End of November update

Six months behind me with six months to go! This diet actually seems to be getting easier too. Go figure.

My official weight is unchanged from last month at 156 pounds. I'm happy with that weight and I'm now used to my new 'shape'. I still need to tone up and build some muscle mass back but that can wait for another day.

The fear I was developing that I was going to waste away to nothing has subsided ... I think I've found my equilibrium. That feels great ... truly it does.

That's the good news and now for the bad ...... it's cold being skinny!

For as long as I can remember I've always had a good heater. I'm the guy that wore shorts and a T-shirt in the middle of winter. I was rarely cold. Those days appear to be long gone I'm afraid. I've come to realize that I never really had a good heater ... what I had was good insulation. That extra weight was keeping me warm.

I'm too much of an energy conservationist to turn up the heat at home so I'm doing what I've told the rest of the family to do in the past ... Put on a sweater!

C'est la vie. In the end I'd rather be chilly than chubby.

  1. and I thought you were just a bit strange wearing shorts in the cold!

    a housecoat over clothing (at home!) is good insulation against the chills...I don't turn up the heat either. I rarely get complaints from the kids...cold seems to affect the parents' aging body systems much more
