Important Notice! One of my duties as Piedmont Laureate is a biweekly blog. So, for the rest of 2015, I'll be posting only rarely here, usually exercise related posts that don't seem at home there. On the Piedmont Laureate blog, I'll mainly be focusing on topics related to speculative fiction. Check it out by clicking here.

I'm James Maxey, the author of the Dragon Age fantasy series of Bitterwood, Dragonforge, and Dragonseed, the Dragon Apocalypse series of Greatshadow, Hush, and Witchbreaker, as well as the superhero novels Nobody Gets the Girl and Burn Baby Burn. I use this site to discuss a wide range of topics, with a heavy emphasis on cranky, uninformed rants about politics and religion and other topics that polite people attempt to avoid. For anyone just wanting to read about my books, I maintain a second blog, The Prophet and the Dragon, where I keep the focus solely on my fiction. I also have a webpage where both blogs stream, with more information about all my books, at jamesmaxey.net.

Week 9: 30 pounds!

Made it! And now I really need new pants.

Congratulations, James! I'd say you have earned that new wardrobe.

Plus, if you buy the clothes before the gluttony of the holiday season surrounds you, you'll have incentive to eat wisely, since you wouldn't want to grow out of those nice new clothes, right?

Here's to a healthy new year for all!

New pants also come with a subtle, hidden advantage: less fabric. Since we weigh in clothed at work, losing a couple of ounces from the weight of my clothing might be just enough to trim my weight down to a lower number. For what it's worth, I know from actually weighing them that my current pants weigh an average of 1.5 pounds. I wonder how odd it would look if I carry my scale with me into Old Navy....
