I said I would get weighed today. The news….I weigh 293 pounds! Oh, shit. I knew it was bad, but not that bad. 293 pounds would be bad for anyone except for extreme body builders, but I’m only 5’5″ tall. That means I literally am double my ideal weight. I gained a lot over the past year since going on psych meds. Apparently they have that effect on most people. A drug that slows your metabolism and makes you hungry at the same time? Oh yeah!
I’ve been overweight most of my life, but I’ve always been one of those whose held in well. People always under guessed my actual weight. Not anymore I’m sure. It shows. I’ll post pics soon.
So, now I’ve got to start eating better. I’ve put it out there now so I’ve got to do it. I also need to exercise. That’s harder for me these days. I feel like an old man. If I can get my ass down to the beach then I can walk longer. I love the beach.
I want to introduce myself, but wasn’t sure how so I decided to just toss out some icebreaker questions. You know, the kind they have you answer at parties or even worse, the kind that get emailed all around the world. I Googled a bunch of questions and found the ones that I felt were most pertinent, plus a few stupid ones thrown in.
Do you have a nickname?
Yes, my real name is just Brad, but my friends call me Bradley. Hence, the name of this site.
What’s your haircolor?
There’s not much of it, but it’s brown.
What’s your eye color?
Blue – my best asset
I’m gay, though I’m starting to use the term “queer” more.
Happily married to the man of my dreams.
Democrat or Republican?
Hillary or Obama?
Unitarian Universalist with Buddhist leanings. Being a UU is an important part of my life. You can find out more about UU at http://www.uua.org
Do you believe in God?
Yes and no. I don’t believe in the old man on the throne passing judgment. When I refer to God I’m referring to more of a force that permeates the universe.
Just my ear
Dog or cat person?
Cats. They are fun to cuddle, but are independent enough to not get upset when you shoo them. Dogs are fun to play with but are too codependent. I love other peoples dogs.
What is your greatest regret in life?
I don’t have many. Even the worst decisions and situations I view as experiences and lessons in life. The only regret I have is not spending enough time with my daughter up to now.
Are you pro-life?
Of course I am. I’m certainly not pro-death. I do happen to be pro-choice.
Do you support the death penalty?
An eye for an eye leaves everyone blind.
Have you ever been told you look like someone famous?
When I was in better shape and my head shaved I was told I looked like Stone Cold Steve Austin. Fortunately he’s a good looking professional wrestler.
If you were an animal, what would you be and why?
An otter. Play all day and eat food off my tummy sounds pretty damn good to me.
How many siblings do you have?
I’m the youngest of seven.
What’s your favorite sport?
Didn’t I say I was gay? I do think baseball players look really hot in their uniforms, though.
What would you do if you won a million dollars?
I’d buy my ex wife a nice house for her and my daughter. After that I’d travel, travel, travel.
What’s the one thing you can’t say no to?
Sex. Well, actually I can say no, but my hubby knows how to push my buttons to the point I can’t resist.
Favorite TV Show?
I watch virtually no television, so I’ll list the only two I watch: LOST and Samantha Who?
