Weight loss

I’ve written a little about this subject, but it’s kinda huge.

On June 13, 2021, I weighed 208.6 pounds. This wasn’t my peak weight in my life, but it was my recent peak. And it. was. a. lot.

I felt fat. I looked fat. I was in pain. My back hurt. My knees hurt.

Now, on December 22, 2021, I weigh 167.4. I’ve lost 41.2 pounds. That’s 1.5 pounds per week. Since the middle of June.

I started with Noom – a kinda cool, exceedingly hyped app. But after about two months, I’d gotten all I needed from Noom (which boiled down to an understanding of calorie density).

But over time, I came to understand that – given how my brain works – Noom’s vaunted psychology wouldn’t work so well for me. What works for me, it turns out, is… spreadsheets.

I think if I had a different orientation to the universe, I might well try to make some money off all this. But. Here it is, in all its glory: my weight loss, in charts and tables.
