I decided this week it was about time I got off my butt and made a few life changes, including to what I eat and how active I am. I realised - like Patton Oswalt eloquently says - that "I gotta lose some goddamn weight."
I'm not doing any faddish diets or anything. I'm well aware that these don't work long term. With a bit of guidance, I'm setting out to make some permanent improvements to my food choices and eating habits.
It's been a challenge so far, as the above cartoon attests, but I feels like it's off to a pretty good start. Check in with me in 12 weeks time, however, and we'll see how I'm going.
Change is difficult. But for me it's time to struggle up out of the chair and make one.
