This is my Brother:
Yesterday was his birthday.
In true family tradition I'm wishing him a happy birthday a day late.
I've bragged about Clint in the past. Growing up he wasn't the "normal" brother. He never teased me, never picked on me, never tattled. Could have been the 7 year age difference. My Mom once told me that she never had to worry about cleaning out his pockets when doing laundry. He wasn't the kind of kid that picked up bugs & kept them to play with later.
Now he's a Dad to 2 wonderful kids. (I'm biased. His daughter is a "mini-me" and his son is my Godson.) His wife is amazing, beautiful, funny and helps him keep is act together.
Happy birthday to you! You live in a zoo! You look like a MONKEYYYYYYYYY and you smell like one toooooooooooooooo!
Let's talk diet.
Weight loss. Life journey. Choices. Journalling. Exercise. Water. No sugar. No whites: flour, pasta, potatoes. Inspirations. Uninspired. 30 minutes a day. Nothing after 8pm. Breakfast. Nothing tastes as good as thin feels. Fake it til you make it. Put the fork down between bites. Don't do anything while eating. Eat in front of a mirror. Leave a bite or 2 on your plate. Use a smaller plate. Use a smaller fork. Use chopsticks. Ice water burns more calories than room temperature water. Eat your rainbow. 1 oz of cheese is equal to your thumb. A serving of meat is the size of a deck of cards. Measure measure measure. Points. Fiber. Fat. An empty colon is a happy colon. Eat right. Baked. Broiled. Not fried. Couch to 5 k. No carbs. Cabbage soup diet. Zero point soup. Thin jeans. Fat pants. Your starting point is my goal. 10%. No fruit after noon. Don't mix veggies, carbs and protein. Have 2 out of three. No coffee. Green tea. Whole grains. Olive oil. Five small meals a day. Pineapple only for 3 days. Hard boiled eggs. No salt. Lightly steam. Fish. Fish. Fish. Lemon juice, cayenne pepper and maple syrup. Brush and floss. Be the last one at the table eating. Taste each bite. Savour each bite. Make each bite count.
