What Happened To Fatman?

So it's been a while since I posted an entry here. I'm truly sorry about that. I want to say though that it humbles me the amount of people that sent me messages asking where I was. You guys are great! I can't say I was totally 100% in compliance during my absence but it's no where near as bad as it could have been. During this time I found out I have people watching me and I can thank you all for getting me back on track. One good thing I can take from this time away is that I STILL have not had a soda. Not a sip! My downfall though was bread. I did have my fair share of the white devil but I see what it does to me know and it ends tonight.

Also during this time off, I fell back into my rut with gaming. I can see what a damaging effect it has had on my life in the past 12 days. I honestly consider myself a gaming addict. I have to find a way to pull myself off of this computer and get things done. I will be working on this in the coming days. The only way I think I can do this is to put myself on a strict schedule and stick to it. There is so much other stuff that I need and want to do but I have no time for because of my addiction. If I schedule in my time and stick to it, hopefully that will limit these disappearances. I am hoping to start with a walk at 5 am in the morning and possibly add in dumbbell training in the evening after work.

I also fell off on my walking during my absence. Funny thing is I got the back brace to help me and that's when I pretty much threw in the towel. That back brace, by the way, is EXACTLY what I needed. When I did walk with it, my back did not kick in until I was almost finished with 30 minutes of walking. It is amazing! Now I cant wait to start back up and get this done so I don't have to wear it to walk.

I haven't weighed myself since last Tuesday but as of Tuesday I was down another 2 lbs. I'm sure that will go up on the next weigh in this Tuesday, but like I said, I know what I need to do and I plan on doing it!

I'll keep it short tonight, but just know I'm back and will be trolling Yall's posts again real soon. Thank you again for calling me out FogDog, Scott and Mrs. FatMan. I don't know what I would do without you! You guys ROCK!

Now enough of this chatter and let's get this done! Yall be GREAT!!


  1. Glad I could help and you can count on more of the same in the weeks an months ahead just as I expect people to call me out as well.

    I know the struggles of being a gaming addict. There was a time in my life when I had 2 suped up PCs that I built myself and me and Mrs. FogDog would spend every waking (non-work) hour playing the Diablo series side by side in the spare bedroom(Man that takes me back). I would build character sets and actually sell the accounts on Ebay!

    From Diablo it was on to Neverwinter Nights, Dungeon Siege, Tribes, Tribes II. You name it and I probably played it for while.

    My saving grace was when the gaming companies starting coming out with the "pay to play model" with games like World of Warcraft and Everquest. I couldn't bring myself to pay a monthly fee to play a game so I just stopped playing. I still get addicted to playing games now and then, but now it's more like killing time with free apps and I play with my kids instead (I'm currently playing clash of clans and teaching my kids how to build epic bases).

    Anyway, glad to see you put up a post and it sounds like the damage wasn't too bad. Keep at it my friend, I'm watching you.

    1. I did not mean to remove your comment Dfreeman. These stupid fat fingers of mine were trying to go to the post to reply and they hit delete instead and I can't find a way to undo it. Time to stop looking at myblog stats on my phone. Sorry again.

  3. I have a feeling a little bump along your road to a healthy lifestyle won't derail you. Left, right, left - just keep marching on as Holly from 300 lbs down would say ;-)

    1. ok got it fixed but I couldn't figure out how you got that emoticon on there. I'm still learning so please excuse the error. I welcome and enjoy reading everyones comments and certainly did not mean to delete your comment.

  4. No problem. Hope all goes well for you this week.
