Week 17: lost 1/4 pound
Week 18: lost 2.5 pounds

Instead of that, I have placed them on the floor next to my computer table. Now when I’m downloading something, and getting bored, instead of getting up and walking to the kitchen, I’ll get up and lift some weights. At least, that’s the idea. We shall see if it works.
Halloween night I went to a haunted bookstore. Besides fun things like tarot card readings, and ouija boards, they had a 15% discount on all books. I found a collection of poetry by Edgar A Guest. Within I found a very inspirational poem: Can’t
