I’m Not Half the Man I Used to Be…

…but if everything goes like it’s been going, tomorrow or the next day, I will be three-quarters of the man I was in January of this year.

Yep, that’s right. By this time tomorrow or Thursday, all things being equal, I will have dropped over one-quarter of my January weight…69 pounds, down to 205 from 274! How cool is that?!?!?

On a couple of related notes…

Last Sunday, after our un-air-conditioned worship services, the lovely and gracious “Mrs. Just Charlie” and I went for our evening walk/run (Heritage Park in Canton, Georgia, 3-4 miles, whatever). I decided I would walk/run sans shirt, so as to get a little sun on this pale previously-fat body. Anyway, by the time we go to the park, the sun is toward the west. As we made the turn heading east, and our shadows were in front of us, the lovely and gracious “Mrs. Just Charlie” asked…

Whose arms are those?!?!

See, in the shadow, you could actually see some muscular definition in my arms! Yes, very cool!

And one other piece of related information. When we signed up at the YMCA back in December, my instructor asked what my fitness goals were. I jokingly replied…

I’m 45 and I want to be 21!

Well, for what it’s worth, I’m now wearing pants in exactly the same size I wore…at age 21!
