Writing is more than anything a compulsion, like some people wash their hands thirty times a day for fear of awful consequences if they do not. It pays a whole lot better than this type of compulsion, but it is no more heroic.

The Illusion of Pounds


I had kind of a shock on Friday... I discovered that the scale in the gym at work has the metric system on it. And I learned that the 140 kg notch is right by the 300 pound notch. In fact, 140 kg is 308.65 pounds. Unbeknownst to me, that's the measure by which I've been gauging my weight loss - and that's how much I weigh.

I'm not devasted by the revelation... it's not much difference. But it was a psychological milestone beyond which I thought I'd passed. Alas... not so. So that's my new goal: 300 pounds by my birthday as a present to myself.

I hate those kind of setbacks... the purely mental ones, you know. I don't deal as well with those as I do with physical ones. You're inspiring me, though.
