As I’ve said in previous blog posts, I like to eat. A lot. A few years back I lost all the weight I gained in college, and I was the most trim I’d EVER been. I lost approximately 30 pounds. Sadly I wasn’t able to maintain it and I gained it all back. I’ve been talking it over with Vanessa, and both of my folks have been beating me over the head  about it, and I think I’m going to finally take charge and try to lose some of the weight.

I figure I can work on 10 pounds, and take it from there. If I just lose the 10 I think I’ll have accomplished something good. The thing is I don’t feel bad about the weight. Ok sure, some of the pants that I have previously felt more baggy then they do now. They’re getting pretty snug. Other than that, I don’t feel at all uneasy. Now granted I’m still young, and this is when the mind kicks in and tells me that I may regret my current passiveness towards it as I get older. That little seed of doubt has been growing. That’s why I’ve finally decided I need to start working out again. Even if I don’t lose all the weight, just doing some type of excersise regiment on a daily basis will be good for me.

Now onto another positive thing. I posted a while back that I had gotten The Beatles: Rock Band. One of my first blog postings was about when I got Walking Pneumonia in January, and because of that I got Bell’s Palsey and up until around April I was talking like I had just come from the Dentist after being shot up with Novocaine. Not a good feeling.

A few weeks of therapy later, and the right side of my face had gone mostly back to normal. I still can’t make a complete smile, but that’s the only bother I have. Well, ever since I started singing along with the songs in The Beatles: Rock Band, I’ve noticed that the right side of my face is beginning to involuntarily twitch. I think the singing is starting to wake up the nerves in my face that are still dormant and I hope that if I keep doing this that hopefully by next year my face will be completely back to normal.

Rene’s song of the day: “With A Little Help From My Friends” by The Beatles.
