I have lost 34 pounds since Christmas (still 24 to go). My weight had gotten to an all time high; and I knew that I must do something. Also, a few weeks ago the doctor told me that my cholesterol was a problem and that my sugar levels were at the high end of normal. I have done pretty well on watching what and when I eat; and I have been walking a lot over the last few weeks. The other night I had a great pizza. Becky wisely only ate half of hers and took the rest home in a box. I unwisely ate all of mine (I did the same thing when I ate with my brother last week). It was really, really good. My restraint is somewhat sporadic. So, on the way home we walked into the local Gold’s Gym and I signed up. Now I just need to make sure that I go. We’ll see just how disciplined I can be.
Part of finishing well will need to be taking care of my body. I mean, I could get hit by a truck, fall down the stairs, have a heart attack or get cancer (or some obscure, terminal disease) and die at any moment; but I don’t want to die because I am stupid or lack self-control. That would be a waste.
