Just thought I would write a little something in here today, its been 11 days since I started this lifestyle change and I honestly feel better. so far so good, the ease of not eating is surprising to me because every other attempt that has been made has failed to this point and only because the willpower did not hold up to the cake and what not. I honestly believe that my new friend Fear has a lot to do with it. its funny to me because usually Fear drives people to not do something, for example standing on the edge of a 30 foot drop into a lake, fear may stop a person from taking that jump, or getting on a roller coaster etc, Fear has driven me to make a decision to change the path that I am on, and make an abrupt right hand turn into the thick brush of limited diet and much more exercise.

I have placed the fear into my back pocket and it will remain there until I make it out of the brush and find a better road than the one I was on. now I am rambling so I will end this entry here. thanks for reading .

As Ever

    I have come to the beginning to read your earliest posts because the latest ones (2/10) are so well written and show so much insight and determination that I wanted to get to know you better. I like your comment on putting fear in your pocket. It is something I will think about when I suffer the fear of stepping outside my norm and it will give me courage.

The beginning

Thursday, January 10, 2008

When fear takes the wheel there is no knowing what will happen next. in this case fear grabbed the wheel and started steering towards the thing that cannot happen any time soon so the man in charge took the wheel back and looked at fear and told it where to go. I am a 30 something father and Husband that needs to lose a lot of weight, I started researching a WLS and I did not like what I found so I made the decision to take my weight problem into my own hands and take full responsibility for my health and well being as well as that of my family.

I am on a low calorie diet and walking every day, and trying to eat much more healthy.

    You are right - it takes those little steps everyday. Taking responsibility will show your children good habits and character. Way to go on signing up and getting started. Support is here for the taking. Keep up your blog and read others in the groups. It can really help the motivation to keep moving and taking care of yourself!
