Soda Challenge 09

In yet another attempt to lose some weight without putting forth any more effort than already exerted, I am going to give up soda completely for 30 days and wait for the pounds to magically disappear. Traci and I were talking about what a sloth I have become and we came up with this bet: If I can go 30 days with no soda, then I get a new video game. If I fail the challenge, then she gets a one hour massage, performed by me. I am not the worlds largest fan of giving massages (I have long fingers... very delicate), and Traci flat out hates all the video games I play, so it is a good compromise on both sides. As of writing this post, I currently weigh in at 215 lbs standing 5' 11", with a wing span of 6' 3". The official weigh in is tomorrow morning and I anticipate it being significantly less (coffee and bagel induced weight loss, if you get my drift). I will let you know how it goes and whether or not this soda challenge is legit or if I am going to need to go with "Plan B", ingesting as much Olestra as possible.

The things some people say it offers that other services don’t (cross device calls and texts) can be achieved for free with Google Voice and there is very little difference to the end users. The biggest things Project Fi has going for it are these two things:

1. WiFi Assistant

This could/should be huge… like really super duper huge. Free high speed WiFi all over the place. Stream and browse at will! That said I’ve been on Project Fi for 4 months and have only had 3 or 4 keys. This needs to improve drastically in order to mitigate the large price increase people coming from far more data friendly plans would…
