Better And Better

If you don't draw yours, I won't draw mine. A police officer, working in the small town that he lives in, focusing on family and shooting and coffee, and occasionally putting some people in jail.

New Year's Resolution. I've got a plan.

It involves shedding 1/6 of my mass.
And not talking about it.
Because honestly? Nobody wants to read a diet blog.

I love your attitude... a resolution plan... not a list.

you might find this interesting.. my friend's take on Practical optimism
she talks about specific goals to get you to he big ones.

I have been working on a resolution attitude, not so much a list today....

Get busy living or get busy dying.

Whatever! You'd be surprised in who you might inspire, and where you might find inspiration. I rather liked AD's "chub-o-meter" or whatever he has running in the upper port side of his blog page.

Its always easy to justify slacking off to yourself (diet, exercise, etc...). But once you make your goal public... you get help holding yourself to it.

Either way, good luck! I'm cheering for you (and would appreciate some cheering my way,...)

Yeah. Been on that for awhile. Been doing OK, slow and steady an' all that. And NOT been boring the readers with it...

Thank you so much for that.

Few things are more tedious than listening to others detail what they (don't) eat and why -- or more uncomfortable than sharing a table with someone who goes on and on and on and on about why you shouldn't be enjoying your meal, either.

Well, as someone who occasionally posts fitness-related content, let me tell you why I do it.

It keeps me honest.

There's good motivation in detailing the hows and whys of why you're depriving yourself, and how good you feel when it's all done. Committing it to print is an affirmation of the process.

If it's tedious, don't read it. It's that simple. I'm not breaking into your house and putting a gun to your head to make you read my latest diet advice.

And some folks have been motivated by my words and descriptions to lose weight themselves.

T'other thing is, if I fall off the wagon and start gaining weight back, I can read through my fitness posts and see what was working for me.

Also, there's the positive reinforcement angle - you start posting updates of how much weight you've lost, you'll have folks (like myself) complimenting you on a job well done.

Have a few good months, with lots of positive comments, you start getting competitive with yourself to beat last month - stay on the wagon.

There are reasons for posting about it other than mere vanity, IMHO...

I understand, Jay G. I just don't want to put it on my blog. I do track it, by sending myself an email every morning.

I've got under 400 and I hope over the next ten years to get under 200.

And I don't believe in products like Liposene..... Or Extense either!

I gotta do it, too, only I need to shed more than 1/6. Apparently we're going to Disneyworld this summer. Did you know they put that thing in a tropical swamp?

I'd tan, too, if I thought it would keep me from burning as badly. Sadly, I know better.
