The Affair Part 1

This will be an ongoing series. You will understand why as soon as you read it. Each part will take place on it's own schedule. The closer the parts are together the better the story will be. If the dates are further apart....well....they may still be good....

Part 1

I have had numerous affairs in the past. Some of these affairs are very long while others only lasted for a short time. It is hard to say, but I am flirting with having more affairs. There are many opportunities for me to change my life for the better. I have had my eye on this one little number for many years. I was very close to this affair many years ago right before my oldest daughter was born. We flirted, but then an injury ended any future involvement between us. It has crossed my mind many times over the years. What would it be like if we hooked up? Would we have fun? How would people react to our relationship? Would they be happy? Would I be happy?

At this point I am sure that anyone reading this is thinking "why in the hell would he be putting this on a public forum?" My response is simple. These affairs are not with another person. These affairs are with numbers on a scale. My weight struggle has been evident for many years. I was 180 pounds when I got married. I grew to 220 pounds before dropping back to 190 before Megan was born. Then I broke my foot and shot back to 220. I generally hung around here for many years, but then things changed again. I started driving nearly 2 hours each way to work and sitting in an office chair for 10 hours a day. I shot up to 250.....and eventually back and forth between 260 and 240. My high was 273. Only 27 pounds away from 300 pounds. I gained nearly 100 pounds over the course of 12 years.

So, I have broken up with and stopped seeing 270. This affair was very short. A matter of a few weeks. I then started an affair with 260. We were only together for about 5 or 6 weeks, then I grew sick of being tired, so I broke things off. 250 and I have had numerous affairs over the years. We would spend a few weeks together between the other affairs. We have spent probably the most time together out of all of my affairs. The last break up was just this past Friday. I told 250 that I never wanted to see it again. I need to move on. As comfortable as I am with 250, I need to be better and not allow myself to fall back into arms that have treated me so badly. Our time has come to an end. I am with 240 now. Hopefully our relationship will be short lived because I see that 230 is giving me the eye again. For now, I am content to be in a relationship with 240. We will work together to be faster on the bike and just healthier in general. Once I have gotten everything that I need from 240 I will move on.

There are a lot more numbers I would like to see before this is all said and done. Every time I meet a new number I will add another part to this story of affairs. I would like to see 5 more parts, one for every 10 numbers ranging from 240 down to 190. It might be a long term affair, but it will all be worth it in the end.
