Ya want an example?

Howdy from the land of shining stars and foggy mornings!

Just a quick post about an example of what I pick up by reading other folk's blogs.

I have mentioned Tony AKA

This cat lost 200 yes 200 pounds in 52 weeks, he writes a really good blog and has a lot of followers.Yesterday his post was an answer to a question in an email he got. It asked how he looked at fat people now that he lost 200 pounds.It asked if he thought they were lazy.

Well I love his answer, go read it.

Bottom line is, there is only one reason I am fat---1--one----------I eat more calories than I burn---period.

It just ain't right

Howdy from the land of Tricker Treaters and orange pumpkins!

Yep Halloween is almost here and I am seeing little kids with costumes everywhere. Janet has some pumpkins around the house and it looks just like a Norman Rockwell picture.

I am in the complaint department here at work. I get the task of answering employee complaints and trying to solve issues before the smoke gets too thick to see the real problem.Yesterday I was cornered up by two employees that were up on their soap boxes about what they thought the company ought to be doing to encourage more people to work out and get fit.

Evidently, what the company is doing right now JUST AIN"T RIGHT.

Well, they kept on belly aching until I finally asked them what they thought the company should do to foster this ENCOURAGEMENT.They both jumped up and said, we should be able to go to the gym after work and the company pay for it. Also they wanted healthier snacks in the vending machines----wrong answers to the wrong guy.

I told them ---BAM---I got the answers----quit buying a Snickers out of the machine and bring an Apple from home.And meet me in front of the building at 11:45 and we'll go walk at lunch---weighted vest optional.

Needless to say that was NOT the answers they wanted----they said "that just ain't right".

Some folks are hard to please.

Try something new?me?

Howdy from the land of sweet fall breezes and rag weed sneezes!

I have said before I am quite a creature of habit and I am.I can eat tuna and cheese everyday at lunch for weeks---no problem. I will order the same dish at a particular restaurant every time I go there. I drive the same route and get gas at the same place even if another is shorter and cheaper because---that's where I always go.

Damn I hate to change and try something out of my box! It is after all MY BOX.

Well, I have blown that concept today and the more I think about it the more nervous I am getting.

Our local school district asks for tutor and mentor volunteers to work with kids that also volunteer to receive some help. I know what your thinking---I did not volunteer to be a spelling coach nor a computer teacher.I did ,however,volunteer to be a mentor.The school will give me a training class and then I will be assigned one student to meet with twice a month.I hope I don't do something terribly wrong.

What does this have to do with fat loss?? I don't know, but I figure maybe fat loss has something to do with me taking this step??

Read to loose

Howdy from the land excited deer hunters and nervous turkeys!

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, right past Halloween. It will be here before you know it. I have already started thinking about what I am Thankful for---you should start thinking about it too.

I have not been posting as much as usual, as I have kinda been relaxing. I have been reading all my regular blogs and websites.I have noticed without fail that everyone that has lost a goodly amount of fat has been up and down, over the hill, and around the corner. It was not a cheap ride for them or me. It did take time and effort(worth it yes)but it was not without some slow downs and some set backs.

The one common theme in all my reading has been the most successful fat lose winners have all THOUGHT about what they were doing.They THOUGHT about where they were and where they wanted to be.They THOUGHT about the plan they would use to get to their trips end.

I got all of that info by reading---some of the reading I did (do) is not real fun. I don't like to read a couple of blogs I frequent but I do so I know I don't want to sound like that or think like that.

There is a wealth out there for everyone. I do miss Muata being on vacation and trust he will be motivating us soon.

For now, I'll keep reading. For now , I keep climbing the hill.I continue to learn and long.

Driving makes me hungry

Howdy from the land of falling leaves and snoring dogs!

We had us a little road trip this weekend. Me ,Janet and Hoppy hauled Mac's sailfish and sheep mount to his new house in OKC.There is nothing like an 8 hour drive to get me hungry.

Yep, when I drive I get hungry----really when I get bored I get hungry and when I drive all day I get bored.I did not PLAN (one of the 4 Ps)very well so I ate things that were better left alone.I am getting far enough up in age that I have to stop for a restroom break about every hour and half. This leads to going in a C store and that leads to making a choice on whether or not to get a LITTLE SOMETHING to eat and drink.Sometimes, I try to scare off boredom by singing with my Ipod on----but Janet and Hoppy said NO.

Anyhow, we got back and started the week out right.

One damn thing for sure, I might not always make the best choice while on a rode trip but I make better choices than I used to.
