Here We Go Again…

Me in May of this year

So I stepped on the scale last week after eating my way through Long Island trip to see the family…

I was stunned… STUNNED! I won’t go into the exact amount, but it was north of 3 bills.

Honestly, I have been on a solid weight gain for the last 2 years. All the hard work I put in is now GONE. I have to try and get it back. I finally got to a doctor and did a sleep study, which revealed my sleep apnea levels. It resulted in a new CPAP machine. That is a machine that basically blows air in your windpipe to offset your breathing stopping. I finally have had a good nights sleep!

Now onto the real problem. Food.

Me back in 2014

For me, it comes down to eating the same things all the time for a long time until I drop enough weight that I can attempt to open up my food intake a little.

This consists of:

  • Egg whites
  • Rice cakes
  • Chicken
  • Verry Little Red Meat
  • Smart One from Weight Watchers

The hard part is keeping up with it.

I’m just too old to be unhealthy, and it’s time (again) to try to get a hold of it. Too many kids, too young, and just too handsome to allow this anymore. Motivation is hard to find, but I am trudging along, I am wring this to keep myself honest and remind me what I need to do. I am kinda glad it is the holidays because it is going to force me to try and do the right thing.

On a good note, I am down 5 pounds in a week. Treadmill, here I come!
