Unfortunately for me, I have always been a big guy. At my biggest, I was at 350 lbs and could not walk futher than about 100 yds without losing my breath. As a member of the Edinboro Fire Department, PA, I was called TINY. They thought I looked like the driver from the Movie Backdraft. For those of you who watch Rescue Me, he later played Chief Reilly on that show. I had a kidney stone in 1998 and with all of the paramedic powers granted me by the Commonwealth of PA and the Center for Emergency Medicine of Western PA, I decided to do something about that. So I got off my dupa and started working out. I got to the point I could run 5 miles and weightlifting big time. I could not run 5 miles now, but I still go hiking with the my Troop. I am going to have a battle with my weight for the rest of my life. I am keeping active and doing a lot of walking. I am getting the workout stuff back in my plans and am planning to run the 5K at the Jamboree!
FYI, I did eat alot of ice cream and yes it was good. But I did not gain any weight from that job. Believe it or not, I actually lost weight and the 007s (Sundae Nut Cones) are the best!
Oh yeah, so are the strawberry scooter crunches, the chocolate chip cookie sandwiches, the orange pushups, bomb pops, etc.
