In a longish life as a professional writer, I have heard a thousand masterpieces talked out over bars, restaurant tables and love seats. I have never seen one of them in print. Books must be written, not talked.

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.
