OK, so I've received a few comments about my last post. Several of you are concerned, and I thank you for checking up on me!
However, I should let you know that I am not depressed! Our marriage is NOT in trouble, nor do I have any serious condition. My wife and I HAVE been talking...I probably should never have put her in this equation! My point was supposed to be that I feel like I have been neglecting some relationships in my life, including my wife, my son, and the teenagers from my church.
All the other stuff is quite true, though. The heartburn, the restless nights. I am trying to capture how I feel when I am very overweight.
So, I hope I didn't scare you too badly! But please understand that I am NOT depressed...I am DETERMINED!! This is just a little experiment to compare the way I felt over the holidays (stuffed, sluggish, sick) and see how I feel after we begin to make some changes.
By the way, we have started working out this week and eating better (smaller portions, but more meals per day.) I feel IMMEDIATE results...I am actually HUNGRY, and not just eating because it is lunchtime. The heartburn has almost disappeared.
I want to continue to see how my body reacts and feels. Sorry for scaring you. Hope you aren't too scared to journey with me!!
Love you all. God bless. Franklin
