Getting with the Program
The problem with a program of diet and exercise is that as readers of this blog, you can expect to be bored out of your mind. I'm fond of explaining to people that life-threatening illnesses make reading a blog really compelling. They give life, and the blog, a plot. Plot is usually sorely lacking in blogs.
I suppose if I set a weight loss goal, that would create a plot also, but unlike the arcane nature of a medical emergency, I will have no high tech medical experiences involving strange acronyms or charismatic doctors. Everybody knows about weight loss. If by chance you don't, then you have a marvelous metabolism and no television. I would like to find a weight loss program that was exotic. (Chris Barzak did. He moved to Japan and lost weight. He also had lots of other incredible experiences.) Unfortunately, moving to Japan doesn't look like a viable option for a weight loss program right now.
So any day now I will make a decision about a new name for the blog and start writing snappy blog entries about diet and exercise.
I am not willing to post my weight or my measurements. I'm not even sure that we'll ever actually start a program. We are thinking about it. We really are.
