Renewing my Passover resolution Apr 4, 2010

Last year, during Passover, I resolved to diet.  And diet.  And keep dieting, until I was not overweight anymore.

I had privately resolved at New Year's to get more exercise, but joining a gym hadn't really helped much.  I felt healthier, but I didn't get to the gym as much as I would have liked to, and I hated doing it.  I had recently read The Hacker's Diet by John Walker, which had given me hope that really transformative dieting - the kind where you go on it until you're not overweight anymore - was even possible, and some ideas about how to do it.  I downloaded a calorie-tracking iPhone application and started counting everything I ate.

Much to my surprise, calorie counting actually worked.  It worked so well that since last Passover, I have lost 45 pounds.

Unfortunately, February-April is convention season.  My diet has gone somewhat by the wayside and I've gained back 5 of those.  That's why I'm announcing here publicly: I am renewing my Passover resolution. Over the last year I did pretty well, but the work is not yet done.
