THE KARL DIET
1) Walk one or two miles a day
2) Eat less
Thats the plan! I've been doing it for about two or three weeks now, and I *think* that I'm seeing some preliminary results. Granted, it's not a FEEL THE BURN LOOSE 50 POUNDS IN THREE WEEKS!!!!!
diet plan, but I think the methodology is sound. Burn more calories, take in less calories. Pretty logical, if you ask me.
My goal is to get under 200 pounds. I'm probably hovering around 240 right now (I don't know for sure, because I can't bring myself to get on a scale -- it's too scary). Right now, I think the motivation for my diet is at least 4 parts vanity to one part health, which is silly, because it really should be the opposite. I *know* that I'll never be thin or slender even by a generous margin, yet something compels me to not look like a complete lard-ass. This is good, as it may help with my health in the long run. Bad motivation, perhaps, yet good results. Cie la vie.
In other news, I had a good, long talk with Dan today. We must have talked about everything. In fact, we talked about so much that we really don't need to be friends anymore, since we've pretty much covered it all. ;-)
My mom and my aunt would like to scatter grandma's ashes at a resort-casino she frequented. I don't think thats a bad idea, but I did point out to my mom that perhaps grandma's still-living brothers and sisters would like to retain some of the ashes as well. My mom was surprised at this mention, as if it was an incredible shock to learn that we werent grandma's only family.
I work for the next four days. I'll enjoy the larger paycheck, but not the larger workload. Funny how that works, isn't it?
Thank you to all who left condolences in my comments section, and those who thought and prayed for me in silence. Thank you. Really, from my heart to yours. Thank you.
