Currently, my biggest problem is that I have stabilized in my current weight still between 15-22 lbs off my goal of 225 lbs!
I am on vacation this week so I hope to use it as constructively as possible - my goal is to write, work-out intensively, and resist the temptation to celebrate too much.
Yesterday I drank lots of water, had a Chinese lunch of grilled vegetables and shrimp with no rice, met a kid as a favor to a friend to impart some advice on the advertising trade, then went to a birthday party under slightly false pretenses, then found myself listening to rather mediocre band at Otto's Shrunken Head Tiki bar on the Lower East Side. There were as many people listening in the audience as there were on stage singing. It was a trio. But what I found interesting on this quiet Tuesday night in a small place tucked into the concrete near Stuyvesant Town was that I was not judgemental about the place or the people who were a far cry from my fellow reprobates, nor my typical theatre of operations.
I have been pretty hard on myself, and in the midst of my self-centered tough love about my weight there was some collateral damage in words about other people who struggle with weight. I feel bad about that. I've been too judgemental.
Right, now, although the original Hawaii Five-O is currently on TV much to my utter delight, I must steal myself away and get to the gym, and then the store to buy more vegetables!
