You know, I thought I was lazy until I hear this exchange yesterday between my boss and my co-worker.
CW: They have just opened our favorite restaurant in the DFW airport. We can eat lunch there on our trip tomorrow.
BOSS: I'm not walking anywhere.
He is a heart attack waiting to happen. Drinks regular Coke, eats candy and chips all day and then only dinner as a meal. Probably somewhere in the neighborhood of 350 pounds. Nothing anyone could ever say will change his habits either. I feel a bit better about myself :)

Speaking of feeling better, I'm inspired. I know I'm late to the Sean party, but if you haven't read his blog yet DO IT. You will laugh, you will cry and then you will feel like this whole weight loss thing "ain't rocket surgery" as I like to say. I'm going back to basics. Calorie counting, moving, and figuring out exactly what I need to do in my head to make me not gain it all back this time. That's only 3 things. I can do that and I can afford it :)

Now, I'm off to catch up on some blogs, get some work done (which hasn't happened since I've been reading Seans blog from day one) and figure out a daily calorie count on FitDay or Sparkpeople. Hope y'all are having a great week!


  1. It's so great that we have blogs these days, both to inspire us and get us in gear.

    I hope your bosswakes up before it's too late!

  2. If you're reading Sean's blog from day one, work's gonna be on the back burner for quite some time.

    His really is a heart-warming story.

  3. You're amazing Tina. Thank you. Welcome to the party my friend!
    I look forward to following your success and reading deeper into your blog this weekend.

    My best always,

  4. I shared some about you in my latest post. Including your url. I certainly hope you don't mind!

    My best always

  5. I had a boss like that when I was temping - coke, donuts and cigarettes for breakfast. I never got caught slacking because I could hear the guy coming from down the hall his breathing was so labored. One foot in the grave, the other on a banana peel - I hope he's changed his ways.

  6. That's an awesome link. Thanks!

    You can do it :)

  7. I found Sean early on in my journey, back in June. Out of all the blogs I read now, he is still my main weight loss mentor. He just makes the thinking processes so simple, so basic, and that's what I needed. It's not always easy, but it IS simple. I'm glad you found him too. :)
