A bit of tough from Mom

Man my neck is sore. Seems that I whip my head around too fast or something when I'm doing the martial arts thing as these sore neck muscles have been a theme as of late. Hopefully my body will just get used to it, but until then it's Advil and Tylenol for me.

At some point either last week or the one prior, I was on the long drive home from work and was on the phone with my mom. When it was my turn to give her some updates, I whined a bit about being stuck at 255 for so long. She asked me what I was doing when I was having success, and I told her that I was counting my calories, but that I felt like that was just a pain in the ass. "Well, maybe one day you'll wake up and decide that counting calories isn't as big a pain as being stuck at 255 is. Then things will change."

I've been counting all last week and so far this week. This morning I'm in the 240s again.

Thanks ma.

Yea, I hate counting calories too and I believe when I get to the maintenance stage I won't have to but on the lossing road it's a must for me too. Way to go on getting into the 240's!

Moms...nobody can deliver the goods as succinctly. Congrats on the 240's, dude. That is awesome. Hope to join you there sometime soon.

Your mom is a wise woman. I like her. If you haven't told her lately, tell her you love her!

Sometimes you've just got to be blunt! My mum treads on eggshells when it comes to discussing my weight, even though I really wouldn't mind her coming out with something like your mum said!

This is a great blog! Have added you to my blog list. :o)
