August 31, 2015 ‘Great month’s effort, fellow Graviteers! we all done good.’

So this is the last of photo of the August Challenge. Think nothing of the number. Take the time to go back through the month ending and look at your numbers. What do you see? No, without getting all powerpoint/ audiovisual on it, picture a graph of the numbers. Ups and downs? sure, of course. The important thing is to picture the graph from start to finish, from a perspective to the side…. is it (the graph) slanted? (I’m betting it is).
Change. Progress.

clark: … 57.6  (my approach? glad you asked!  this?  a good number, but the real value is that later in the week, if (and when) it tracks higher, I’ll know that I hit this number once and it is now within my ‘reasonable range’)

August 29, 2015 ‘… and another month comes to a close. did you remember to vote?’

So, it looks like a landslide is building for taking the Gravity Challenge into September (month motto: ‘sure, there are really warm days, but Summer is over‘)

Waiting to hear from Christine and Joy and Kristi (we totally want unanimity on the extension of the G Games!) Somebody call them up!

August 28, 2015 ‘in which what was not right is righted and a sense of balance restored’

Friday it is then! Let the photo show what, if you care to scroll back (as I do encourage from time to time) over the past however many of these we have done and look for the path of change. Surely it is not a straight line, but, equally surely when viewed over time the trend (by the day, by the week, soon, by the month) will be downwards.

No one day’s photo should cause too much elation or too much depression. There is change and the (weight) is changeable. Pretty much the point of the ‘Gravity Challenge’

August 26, 2015 ‘halfway through the month already!’

(for anyone paying attention to such things), of late there seems to be a time of slight ….dissonance. (These times), are when things don’t quite seem totally correct, or, at any rate, not quite as real as they should. (Stop me if this makes not sense.) It is this, ‘not quite real’ overtone that makes us appreciate how variable reality can be and is not, for those few who are capable of noticing it, particularly pleasant.

But ….but! on the positive side, a time of dissonance oft-times presages significant change (in one’s reality) and so can be an exciting time.

at any rate, here is the proof of concept:

August 25, 2015

Welcome to the Gravity Challenge!  where there are no bad weights, only bad beliefs about weight.

Join us and share in the thrill of progress and the agony of …  no, no agony here. Hell, it’s the notion that it’s agony to have your scale tell you that you weigh more than you think you know what you should weigh. The Gravity Challenge is not (quite) about ‘weight loss’… it is about ‘weight change’.

Let’s just let it go at that for today.
