I weighed myself this morning and am down six-and-a-half pounds since July 2. For most people that shouldn’t be that big of a deal. I mean: it’s not as if I jumped on Facebook to let everyone know (although people certainly post a lot more mind-numbing content than that.)
Yet here I am sitting in front of a keyboard.
So what’s the secret? (And I’ve no doubt someone is probably thinking, “Please don’t say diet and exercise. Please don’t say diet and exercise.”)
Sorry, but that’s exactly what I’m going to say. And seriously? Is it really a secret at this point?
One thing I’m not going to do is tout the benefits of Atkins, South Beach, going vegan or any of the other latest dietary fads. While there are certainly benefits to those diets – as well as the Wheat Belly Diet and Paleo-Diet – I’m not going to be that douche on a soap box claiming that if I can do it, you can do it too.
Essentially, I haven’t really done anything yet except hopefully start on the path to doing what doctors and experts have said for years: eat healthier.
