If it is broke fix it!

Can you believe we are half way through the month?!
It has been a month of struggles for me, cookouts, birthdays, and all of life's events. It is so hard to stay on track when ice cream season is in full effect.
With summer time comes new shows on t.v. and one that hit me in the face was Extreme Makeover. I just love this show. Though I'm not over 400 lbs. I have many traits of the people I see on the show. Every day struggles are all around us in this big old USA. We as a nation keep getting bigger and bigger and we allow it. We are just letting each other kill ourselves. Killing ourselves with our forks. Is it bad to keep each other accountable? Some say yes it is my business and I don't care how much I weigh. But I don't think that way. I think man I love this person enough to say get on track, I want you here as long as you can be. I think if it is said in a loving way we all would be in such a better place.
I praise my sister and wife for always keeping me on track and vise versa. Everyone needs that support system to keep them accountable for their well being. Its not out of vanity it is out of love.
So as I was saying this show sparked a new flame in me, one I haven't felt in a while. I was at my ends rope again for the thousandth time and wanted to give up and claim I was forever fat! Then I watched these transformations and said dam if someone 400+ lbs. can do it what the hell am I complaining about 50 lbs.? So I friended Chris on F.B. and heard about his book, I ordered it and read the whole thing with in 2 days. I made a plan for myself and with a few slip ups I've been doing good. I will have to keep tweaking it and making it my own but he gave me the foundation to do it. I will succeed this year in losing these lbs.! 
With a new fire lit here I go :)
