WHERE TO BEGIN?

On June 26, 2009 I was just "the average fat guy" walking into work. The next thing I know, I am riding in the back of an ambulance headed to a trama center hospital with a massive Pulminary Embolism.

HOW DID I GET HERE?

At this point I am not sure. This web site sure seems like a "chick" thing...not enough testosterone for me but..... OK, Kid #2 suggested I use this site for tracking calories and workouts.... She is a work out monster......no need for her to use this website....Who said I wanted to lose weight? The doctor never said I had to lose weight. Well maybe he suggested it once or twice..... I guess I was a little pissed off when I saw the physical description of me in the hospital...."Middle Aged" and "Obese". That hurt! I never thought of myself as Middle aged.... fat..... but not 'Middle Aged'

THE GOOD NEWS?

I fooled the doctors and actually lived to walk Kid #2 down the aisle one week after I went into the hospital.....The kid was threatening to call off the wedding....the heck with that; I had already spent a boat load...Luckily I got a pass from the doctors the day before the wedding...

WHAT NOW?

Well as long as I am here I might as well lose some weight.....

    That is so cool!!! I started just following them cause I love their colors then I saw the cheese heads and being a cheezy kinda gal, I just sorta fell in love. I'm proud I didn't throw any popcorn at them, though I'm very not happy with Roger's taking as many hits as he did. Young line...though no excuse for what they get paid. LOL Catch you around. Hope the appt goes well. My visit to the vampires is tomorrow to check on cholesterol, etc. BLAH!

    No drama is a FABULOUS thing...I'm going to enjoy it while it lasts. And Mike's Cowboys had a bye week so I didn't have to clean up popcorn...though if Greenbay doesn't get their tails in gear I'm going to be throwing some popcorn myself. Have a great week!

    Thanks for the add!

    IDK what happened, had this nice post all typed up and it didn't post. Stupid computers.

    Anyhow, we purchased 5 bottles of wine at the festival and will be enjoying some of it while we burn construction debris. Sounds like a good time to me!

    Have a great day.

    PS, don't go out with the guys every day for lunch! limit that to weekly or something.
