About a year ago I tried fatblogging. While it was a total failure from a weight-loss perspective, I did get a fun mention in an LA Times article written by Alex Pham. [Correction: here is the right link to Pham’s article]
(Evidently my mother in law, who lives in LA, was mortified, not amused, by the article).
So, who do I bump into at EconSM, but Alex Pham herself. When we saw each other’s nametags we both had a good laugh. She very kindly said that I wasn’t as fat as she thought I would be.
Our chance meeting was timely. This past weekend I declared war (and I really mean it this time!) on my ever-expanding waistline, and had an official weigh-in: 224 pounds, a good 30 pounds over my playing weight!
Wish me luck, I’ll need it.
