Last week in my exercise class our trainer was talking about weight loss. After his 15 minute talk (very sensible BTW) one of the gentleman in the class came up to me and said " I know a sure fire way to lose weight" I was trying really hard not to roll my eyes or say something nasty after more than one incidence of strangers coming up to me and giving me diet advice. Arghhhhh!
Boy was I glad I didn't!!!! His sure fire way to lose weight: Be a prisoner of war! He was captured in WW1 and went from 195 to 130 in just a few months. My brother was wounded in Vietnam and at 6"1" weighed less than 100# when he finally died. It really gave me something to think about over the Memorial Day weekend.
That brave gentleman helped me to appreciate all that I have both in health, family and freedom. He also helped me to put my own struggles in perspective. Not to diminish them, but to put them in there proper place.
I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. Mine has been one of the more memorable ones.
