I Am Inches From Being In As Good A Shape As A 72 Year Old Man

The ad on the left has been showing up lately on my Durango Texas blog. I don't know why this ad shows up. I don't remember blogging about being an old guy in great shape.

If it is true that this is an actual photo of a 72 year old doctor who has used science, nutrition and exercise to achieve the results we are looking at in the picture, well, sign me up for that program.

I have a couple decades to go before I am 72 and, hopefully, in as good a shape as this particular doctor.

I am currently having some success at reducing the beer gut-like growth that I mysteriously grew without having had the pleasure of consuming excessive amounts of beer.

My around the middle waist measurement has receded about an inch since I started receding. I can now suck the measuring tape in to just under 36 inches.

I Wish I Was As Thin As I Was When I Thought I Was Fat

I saw this amusing vintage poster this morning on Mary Kellogg Bishop's Facebook page. I can identify with the sentiment expressed by the lady in the Lounger Chair, due to the fact that I would not mind being as thin as I was, back at a weight, that at that point in time, I thought was fat.

As in, let's say, around 195 pounds.

At 195 pounds I would feel really skinny at this particular point in time.

I am almost 100% certain that is not Mary Kellogg Bishop lounging in the Lounger Chair in the poster.
