My 8th Sparkversary.
Monday, October 12, 2015
Sometimes I wonder why I'm still here, but then I remind myself if I hadn't stayed here all these years, I'd probably be about 314# instead of the 214# I started at back on October 12, 2007. That was horrible for me to be that fat. My back hurt so bad. So, this past year, I'm once again not at my goal, but I'm at 161# and I've actually stayed down here around the 160# level for the past four months. For me that is good. I haven't been below 160# in 25 years. So I know it is a "set point" area. I will get more fat off, as I'm determined. I went to the doctor's and had blood work done, so I'm needing to go back and find out the results. I don't want to get Type 2 Diabetes. I know I have Metabolic Syndrome. I've learned a lot from Jason Fung M.D. on YouTube.
So, this year I remember Og Mandino's quote: “There is an immeasurable distance between late and too late.”
I'm happy my son, Nathan is now 31 and remains a cancer survivor. He still wants to go to medical school. He has a degree in Biomedical Engineering from Columbia U. in NYC, so he knows he can get through the work. Having the cancer just made him look at life from a completely different view point.
