So, I’ve been at this whole diet thing for a little over a week now. (Yes, I know. “Diet” is a bad word. But it’s easier to say “lifestyle change involving journalling, eating less, and exercising more”. Can I just call it a diet? Just for this post? Pleeeeease?)

When I noticed a trackback on 19 Food-Free Friend Dates, I decided to take a peek. J commented that the list was “less guy oriented”. I’d say it was pretty unabashedly girly, myself. I decided to even the score. So here, for your buddy-bonding pleasure, is a list of munchless man-dates: Go-karting. I will never [...]
Do you blog about weight loss? Even when you’re not losing? What about when you’re not trying? For weeks now, maybe months, my attitude can best be described as that of a petulant child who refuses to eat, or sleep, or do anything else that will make them feel better. Except that all I want [...]
