i’m fat and unhealthy…again

Went to the dr yesterday for a skin condition and learned that I have another problem.

Not horrible, but important.  

My weight is back up – way up.  BP is climbing 146/96.  Checked it again this morning.  No change.  Never been that high.

Also having some twitching in both hands and numbness on the bottom of my feet.

As most of  you know, I was once 282 lbs.  I got all the way down to 220 and even ran a half-marathon.  But a bad diet and lack of exercise has me over 250 again.


Here’s a pic from the glory days



I am switching immediately to a low carb, no refined sugar diet that will include a high percentage of whole food (mostly vegetables)





Part of blogging is building relationships. Relationships keep the posts more personal.  I like it better that way. I’m a relationship kinda guy.

And by making my current condition public, I am, by default, making myself accountable to pretty much anyone who asks.
