Talking about procrastination got me to thinking about some further unfinished business. In April 2010 I looked at myself in the mirror and told myself the truth. I said and pardon the f bomb here nut it is what I said “f – – – that is pretty disgusting. I was talking about my reflection, all 138.9 kgs of it. That is nearly 307 pounds for my American readers or nearly 22 stone for my Uk readers.
I was morbidly obese. I was recently separated and had let myself go over the last 20 years, it had started with a back injury and then as I did not deal with all the other problems in my life I began to eat. I could eat a two pound steak with sausage and bread and ½ a dozen beers no problems. The dessert and snacks all good. Stop to buy gas, always add a chocolate bar, coke, flavoured milk whatever. As to exercise well I could work all day but at a slow pace. I decided that if I wanted someone else in my life then I needed to do something about it. I had been offered help to get a stomach staple but I had decided that these could get beaten and that I needed a change in my heart that extended to my body. Healthy mind, healthy soul.
I set about doing something about it. I set a goal of losing 5 kgs, I joined the gym and went for it. I started to lose weight. Hmmm. I thought maybe there is something in this, well to cut to the chase I weigh in at around 93 kgs give or take a kilo depending on the week. Yes that’s right I have lost over 100 pounds or 6 stone. Almost 1/3 of my body weight. Now here is the good news. I will share how to do this with you, how much would you pay for this knowledge, my secret to success, $90.00 well today, I will give you an opportunity to find out my story for … wait for it not 90.00, not 80.00 not 50.00 not even 20.00. For the grand sum of just 3.00 I will share the secrets of my weight loss with you. That is right, $3.00. (if you want to trawl through my blogs you can learn it for free!
Wait there must be a catch. Nope, nada, nix, not even, No catch or conditions. All you have to do is follow my blog. I can even throw in some cooking lessons and recipes if you like. Just tell me what you want to know. I am even prepared to journey with you via cyber space on your journey of weight loss if that is what you prefer. I know that this knowledge is worth paying for and if you decide that you like what you hear and want to acknowledge that in a tangible form, you can buy my book. Anyway back to the story of procrastination. I have been stable for the last 6 months bouncing around the 93 to 95 kg mark. I have a goal to reach 85 kgs before I turn 50 in January. Procrastinate no more, back on the wagon, follow my journey. Weigh in tomorrow. I may have even sneaked back into the 96 kg mark.
I have posted some before and after photos so you can see the reality of my change. I hope you enjoyed my story.
