...just thought I'd make it a public proclamation to solidify my seriousness about it.
It's been over a year since I really put any effort into losing weight, and things have been pretty stable for me. For the past two weeks I've nearly eliminated high fructose corn syrup from my diet and I think it's helped a lot with my hunger control. So I'm going a step further and doing the calorie counting thing for the month to drop my weight below 230 lbs. Then I'll return to maintenance mode for a while before doing further work.
I'm not looking for replies or encouragement, just putting this out there as a motivational hack.
