A Male Black Bear weighs anywhere from 180 pounds to 200 pounds.... and , well I hate to say it, But I out weigh that ol' Black Bear by 4 pounds. I know, I was shocked too!
I never ever, ever normally would admit this to you. I would just try to hide all my Voluptuous curves under a big T-shirt. You see, the t-shirt is getting tighter and tighter, and I am feeling sluggish and down right rotten.
I am a pasta, Bread and chocolate brownie loving fool! Not kidding a bit..
I have a struggle at home because I love, down home ( Paula Dean Style) cooking'
Oh, and at work is even worse. I work in a Bakery and if that isnt bad enough, we have a big tray of samples every single stinkin day and that big tray sits right in front of me, where I decorate the cakes. A.. Huh.. You guessed it.. I cant even concentrate on my job. I find myself totally distracted by those scrum*dilly*umtious goodies sitting right before my eyes..My double chin indicates that I cant keep my sugar addicted fingers outta the demo tray. Now that I have shared my character defects with you, I will get serious about this post.
I have a Son who is 28 years old. He is a wonderful person who has had some some struggles of his own. Although we would like changes to happen overnight they plain and simple just don't. I have watched my son over the last eight months battle an alcohol addiction and become a healthy eater and he also works out on a regular basis. I've seen his personality shine as It once did before his addiction. He is caring, Articulate and Brilliant and he loves his Mother so much and wants her to be around for a long time, that he signed me up for a New beginnings Life changes contest. It's kinda like the "Biggest Loser" Reality show. This class is ran by a doctor and several fitness trainers. I was skeptical.. The thought of giving up all the bad carbs and sugary treats and EXERCISE, just gave me shivers... I had to go, but I was doing it for my Son, how could I let him down? When I got there to the class, I looked around.. there were so many people just like me.. needing a healthy change.. and somehow, I don't think they were there for all the prizes you can win.. I think they were there for themselves.. After listening to the orientation speech, being weighed and measured( WE wont go there) I left not doing this for my Son, instead I found a ray of hope in that group of people. I left there wanting to make a life change for myself. I want to add one more thing.. My son, signed up for this class for the second time, to offer support to his mama, he sat by my side all evening. That is the best gift of love a mom could have. Thank you Tony, Your Mamma Loves you :)
