I had someone unfriend me shortly after I announced I was going to try losing weight again this year. (No huge loss, it wasn't someone I was amazingly close to - and perhaps if it was, zie would already have realized what I'm about to explain, anyway).

I don't expect to wind up a size 4 at the end of all this. Hell, I don't expect to wind up a size 14. I've always been big, and I believe I will always be big. I just want to change how big.

I haven't seen 200lbs since shortly after I graduated high school. It would absolutely rock my face off to be there again before my 20th reunion. That's 30 months (give-or take, assuming the reunion is in the summer) to lose 160 pounds. I CAN DO THIS.

I just joined [livejournal.com profile] projectoneyear, an LJ community started by Dave Wright of Todd and Penguin fame. In addition to drawing comics, Dave writes a newspaper column, and was just challenged by his boss: Lose 100 pounds over the course of the next year, and get a 1-week trip to the Bahamas.

I don't have a fancy trip waiting for me at the end of the year.

I just have the rest of my life.

See more progress on: lose weight
