Tam took a picture of me at TacCon last year, and I’ve been embarrassed to show it because, well, I look really, really fat in the picture. And I was.
I’ve managed to lose about 15 pounds or so in the six months since TacCon, and while that is nothing compared to other people I know who’ve lost 40+ pounds this year, I’m managed to do it without any major changes in my life. I’ve cut out pretty much all sweets except for the occasional spot of ice cream, switched to drinking bourbon and scotch instead of beer, and I walk about two miles every evening.
Am I where I want to be? No. I still need to work on my flexibility and upper body strength, but it’s nice to know with a little effort, I can make myself slightly less out of shape than usual.
