I am not getting rid of this chair. I will die on this hill, in this chair

Down another belt hole! Down 21.2 lbs since March, which actually makes 56% of the way to my goal weight.

“Death, sir.” answered the aide once again.

I don’t remember where this came from, but I think it is important to retell occasionally.

There is an old Chinese fable about rules being too strict. During the time of a very “law and order” Chinese emperor, there was a Chinese General who was going to be late after being summoned by the emperor.

The hills are behind you now, and there’s little more than seemingly endless road ahead. Twilight sets in, then night. The scenery fades into the darkness and your world becomes a dark road punctuated by the flash of white lines. The country music station turns to static, the pop station is long gone. Just where does this AM station broadcast from that you can pick it up this far into your journey?

Where indeed?
