I am a middle aged American man who is extremely obese and a former "Freestyle Eater". I want to change my lifestyle and learn to eat to live rather than living to eat. This is not going to be just a diet change to lose weight, it's a life change. I want to eat well and improve my fitness. This blog is an outlet for me and a record of my journey which began on January 1st, 2010, Stalled in April of 2010 and restarted in April of 2012
We entertained family tonight and the evening was loaded with potential food hazards. Had a reasonable serving of my wife's lasagna, 2 turkey meatballs and some salad. Prior to dinner I had some baby carrots and a small piece of cheddar cheese. All in all I did well considering how I would have behaved if I was still freestyle eating. Have to make sure I stay away from the leftovers...especially the brownies.
