Time For a Change

17 Jun

After my horrible gout experience I’ve decided I needed make serious changes in my life.  As I was thinking about this an interesting thing happened.  I was playing in a poker tournament at The Jack and a friend was sitting to my right.  He cracked my kings with ace king and annoyed me a bit.  He then said he was going to walk to his car during break and get some aspirin.  I said I’d walk with him. He looked at me in a concerned way and said, “I walk pretty fast and I take the stairs.”  I was surprised.  I’m able to walk at a nice clip for five miles at a time.  Then I took an honest look at myself and realized that I am a seriously fat guy.  Way too fat for a guy who is sixty years old and wants to live a quality life for a lot longer.

Back in February I had ballooned up to 298 pounds.  That is some serious tonnage.  I need to make some serious changes.  I will be doing that soon.
