Update on the Stress Diet

I have now lost seven pounds on the Stress Diet, thanks to a stressful yesterday where I ate very little for lunch and not much more for supper due to an interview. Only four pounds left to hit my goal!

-- Badtux the Involuntarily Dieting Penguin


  1. Best of luck, Badtux. Hopefully the weight loss will make you look younger and that will help you slip past that youth-worshiping interviewer.

    It's a win-win, except for the part about the stress, the company disappearing, and the weight loss.

  2. Just remember, you've got some blog fans out here rooting for you.

  3. Good luck, Badtux. Keep a good record of your sent resumés and interviews.

    When I got my current job, I got a look at the stack of applications for my job. It was about a ream of paper. So, search and apply and interview full time.

  4. The trouble with stress diets is that what you lose is water weight -- from all the sweating and pissing your pants in terror. Once you lose the fear, wipe your brow and put on clean undies, the weight creeps back.


Ground rules: Comments that consist solely of insults, fact-free talking points, are off-topic, or simply spam the same argument over and over will be deleted. The penguin is the only one allowed to be an ass here. All viewpoints, however, are welcomed, even if I disagree vehemently with you.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
