On the Road Again

On the Road Again

Well I went on a week’s holiday and I did not overindulge or so I thought. Well maybe just the odd cream scone here and there, and maybe that nice cake that looked so good in the cabinet of that coffee shop, and maybe … Enough I am trying to encourage you good people, not discourage you.

Anyway it cost me. I bounced back up from 188lbs to 192lbs, and now am back down to 191lbs. I keep reminding myself I started at 200lbs and do not want to return there, but still my ultimate aim is 172lbs, or there about.

So to cut a long story short this week’s song is Willie Nelson’s song

On the road again -

Just can't wait to get on the road again.

The life I love is making music with my friends

And I can't wait to get on the road again.

On the road again

Goin' places that I've never been.

Seein' things that I may never see again

And I can't wait to get on the road again.

On the road again -

Like a band of gypsies we go down the highway

We're the best of friends.

Insisting that the world keep turning our way

And our way

is on the road again.

Just can't wait to get on the road again.

The life I love is makin' music with my friends

And I can't wait to get on the road again.

On the road again

That well known saying always bounces around my mind, “once on your lips, always on your hips,” however I only started at 200lbs and since I am male I do not have to suffer the hips issue … I have none.

The concept of dieting reportedly became popular during President William H. Taft’s office (4th March 1909 – 4th March 1913). At 340lb he was so overweight he got stuck in the White House Bathtub and had it replaced with one big enough for four men.

The trouble of William Howard Taft was he loved food and the more food he could get, the more he loved it. Not only were his doctor and Mrs. Taft constantly on the alert to enforce a diet that would get rid of some of his surplus poundage. Mrs. Taft, as a strong-minded woman, took dieting seriously for the President and this led to a lot of talk that in a less famous household might have been called nagging, but this sparked off a lot of interest in what has now become a multi-billion pound industry.

Have a good week each of you, and do not concentrate on diet fads, just eat healthily and exercise moderately for you as an individual. For me as someone with a chronic lung disorder that just means walks that get me slightly out of breath; for you it may mean a marathon each week (the run not the chocolate bar).
