To make a better place you have to be the best you…

But whats the best you?

Why this blog? Motivation, keep me on the straight and narrow. Make sure this commitment lasts….

My wife thinks it’s because it became a competition; I don’t know. I like to think I did it for my son. It’s not that I favour him at all but he is six. I am forty six. He didn’t choose to have an old Dad; and he certainly didn’t choose to have a fat old Dad.

In early January 2018 I paid a visit to my GP to have a chat about how it was going with the thyroid specialist he had referred me to and pick up the thyroxin I now needed as my theme levels were now where they should be and I now in theory had a metabolism?

He himself expressed he needed to lose some weight and had done some research and found a product he believed was a good one and did I fancy jumping on board? I did and we planned to meet fortnightly; this kind of cemented my pledge to him and so my experience began.

I started writing this book in June; reflecting on notes Id made. Looking at internet browsing history, back at the health apps on my phone and primarily I think because I had achieved a lot and wanted to maintain where I had found myself and still wanted to improve. Maintaining a status quo was always the challenge; I understand that there are as many neurons in the gut as there is in a cat’s brain. These neuron need to be conditioned to accept a body condition and that this is a two year exercise. After two years these neurons finally accept this state; so a flat line has to be produced for two years. So when I hit June my body weight was where I wanted it to be so my two year process started now. I still had work to do; I wanted the belly wobble gone, eat real food and not bars and shakes and could not find the resource I needed. So I would produce it and this would keep me on the straight and narrow……. There had been some near misses. Four beers would mean a kilo on.
