Fat as Puzzle

ImageMy friend Ross who is supporting me on my Health Rally, recommended this blog post, “Thinking about Diets and Other Complex Matters” by Bill Gurley, a VC at Benchmark Capital.  It’s a good post, and has great references.  I’ve already downloaded, “Why We Get Fat” on Audible.

I think there is a lot of truth to the complexity issue he’s pointing out.  That there are no simple solutions to weight loss (or gain for that matter).  I’m beginning to think I need to try every possible theory that is out there.

Even though it doesn’t make logical sense, I find my weight really fluctuates day to day, regardless of what I eat or the exercise I do.  A few days ago I was .5 away from losing twenty pounds, but the next day, I had gained 1.5 (for no apparent reason).  So, I’m still battling with that last pound.  I should probably just stop weighing myself.

I will say this, however.  I feel better.  I’ve had a tough time with acid reflux over the past few years (tmi, I know). But, it’s essentially GONE.  Really gone.  I have seen other dramatic improvements in other bodily functions, but I won’t delve into those details.  So, if for no other reason than to feel better, I’m motivated to keep reinventing myself.
