Obligatory weightloss resolution

Graham (and comment team) at Leaving Munster and Brian at The Beautiful Heresy — two religion bloggers I follow — have announced their weight-gain agita and a resolution to loose the same.

Last year was good for weight loss: I have kept off more than thirty pounds, but yesterday’s weigh-in shows I have another 19.5 pounds to meet my own goal, which I would like to reach before my 40th birthday at midyear. (The doctor would like another 10 pounds on top of that but I’ve never been that weight in adulthood, so I’m not considering that yet.)

I have other New Year’s goals — some personal, some private — and two are related to a new public Internet ministry. More about those as they mature.
