Weight loss kicked off
It started when I had my life insurance medical exam in November and came in eight pounds heavier than I expected (which was already heavier than I need).
Then, a few weeks ago, the 47-year-old father of a friend had a heart attack and ended up having a double bypass this week.
I need to lose weight, to get healthy. I don’t really care about looking good, but rather feeling good. I want to be around for my grandchildren someday, to set a good example for my kids so that they learn healthy habits, to feel like I should feel. So I joined a gym this week and started eating better several weeks ago. I’ve lost four pounds already; my short-term goal is 24 (to get back to 200 pounds), then to get down to 175. I probably should lose more from there but I don’t want to get ahead of myself.
