Decisions, decisions...

I have never been known as a person with a very high self esteem. In fact, I would say exactly the opposite. For many years, I considered myself downright ugly, and even wondered how in the world did Gaby think it was a good idea keeping me. I could imagine her say "Yessss, I'll take that one. Does he have any warranty, though?" "What do you mean, refurbished?".

Well, somehow, I am now pleased with the way I look. I don't know if it is the abundance of grey hair, or my hair and beard carefully trimmed, or the wrinkles, but the fact is that I somehow like what the mirror shows.

The problem begins from the neck down. I've never been this overweight, and it worries me. I am only 40, and I have 4 kids. I love my family very dearly, and have decided that it'd be cool if I could stick around for a while. So here's what I'm going to do, starting tomorrow, and at least until the end of the summer:

* No more than two cans of pop per week
* No more bread, unless it's used to contain a burger and some cheese.
* No more random snacks. Limit will be a muffin or a croissant per day.
* No more junk food, unless it's absolutely necessary (i.e. I didn't bring any lunch).

I'll keep track of my progress and will post the updates right here. Just knowing that other people might read will make me stick to this diet.
