"Nantworth" was never going to be a real surname for me; it's something I created through elaborate backformation from my family's real surname, to its roots, then forward through a different linguistic path. On consideration, as I come out to more of the people I know, it feels like a distraction. So I've dropped it from my use info at Dreamwidth and LiveJournal, in favor of my real surname's first initial. (That's B, for those too lazy to go look.)

Ceri, on the other hand, is a real name, or at least it may well become one. It draws on family heritage I'm happy to uphold, and it's composed of sounds I like. So, Ceri B. it is.

Seen on my evening walk, a very mysterious thing:

Down 0.2 pounds. *sigh*

But this is a case where the weekly snapshot doesn't tell the whole story. On Thursday, two days after the last weekly number, I was down two pounds. Then I got hit by a day and some of nasty detoxing effects from the fat burning, followed by a couple of days of nasty reactions to the spike in temperatures we got on the weekend. I'm coming back down from that - a graph would show a nice slope, and since I seem to have a good routine for keeping myself cool as may be right now, I expect the slope to stay down, and that the week 3 snapshot will show the overall picture better. This is like doing a mileage calculation with a flat tire. :)

I also find that I've taken two inches off my thighs, and one off my chest. No change yet in waist, neck, upper arm, or calf measurements. But of those...my arms and lower legs are in pretty good shape overall, and I already knew that the belly bloat complications at waist level would likely be slowest to improve.

I'm doing well on the process, too. I ate good foods in good amounts this week, and genuinely didn't feel any real urge to go do something stupid and diet-breaking. So I can keep that up, with a modification on amounts to avoid another nasty fat-burning-triggered detoxing ugh, and look for good results.

Once again, I got graphs.

This post is a response, kind of, to Oliviacirce's very excellent thoughts about different parts of the sf fan world. Read them first.

Nonetheless, I have to dissent some. Because some of the commenters are egging each other on in an Othering of old-time, print-oriented fans that leads to a description that is clearly and demonstrably false not just for the fan I know best (me) but for many of the fans and pros I've known over the decades. I'm going to lay out my criticisms first, and then my points of agreement.

This predates the literal videos, but I was reminded of it again and it still makes me giggle something fierce. It's amazing what the simplest edits can do.
