What an appropriate topic for this week’s Photo Challenge. I don’t think much about being weightless, but I do think a lot about weight. I am not alone in that. The most popular New Year’s Resolution in the world is weight loss. Let it be known that I’m resolving right this second to lose weight. (Whew, glad that’s over!)
In our small town of Woodlake, California, the Kiwanis Club hosts a “Run for Hunger” event every April. Those of us who have plenty of food, lots of energy, and maybe a bit more weight than we want or need pay to run three miles around Bravo Lake to raise money to buy food to stock the Woodlake Food Pantry for those who don’t have enough food to eat.
Most of the contestants are fit. Kiwanis feeds them a pancake breakfast after they finish. No one ever turns it down! This quest for weight watching and keeping in shape begins early here in Woodlake, and is quite well dressed, wouldn’t you agree?
The idea of watching our weight is episodic worldwide. We engage in
long never-ending periods of various exercises,
trying to remove the effects of depositing morsels of tastiness which take so little time to consume.
The trainer we had on our vacation in Hawaii suggested that the only way to lose weight is to pay attention to what we put into our mouths.
I was hoping there was another way, weren’t you?
