Year-End Update

I went home for the holidays with the intention of eating right and beginning to lose some weight. I did eat. I ate reasonably. I also came down with pneumonia, and that helped me moderate my eating. I lost nine pounds.

I'm still not feeling great, but I plan to use this jump start to keep losing and eating more reasonably than I have in the past. I don't like the physical symptoms I've been experiencing over the last few months, and I suspect they're entirely attributable to excess weight. From this, I perceive I just may be ready to do what it takes to effectively change my lifestyle and attain a healthier body weight.

At the beginning of December, I had a hundred pounds to lose. As of this morning, I have 91 to go. I look forward to continuing the journey with each of you.

Oh Jean, so sorry to hear you've been ill, but yes, use that as a jump-start on a healthier you in 2008! (I just typed in 1998. I don't know where I've been for 10 years...)

I hope you are recovering and feeling healthier.

What a rip for Christmas, and the hard way to lose nine pounds! I hope you're feeling up to specs soon!
