Well, probably not according to some people. But my scale says so. I came to Japan at a sizable 92 kg and am currently hovering around 83 kg. So that is progress although last October I was more in the 75 kg range. Stress can do a number on you. So can bad habits.
I realized I was snacking too much. So I looked at my spending (I track every single yen.) and calculated what I spend on snacks over a month.
I decided no snacks for the summer.
I took the money out of my fun budget, and spent it all on Steam gifts for friends. Now every time I go to buy a snack, I'll look at my budget and whoops, it's all gone. Sorry, future me. But some of my friends got a nice little surprise this morning, and the happy messages were sweeter than chocolate.
Well, no. That's bullshit. But it did feel pretty good.
