The weighting game
Since giving up cigar smoking after a recent illness last year I am horrified to say that I have put 2 ½ stones on in weight [For those of you who deal in lbs or kilograms – work it out for yourself, it’s a lot!]
I do not appear to be able to stop eating. I guess it is a comfort thing, something to do with not having the support of the smoke and the crutch in the hand, or maybe even something to do with OCD? [Another story, a long time ago – beat you, you bastard].
I am the first to know when I am overweight as my trousers and shirts no longer begin to fit, and then I have to buy bigger, and then bigger clothes. You can probably surmise that I have gained weight before; I have also been able to lose it pretty quickly again too.
Now, what is a bloke, in middle age, harping on about his weight for you may well ask? Or you may not even care; however, I have lost count of the number of people who have mentioned my weight gain this very day!
I have decided to go public, or bloglic, with this as I am determined to lose weight for both myself and my family. I need to be able to run around the park with our little one soon, and having lost a part of the right lung it is hard enough getting air in without contending with all this extra flubber.
I will not be making a big thing about this but each Monday evening I will post my weight on the site, so I will hopefully no longer be such a sight!
Hopefully this will prove less expensive than joining a Gym.
