Weight Loss…AGAIN!

Sorry it has been a while. The Fall is busy. I know..I know…we are all busy…lame excuse. I know I have one loyal follower but even he has most likely forgotten I write a blog.
As I sit here I just read a tweet from Jillian Michaels..you may not have heard of Jillian…she may be the coolest weight loss woman I have ever seen. She, along with Bob Harper are the trainers for the one show on NBC that is a success…The Biggest Loser. I have watched this show for a while now…even went so far as to go to a cattle call audition last time they rolled through the DFW area. Anyway Jillian’s tweet said something about having a weight loss blog.  She even linked it to an article about why you should have a weight loss blog http://www.johnisfit.com/u/108
So I guess it is time…time to tell you…I am losing weight AGAIN! I have written about my weight struggles before so if your are interested browse through the past and you will see diet mentioned a couple of times.  
So back in the early fall I went to see my doctor.  He is a really awesome individual, as far as doctors go.  I saw him 3 months prior for regular physical and he said see you in 3 months.  I said what? Why? “Just to see how you are doing?” I was just on the other side of my struggle with a depression and had put on 30 lbs from the 50 I had lost a year prior. I had told him the stuff I thought he wanted to hear and even the stuff I had written about here. I am going back to the gym…getting refocused..bah..blah..blah.. Truth time..I hadn’t done any of that…I was lying to him, to you, to me, and trying to lie to God (good thing He knew better). I had even gotten my buddy in trouble for not telling his wife I was back in the gym…oh the guilt! Well not much on that last part cause my buddy Rusty is like all good husbands. He stays in constant trouble…
Anyway…when I went back in 3 months and the doc looked at me..as I was another 20 lbs heavier and said very matter of fact, “so you are heavier…you heading for 400 lbs? Cause I don’t think you will make it.” What? Really? No…I am not heading to 400lbs…or am I? What was I doing? I had lost a bunch of weight a year ago and now here I was heavier than I had ever been in my life. What was I doing?
I had gotten back to the place I thought I would never be again…I had let myself be controlled by food…I had given up…I had decided that four cup cakes were better than 30 minutes walking..
So doc told me that if I really wanted to change he knew of a program that would do it…he had patients sitting in the same chair who had lost 30…40..70 lbs…I said ok what is it surgery? He said “I will never recommend that to anyone..so no…you need to go to get your lifestyle changed…” honestly..I had heard that before…been there done that like six…eight times…but I kept listening…and tomorrow…I will tell you the rest of the story…cause this is getting a bit long in the tooth and there is more to tell….so until tomorrow…..time to get groovin’
