23 Down, A Zillion More to Go...
Another day. I stand and watch my Wii avatar puff up like some strange Atlantic blow fish as my daily weight and BMI are calculated. My only consolation? I no longer have to dodge the flying buttons and the console no longer says, "One at a time, please." 

Like millions of Americans, years of neglect, poor diet, and lack of exercise has put me in an area where I too am in for the fight of my life. The battle of the bulge was not fought in Europe. For many of us, it is being fought daily here in our own households
.

"Baby, come back", is the call I hear from the fast food joints I used to frequent. Crap shoved to me through a window, has now been replaced by the taste-bud tantalizing medley of celery sticks, broccoli heads and baby carrots - Yum! Yum! And, let's not forget the cardboard and ketchup tasting low cal pizzas.

No pain - no gain seems to be worth it as I watch the pounds slowly melt away. Who knows, maybe I will become one of those biggest losers too.

Michael.....when you hit 40 the body starts to change.  When I can, I watch the "Dr. Oz show".  He provides some great ways to lose weight, what to eat, etc.

My kids got the Wii for Christmas this year. I think ol' dad needs to use it to shed some pounds.
