Just a short note to fulfill my promise (already broken once) to weigh myself every Wednesday and tell the entire Internet about my triumph or humiliation. This week, by some miracle, it’s a triumph. As I stood on our digital bathroom scale, it swung up and down between 89.3 kilos and 89.1. But when it had stabilized, it read 89.1. THIS WAS MY GOAL for this week! I assure you I stood straight on the scale, not trying to influence the result — at least not consciously. (I guess everybody knows that, with a little experimenting, you can usually figure out a way to shift your weight on the scale to get you a lower number.)
Eighty-nine point one kilograms (or 196.4 lb). Yay! Next Wednesday’s goal is 88.5….
