I'm Back

Hello All,

Well it's been a while, and I just haven't had time to get the basic requirements in life covered - let alone blogging. But I found 10 minutes spare and thought I'd say hello.......that's if anyone is still checking this blog? Hellooooooooooooooooo !

Anyway most things are going well, work is going great and just had an excellent review from my Manager which was very satisfying as I have only been managing this business for 9 months and things have really turned around! And I think I am providing the direction, motivation and environment for the staff to deliver their best......so work all happy :)

Home is getting more challenging with my kids getting older and becoming more independent and let's call it "strong willed". To be honest my daughter aged 15 is getting more distant each day, and is not even speakiing to me half of the time, which isn't good but I am working on that challenge. My son who is 16 is doing a traineeship at KFC, which is going well.... he too can be a handful!

The days are not far away when the Chicks will fly the coup, and then it will be HAPPY DAYS!!!! Not that I want them to leave but as they have gotten older and their behaviour worsens it has been putting addition stress on the relationship with my wife. When we are "kid free" we get on like we used to as best mates....... but just add the kid drama and things aren't much fun and stressful for us both.

The diet is non existent and I have put on a shitload of weight and now weigh just under 140kg's which in any ones terms is way too fat. I have made a decision that will hopefully change my life, on 4/8/09, I am booked in for Lapband surgery. I am going to use this as a tool to restrict my eating........ as I drop a bit of weight my intent is to get back into some exercise and run my body like the machine it is - or used to be! ( calories in less calories burned up = fat)
I plan to be putting in minimal calories and burning up allot of fat, so I should be back to my fighting weight of 90kg's easily within the next 12 months. I haven't been under the 100kg mark in 15 years and I am going to fix that real soon.

Being overweight / obese or whatever name you want to give it - is really the only negative thing in my life at the moment, and I tell you what - I am going to fix that problem the same as I conquer other challenges in life......... The time has come!!!

Anyway if you are still reading thanks for your interest! please leave a comment and say hello. My intent is to turn this blog into a bit of a weight loss journal.... I took my before pictures last night so might put them up in my next post - as long as I don't scare people off :)

All the best

Love Reg Reagan xxx
