I will start posting again

Monday, December 20, 2010

I have not blogged for a while. My last post was from june 2010. The reason was simple I invested my time in something else.

In april 2010 I was hospitalized for one week. The doctors diagnosed diverticulitis. It is a disease that is more often diagnosed on older men (grrrrr, I'm not that old!). But they saw it more and more on younger men with overweight.

I was 121kg (266 pounds) on a length of 1,87m1 (6,14 foot). Off course I knew for a long time this was not a good thing for my health. But it was hard to get it right between the ears and do something about it. Being in that hospital for a week I made a commitment to myself and my family, "I am going to lose some weight".

My goal was being 100 kg (220 pounds). I started running, bicycling, and eat less. I told my friends I would not drink beer or alcohol until I reached my goal.

The sporting took a lot of time in the evenings, time that I could not spend on writing on my blog. It was just a matter of setting my goals right. I reached my goal in september 2010. Men did I have a ball with my friends that night. For the first time a good dutch beer (or two, three…..).

I know am 93 kg (205 pounds). When I was 100kg I changed my goal to 91kg. When I reach that I can say I lost 30kg (66 pounds).

I now have the courage to blog again. I'll keep on sporting so I think I lower my blogposts (one post every one or two weeks?) a bit. I just can't stop writing on my one favorite hobby: fountain pens, notebooks, journaling etc.
