Life

And then I realized that I needed to lose weight

I realized that I needed to lose weight, when my daughter started to ride a bike without side wheels. And went behind her. I did not keep pace. And I can not run. It’s all because of weight. And I decided that I should buy a bycicle. It was my dream long ago.  But it was just  dream, as I had no motivation. Now I have it: to keep up with my daughter.

Yesterday I bought a bicycle. To keep pace. Have you ever seen  155 kg on a bike? No? Me neither. Together with the bicycle I do not fit in the mirror. Either the bycicle or me.

And here it is, the first evening on a bike. I’ve been riding for 40 minutes. 40 minutes around the house. With stops. At first I could not move at all.

But 25 years ago I used to ride a bike.  For 5 hours. Maybe, I weighted less, or had more force…
Today I woke up. Sore feet. And sore ass.

But I went to work on the bike. It’s nearly one kilometer. I could walk. But why did I buy the bycicle then? I got to work. Power of will. I have it. After all, I quit smoking, drinking. So, I can ride a bike!

At work everybody was shocked. I was probably the last peron, from whom they expected to buy a bicycle. And it’s not only me who’s got motivation.

The end of the work. Evening. “In the evening – rest on the couch” – so I promised myself.
But  my daughter was waiting for me with her bycicle nera our house. I couldn’t disappoint my child…

I could bear 40 minutes. My daughter went to play with her friends. And I? I … Suddenly, something clicked inside me. Something in the body …
I rode another half an hour. Then another 10 minutes. Strange … I got a familiar feeling … It’s like a desire to go to smoke … Or to eat …

Perhaps not everything is lost? Maybe the bike – that’s what I missed? Maybe this is the incentive that piece of freedom, which I missed … Maybe if you take yourself in hand, stop to eat, rearrange working hours … Maybe then I will lose weight, and I will be easy and comfortable with my a piece of freedom …
I promise yourself tomorrow, too, riding the bike. At morning. Since a lot of cases in the afternoon by car. And if there is no rain in the evening to ride again. At first my daughter. Then one … Because you have to. Because I captured the sofa! And I want to get out of it free! Because I’m on the couch as if shackled. A bike … On the bike I can twist, turn in any direction. Where do I want to. And when I want to. And I hope that in the struggle to win a bicycle with a sofa. And with him, and I will win.
Do not pay attention. Just a thought that came to mind a man who felt the winds of change.
