How to do simple graphs in WordPress

August 22, 2007

I’ve recently added a small graph of my weight in my sidebar as well as a page for additional graphs such as BMI and strength training (total weight moved).  They aren’t the prettiest graphs to look at in my opinion (I’ve been looking at too much Office 2007 lately) but the options seemed to be […]



August 21, 2007

I’ve become a contributor at FatBloggers.net, a group of eleven bloggers all working to build a support network to help achieve our goals.  This description is from our about page: The premise is this: Any time I’ve been successful in losing weight, it’s been because I’ve been accountable to somebody else for it. The more accountable […]


Confession Time

August 20, 2007

In yesterday’s weekly update I told you I gained 2 pounds.  And I did.  That isn’t why I’m here confessing. I’m here confessing because I almost didn’t report the truth.  I felt bad about eating and drinking too much on Saturday and I was really disappointed when I stepped on the scale on Sunday morning, […]


Weekly Update - 8/19/07

August 19, 2007

Diet starting weight: 295 Week starting weight: 291 Today’s weight: 293 Week weight lost: -2 lbs Total weight lost: 2 lbs Obviously gaining 2 pounds in a week is a big disappointment to me.  However, as I have written recently I am trying to focus on my decisions and not worry about the short term variance that is going […]


Building New Habits

August 16, 2007

I wrote a post yesterday called Losing Weight Is Like Playing Poker that I fancied to be a pretty good analogy.  That is, until I read The Pound Slayer’s Flying a New Kite.  Wow, color me impressed. In the early days of bridge building, step one was to fly a kite from one side of a […]

Losing Weight Is Like Playing Poker

August 15, 2007

There are 2 kinds of poker players* - those who focus on the results of their actions and those who focus on the decisions taken to get them there, regardless of the result.  This quote from World Champion Greg Raymer, from an interview by Wil Wheaton, says it well: I guess I’d have to say […]


More Good Calacanis Diet Advise

August 13, 2007

I’m pointing to another relevant Jason Calacanis posting, diet tips for business travellers, because business travel is one of my killer weaknesses and Jason has posted some good thoughts on the subject.  I suspect Jason travels far more than I do (I average a couple of trips a month) so I value his opinion and suggestions. […]


Weekly Update - 8/12/07

August 12, 2007

Diet starting weight: 295 Week starting weight: 292 Today’s weight: 291 Week weight lost: 1 lb Total weight lost: 4 lbs This was my first full week on my big weight loss journey.  This first week was not about losing weight, it was about picking up some good habits, getting some education, and most importantly, […]


Identifying My Weaknesses

August 11, 2007

I don’t think Jason Calacanis was the original fatblogger, but I think it may have been from him where I first heard the term.  I’m jealous because he’s at my goal weight of 185 right now.  He writes about 4 things he has learned about losing weight and as I am just starting out I find […]
