Writing about stuff

El Porco, Tubby-Custard, Fat Girl.

Three of the many and numerous nicknames that I have had over the years.

Now, let me be clear. These names were used in jest and by people that know me well. No offence was intended or taken. Nevertheless, I would recommend caution before you try any of those on for size; you could end up with a punch in the nose.

The point is that my frame was…on the ample side.

In fact, my frame is still on the ample side. I have lost 55 pounds over the last 6 months, but I’m still not where I want to be.

Partially, this post is a brag. I have lost some weight, and I feel good about it. I’m celebrating buying a jacket with no x’s in the size.

Perhaps I should be putting an affiliate link or two here, guiding you all to the magic formula.

Instead, I’ll say this.

I started with a notebook and writing some goals.

Then I wrote some steps that I was confident that I could take to move me closer to those goals.

  1. Drink water
  2. Eat slowly and deliberately
  3. Walk to work
  4. Avoid processed sugars
  5. Reduce processed food

If you want to lose weight, start there.

Take it from Tubby-Custard.
