I looked at the scale again this morning - 230. Five years ago at this time I was 188 biking in France and generally at the top of my game. Now I am struggling.
And I have so much to work for - a great wife, a toddler son and a new one coming in December.
Sure I'm older, but I don't want to feel old. This time I want to be serious about my weight and health, like I was in 2005. I say I'll try often, but within days I'm back to my status quo. This time I am going public - not just collecting Starpoints, but really opening myself up to the scrutiny of my success or failure.
I hesitated this morning to look at the scale. "Today is not a good day," I said. But I sucked it up and did it. I didn't like what I saw, but reality is incontrovertible. I commit to daily face the truth.
