day 6, weight: 166 lbs
my schizophrenic weight machine spaced-out this morning reporting 172 lbs. no way i thought. so for today i weighed myself before bedtime at 166 lbs, a number i’ll run with for today. yesterday i thought of getting a realistic sense of what 150 lbs is truly like to move about. last time i tried even 100 lbs was quite heavy to lift. immediately i thought of my muscles that handle the daily drudge of carting this weight. as an inducement it might be encouraging to design a way to slowly remove weights from a weight dummy to get a better feel.

Nature magazine has this published research paper connecting the two.

a Qunol CoQ10 bedtime swig
