Yesterday my wife hit the wall. She got fed up with her weight and said enough is enough it all changes right now. It was amazing. She was like Patton during the Battle of the Bulge. She was like the Spartans at the Battle of Whatever the Hell it was Called and I Couldn’t Pronounce it Even if I Could Remember the Name. We are going to eat healthier, we are going to plan meals, we are going to stop with the junk, and we are going back to Weight Watchers. I felt like the Hanson Brothers during Reg Dunlop’s pre-game speech to the Charlestown Chiefs. I felt like the Scottish soldiers in Braveheart when William Wallace gave the big pre-battle speech. I was on board. 100%. Let’s do this thing!
Today we went to a Weight Watchers meeting and had our first weigh in. I’m still on board 100% and I’m still gung ho… but I’m also depressed and ashamed of myself. That number is soooo much higher than I expected. So very much higher. So unimaginably higher.
We can be successful in this because we are going to work together. She’s amazing and she inspires me. I have further to go than I thought, but I can still get there if she is on my team.
Let’s do this! For old time hockey! For Eddie Shore! For FREEEEEEEDOMMMMM!!!!!!!
