happy - got thru day 2 - better then day one now down 7.8 pounds. just need a great day three. feeling good / confident of finally getting back on this. i fully expect to lose 15 pounds in the first week. i've done this enough to know the numbers.

not perfect (i.e. under 600 calories) but i did OK, got home and didn't over-eat. also decided to simply state the pounds without the hundreds decimal (hahaha) just seems a little more manageable :)

need a "perfect day" today and hope to keep that up till i'm back down...

not going well - i actually had a couple days getting close then one full day "perfect", then the xMas collapse. i'm trying to get it going again today and i need to start weighing in again daily. this morning i realized that the last time i was successful (prior to africa) i was 100% dedicated to the effort. i was living and breathing weight loss and my whole life revolved around it. since kenya i have been dedicated almost entirely to the obligations that grew from going to kenya. in fact they have expanded to include somalia as well and the obligations are not going to lessen any time soon - in fact ever, but neither do i want to simply gain all the weight back...

for now i hope to get back on the diet today. 100% on it. worry about tomorrow tomorrow.

trying again :)

just have to get back on it. having gained back as much as i have gives me the opportunity to test a crazy theory, that exercise has no effect on weight loss. i have good reason to believe this and if there is anything positive in gaining back some of the weight loss this may be it.

it's been a long time :)

It's been a long time - this project is still alive. but my life has moved so dramatically in a whole new direction. my weight is way up right now and I have not ben running consistantly. i hope to get started again (maybe tomorow). i need to start bloging again too. right here and also on the site for my other film. it's called the road to punda milia.

that project has supeceded this one as the making of that film and the entire scope of the project and all that entails is in fact the "living big" aspect of this project... it's so much "bigger" then i ever DREAMED! and even though my wieght is back up a bit - i'm very happy with life right now - in nearly all it's aspects :)
