    Default ZOMG!!! Am I FAT or WHAT?!?

    My beloved brought home a new bathroom scale, as our old one hadn't been working properly for some time.

    In the kitchen with all my clothes on I weighed a cool 230. In the bathroom this morning in the absolute belly-sagging, gouge-your-eyes-out nude I still came in at 226.4. This is on a broad-shouldered 5'10" frame, but still... it's truly fifty pounds heavier than I could be, and still be healthy.

    This event has made me feel anxious and unhappy.

    Therefore I crave cheesecake.

    Shit happens.

    You aren't your body weight. Unless you're concerned about your health, forget about it.


    Good man, Oberon.

    Good man, Oberon.
    At the age of 41 and leading a sedentary lifestyle, I need to either get that sh!t under control, or plan for a cardiac event or the onset of Type II diabetes within the next decade.

    SRSLY.

    Yeah, you're overweight. If you want to lose it, start jogging and start eating consciously. Lifting weights is a good idea, too, and focusing on major muscles (legs, back, chest) will jumpstart your metabolism, and make you objectively sexier and worth more as a person. It's been proven by philosophers. G'luck!

    After Thanksgiving, then.

    In good conscience, I can't suggest differently.

    Dietitian. See one. My doc referred me recently and since adjusting my eating habits to follow the "food pyramid" (I use a printed spreadsheet as a scorecard for all that) I'm down about 10lb from what I was just over a month ago. (I'm about 5'11" and......... quite a bit heavier than you. Course I'm also 26 so I got time.)]

    The exercise is great, but, really, the diet is the #1 part of it all.

    I'd rather throw it at you.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I know, right? Because we all think values are subjective rather than objective. How could an object, like your body, acquire a label, you ask? I can't really explain it either, but it has something to do with the words "quantum," "epistemology," and "nachos."
