And it sucks. I’ve always been slim, and at 6’ and 168lbs I suppose I still am. But I’m a whole 13 lbs heavier than when I shipped off to basic training many years ago and almost all of that extra weight seems to have gone straight to my gut. I was at a party last week and someone poked my belly because I was stretching the buttons on my slim-fit shirt. I decided I need to do something I’ve never had to do before, lose 5 lbs.
It’s only been 4 days and, man, it’s miserable being hungry. I can’t for the life of my figure out how anyone manages to lose weight. I have a new respect for anyone who’s ever been on a diet.
