Attention Fatbloggers

You can do it. Last fall, my doctor told me I was fat. You can thank two years at Google followed by a year of falafel at the place across the street from Odeo for that. I was clocking in at 200lbs and things were not looking good. In October, Obvious acquired Odeo and Twitter and I joined a health club. Then things started picking up.

Part of my problem was that somehow I had convinced myself that living a vegan lifestyle had me covered. Not true. My doctor's advice was very straightforward "Eat less and exercise." So I joined a health club and followed his advice. It took five months for me to lose 30lbs and it was a blast watching them melt off. Now I work out just about every day and I watch what I eat.

Looking good! Seems to have gotten rid of your red eye, too. :-)

Man you have to be careful with those Falafels. I've been living in Malmö, in Southern Sweden, and thanks to a huge Middle Eastern population, you can buy a huge falafel wrap for like $2.

How do you ensure you get enough calcium on a vegan diet?

Hey.... remember a long while back when some chick on myspace said that she used to have a celebrity crush on you (but didn't anymore because you were gettin' fat)?

Anyways, she says great work!
