This is a test post from Obsidian—don’t judge me, dammit.

And to the person I have to blame for this: you know exactly who you are, and awesome work. ;)

Good news: I’m down to 244lbs.
Bad news: I’m sick and haven’t walked in three days.

If I have to break out rice cakes and water to not lose progress, I’m gonna be pissed. At least I’ve tested negative for COVID, though my view in the mirror is no less flattering.

Caved today and bought myself some new jeans, a belt, underwear, and a couple of t-shirts. Seeing the totals at the till, I was quickly reminded of the fact that weight loss is expensive when parts of your wardrobe no longer fit.

Screenshot of my home and lock screens, both featuring the same steampunk-inspired wallpaper. Home Screen has only widgets: medium Weather at top, two small widget stacks showing calendar on the left and Things on the right, and on the bottom a medium Drafts widget. The dock has from left to right: Notes, Mail, Safari, and Messages. Lock Screen has an extra bold digital clock font, with Weather conditions beside the date, and Things today widget + Things new task + add to Drafts widgets below.

Welcome to the duality of weight loss, where you can be both ecstatic and irritated that your pants don’t fit.

This does not inspire my confidence in humanity.

Screenshot from the App Store, showing this week’s top apps: Snapchat, Tinder, Discord, Hinge Dating App, and Gmail. I weep for our collective future.

49 Sol orbits officially completed.

And to think I don’t feel a day over 49.
