"I guess I have a lot of problems, so many that I don't have time to go into them all in detail. Suffice it to say I'm anal, obsessive, vain, quick to temper, overly introspective, lazy, judgmental, insecure, and self-righteous. Probably the most annoying thing about me is that I'm hugely opinionated. But I kind of make up for that by always being right."

Day Ten: Baby Steps

It's weird how time goes by faster the older you get. I guess in a way that's a blessing. When you're sitting in the home with a turd in your Depends, you don't want it to seem like forever until the orderlies clean you up.

After answering an email or two, writing an article for my blog, taking my boys somewhere they want to go, running an errand, walking a few miles and doing some yoga it's already dinner time. How in the hell did that happen? I had planned on doing so much more with my day. I've also discovered that if I put anything difficult off until after dinner, it never gets done. I think this is why my ex-wife would only have sex with me in the morning.

One of today's chores that took more time than I'd allotted was my visit to my nutritionist. Though she'd told me only to expect to lose one to two pounds a week on my new diet, I'd lost five since my first appointment a week before. And though it seems like it's going to take forever to get to where I want to be, the secret is finding satisfaction in each baby step you take.

The problem is, babies take forever to get anywhere.
