You never see fat old people
Saturday, July 06, 2013
This is what a friend said to me the other day. I was busy lamenting how old I feel and he hit me with it. Of all the things anyone has ever said to me about my size, that impacted me. Mostly because he's right. So, after a little reflection I decided it's time to do something about it. I want to be old, and I want to be fit enough to chase teenagers off my lawn and yell at the neighbors kids about the music being too loud.
I want to watch my kids fall in love and get married, I want to hold my future grandkids, then watch them grow up and marry.
Also I can't give the wife the satisfaction of kicking the bucket first!
So here I am. Looking forward to facing the challenges of each day, hoping to borrow some insight and strength from any of you who can afford to lend it. It was a long road to get where I am today, and it will be equally as long to get back to where I should be but I look forward to the challenge!
