On My Way to Meet Me Again

We’ve all seen the Biggest Loser transformations on NBC and although those are a direct result of 8-hour-a-day work outs and restrictive meal plans, the truth is they’re trying to lose a lot more weight than what most of us are faced with dropping. My doctor appointment on Monday revealed my weight at 180 lbs and the truth is that it’s uncomfortably heavy for my frame. This Monday, February 1st, I will do to my weight what I did with my smoking – battle it. It isn’t about being thin; it’s about being healthy, flexible and feeling my best. The size 29 waist and washboard abs…well, they’re just gravy. So, as I look back at myself in my camo just 18 months ago - yeah...how the body changes - I can say that it’s time to get it together and enjoy my forties. You have to step out and make your future happen…conquer it…head-on…because it’s not making any special trips to catch up with you.

On Blast
Lifelong issues…for some it’s their weight, for others it’s their complexion or maybe even their sense of style. We have a saying in Spanish that says, “El que no tiene dinga, tiene mandinga.” Simply put, if it isn’t one thing it’s another.
What is your dinga?

Keep passin’ the open windows…

I feel you Cocoa. So much of my body is changing. It is hard to keep up. Not more just jumping out of the bed and looking fabulous. LOL

You're not kidding Ty. I'm really just surprised how fast the change occurred. Caught me by surprise really.
