I thought I was that week. When I was in Weight Watchers in college I did lose weight, but counting points for every single meal and budgeting them and stuff made me pretty miserable.
So! New plan. Back to weekly weighings. At most one soda a day, and not at lunch. Exercise more, somehow, even though it’s difficult when we don’t get home until 7. Stop mindless snacking.
Unrelated: I’m no fan of Rice’s tuition increases, but I’m glad they’re at least raising the no-loan threshold and lowering the cap on loans in aid packages.
