You may be wondering what has all of a sudden spurred me into this lifestyle change. You may not but tough tits for you because you get to find out anyway.
A couple of weeks ago I read Confessions of a Reformed Dieter by AJ Rochester.
I could have been reading my life story. Seriously.
She hit a few nerves and got me thinking, planning, thinking some more.
Last Monday evening I had to carry a 25kg (55 lb) sack of pig food pellets in from the truck. I hauled the bag up onto my ample shoulder and staggered into the laundry where I keep the animal feeds. It was a distance of 10 metres, I was huffing and really burdened by that weight.
And then it hit me..... I am burdened by this 25kg yet I carry twice as much as this in extra weight. What the hell am I doing to myself? I literally stagger around every day with 50kg (110 lbs) of excess weight and I wonder why some days are a struggle.
What was your light bulb moment, or are you yet to have one?
