First, an apology - that's not my photo. I'm seriously camera-shy. But it is a sorta famous guy who everybody says "You look just like xx" when they see me. Except that the hair is more gray now, for both of us.
-High school weight 185
-Age 30, dropped to 170, doing "Nutri-System" with then-girlfriend
-Age 33, new job, everybody was a runner and I joined them. Dropped to 155 without effort. More energy, emotional stamina, endurance than ever.
-Age 36, dumped girlfriend, employer went bankrupt, got depressed, dropped to 135 and organs began to shut down. Doc put me on a Big Mac diet, I got back up to 150.
-Age 37, first job with Fortune 500 company. Stress and long hours helped me gain almost 5 pounds a year.
-Age 47, move to small company and from city to country, dropped to 165 in a few years and held steady. Loved running the country roads.
-Age 53, small company bought by Big company, stress and long hours, 180 came fast.
-Age 54, regained control, back to 165.
-Age 55, major layoff, frantic job search, depression, lost to 160.
-Age 57, have been with lots of badly-run companies, some famous. Now 185. Done with it.
The last job was the end of it. 57 years of being frugal means I don't need much, so I just quit. I'll do something else, just not sure what.
For a month I've reduced home junkage, practiced piano, run 3-4 times a week, see a little weight loss. Generally trying to decide when I'm "done" getting ready to start a company and then do it.
Weight reduction plan:
Mostly involves running
Partly involves not over-indulging
Interference will come from the high-maintenance SO and her drama, which tends to stress me and I react by over-eating.
We all have challenges, I'm hoping to figure out how to best handle mine.
