Conquering a Small Section of the Mental Mountain

August 28, 2007

Has this ever happened to you? You are fat.  You know you need to lose weight.  And you think about this a lot.  Often times you think about it while in the car.  On your way to a restaurant, perhaps.  As you drive you start by thinking about how good you have been lately at [...]


Habits are hard to break

August 24, 2007

I’m out of town on business Thursday and Friday, my first travel since I started this journey at the start of this month.  This is actually a very light travel month for me, so I was glad to get the opportunity to try out my new found resolve. The results have been so-so.  One thing [...]

Confession Time

August 20, 2007

In yesterday’s weekly update I told you I gained 2 pounds.  And I did.  That isn’t why I’m here confessing.

Thinking about change

August 2, 2007

I am fat, not fit

August 1, 2007

Hello world.  My name is John and despite what the name of this blog might imply, I am fat.  How the hell did I let myself go like this?  I’m 41 years old, 6 feet tall and weigh 295 pounds.   20 years ago I wavered between 177 and 190.  I really felt great at 185.  [...]
