How did I get here again?
Thursday, October 09, 2014
Here I am starting over again and wondering how I got to this point. I had lost 46 pounds and said never again. But slowly, over the past five years, I have gained it back. First ankle injury and PT, then a bulging disc in my back putting pressure on a nerve and more PT. Good excuses for not working out, but not for overeating! I have lost the weight before, so I know I can do it. When I lost the weight last time many people noticed and asked me how I did it. My answer was always: "Eating very little and working out a lot." That is the prescription I will try to follow again. I can no longer work out in the same way, but I will find other ways. I am currently reading a book on weight loss, Weightless: My life as a fat man and how I escaped. The author tells of how he became overweight and wanted to know the secret of thin people. He asked a thin man at work who answered: "Just. Eat. Less." I know that is the answer and am determined to follow this advice!
