Diary of a Teenage Fat Ass
OK so I'm not exactly "teenage"...far from it actually. I'm in my early 30's. However, the fat ass part it pretty much right on the money. See, I've struggled with my weight for biggest part of my adult life. At it's worst it would be nothing for me to polish off a 12 pack of Dr. Pepper in a single day. It was especially difficult in college. I would be on campus in class for 8 hours a day then have to immediately head to work for another 8 hours every....damned....day for roughly 5 years. Well that left me little time to actually cook anything so....needless to say...McDonald's, Burger King, and the oh so delicious Whataburger became my stops of choice. With a completely sedentary lifestyle, you can imagine how much that took its toll on my Godly physique.....ok, I've never had a Godly physique but you get the picture.
Well fast forward to today....right now...this very second I weigh in at an astonishing 392 pounds. I'll let that sink in for a sec....trust me, it sank in pretty quick with me. I immediately became defensive and looked for something to blame other than myself but, in reality, it was my fault and my fault alone. Nobody forced me to eat cheeseburgers and pizza every other day. So, after the initial anger wore off I figured it was time to do something about it. I've been married to a wonderfully supportive wife for only 2 years and I figured I owed it to her to hang around a bit longer. So this is where YOU come in.
I've set up a facebook page titled "Save Dave Fenix". I will be chronicling my difficult journey with frequent status and video updates. I have a plan of attack and starting today, July 9th 2012, That plan has been put into effect. What I want from YOU is accountability. Please feel free to join the page and post messages of encouragement. I don't care if I know you or not. Sometimes, strangers tend to be more honest and upfront than friends who don't want to hurt your feelings. Plus, the more people who join the page the more people there are to hold me accountable. It isn't going to be an easy journey, but it HAS to be done...for my wife's sake, for my sake. So head on over and help "Save Dave Fenix" by clicking here
