I know I’ve needed to go on a diet for a long time. But really, I thought I wasn’t doing too bad because I was using the same belt holes. Well, I looked a little closer and I had busted through the holes–maybe 4 or 5 of them. The belt is one of those leather weaved mesh belts where the holes are not really holes but spots where the leather strands cross each other. My pants were a little tighter, but no big deal.
However, a couple things happened near one another and I decided to give it a go. I now had motivation. Or maybe shame…
- Weighed myself and said “wow”. Was getting up there, close to my all time max.
- My wife was having trouble sleeping and she played a recording of me snoring. This was probably the final straw, but there is more.
- My back was hurting. I think it was due to the extra weight.
- When I tried to do my back exercises, my gut was in the way.
Glad to say I am not disturbing my wife’s sleep anymore.
