Looking Well and Wellness for a Lifetime

Okay. I've heard a lot of private comments along the lines of "you're not fat." I appreciate the desire to make me feel better, but I wasn't feeling bad (well, not in a big way, at least).

It's actually not that I look fat or have had to ditch my wardrobe for the next size up. Instead, it's been this steady progression of losing lean muscle mass and adding fat in its place that I was aware of vaguely, but not as explicitly as after the wellness center assessments.

It's kind of like all the folks with high cholesterol who look so fit, but can be walking heart attacks. Looks can be deceiving.

For me, right now, it's all about prevention and not so much about looking better (or different) -- although more buff abs would be a fabulous bonus!

So, I hope to stay on track with my program. And, I'll let you know how it goes!
