I don't know exactly how it happened, it just sort of snuck up on me I think, one morning I woke up and looked down and I could barely see my toes. I remember thinking:
"Jeeesus H! where in the blue hell did that belly come from??"
they tell me that you don't realize that you're gaining weight while its happening but luckily for me- I started weighing myself every day again in the mornings and once before I went to bed. when my weight hit 256 lbs I decided that enough was enough, it was time to do something about it. so I started going for a run every morning and cutting back on my carb intake, and aside from a couple of minor set-backs early on- (Like a swollen calf muscle) I'm happy to report that after my run today I managed to get my weight down from 256 to 235. I still have a long way to go but I'm making significant progress. The one thing aside from the weight loss that I've noticed is I sleep better, I breathe better and I seem to have more energy than ever before. anyhow I just wanted to pop in and see how everyone was doing, I have some time so I think I'll make the rounds this afternoon. I see that Blogstream is still up and running, but no matter I'm done with it, I deactivated my last blog there and I'm not going back. anyhow time to go catch up on some blogs.. then tomorrow morning its back to the running for me.
