The way we were
Young. You’ve heard it, “You couldn’t pay me to be young in a world like today.” You could pay me. I’d gladly take your money. To go back and right all the wrongs. To live as wise when I was a fool. You could definitely pay me to go back. If my kids did what I used to do — I’d have a cow. Then, I’d lock ‘em up like Rapunzel. And it’d take a whole lot more than a head full of hair to get ‘em out, believe me.
I was like all young people. I thought I was immortal. And, I thought myself to be immune to anything that could hurt me. I was that guy that could do a back flip without thinking of it much. My buddies and I were the untrained gymnasts who’d impress the girls at school by doing back flips off the cab of pickup trucks. Or, run up a wall and flip backwards. Name the insanity that most boys in their teens did, and that’s the way we were.
What happened to us? Our host, or our bodies happened to us. They started aging. We felt it. And like most, we babied it to avoid more pain. And the results? That extra weight you’ve been lugging around. Are you ready to lose it?
Can you see yourself weighing what you did in your twenties? Or what about in your teens? It is possible. If you apply the principles taught here. You will be on your way to a healthier you. And a liter you.
