Sorry I've been gone lately. I've been writing like a mad man, and I haven't wanted to break for blogging.
The stats are these:
Weight: As of yesterday I was down to 230. That's six pounds since we started! And, even better, I've been able to do it without significantly altering my lifestyle. It's essentially been a matter of portion control, and a lack of sugary drinks. Here's what I especially like about this: I feel like I'm learning how to eat better overall. For example, a week ago I ate a very large meal--about normal for things I used to eat--and it completely made me sick. So, I feel that, once I've lost the weight, I'll be able to maintain it. So, yippee.
Writing: As of yesterday, after seven writing days, I'm 38,000 words into this new book. I'm mucho pleased.
