So, I’m on a diet.
Last Friday a few of my friends came to me and told me that it was time, I had to lose some weight. I think that takes some guts and respect to say that to a friend, whatever the issue is… so I thank you.
Later that day Nancy and I started our 8 hour drive down to Grafton, West Virginia for a Memorial Day family reunion. We devised a gabeplan for food and exercise and Nancy asked “What if we gave you a goal or prize to work towards?” We all know how difficult it can be to stay committed to these sort of things, especially if you don’t see any immediate results. When Nancy said, “What about a Leica camera?” I knew there was a reason I married her, but had she known that the inevitable hankering for a leica had bit me? Earlier that week I had been on Leica’s a-la-carte-website where you can customize your very own leica and had printed out a couple dreams…
So the bike is tuned up and I’m riding 15 miles round trip to work, up and over the Brooklyn Bridge, a totally top of the world feeling.
Don’t worry I’m still eating, but just not as much and a lot of carrott sticks!
Since I started a week ago, I’ve lost 12lbs so you might be seeing a smaller version of me with a leica camera sooner than you think!
