Today I'm very proud of myself...VERY unusual for me! [View all]

As I mentioned in a previous post, I spent 17 long and awful days in the hospital this past February with a BASTARD of a case of Cellulites. Speaking as a 28 year cancer survivor and a recovering alcoholic of 26+ years, I can honestly say that I'd never felt sicker than those 27 horrendous days.

The day I went into the hospital, I weighed 378 pounds. I was put on a special diet and after 4 days I weighed 391 pounds. That was the closest that I came to signing out AMA because I remember snapping to the nutritionist that I could fail on a diet all by myself! F course, if I HAD signed out AMA, my wife would have kicked my ass until my nose bled!

The long and short of this is that while I was told that I had Cellulites, I looked at it as a case of "scare the hell out of Jackites", and knew that it was time to stop playing with myself and get serious about my weight. I've made the adjustments that I've known that I needed to make for years and got determined to make a permanent change.

As of this morning, I weigh 314 pounds. I know that I still have a long way to go to reach my initial goals, but I now see the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel. 77 pounds is a big deal and I'm determined to reach 100 pounds off and decide where to go from there. Once I get OUT of the 300s, I'm determined to never be back IN them again

Anyway, I just wanted to share this with you. Thank you for reading!
