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.
