OK I have made a decision to post my weight here daily on this blog as motivation to keep riding the X. Why? I'm struggling to ride the X...For one, it hurts me, it really does. And not just the back but the right knee is all torn up but a retired Orthopedic Surgeon here on the island told me I could not damage it any more and that I should keep riding. So I'm taking his advice, thanks Doc!
So here it is. As of today 8 January, 2011 My weight is:
That's super freaking heavy for this boy, believe me. I'm 6'1" and I do carry it fairly well (shit it's all gathered up in one tidy place around my mid section for god sakes!) but I'm about 20-25lbs overweight I'd say. So I'm going to keep posting this weight until I can get 'er under control.
As I've mentioned, I do eat a fairly healthy diet. lots of fruit, veges and such. I do have to cut out the daily Ice Cream but other then that it's not bad. I do have a bad habit of being hungry and eating before I lay down. I know, I know....very, very, bad thing to do, thormoo!
Being this heavy is still rather shocking, I never thought I'd see 200lbs or even close to it. As I've mentioned, in June of 2006 when I sobered up I weighed 139lbs. 64 pounds lighter then I am now, whoa! It was ugly, scary ugly actually...but I was on a very specialized diet. But I wouldn't recommend it to anyone:

First you don't eat anything for 2, 3 yea 4 days in a row. Sounds tough to do? Not really when your personally snorting an 8 ball or so a day and drinking vodka for breakfast. I think you get the drift, eh?
I tried to find some pics from around that time and I just don't have any. So the previous pics were taken in 2007, over a year after I got sober and still show me as a pretty thin guy but finally looking at least reasonably healthy by then.
So this is it, I have to be accountable for my weight gain and I'm going to do it here 203.6....
Sorry, I couldn't resist. That's a wonderful shot for a Saturday morning breakfast time post, eh!
