from aspen: be strong, jeremy!

Day 11 of Online Weight Watchers. The posh food here has been eroding my will. After being good at dinner last night and this morning, I broke down and had not only a larger lunch than what I had planned, but then a brownie (gasp!) on top of that. You would think I would be motivated by being at a health conference and feeling like, every time somebody brings up the obesity epidemic in the US, they are talking about me personally. Then again, you might think a health conference wouldn't be continually serinading its participants with food.
That said, as far as I can tell, it seems possible from my travels that people who study health may be less likely to be obese even than other academics (who, I think, are plainly less likely to be obese than Americans as a whole, although probably not less than the population of persons with postsecondary degrees as a whole.)
