Holding steady at 259 pounds this week, still showing an overall loss of 38 pounds!
There has been a lot of blogosphere chatter about dieting the last couple of days, not all of it encouraging. Jane Galt linked to this piece which seems to pretty much say that if you try to lose weight, you’re going to fail. And even if you do succeed somehow, it isn’t going to help you much. In fact, losing the weight may just kill you quicker.
Bless her, Jane takes issue with these findings, at least anecdotally. Meanwhile, Dr. Helen chimes in with a slightly different take.
Count on our old buddy Reason to put everything into perspective. Putting the issues of diet and weight aside for a moment, having excess fat around your middle causes inflamation, which can kill you six different ways. At least.
Besides, I found that I rather liked actually fitting in my airline seat when I flew a couple weeks ago.
I’m sticking with this thing, and that’s that.
