It's Eatin' Time

I heard some staggering statistics today about the rising costs of health care. Approximately 9 cents of every dollar spent on health care goes toward treating obesity-caused illnesses, culminating in a whopping 93 billion dollars every year! I read such findings and wonder how is it that some people can pack on weight effortlessly while other people, like me who go to extraordinary effort, manage only to evaporate weight by way of processing a few brainwaves and ka-ZAM it disappears into 'thin' air. Well, patience is a virtue I suppose. The journey of a thousand juicy meatball sandwiches starts with just one bite, and I intend to finish that journey.

It's called metaabolism and genetics my friend. (You jump off mountains remember.) It will slow down and when you're 45 you might have an easier time of putting on the pounds.

When I was an oh-so-skinny teenager my mom would feed me a heaping tablespoon of peanut butter and fudge chocolate. Didn't work. I would actually lose weight AFTER eating a Thanksgiving dinner because it took so my energy to metabolize it.
I coined a phrase...
Good Times Hide Bad Habits
Enjoy your journey.
