Hey everyone. It is extremely late and I gotta get to bed. A rash of phone calls from long lost friends who are not named Ian — “I'm a stupid motherfucker who doesn't tell his best friends when my first child is born” — Ryde. (I will explain that reference sometime this week.) So because of the late hour, this is going to be short.
Because of my irrational fear that I was losing weight too quickly, I decided to relax a bit this weekend. Saturday, I basically got drunk while watching the NFL draft. I know, I said I never drink alone, but something inside me made me want to get hammered on Saturday afternoon. It's been a long while since I had a good afternoon buzz and I think every once in awhile you need that.
Moderation is a topic I need to discuss at length sometime. Not surprisingly, my weekend relaxation led to some serious stomach pains. Apparently I am still too fucking dumb to avoid them. I really need to smarten up. Right now, I am really afraid of what will happen when I get down to 270. I went from one extreme (uncontrollable binging) to another (eating nearly nothing at all) overnight. Once I hit 270, I won't have to eat 1,500 calories per day. But I obviously can't go back to eating like I did before. So how do I find the happy medium? Goddammit, this is some hard shit. I have no clue what foods to add to my diet once this is all done. I need to take a long walk around evil Wal-Mart and figure out what would be good and what would be bad.
