March 5th, 2019 Way Of The Food
Yesterday was a 4-star day: I maintained the integrity of my calorie budget, I remained refined sugar-free, I met my daily water goal, and I stayed well connected with exceptional support.
An old friend and radio colleague, Jack Bush, posted this old photo of him (on the left), me, and the late newsman, Harry Benson (Gilstrap) on his Facebook page. I see photos like this and it brings back a bunch of memories. Memories of Jack and Harry and what we three did together at that radio station twenty-five years ago come flooding back. Memories of Harry, who passed away too young, come back too. Harry became one of my broadcasting mentors. Food was/is my addiction, his were other things--but we both connected in that way, I suppose. His took him too soon. Mine could have done the same and still could if I go the way of the food. Jack has had his own transformation over the years. I was so happy for Jack when he started working for the mighty KVOO in Tulsa. I'm pretty sure it was the station where he always wanted to land. Lastly, this photo recalls 500 pound me and all the limitations my size and poor health created. I pray I never go back.
Dinner last night: Oven "fried" fresh catfish filets, fresh cut and baked sweet potato fries and green beans.
I enjoyed a good visit with mom before coming home and preparing dinner. I took the night off from the gym--I'll be headed back there this evening.
