My own "before & after" photo

The photo on the left was taken in 2008 (before Bucket List Weight Loss).
The photo on the right was taken in July 2013 (after Bucket List Weight Loss).

After 48 years of dieting and obsessing, I lost the weight and became the size of my dreams.

More importantly, I regained the health and youth that had aged me prematurely when I was 40 pounds heavier.  Now, at age 60, I'm enjoying a life that's more active than ever, unhindered by the extra poundage I once carried on my frame.

I wrote the e-book, Bucket List Weight Loss, to let others know how they can do the same thing, and to encourage you to just do it.  It's not a diet, and you won't have to buy anything other than the book ($2.99).  No drugs, no injections, no pre-packaged foods.  There's just a lot of common sense that can be individualized to anyone's situation.  There are no longer any excuses for you to be even a little overweight.

If you don't own a Kindle, Nook, or other reading tablet, simply download the book file to your PC and read it right there at your desk.  For instructions, go here:

Act like a grown-up!

The adult inside you says, "I shouldn't eat that."
The child in you says, "But I want it so much."
The adult says, "No, I can't have it because it's not good for me."
The child says, "But I don't care!"
The adult:  "Why don't you care?  Be an adult!"
The petulant child screams, "I AM an adult, and that's why I can have anything I want!"

How ironic!  When we're young, we want to be adults so we can make our own decisions.  Yet the decisions we want to (and often do) make are often those of a petulant child.

We're children living in adult bodies.  The child wants to eat cookies until she feels sick.  The adult rationalizes that it's okay to do that.

GROW UP!!!!  Next time you catch yourself sounding and acting like a spoiled 8-year-old brat, remember that you're an adult and act like you have a brain.  Let the adult inside you calmly take over.  Walk away from the temptation.  Find an alternative activity.

It's the petulant child inside you that's allowed you to become overweight.  The adult in you knows better!  Tell that kid to shut his or her pie-hole (literally) and get a life...and there is no life in the bottom of a potato chip sack.

Common sense splashed in your face can feel as refreshing as a sprinkler on a hot day.  Find it here:
