Weight A Minute
Yesterday I went in for my usual, physical checkup. My blood pressure was a terrific 115 over 78. My blood pressure readings have consistently been pretty good. It's my weight that knocked me for a loop. Back in my teens, I was lucky to weigh 140 lbs. In college, I don't think I weighed much more than that. Well, fast-forward dang near 30 years and the 140 range is history. The 160 range is history. When I stepped onto the scale yesterday, it read 186 lbs! Come again!!!! 186 lbs! I was shocked! I have never weighed that much in my life! If I removed my clothing and shoes, I might have clocked in at 182 lbs or so. I think. Oh well. I won't fret. I remember the days when I used to hope and pray I was 180 lbs. That number always seemed like such a great number to me. I'm happy to be alive and well, so complain I won't. But I still have to admit that my 186 lbs reading really surprised the heck out of me. I've now gotta turn this new weight into lean, mean musculature!!
