It’s time to start taking care of me…

I gained all the weight back these past few months. I was back at my heaviest. I am a short guy, so this is not a good situation for my health. I have lost most of what I regained, but I have decided that I am going to take care of myself and finally lose … Continue reading It’s time to start taking care of me…

A rude awaking

Yesterday, I had an awakening on my health. I am not young (nor do I consider myself old). I am a 58 years old man. I am obese and physically out of physical shape. I have Cerebral Palsy which after many years of impact walking has resulted with osteoarthritis in my hips, lower-back and my … Continue reading A rude awaking

This lock-down

This lock-down is taking its toll on me and I need to express myself. I have been working from home since April 1st, 2020.

It's a brisk morning though and one can feel the chill in the air. … Continue reading Got to keep moving

Little changes and lifetime habits

I was out with my partner last night to catch the play Beautiful: The Carole King Musical at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre. We walked, mainly uphill, from the SkyTrain station to the theatre (Something that nearly did me in – energy wise). This morning, I decided to do something about it. For me, diets and … Continue reading Little changes and lifetime habits

I gained my weight back and I’m pissed off at myself

I gained my weight back and I’m pissed off at myself; that’s okay, piss off is good. It helps get me motivated for change. I never started gaining weight until I was sixteen. By my early twenties, I started to realize I was putting on pounds – I still did nothing about it (I should … Continue reading I gained my weight back and I’m pissed off at myself
