And now, post #3

Today, let’s talk about how I am going to die.

We have a “Health and Wellness” fair going on here at work. The atrium in our building has been taken over by other companies, each in a booth, and they are giving out gifts in exchange for our listening to them.

One of the activities is a “wellness checkup”. They draw a little blood, take a few measurements, and determine how healthy you are.

I’m a dead man walking.

My blood pressure is a little high, my bone density is a little low, cholesterol is right at the point where I need to manage it, and apparently, I’m a fat fuck.

Did I mention that I smoke?

So… if I never update again, it’s because I died.

    You were not that fat last I saw you (and rather nice of you not to post those pix of me…but I digress), I doubt you are that different now, unless you had one too many nights of beer butt chicken?

    According to my height and age, I should weigh 204lb or less (92.53kg). Since I actually weigh 220lb (99.79kg), that throws me into the “Mr Fatty Pants” catagory.

    Granted, I’m 6’4″ (193cm) tall, I can mask the extra pounds pretty well.

    Is it obvious when I look in the mirror that I’ve got a few extra pounds on me? Sure. Am I a big fat pig? Well, not exactly. 🙂

    Wow! Only 16lbs. If you take into account your Family history you are still puny. As for your bone density, put down the beer once in a while and drink a glass of milk.

    Love the look of the new site!
