I have lost a bit of weight recently. It was mostly through eating less, as well as running every day, but it’s mostly about the eating. It was dating weight that I lost. You know, the weight you gain when you are seeing someone and going out to eat and having drinks and doing all those social things that make the pounds creep up. I was running most days because I like running, but I wasn’t really able to mention that I was gaining weight. My ex-girlfriend would encourage me to eat another doughnut – my weakness – because that extra weight would make me less attractive to other women. This was mostly a joke, but not entirely.
