Well, now that it has been oppressively hot for a couple weeks, my excess winter weight of about 5 pounds has melted away. Now all that’s left to lose is my normal winter weight gain of another 5 pounds. Assuming I can lose that, I will then be at a weight where I consider myself 10 pounds overweight. Is that so bad? Who among us is not 10 pounds overweight?
Liars! All of you! But wait, maybe that 10 extra pounds is actually muscle and not fat.
Okay, okay. 5 down and 5 to go before I am still 10 pounds overweight. A guy’s got to have goals.
Love the song …
Hate the actual weight …
But there it is, around my midsection after every winter. I even set a new record high for winter weight this year. Yay? I rely on a warm Spring to melt those pounds away, but we didn’t have one this year. It was cold and wet. And so I waited as I jiggled through April and May.
But then, last weekend happened.

I saw the news that Fats Domino just passed away at age 89. Although he was a fine musician, I’m not a huge fan and don’t have a lot emotionally invested in his passing, but I am encouraged. There’s a guy nicknamed “Fats” that made it to 89 years old. There’s hope for a long life for me! Fat guys rule!
Most people don’t consider me fat. If I stand up straight, my shirt hangs down flat with no signs of a growing gut stretching the fabric of my shirt to its limits. I present a slim, but false facade.
