Weight and Stuff Report – 1 January 2011

Well, I suppose the start of the year is as good a time as any to revive the daily report thingies, which have been taking a break since November. I think they fled the country to avoid the snow, but they’re back now, and I’ll try to make them as near to daily as I can.

I’m just a wee bit lighter than I was yesterday, and a wee bit heavier than I was a year ago, which given the general lack of exercise, wine drinking and food eating, is not quite as bad as it might have been. I aim to make some effort to improve on that.

As a reminder, here’s a picture:



Quite apart from being a mildly diverting indication that somebody might have been going a bit faster than the sign suggests, or more likely had a bit of a friction deficit on the snow that had covered the area, it’s also a useful number.

That’s how many pounds I need to lose to begin to get back to a moderately sensible weight. Losing more would be a Good Thing, but around 30 is a good target – I’d still be quite heavy, but I am big boned, dammit![1]
