If Nothing Changes, Nothing Changes

I have a problem. Two problems actually. I discovered these two problems the other day when I went to put on my shorts.... they do not fasten anymore. They don't even come close. I can't rubber band them and make them work until I can lose 5 pounds. No, instead I am forced to realize that I really have gained way too much weight. How did that happen? Surely not because I eat whatever I feel like eating whenever I feel like eating it?

The shorts are one problem. In 6 weeks I leave for the reservation where we will be working outside in sometimes extremely hot temps. And I have no shorts. That's a problem because extra money is an oximoron around here. But I can shop thrift stores to find some old/new shorts. That problem is relatively easy to fix. The real problem is my weight. I've known for a while that I've got to do something, but never get past that to the actual doing of the something. So this reminder is here for me....

If Nothing Changes,
Nothing Changes!
