Ok, So you're killing yourself with mass quantities of food.


Have you tried meditation? Here, let me give you a mantra, With each mouth full, (two chickens, six eggs, w/mayo), silently say to yourself ,
"my life is killing me"

Mantras should only be positive. Try, "I can control myself" instead.

"3 Months, 72 Pounds"













I am doing better..... really I am. I have another plan. At least I had better have another plan! At the rate I am going, I might be dead or knocking on Deaths Door in a matter of months. It does not take a Scientist or Doctor to understand that weight is a big indicator or major health problems.

ukmum,

I WILL get it right pretty damn soon!!!!

Rest assured!

I weighed myself a few moments ago and came in at 225.

25 of those pounds will be gone very quickly - but the stars have not lined up yet.

Yesterday was a big workout day. Lifted to exaustion. Did 15 flights of stairs.

I ate around 1500 calories.

I switched to 24 oz of black coffee, no sugar. And no sugar drinks. No alcohol for about a month. Weight down to 220.

This is going to be slow, but i feel good about how i am doing it.

There is a lot going on.

I am still lifting. I noticed yesterday that i am starting to hit "unlimited". I have not touched upon that in 30 years. Basically, it means i lift and do not hit exaustion. I did not expect it. I was preocupied. I do not eant to increase weight due to potential injury..... But it might be time.

I do not know how to express my mental an physical health. I express it here as best I can within limits.

I am collecting more numbers from more health experts.

Overall, I am quite concerned. Personally concerned. I am highly intelligent - and that has always worked against me in some ways. I am now having to deal with those issues. I am a spiritual person, a sort-of scientist, a long time multi businesses owner. etc. etc. etc.

I am trying to get my weight down.

I am trying to deal with stress.

I am trying to deal with a crazy Wife. A hoarder.

I am trying to deal with a brilliant Daughter.

I am dealing with THREE (3) DAMN(!!!!!!!!!!) Businesses. I am going crazy.

My "last" business was 24 years. Bus #2 is now 4 years, bus #3 is 4 years, bus 3 is 3 years. I am going crazy. I can not and will not continue to do this . It is killing me. I have not failed in business. Success is killing me. I am getting close to the edge.

I am now working with Dow, Nikon, USDA, Monsanto....

I have to say that my work is getting really, really, good. I might get Zika killed?

I am just out there.

I know I have to lose weight. I am trying. I am still lifting. I am still walking. I did 4 miles today.

I do not want to lift now as I think I need to let all rest for 4 days.

I am currently losing weight at a regular rate, since January. You MUST stop drinking. Period. Forever. Think of it that way.

There may be a day that you can drink socially, when you go out to eat, or not.

But you have to do it, and categorize it as a Forever thing.

NO alcohol.

I just do not know what to say. My Wife can stress me out to the point of a heart attack. I I feel like I am going to pass out. I have meds to take to fight the stress she creates - but they are as bad as the meds I have taken for yesrs (alcohol). We all have to get along. I am trying to make thing work.

I now have close to 1600 cook books with about 400 magazines. She will NOT let me cook!!! Keep in mind, I have ran a retail store for 24 years and currently have 2 engineering companies. I would trade my companies for the life I wish to have. Only my dog understands me!

Intelligence is not talent, especially if it's tempered with practice. If I hand you a violin and ask you to play Paganini, you will not be able to do so.

Intelligence is not love or compassion. Albert Einstein was cold and horrid to his wife, and a philanderer.

In short, Andy, intelligence is not fungible; you almost certainly cannot use it to solve your own problems, which is what you're trying to do. You cannot choose the proper antibiotic for your pneumonia, or auscultate your lungs to diagnose it, or read the Xray that confirms it. You only can recognize that you have a cough and a fever and they're getting worse, and then see a doctor.

Get some help, Andy, before you crash.
