So why on earth do I want to put myself through all this effort to lose weight? I mean status quo is easy, right? It’s easier just to stay where I am… it’s sort of a comfort zone. I know all the standard answers – and they DO mean alot to me – I’ll be healthier, I’ll live longer, It’ll be good for my business and so forth. All very great reasons to lose this excess weight.
But what I really, really want is to get out and dance. I love dancing.
I was never great at team sports. I have something called alternating vision, so catching a ball is pretty much not in the cards. As a result, I could never show off my prowess on the sports pitch to impress the girls. But girls/women LOVE to dance. That’s where it’s my turn to be the star. For whatever reason I’m good at it. I have rythm. I enjoy it and it’s a ton of fun. And it’s a GREAT way to pick up women! I have pissed off more than one guy when his girlfriend insisted on dancing with me. Take that you football palying jocks! Your knees are shot now, but I still know how to dance.
Or at least I did… alas, I have handicapped myself. I cannot dance right now. I get too tired, I can’t move like I want… it’s a disaster.
So eye on the prize. I want to lose this weight so I can dance. This is one of “My Whys”.
So soon, I expect, I’ll see you on the dance floor!
