On February 4th, Sherry and I went on the Bluebonnet Wine Trail and sampled a variety of wines from local Texas wineries. We had a great time. It was also our fifth time to do this, and I remembered that I had taken a photo at one of them when I was at my heaviest. I asked her to re-take the photo from the same spot so I could compare the two. I couldn’t believe the difference.
First of all, I still like to wear caps and jeans. Second, I still like to sit on the patio at the winery and check my email, check into Swarm, and catch up on any missed texts from my kids. Oh, and then there’s the third: look how much smaller I am now! Not just the size of my stomach, but even my arms and legs and heck, even my head! The hat I’m wearing on the right didn’t fit me when I was on the left. I had to give it to Sherry to wear because my head was too big. Now? Fits perfectly.
Change is possible. It takes time, effort, and discipline. All you have to do is eat right. If you don’t want to do the exercise, that’s okay too. You don’t have to. I got from being the guy on the left to being the guy on the right just by eating good, delicious, and filling foods and not working out. Look into Paleo and Whole30.
