I have discovered the secret to weight loss

Get an energetic dog and take him out at least 2-3 times a day (cause he goes out 5-6 times a day).

I lost 5 pounds in the last week which makes me very happy indeed (since they are the 5 pounds I gained over christmas and didn't lose till this week). My stomach is visibly smaller. I should start taking measurements or something to actually track that, which is always fun (as long as I'm losing weight anyways).

Both of us have been going to sleep at 9pm and waking up at 6:30. Last night we went to sleep at 8 and woke up at 5am. I guess those are the consequences of going from 3 years of nothing more vigorous than climbing up a flight of stairs to running around with my dog every day for at least an hour. And I do literally run with him for at least a block per walk. I'm sure I look ridiculously foolish, but who cares.

My legs are going to look farking awesome for my wedding. And I will not be ashamed to wear a bathing suit on the cruise.

So here it is ladies and gentleman! The secret to weight loss. DOGS: Get one and stay fit for the next 10-12 years.

(disclaimer: Will not work if dog is kept in a fenced in yard.)


  1. Just another benefit and gift from man's best friend.

  2. Aww, you have so needed a dog ( or as we say up north, dawg).
    Look it's other Moon woman.

  3. Crap! There's my problem - I have a fenced yard (and live in a marginal neighborhood, so I wouldn't walk a dog after dark.)
    I'm so glad you and Barkley have bonded so well!
    Cruise? You're going on a cruise?

  4. oh yeah we're going to Rome for a few days and then on a cruise of the Mediterranean sea this summer with B's parents! it's kinda like our honeymoon...but with B's parents. :) It starts in Rome and then goes to Croatia, Turkey, Greece for 3 days, Sicily, and the back to Italy. :)

  5. Keep up the excercise. How about working out, you must have gym you can use on campus. Swimming?

    Wow, getting up at 5 Am could be fun ;)

  6. grad students have to pay for the gym on campus...i used to be a member, but never went, so I canceled my membership.

    I like my current regiment of walking with intermittent jogging for 1-2 hours a day, there's no way I'm going to a gym on top of this. :)

  7. running after buses also works. my bus is always just pulling in or leaving.
