My Fat Experiment

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Fitts Agency

I'm into day number seventy-five of my "fat experiment."  I took a vacation at the end of March, and when I returned, I stopped working out. Period.  After many years of consistent morning workouts, with a few missed days here and there, I simply decided to stop working out and watch the changes to my body.

The result - pathetic.  At least an inch to the waist, an expanding jelly belly, and I'm not sure how much I weigh because the only scale I know of is at the gym, and of course, I'm not at the gym.

Why this madness?  Because I wanted to attract heart disease, diabetes, gout, or a myriad of other ailments? I think not. Here's the deal.  I kind of lost my "mojo," and I wanted to get it back.  I needed a challenge, physically, but I wanted to show how fast the body can change, you know like those corny TV commercials with the before and after pictures.

So, in a few days, I'll get the wife to snap a picture of the "before" bod, and give myself 12 weeks to change.  Hopefully I'll get my mojo back, and inspire a few folks to find theirs as well.

For now, would you pass the doughnuts?

For real inspiration, go to your doctor's office and have a blood cholestrol test.  That will tell you how close you are to a clogged artery and heart attack.

When some people stop working out for awhile it is difficult to start back. Home that doesn't happen to you
