WEIGH-IN DAY (Friday): I weigh about 254.0 pounds. My BMI is around 39.8. I lost 1.0 pounds this week. My average fasting glucose level was 96 mg/dL. The average carbohydrates for the past week were 41.1 grams. Average calories were 1990 versus an average BMR of 2475 calories. I exercised for 6 minutes this past week, including riding 0.99 miles on my bicycle.

I had my six-months checkup on Tuesday. I am a delight to the diabetes coordinator. They hold me up as an example. I'm so proud.

In the market today, Gary Jordan (GSJ) was trading slightly lower than last week, down £1.00, for a total decline of £37.60 from the high of £291.60. When asked to explain the losses to date, a spokesman for GSJ said, "Life is like a Trick-orTreat bag. Some of it will be sweet, some sour, and like old movies, you’re dependin’ on the kindness of strangers.’ "

Self Publishing

I have finally looked into Self-publishing on Amazon, and goodness gracious deary me (feel free to substitute much scatological cursing) I am not quite (at all) ready for prime time. Take the matter of the cover image: 2550 by 1600 pixels. Mandatory to have one inside and outside your book. I don't have one that size, and they say DO NOT just scale up the one you have - it looks crappy. The one I have is 510 wide by 680 high. They're right. It would look crappy.

I can deal. I have a photoshop clone. But then it starts in listing what formatting is permitted and what isn't, starting with "Never specify the size of anything in pixels or em - use %." I have to change... everything. There's more, lots more.
Gonna do it, but it ain't gonna be quick.
