don't toy with me, scale!  
When I stepped on the scale yesterday, I was surprised to see that despite my winter of poor eating and little physical exercise, I had actually lost weight, down five pounds to 225. It's probably just muscle weight sadly, although K. says my sides are slimmer. Maybe my body responds better to a high meat diet than I give it credit for as long as I eat plenty of veggies as well. Perhaps I'll concentrate my dieting energy on reducing my sugar intake instead, a huge task as I've gotten quite addicted this winter. I kind of like viewing myself as some sort of hack high school science experiment. Cycling in was so much easier today and it's already lifting me out of the winter doldrums.

Current Mood: BE (225)

Man, I've been riding my bike 10 miles a day (5 to and 5 back) out of necessity for the last year. It was rough at first, but even when I have a car, I prefer to bike. It can be a bit rough on the knees if you're not careful, but it's a great way to get around and my wife enjoys how my legs have developed.

I also used to be fairly overweight, and I've found that cutting way back on the sugar has been a huge boon. For me, it's not a question of dieting, but of diet; reasonable portions, not gorging, etc. Also, the exercise. But mostly it was cutting back on the sugar. Turns out that drinking 64-128 ounces of soda a day made me fat. Hum. Go figure.

Nice. I do seven miles a day, but only four days a week (work at home on fridays). Yeah, sugar is mean. Fortunately, I'm not that into soda, but I work in an office that is always full of donuts, cake, pie, and candy. I need to just force myself to avoid it.
