I'm fat. I'm more than fat.. I'm obese. I mention my struggle with obesity in my left sidebar. I've always worried I would end up being one of those 600 pound people that have to have a wall cut in their home to be taken to the hospital. Possibly on the back of a flatbed truck.
Getting this obese doesn't just happen. It happened because I've eaten too much and made bad choices regarding what I've eaten. It happens because I haven't exercised. I've lived this way for too many years.
If you've been following my blog at all you know I've made a strong commitment to change all this. I monitor my blood sugar twice a day and eat healthier and less to keep it low. It could still go lower but for now it's where I set my goal. I'm sure you've noticed the 'exercise for comments' I add at the bottom of most posts, too. Please comment because I DO add those minutes to my daily ride.
Here's a picture of me at my desk. I hate to show my fat self, but it's an important thing for me to do at the same time. More of my facing the truth. Notice the love handles. These aren't normal love handles. They are industrial handles! (I've lost ten pounds since this picture. Not much but it's going in the right direction.)
Note: I normally ride my exercise bike 25 minutes a day but will add an extra minute for each comment I get on this post. One comment per person, please =)
