I weighed in at 186 pounds on the day I graduated high school back in 1982  Back then I was active, I was in the high school marching band.  I lifted weights, I rode my bicycle everywhere I went and my brother and I cut grass in the neighborhood for extra money.  I remember even then thinking I was overweight.  Little did I know then that I would be really overweight as an adult.

I really didn’t start gaining weight until sometime before I got married. I was living by myself in a mobile home eating out mostly but I did manage to cook on occasion.  I guess sometime after I got married my metabolism slowed down and my weight started creeping upwards rather quickly.  But who was I to impress.  I was already married and had no one to impress.  I thought about my weight on occasion and I would try to diet once in a while but it didn’t last.

If I had known then what I know now (I know, it’s a cliche) I would have tried a little harder and eaten a lot healthier.  We all say that I know.
