A couple people commented to me about how yesterday I started including my actual weight in my update about my diet, as opposed to whiting it out before posting (e.g., here). Why? For one thing, it felt a little silly posting these updates about my weekly weight change for anyone in the world to see and yet keep my weight itself some secret. More importantly, since the last post was about having lost 10% of my original weight, it felt especially silly to post the amount of weight I had lost and that I was down 10% and then pretend that one could not deduce what my starting weight approximately was.
Irresistible related anecdote: When I was a junior in high school, I dated a woman from an even smaller school in a nearby town. Unfortunately and unexpectedly, she got a 10 on her ACT and was sufficiently embarrassed about this that she didn't tell any of her friends to know and made me swear I wouldn't tell anyone. She did, however, tell some of her friends what my ACT score was, and she also told somebody what the average of our two scores was. Then, she got very angry with me because suddenly everybody knew she had gotten a 10, and, since she hadn't told anyone, it had to have been me.
Addendum to irresistible related anecdote: Actually, I would be doing this Woman From My Past wrong if I didn't note that she really was a good deal smarter than what one might infer from either the anecdote or her ACT score. I've wondered what happened to her, but I haven't been able to find out from other sources and she has a Googleproof name. Another thing about her, though: her father owned a bank. I hadn't known that somebody could do that, just one person, own a whole bank, even just a small-town bank.
