Note to Chris Pirillo: you’re not the only one who has gained weight. I usually keep myself fairly fit, but I used last year’s surgery as an excuse to eat whatever I wanted (and boy, did I ever eat what I wanted).
Sooo…I sit here with twenty pounds (!) of extra blubber, and today is the day I start making it disappear. This isn’t the first time I’ve lost that much weight, but I plan to make it my last. Truth is, as much as I enjoy bad food, life is simply better when I take care of myself – I feel better, I think better, I sleep better, and yes, sex is better. Trading all that for the short-term pleasure of pizza and beer (mmmm…pizza and beer) just isn’t worth it.
So do I plan to do it by following some trendy diet? Nope. I’m just going to eat less, eat better and exercise more (that plan may not sell many books or videos, but it does have the benefit of actually working).
I’ll blog about my progress along the way, but for now, I just wanted to publicly state my goal to force myself to stick to it – after all, I’ve just told a whole bunch of people that I’m going to lose weight, so it would be embarrassing to fail.
