Learning the Hard Way

Figured something out today I should have known. Once you start to wean your body off foods you KNOW aren’t good for it, don’t ever go back! I can do a burger and fries at Red Robin, Applebees, and Johnny Rockets. I can NOT handle McDonalds or Burger King any more. Yeah, tasted good while I was eating. But now my stomach hurts like hell, and I have a migraine on tap.

That said…. I am officially down 50 pounds in the last year. Most of that is from cutting certain foods from my diet completely, restricting some others, walking a mile most nights, using stairs instead of elevators/escalators, and moving more at work. I’ve gone from a size 24 jeans back down to a size 18… and I have some space in those, depending on where they are made.

Everyone is scrambling to get the Covid 19 vax. Mom and I are on two seperate waiting lists; her for people over 65, and me for essential workers with under-laying conditions. The whole thing is a mess, thanks to the last administration… they had NOTHING planned. Just my opinion: it should have been done by county, then levels. Having people try to make appointments through the state is a major FU. The state is trying to send people from the Capital District to BUFFALO or SYRACUSE. Honest to all the gods, who has time or funds to drive 4 or 5 HOURS for a vaccine? Because I know, if the people who are doing this do not, driving back directly after receiving the shot is NOT a good idea. All I am going to want to do is curl up and sleep for 12 to 48 hours.

    I did Keto and intermittent fasting for 18 months.
    No Booze.
    Walked 10 miles a day (I was a security guard–so easy)
    Went from 249 lbs to 174–My GF at the time said it was not a good look for me; Too skinny.
    So I went out, bought a case of beer and four Big Macs.
    Rest is History.
