I think this new job could positively or negatively effect my health. Obviously I'll be sitting most of the time. But I'll have more structure to my days too. These next few weeks could be a great opportunity to eat modestly so I don't have to use the restroom too much. It will be interesting how things go once I start the driving full time.

Hopefully "Bob" the mechanic can fix my car tomorrow and I can feel even better.

I mean, there are so many positives to eating better and exercising more. I've talked about this stuff for years. But now that I"m near 4 bills and middle-aged doing those things seem more urgent than ever. I'm planning on going to the gym this afternoon. Gotta take it one day at a time. Smaller meals, less sugar and more more. That's the plan.

The last few days have not been good. Had a major sugar relapse with some Ben & Jerrys and Coke. I think about my next meal constantly. I'm a food addict. And its my responsibility to arrest this compulsion. It's hard but I need to keep FIGHTING!
Tonight I broke the toilet seat in the bathroom. How embarrasing. Especially since I share the bathroom. Obviously I will get another one asap. Another sign of my morbid obesity.

Well, today I made some small changes. Assuming I don't go out and buy any food, today will be the first day in many months that I haven't had any sweets. Stuff like candy, ice cream, shakes, regular soda, etc. I'm pretty sure I'm addicted to sugar. I don't want to completely abstain from it (after all sugar is in A LOT of foods) but in my ideal world it would be a treat reserved for special occasions. Or at most once a week or so. Not everyday like I've been doing recently.
I also didn't really eat too bad today. Kept things modest and tried to spread my food out more evenly throughout the day. And... I went on a short hike and walked the dogs this evening. Overall, a pretty good day. When I lay my head down to rest I'm fairly certain I'll feel proud of my actions today. And maybe I can string a few more of these type of days together?
