Today I got on the scales and weighed 241 pounds ... and that's without my gallbladder, which I had removed in November. After the traumatic experience of weighing, I needed to go to church to confess and repent of gluttony. That's simply too much weight for me to be packing around. I'm not 6'4." So, I've decided, once and for all, to finally do something about it. Yeah, I've gone on diets before and have lost weight at times but I've never really been committed to it. Now, I am.
