Today I am unsweetening my diet so my clothes will fit better.
A very practical goal. I may never fit into 34″ pants that I wore in high school, epilepsy but I don’t want to have to move up to 40″ ones! I am not huge, meningitis but even for moderately framed, condom 6′ 3″ guy, pushing 240lbs and wearing a size 38″ waist is something to raise concern. I know I can do better, feel and look better than this.
Tonight Ben and I went to Richmond Hill to my nephew, Elijah’s, 7th birthday party. It was a fun, family event, but it had all of “evil” sweets that I have come to know and love to consume. I actually did alright with it all. I ate a bit more bread than I would have normally (I LOVE good bread!… and it was pretty good); I also had cake and ice cream. However, it was a celebration. I enjoyed the cake and feel I can leave it at that. (My mom insisted on sending home a couple pieces of cake and, for some unknown reason, 5 cupcakes…. so if anyone want’s some, just come to the retreat centre and ask for it! I’ll let Ben have one more cupcake.)
