I’ve totally lost it.

I’ve totally lost it. Weight, that is. Ha ha! Do you see what I did there? Someone might have assumed that I was in reference to my mind, when, in actuality, I was merely referring to the fact that I have lost weight. Losing weight is much better than losing your mind.

In a previous post here on r adam davidson.com, I had mentioned without compensation my favortism toward the iPhone application known as “Lose It”, which allows the user (according to the end-user agreement) to monitor caloric intake and exercise toward the goal of losing weight. Let me just say this: it works. While I’m not as successful as the cast of “The Biggest Loser”, I do weigh less than I did in my freshman year of college. Total weight lost as of today: 36.4 pounds. Yes, it’s another Jenny Craig success story, but without the Jenny Craig.

Another factor to consider is that of encouragement. When people say to me “you’ve lost weight”, that encourages me. It’s especially encouraging since they no longer mean it as a sarcastic joke. When others say “if Adam can do it, I can do it” and proceed to enter into a weight-loss goal program, it’s encouraging. Best of all is Emily, my wonderful wife, who believes that I can actually lose weight and feel great, without the aid of Mr. Atkins or Mr. Stomach Staple.
