|Watch out you fat pig!|
I actually have some fat pants now because I don’t want to go to the store and get an entirely new wardrobe for fear that I would get too comfortable being THAT big. What comes after that? Buying even bigger clothes and I do not want to do that.
I have gone up one pant size in the past 10 years but I am starting to get that belly that hangs over the waistline on my jeans and my feet are starting to disappear. I don’t even know what color shoes I have on half the time. I joke about that but I am afraid that's where I am headed without a change in lifestyle.
I eat too much!
I make the boys dinner every night and you know how kids are, they eat about a third of what you give them and then who eats the rest? The fat guy wearing the fleece pants. While those pants are quite comfortable I have to get out of them. I need to make better food choices indeed. I notice the change most when I put on those pants I wear every three months, like a suit or dress pants. The waist just doesn’t seem to close anymore, I am like a half an inch to an inch short. Its disgusting and I am disgusted in my self, certainly not the father I want to be to my kids.
No one wants to be the fat father.
I always prided myself in being able to get down and dirty while playing with my kids, but I just don’t fit into those tunnels at the playground anymore, and the monkey bars, I gave them up years ago.
Off to the Gym.
I know that I am not the only man facing this problem as a I can look at a lot of people around me with the same issues. Its hard to notice a problem when everyone you know has a few more inches on the belly and an extra chin than they used to. I guess I look normal in comparison. Maybe I was in denial, so admitting there is a problem is a great first step. The second step is getting my fat ass to the gym, thats if I can squeeze myself through the front door.
