Worse was seeing the photos afterwards. I have been fastidiously been avoiding cameras for years. These were the photos the participants took. One was a nice side-shot of me. It was not the most complimentary photo. It burned itself into my conscious. I finally knew it was time something had to be done.
I have been on all kinds of diets... loose 10 pounds here, gain back 15, loose 15, gain back 20... I am tired of that. I also realized up to that point I have been dieting for the wrong reasons. I tried to please people, never myself.
I am happy with life, have a great job and am quite content.
This time I wanted to make the changes for me. I want to live longer.
I have been blessed not have sleep apnea or be diabetic. I am close to the cusp though. I do have high blood pressure and gout.
Just in time it seems.
