If you're a fan of Louis C.K. and you're not signed up for his e-mail list, you probably should change that immediately. The comedian sends out infrequent and hilarious updates to his fans which are mostly about his upcoming shows and specials, but also include personal gems like information about his recent weight loss.

In the latest e-mail, which C.K. sent out to promote the fact that his HBO special "Oh My God" is available online for purchase, the "Louie" creator/star/everything discussed his seven-pound weight loss.

"A lot has changed since my last email to you. Firstly, you'll be glad to know, I lost seven pounds! I know! And all it took was absolutely no dedication or commitment to losing any weight. And it paid off," he writes. "Now that I knocked that out of the park, I'm setting my sites on more goals."

What do those goals entail? Things like "none of my habits changing in any particular way" and "believing in myself," which is simpler than one might think. According to C.K., believing in oneself is easy as having the mentality, "I believe that I exist. And that I'm going to pretty much keep existing and being the pretty much same guy, with the same qualities and skills ive always ha or lacked, especially when averaged over time, no matter what happens."

So there you have it: major updates in the life of Louis C.K. He ends the wonderfully hilarious e-mail with the advice, "Please enjoy your life. And please be always curious about other people."

For those of you also missing C.K. as a regular presence in your life, "Louie" Season 4 will start filming this fall for a Spring 2014 return date.
