Before long, I had lost enough weight to up the exercise game
I’ve decided that I need to change my approach to living. This was never more apparent when I tipped the scales at nearly 250 pounds just last year. And I’m a man of average height so that’s a lot of weight. All those years of being sedentary at work in the zone controlled HVAC of the office and then at home in my own HVAC took its toll. You just can’t sit that much and not risk affecting your health. When I weighed in at the doctor’s office so heavy, my physician just looked at me as though what was it going to take. Did I want to drop dead in the zone controlled HVAC at my desk at work. Yet, it all seemed so overwhelming. And losing 70 pounds is a really daunting challenge indeed. But it’s not impossible. I started with getting out of that zone controlled HVAC of the office at lunch. I’ve always sort of eaten at my desk here and there. So I kept that grazing approach and just switched in all sorts of healthy food. Lunch time was for me to get out of the air conditioning and get in a good walk. Once I came home, it wasn’t straight to the recliner for air conditioning and too much food. I ate an early, healthy dinner and then got out of the HVAC once again for another walk. Before long, I had lost enough weight to up the exercise game. I took advantage of swimming, bike rides and even a session or two inside the quality heating and air of the gym. I’m down almost 40 pounds so more than half way there!
