I am continuing my journey to look and feel better. Thanks to exercise, less and better eating and control of my diabetes. Progress is slow but is happening. I hope I can keep all the weight off and keep up this journey.
My weight loss journey continues. It can be a slow journey, but I’ve finally broken the 190 barrier. Today weigh in is approximately 188 pounds. I’m setting a new goal of 175. Then I’ll go from there but as of now NONE of my shorts fit. Even my belt won’t keep my pants up. I’m excited about the change I’ve made over the last several months. Before I started keeping track my weight was nearly 240 pounds in July of the year.
Life has been alright lately. I have settled into my new apartment. I have unpacked 99% of all my stuff. I wasn’t able to unpack all my CD’s yet, as I have no place or way to display them. I have appx 600+ CD’s. I still like physical media. Streaming is great but nothing beats a CD or 4K Disc.
The apartment complex is mostly quiet and no real issues so far. Just had a kitchen sink issue and they have fixed that. I think what I love most are two things. The fact the apartment stays cool, and my first power bill was under $100. Not sure how the next one will be. I think what I like most, after so many years. I love having a washer and dryer. My last apartment had NO hookup so I can have to do it myself and the laundromat or most of the time I paid them to do it. I didn’t want to say at the laundrymat for 4+ hours.
The stress of the move caused me a lot of weight loss. I went from approximately 235+ down to 195-197. I have started to walk daily. Expect when we have a hurricane. I try and walk from 1.25 miles to 2.0 miles a day. Since I have to walk on my lunch, I usually get thirty minuities of walking in and usually get about 1.5 miles. I plan to try and push myself on the weekends when I can walk a little later in the day and have more time to talk. I want to try and do 2.0 to 2.5. I really want to keep the weight off. I feel better, I look a little better, not much. I am still ugly and fat, so I don’t expect to have a boyfriend anytime soon. Hell, I have been single for over 10+ years and I am 47 and in gay terms, I am literarily dead to people. It sucks being alone sometime, but I entertain myself with porn, (lol), Xbox, Nintendo Switch and PC games and well, lots of TV. I watch way too much TV.
Everything else is life is alright. I am still living paycheck to paycheck. The huge increase in rent has taken away all my extra money. So, I have to be careful what I spent my cash on and I am still not very good at that. Would be nice to win the lotto but I have to play it first. I would not know what to do if I won millions and millions of dollars. I’d buy my old apartment (it’s also a business below it) I would then tear it down and let it be an empty lot. I liked the apartment, but it had some issues.
Well, that is all I have for now. That is the latest update. Have a fun weekend and take care!
I think it’s funny that so many so-called “woke” liberals (and I am a liberal Democrat, so don’t come for me) are leaving Twitter because Elon Musk is now the owner of the social media network. I don’t care for Musk, but I plan to stay on Twitter I have no plans to leave. I’ll do what I can do with my small following to keep spreading the facts about the cult of trump and the republican party.
So, “woke’ liberal friends, keep posting yourself posts about how you are leaving Twitter. If you were as “woke” as you say you are, you’d stay in the fight. But I guess it is easier for some “woke” folks to quit Twitter and make a spectacle of it on Facebook and whatever other service you use. Good job, Quitters.
I also wanted to add this quote from President Obama.
@BarackObama: “I understand why people are anxious. I understand why you might be worried about the course of the country. I understand why sometimes it’s tempting just to tune out. […] But I’m here to tell you that tuning out is not an option.”
I’ll say this by the time I actually get unpacked it will be time to move again. I did not enjoy this move at all. I was forced to downsize apartments because my former landlord wanted to move some relatives in. Maybe they will enjoy termite season and also the occasional mouse.
The new apartment is okay. It’s not great. It has a few issues and getting ahold of someone in the office to schedule a repair is a pain in the ass. You open a ticket for a repair online and then at 6:05, the close the fucking ticket saying it has been completed. NO, THE FUCK IT HAS NOT. I still have leaky sink and is starting to form a small lake under my kitchen. This place is closed on the weekends so trying to get something fixed here sounds like it going to be a chore. I am not sure I like this place yet or not. I did accomplish setting up my “office” computer and my thin client for work. So, a few things are coming together but not like I wanted it to be. By the damn time I get unpacked it will probably be time to move again. I don’t want to stay in Lutz long. I don’t know where anything is at and getting around seems to be a chore. Someone is moving in below me today and they are still moving in at this hour making a whole bunch of damn noise. They need to knock that shit off soon. Or I will start stomping my godman feet until they stop. My old apartment had its issues but at least it was quiet, and NO ONE bothered me.
Tomorrow, I plan to do some grocery shopping. I am going to use my gift card I have for Amazon to help me save on food for a couple weeks. Tomorrow morning, I will wake up and have some biscuits and gravy. That’s really all I have here.
I do know this. This was a very tough time for me. It really changed my world up and the people who I thought I could count on for emotional support, well they dropped the fucking ball. I’m somewhat angry and bitter about it and probably will be for some time. Even some of my Tampa friends (if I can call them that) really dropped the ball also. When life gets tough your true friends will come out others will just hide away and make fucking excuses. I have a long memory when it comes to crap like that.
Other than that, I don’t have a lot to say. I am just trying to figure this whole mess out. It just feels so damn odd to be in this apartment and not my old apartment for fourteen years. I sure over time I will get used to it. But do I really want to? I don’t see myself staying here for fourteen years, but rent is too expensive. There is no reason for it. Just a bunch of rich people trying to get richer at the expense of others. Just when everything was on track for me to get better and more stability. This moves bullshit happens. It would be nice if I could just enjoy life but no. Something always has to get in the fucking way. I’m tired of it!!
