"Gluttony is not a secret vice." - Orson Welles
I am fat.
When I started this adult onset athletic endeavor, I rationalized that I would do this get my body composition under control. I was doing ok until a few months ago when traveling ramped up and I lost focus on what I was eating. I started training again and got hungrier. This cycle repeated itself and was magnified by holiday noshing. I started noticing the clothes were getting tight.
One of the "gifts" that MrsRockStar got for herself this Christmas was to pay a service to convert all of our old video tapes onto DVDs. She has been spending time watching these videos (even the ones where someone, NOT ME, takes a 20 minute film of their shoe or the ones where the soundtrack is the phrase "Is this on?" repeated over and over). She commented that I am one of the few that actually in better shape now than then. That may mean that the bar is set fairly low sinceI'm still down a significant amount of weight - with the recent weight gain maybe a little less significant amount of weight though.
I'm embarrassed to say how much weight I've gained but realized it was time for an intervention. I rejoined Weight Watchers and am feeling some success already. There is a whole new Weight Watcher's program but I really join it for the nagging and guilt.
Hey, whatever works.
