I’ve been going largely nowhere.  Last Thanksgiving I started trying to do something about my weight.  I had reached 350 pounds, had no energy, no endurance and generally felt like crap all of the time.

Since that time I have tried several diet plans and variations on exercise and I have gotten exactly nowhere in my efforts.  Oh I have changed my eating habits by quite a bit for the better.  I’m learning to find better foods with lower calorie counts on sale and load up on them when I do find ’em.  I also make it a point to get in some exercise time daily (in fact, that’s when I shoot the video for my Vlog, while I’m on the exercise bike).

Of course, that exercise bike is a joke.  It broke last winter and I’ve been using it anyway, even though the seat is gone, by sitting on a chair behind it.

It’s not much but at least it’s something.  What I really need to do is more walking.  The problem with that is that I’m not even ready to go walking around the block or anything like that.  Instead, I’m thinking more about something like this Bowflex Treadmill which would be great to replace the broken down treadmill that doesn’t work and is too flipping hard to move with it’s motor not running that I have now.

Then I could spend as much time on it at a time as I am able without having to be concerned about being too far from home when my endurance runs out and end up not being able to make it home without collapsing.  (that’s a real issue with me these days!)

That sounds a heck of a lot safer doesn’t it?

Now all I need to do is convince a rich person to buy it for me.

That’s gonna happen.  Isn’t it?

Yep.  Any second now.
