Happy New Year and welcome to my new diary and blog. This is where I will be conducting weekly weigh ins and posting photos to chronicle what i hope to be a very trans-formative year for my long term health.
The short version of my story is that I am currently 53 years old and am in relatively good health. However, I have battled obesity most of my adult life and know that the excess pounds are sure to catch up with me if left unchecked. I plan to make Sunday Morning Selfie a way to stay accountable and learn ways to be healthy as the year progresses.
Since today is New years Day and my first time blogging I will keep this short and give yo the bottom line. At my peak I was over 300 lbs, a really GREAT place for me to be is under 200 lbs. And as of this moment 01/01/17 I am at …. drum roll…… 256 lbs.
Obviously there is much work to be done and I will be changing my eating habits quite a bit.
But for this week I will offer one simple rule to institute. THE MOUTH CLOSES AT 8:00 pm! My promise to myself this week is to consume NO CALORIES after 8:00 all week. When prime time TV starts the snacking stops.
Happy New Year and thanks for checking out Sunday Morning Selfie.
Good Health and Go Hawks! Joe
