Resolution 2011

The end of the year brings new opportunities for goal-setting and evaluation. In addition to recommitting to covenants and life-choices, I have a temporal resolution for 2011.

I now publicly announce that my goal is to be more healthy and lose weight. To track my weight-loss progress, I am adding a little graph to my blog (on the right-hand side) that shows how much I've lost, starting today! The zero point will be my current weight, with [hopefully] negative values indicating weight loss as time progresses (only the most recent ten entries will be visible).

Here is the graph (it will show more detail as time progresses and I add more data):

Here's what I looked like on Sunday (26 Dec 2010).

Accountability. It's a dangerous thing. If I fail—and I don't plan to—it will be in plain sight as the curve goes above the baseline.

So, what are your resolutions?

Update: 01 Apr 2011
Three months in and 30 lb down! (I splurged a bit mid-march around spring break... I should have heeded the advice: "Beware the ides of March!")

Here's me on 02 Apr:
