WHERE TO BEGIN?

On June 26, 2009 I was just "the average fat guy" walking into work. The next thing I know, I am riding in the back of an ambulance headed to a trama center hospital with a massive Pulminary Embolism.

HOW DID I GET HERE?

At this point I am not sure. This web site sure seems like a "chick" thing...not enough testosterone for me but..... OK, Kid #2 suggested I use this site for tracking calories and workouts.... She is a work out monster......no need for her to use this website....Who said I wanted to lose weight? The doctor never said I had to lose weight. Well maybe he suggested it once or twice..... I guess I was a little pissed off when I saw the physical description of me in the hospital...."Middle Aged" and "Obese". That hurt! I never thought of myself as Middle aged.... fat..... but not 'Middle Aged'

THE GOOD NEWS?

I fooled the doctors and actually lived to walk Kid #2 down the aisle one week after I went into the hospital.....The kid was threatening to call off the wedding....the heck with that; I had already spent a boat load...Luckily I got a pass from the doctors the day before the wedding...

WHAT NOW?

Well as long as I am here I might as well lose some weight.....

    Hi Charger, thanks for the blog comments.

    red robin is not the best place if you're trying to eat healthy that's for sure! I believe they have a plain chicken sandwich, but don't ever get their specialty salads! Loaded with fat and sugar, it's amazing the dressing doesn't have the consistency of butter. The house salad is ok if you get lite ranch. You have to do without cheese and sauces at these fat food places :)

    I know I'm never going to stop eating out, so I'm trying to find ways to make eating out fit into my life. Guess it's a good thing I'm not a fry lover or I'd never be able to set foot in the place again.

    Have a great day!
