I have to wonder.

Body for Life certainly does a number on you. Inside, I feel all kinds of great. High energy and truckloads of extra brain power and all of that. Eating 5-6 meals a day? I can totally get behind that as well. Chicken and broccoli and copius amounts of cottage cheese and funny-tasting egg white omelets and a bunch of meal replacement shakes? Yeah, okay. It's the fact that I still can't put my arms all the way down after lifting weights on Monday that I have a hard time wrapping my brain around. Or that what would be my chest (if'n I had one) sorta whimpers every time I move. Just four days into an expected 84, I can't help but pause a second and think, well, wasn't being a bit of a slobby slob who eats burgers or pizza any day of the week and being overall really pretty comfortable (i.e. no pain) a pretty good life, too?

All's I know is there were some "Before" photos taken on somebody else's camera. Shots I'm not all that proud of. Nevertheless, if that certain somebody has a freak accident and dies in the next number of weeks, I'm going to have to break into his house and steal that thing. I don't want anyone to have to wonder why he's got photos of the two of us, smiling, out-of-shape and shirtless, standing against his wall.

I've GOT to see those photos!!!

Also, it's nice to be able to eat whatever you feel like, whenever you feel like ... but more power to you.

There's always your free day! I did that program and yes, it kicks you good. Good luck!

Give up! Eat pizza and burgers. Six packs are way over-rated. I mean err, yo go boy.
