A Year Later, We’re All Losing It

Dancing at our wedding after having lost a lot of weight

Losing “it” meaning weight of course
And maybe our minds as evidenced by my wife’s dance moves.

I’ve been out of the blogging arena for far too long. However, my interest in health and nutrition has not faded. I know I owe you all so much information since I haven’t truly updated this blog in over a year! But everytime I had an hour to write, I’d think… wow it’s been so long… the task of summing everything that happened in the last year, all the things I wanted to write about from the beginning, all the things I’ve experienced since then, all the things I’ve learned from research and self experimentation and tracking. Where do I even begin? The task seemed so daunting. And each day that I didn’t write, the task became more scary. So much pressure! What do I write and what do I leave out for now?

My wife (yes, we got married, finally!) knows that the one of the few things on my mind day and night is nutrition. It’s come to the point where we’d go on date nights, or spend a nice night together at home, and she’d start it off with “OK, let’s make a deal, no talk about nutrition tonight.” And I’d struggle to find a different topic to talk about. I need a different outlet (this blog) other than nutritional word vomit towards my wife. So here goes… just winging it! I apologize for the lack of brevity… but you should know me better than that by now! But I will try to keep it at least semi reasonable :)

Or if you are truly too lazy or busy to read, you can just scroll through the pics to see some of our progress. But you shouldn’t be lazy. It’s not good for you! :P

Vanishing Act

Where'd You Go?

It’s been a good 9 months since I’ve written anything on this blog. And I apologize for keeping you waiting. Over the last year, I’ve had a lot of readers and lots of friends and family messaging me on Facebook with questions etc. I hope I’ve inspired people to explore the topic further than what they’ve found in my blog so far. I’ve also gotten a couple of ping backs (references to my blog on other sites – primarily forums) and this last one (I’m looking at you, certain Mark’s Daily Apple forum/journal person!) really encouraged me to, at the very least, let you all know that I haven’t given up. I’m still going strong and believe in this diet as the optimal way of eating and living a healthier and longer life. And I definitely still intend to continue writing.

The Journey To Blogland

The Beginning

This is my coming out of the diet closet…

The first article. I guess it is only appropriate to explain the reason for this blog (if you will take the time and read it), and how I got here. So instead of bantering, I’ll just get right to it.
