I was thinking today that I must sound like a whiner much of the time. All things considered, though, most things in my life are pretty good. This morning, I was driving to a hotel to do a deposition, and I felt good--very good. I was surprised. It's possible that this was because I went to the gym yesterday. Maybe it was just a good day.
In any event, I was reading www.whoatemyblog.com, a blog by a guy who has lost over 200 pounds and still weighs over 400 pounds. Where to begin. He has posted two photos recently of NSVs--non-scale victories. One was fitting into a seat at a stadium for the first time (and the attendant ease of going to the game) and one was fitting behind the seat of a Honda Element, a vehicle he'd wanted to buy but couldn't because he was too fat. I'm really happy for the guy. I have never been too fat to fit behind the wheel of a car. I haven't ever been too fat to sit in a stadium seat (not saying they've all been the most comfortable places to park it). I've always been a long way from 600 pounds. In fact, this dude outweighs me by a lot, even now.
But damn, good for him. I hope he sticks with it for a long time.
