Two years from start. August 26, 2008 at 7:59 pm

On August 11th two years ago I started the 20/20 lifestyles program at 328 pounds.  That wasn’t my all time highest weight, but it still was very large.  A couple weeks back was August 11th again and I was planning on reflecting on my progress.  Not everything has been perfect.  In fact the last 4-5 weeks have been very bad. 

My diet has been awful and I haven’t been exercising regularly for the last 3 weeks.  OK I have an excuse for this, but it still bothers me. 

The week before my 2 year start anniversary I had to stop cycling.  You can read all about "saddle sores" and I can attest that "painful" is an apt description.  However once that cleared up something else came and visited.  For the last couple of weeks I have had various symptoms that in and of themselves weren’t overly worrisome to me.  In fact for the most part I was able to work through the various issues and I actually was able to make it to the gym a few times.  However, the day after each of the gym visits resulted in MORE days off from the gym.  (All gastrointestinal type of symptoms that various Pepto commercials satirize.)

Thursday and Friday of last week finally beat me to a pulp.  I ~should~ have seen my doctor on Friday, but I didn’t even make it out of bed until 3 or 3:30 in the afternoon.  Then I ~really~ should have gone to a "local care" type of place.  But I am smarter than that!  Ha.  I waited until Money to make an appointment with my doc.  He was concerned enough to order a slew of tests and send me home with a strong antibiotic. 

I’ll know more later.  He wasn’t going to offer a diagnosis without the tests. 

At this point I will be happy to be able to get back to some more physical stuff or even go for a ride!
