Day One (of the rest of my life . . . .)

Monday, May 13, 2013

Sometimes you just have to take a deep breath and face the fact that Charlie Brown was wrong. (He said, and I quote, "No problem is so big that it cannot be run away from.")

Reality does have a habit of smacking you in the face. And you either have to face your reality, or take denial to the next level.

That's how I've lived a lot of my life. Denial isn't just a river in Africa. And frankly, I'm weary of the game.

So today, reality is the order of the day. Portion controlled meals, daily exercise, and blunt assessments.

I can celebrate that I lost a lot of weight since Mr. Reagan was in the white house, and I've kept it off. (75 lbs isn't anything to laugh at.) But that's not the goal; its only a waypoint, and I've been here a little too long.

I'm going to try and keep this blog up as often as I have something to say. I doubt that there will be a lot of readers (I simply don't have that big an ego), but maybe there's someone out there who is interested and might be motivated by something I have to say. No guarantees, but life doesn't have a lot of them.

Now, you'll have to excuse me. There's a walk outside and a D'anjou pear calling my name (and yes, in that order).

    Welcome to the best place to face your demons! It sounds as though you are ready to begin and a walk followed by a nice pear is a good beginning!

    welcome to the rest of your life!!!! Enjoy that walk and D'anjou pear! Beats canoeing down that river that is somewhere in Africa (or in our heads)!
