Yep, I’m not going to make excuses. I’ve fallen off the wagon. I need to get back on. I have 8 days left in this first attempt to turn this train around. So I’ve decided to have a Q&A today…asked and answered by…yours truly.
Q. Where did you go?
A. I just took a big break from everything
Q. Why did you take a big break from everything?
A. Pfft…who knows. I think it was a culmination of things. But I’ve decided to push and get back into the swing.
Q. Do you still think that eating in moderation and exercise are the cornerstones of your weight loss?
A. ABSOLUTELY! I know the rules…but I need to play by them.
Q. How much weight have you lost?
A. I was up to 25 lbs at my best, but I’m back down to 21 lbs.
Q. Did that get you down?
A. Yeah…there are a lot of things that “get me down”. It’s all how I choose to deal with them. Sadly, lately I haven’t been dealing with them well.
Q. Do you have support at home?
A. Yep! My wife reminds me how easy it is for me to lose weight. Wants to know what happened to that guy enthusiastic about his changes. She is my rock. She gives me motivation and I love her for it.
Q. So what are you doing this morning?
A. uh…blogging? And I plan to hit the treadmill. What are you doing?
Q. So anything cool happen while you were “vacationing”?
A. Yeah! as a matter of fact. I got my Roomba working again and my little buddy Chester decided he was going to hitch a ride! He rode it for a good 2 minutes before he became bored. Or maybe it was his stop?
Q. Read anything interesting lately?
A. Well, yeah. There’s this article that healthdemystified wrote that I keep going back to. I won’t spoil it…just go read it. Then I found this site…I love Crackers! Strangely enough, it’s really nice. Reminds me of my time back in SC and GA. I miss all my southern friends.
Q. Did you meet any people?
A. Actually, I got to see a great friend that I used to work with. It was kind of cool because she came to one of our local places to eat…and I was there at the same time! She confided in me later that she was thinking “wouldn’t it be cool if he was here today?” Cool Huh? yeah it was….one of the friends I miss the most. It was a boost I needed.
Q. Are you going to blog regularly again?
A. I don’t know…should I? I talked this over with a friend and they said absolutely. I think I’ll see how this goes, then go with that.
Q. Do you have a favorite in the upcoming election?
A. Haha OH NO…you’re not going to draw me in on that one…no way!
Q. How many belt loops have you gone down in size?
A. It was 4 but then it was back to 3. But still positive!
Well, I hope you enjoyed my blathering over stuff I think you all should know! I’m back on the wagon…forging ahead. Thanks to all who have had nothing but kind words to share. And thanks to the others who were … less than positive but still meant something good in your hearts. Keep reading…Keep hoping….Keep losing (weight).
