I was trying to get motivated so I turned to Netflix. Found a documentary by Kenny Saylors. It is called Facing the Fat and it is a ripoff version of Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. It was made in 2009 and it was pretty horrible. The guy weighs in at 315 and decides to go on a 40 day water fast. Forty days because that is biblical. It ends up being 55 days. He ends up losing 48 pounds but he is still morbidly obese and doesn’t look healthy to me.
Since this was eight years ago I look him up on FB and other places on the net and find that he ballooned up to 473 pounds That is about what my first Suburu weighed in 1976. He started a new video series to drop the weight where he does a daily video series called Reinventing Kenny. I began following him on FB and Twitter. Currently he is on Day 107 and down around 85 pounds. Good for him.
So, I’ve decided to do the same thing. Only I’m going to do it quite differently. I’m going to try keeping calories low, drinking a lot of water and exercising. Mainly by walking. I’ve failed so many times but not this time.
