I am not overweight, nor have I ever been, but I know it is a struggle. However, I do know and love people who are overweight. I know they struggle
and leading a hectic life is no help. It really cuts down on the time of fixing yourself a good meal or even exercise when a person works all day,
does school work at night and is also a parent at night and weekends are not far different from weekdays.
I admit I have a difficult time half the time with my son, the other half he minds perfectly. At school or with other people he does exactly as he is
told to do. I think he pushes my buttons most of the time either for attention or to see if I will let him get away with things. He is very smart at
figuring out how to read people.
I refuse to eat any of the chain fast food places. Either they have angered me in the past or their food was totally disgusting the last time I was
there. I admit I do though splurge on some places from time to time. I enjoy Arby's, Subway, and a place around here called Culver's. It is a fast
food place but they make your burgers like a mom and pop place with butter buns and they make your order when you order it so nothing is old and
nasty. I also sometimes eat Long John Silver's and on date night we go to Red Lobster.
I am not saying I eat incredibly healthy though. Because of my hours being so different from my wife's hours we eat a lot of microwave or oven baked
foods. Also because of our hours we go to the store for food once a month and buy a supply of food. If the power goes out for any length of time
though we lose a lot of food depending on the time of year and how long before that we went to the store. One spring I bet we lost over a hundred
dollars of food (over a week's worth of food), it was sad.
I do exercise as regularly as I can though. A few times a week (as long as it is warm and sunny) I ride my bike. I can go 16 miles in 47 min. I need
to get into some other forms of exercise but then I would have less time for ATS
