I know this is no biggy. I'm not going vegan, or even veggie. My alimentary tract maintains its wonted hospitality to eggs and meat. I'm not even refraining from alcohol, although as it happens I've not had much occasion to drink it.
Maybe by the end of the month I'll have lost half a stone or so, but the cholesterol is the main thing.
Also - the cycle begins again! - I'm hoping to return to Japan at the end of the semester that's about to begin, a place where I always feel rather too big, so I suppose you could call this partly an exercise in getting a shrine-ready bod. But actually, let's not.
