Thinking Myself on Track

Sunday, February 03, 2013

I was thinking about how the magnificent Tom Hanks lost his weight so successfully for the movie Castaway, and thinking it was perhaps partly because he was accountable to scores of people who were depending on him for their livlihood.

That led me to think maybe I could use the Spark Current-Status feed as a tool to keep myself on track. Thinking I might achieve success because I would never want to disappoint my Friends. Yes, I think that might help me.

    I've often thought of Tom Hanks in 'Castaway' and Christian Bale in 'The Mechanic' how in the world did they lose all that weight? Initially I thought it must have been CG until I learned differently. Goodness.. what devoted actors. but this is real life! Not just for a film but a life style change and not a crash diet. That is the hard part. The crash I think is easier because I would know that it is just temporary. This is something all together different it is a relearning.

    You are so right Spark friends keeping me honest and motivate me to be true to myself.

    I'll try and keep my eye on your current -status feed emoticon

    P.S. your amazing sense of humor is wonderful and always makes me smile!

    Love that movie. If I am recalling correctly, it took 2 years to make it, with a year in between to lose the weight, or something like that.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Every action has to begin with a thought. And announcing it does make you more accountable. You CAN do this. I'm rooting for you!
