We made a pact.
Dad decided that he was going to take on a weight loss challenge. I laid some ground rules that I have learned through my journey.
He is already leading a healthier, happier, and more adventurous life. I am proud to say that he has lost 23 pds and has about 20 more to go. I talked to him while he was watching the NCAA basketball tournament a couple weeks ago and an Applebee's commercial came on. There was a time that commercials between the ball game meant a trip to the fridge but Billy Bert Baker doesn't do that anymore. He said,"I'm not even tempted to go to the fridge or the snack cabinet right now." All the small things make up the BIG picture. When you fall "out of the wheel barrel" ... just get right back in it!
