So here we are again, at the end of the year and contemplating what resolutions I’m going to make for 2016. At the top of the list, you guess it; LOSE WEIGHT…in particular; my stomach. Every year I make this resolution and somewhere along the line I’m presented with a piece a chicken, a reeses peanut butter cup or a bottle of pineapple soda. All very delicious and may or may not contribute to this extra fat around my waist.

Nonetheless, losing it is on my list. Unlike all the other resolutions around business, money and personal ambitions which needs no motivation, I always struggle with how to exercise more, drink more water, reduce my portions; etc. etc. etc. This year God hit me below the belt; He deployed my 7-year-old son! Cruel!!!!!!

Not only did he deploy him, but in His fashion, He only gave my son one line to use and a visualization to top it off. The line: “Daddy, this is how FAT you are.” The visual; well you see!

So this year I’m motivated. I’m not gonna lie; I’m probably still gonna eat chicken, peanut butter cups and drink soda; however, I won’t be over indulging and I will be exercising MUCH, MUCH, MUCH more.

Thanks KJ for being my inspiration…and you can move back in now 🙂
