Last week, I had to get some blood work. Nothing wrong, just my medical checkup coming up soon. So while sitting in the waiting room, wondering if I'll survive the needle, I was checking out a man. Now don't get the wrong idea...
In the past quarter of a century, I have been sporting a nice oversize belly. This is where most of my fat decided to live. If you have this roundness you know that there is one problem with pants. The waist band can't hold the belly in and you end up with pants that have a fold waist band. In my case it was so bad that the waist band fold over my belt.
So the easy solution is to wear a shirt over your pants. YOU NEVER TUCK-IN your shirt EVER. The other solution was to lose the belly fat but that is a story for another time.
Back to my man
observation in the waiting room. He was wearing pants (thanks God)
but I noticed his shirt was tuck-in. “HEY Richard” I told myself
without anyone else hearing it, “I lost the belly, I can tuck-in my
shirt too!” I kid you not, mentally I was still thinking of myself
as needing hide my fat, it didn't cross my mind that I didn't need
to anymore to worry about my waist band being fold. I don't need
suspender, I don't even need a belt and as a bonus, I'm all tuck-in!
Writing this, to my own surprise, I'm really emotional. Both of my daughter had never knew me at this size. Even when I took this journey, I didn't believe I would made it. But I did, and it was not a struggle, I just eat less, exercise and let the pounds drop. It's insane to why I wait this long to get back in a healthier body!
