Boycott Fat Monday!

Got on the scale this morning. . .didn't like that number, so I'm boycotting the Monday Fat Report until the number gets where I want it!

(Needless to say, the number was higher than 327 lbs. . .gggrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. . .)

    Please include regular exercise, even longish walks, in this attempt. Putting all the burden on food, and its attendant pleasures, would seem to me an unfair burden on nature, human and animal.

  2. Father,

    Having read these posts about being fat, I just would like to encourage you. Don't let the number on the scale determine how you feel. Maybe the number will never change. Maybe it'll keep going down. Whatever the case may be, just eat sensibly, exercise and get plenty of rest. You know the drill: do the footwork and leave the results to God.

    PS, I used to be a marathon runner, then a combination of things resulted in my not being able to run and my weight went back up. Now I am walking two to four miles a day and avoiding McDonald's and Burger King on most days (I'm not perfect). My weight is getting back to being something reasonable, but the days of being 165 lbs at 4 % body fat are long over. I'll have to be satisfied with a higher weight and body fat content. Maybe God doesn't want me to be an obsessive runner any longer. The Big Book of AA (which Overeaters Anonymous uses and yes, I went to that program) says, "Progress, not perfection."

    As long as it isn't over the 338 you recently were, it's still an improvement. Even if it somehow were over 338, you know that you're doing what you need to do. You can only be reponsible for the effort. The results are out of your hands.

  4. This is why it is always a good idea to cry and whine and complain in public. . .sometimes folks will say smart things and cheer you up!

    Thanks, Folks! :-)

    My wife swears by weight watchers. She got the weight off and has kept it off. Dunno if it is right for everyone, but thought I'd add my experience.

    P.S. What's up with Blogger not taking the word verification when I try to post under Word Press? It happens on all blogger pages.

  6. Father I know that with the new year this has become old hat, but have you considered occupying fat monday?

  7. O Stella, I AM Fat Monday. . .
