So things are still going pretty well. I’ve shed a total of 10lbs so far and it hasn’t been easy. The great thing is that 10lbs is enough that people have noticed that I’m less fat (ha ha). It really helps to hear my friends be supportive, even when I haven’t told most of them I’m dieting and working out. It’s nice now as my little daughter is getting older and more independant (thank God I don’t mean makeup, cars, and boys independant but rather crawling around independant) so now I can chase her and play with her. It’s the funnest way to work out going.

My wife is away on a business trip this week so it will be a big test for me to keep eating healthy with her gone. Thankfully she has gotten rid of almost everything unhealthy from the house so if I want a bag of chips I’ll probally break even from the walk there lol… as long as I stay away from the bgi bags… gulp… another challenge

As time draws on this really doesn’t get any easier. It seems with every pound I drop it becomes harder and harder to lose the next one. Sometimes I wish I had never challaned myself but I guess I’ll have to keep going. Can’t let my baby see her daddy as a failure, or a fatty for that matter when she gets older. I know kids are SUPPOSTED to be ashamed of their parents, but I want her to be ashamed because I’m not cool… not because I’m fat.

The worst of it is when I’m crabby at my wife. She understands that this is taking a toll on me but still… sometimes I’m downright rude to her. She’s a great woman tho and no matter how big a pain in the butt I am she keeps bringing me the healthy food I hate. I can’t wait to shed these pounds so I can be the man she deserves.

I feel a lot better after writing this.

So with a little diet and exercse I lost 3lbs this past week. I acomplished this by:

– Eating snacks like celery and carrots instead of chips

– Walking every night after dinner

It was pretty easy, but I must admit I’m always craving a little grease. I start fitness class next week and I hope that will really bring me to the next level. Thank God for my wife who is helping me by holding out on giving me those chips and chopping vegetables.

The Begining of the End (I Hope)

So I plan to start my quest to lose around 80lbs today through a balance of diet and exercise. I’m not a big pills od surgery guy so I’m going to do my best to stay away from those but I might talk about them every once in a while. Here is my pic as it stands right now (with my daughter and reason for losing weight).

Hopefully at the end of this I’ll be able to play with my daughter for more than 5 minutes without wanting to die ha ha. Just gotta keep working at it.
