Moved to Austin in July 2015, I can’t say it has been all I dreamed, thought, or even hope it would be but there have been some upsides. I guess the most surprising is in my physical self. Dad told me once to quit worrying about my weight, there would come a time my metabolism would change. I remember laughing and telling him that wasn’t how metabolism worked. I told him the older you get the wider you got, thus the middle-aged spread. He laughed.
September 2015. Topping the scales at nearly 400 pounds.
August 2017. Topping the scales at just above 200.
The kids still laugh when I come home with new clothes that I have to return because they try to fall off, I still look at some place I have to squeeze through and think, “too big to fit” but could actually walk through it without squeezing.
Okay Daddy, that laughter I hear from above can stop, you were right. Even out metabolism is abnormal.
