Why not me?

I've been feeling extra motivated since the Super Bowl and listening to interviews with Russell Wilson. His Dad asked him, "Why not you Russ?"

I've been working slowly on my weight loss but nothing serious as I've never been lean and healthy. Hearing him got me thinking, "Why not me?" I look at the pics of other dudes who are lean, healthy, and actually have discernible muscles. Well shiat - Why not me? Why can't I look like that?

Thanks to that mantra and MFP I've been busting my *kitten* since. Actually pushing it at the gym, on my walks, and on the treadmill rather than going through the motions.

Thanks MFPers for the support you provide even though it isn't necessarily direct.
