|New & improved Stephen.|
Life at this time was not the same as before as there were many challenges before me. As a teacher, I have always found myself eating in staff rooms or among groups of people. Being 6’5 and 400 pounds, some would expect me to stroll into the staff room with a whole cow in my lunch box, not bean salad with whole grain crackers. At first, I wondered what people would say, or how many creative ways they would come up with to make fun of me. As it turned out, right from the start, the ones who I thought would give me most of the ribbing are the ones that asked the most questions about my new way of eating. They are also the ones who began leaving the bags of chips at home and replacing them with some almonds and raisins. Lol
Next time I’ll talk about “Eat more to lose more” and telling a certain girl I’m more of a “spinach and quinoa kinda guy than steak and potatoes”. If she laughs with you, she’s a keeper.
Till next time,
