Sometimes you gotta make a change – for once in my life … gonna make difference … gonna do something right
Yeah – it might not be a GREAT HUGE SOCIETAL CHANGE – but even small “start with Me” changes can yield big results.
I’m scared – you see I have this plan … why do I need a plan. Well at 51 and extremely obese (375) – the time for me to quit thinking and start changing myself has come – that is if I want to live a longer more comfortable life.
There were three options I came up with:
- Surgery – re- route my innards. Everyone is doing it – even people that I wouldn’t call fat. Yet I have noticed that it is not the answer to all our problems. I have seen the weight come back – I have seen the complications that it can cause.
2) Fat camp for two months of hard training and re-working of how I eat. Yes I did this when I was 25 and it did work – I went on to lose over 100 lbs and kept it off for some time – but the birth of three children and a busy life saw the weight eventually come back.
3) Travel the world. Travel especially to Asian or Third World Countries – WHY. Truthfully – I don’t like Asian or Spicy food – so that will help with the eating. Secondly – there is alot of walking when traveling – particularly in these type of countries. I have been at a desk job for 20 years – with little to no movement. Finally – I did go to China on a 4 week all inclusive trip (plenty of food) and lost over 20 lbs.
I went with OPTION THREE — besides the health aspects, I would love to see the world. But more importantly, after raising 6 children, I would love to re-learn who I am. Re-discover ME.
That’s the plan folks – Departure date September 2012 HOPEFULLY!!
Soon I will post my TENTATIVE itinerary – of course there is no way I will get to go to all the places or see all the things I want – but its a Draft a Guideline to follow
