When I first registered the domain name SpiderByte.org my plan was to use it just for my tarantulas, but now that it is all set up I like it enough to want to use it as my website. I have always wanted to blog, the problem is, anytime I start a blog, I post one or two times then have nothing to write about and let it languish.
Well not this time (yeah right)! At a bare minimum I could post videos and pictures of my tarantulas, but I really would like write more. So, in a attempt to write more, I'm going to try publicly documenting my weight loss here. My oldest daughter is getting married in just over a year and I need to lose weight. I think that a weight loss journal could help me keep on track, keep me motivated, and even push me to do more than I would otherwise.
So, starting today I'm going to document my weight loss. I weighed myself this morning, 271.4 lb! I would like to lose 100 lb in one year.
Maybe I can learn a thing or two from the tarantulas, they go weeks, months, even years without eating. Surely I can eat less.

My Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens only had seven legs when I got her. I didn't notice until I got home from the reptile expo where I picked her up. I had heard that tarantulas could regrow legs, but I was still bummed. What if it didn't grow back?
