I have been thinking about how awesome the human body is lately. When you are living an unhealthy life and view your body as something you would rather not think about, appreciation for that body isn't something you think about. As I have lost the weight, I have a new appreciation for this work in progress.

Think about it. Your body is the perfect machine.

 You can run it 15-20 hours a day. The harder you work it, the stronger it becomes and the more it can do. While it does require proper fuel, it has the ability of turning something like a banana into energy. The only machine I know that can do that is Back to the Future II's Mr. Fusion (very cool). Sorry, I am a product of the late 80's early 90's people.

When needed, like in the case of a deadly and satanic spider running towards you, your body has the ability to go into overdrive and even give  you super strength in times of need. As adrenaline hits the body an astonishing amount of power can be exerted when needed. The body can do amazing things, even RAD things.

Potential is something I think a lot about. I am amazed at the potential I was keeping inside for so long I was like Daniel-san. I was angry at life, didn't like who I was or the situation I had to deal with. It felt like all the problems in the world were on me when in reality the problem was me. I learned to fight for myself. Fight for the right to live my best life. While I am still not ready for the final round of the championship match and still waxing on and off, I have become confident in my ability to get the job done.

You are defiantly not Better Off Dead nor are you resigned to your state of apathy towards life. You have a potential that is unreal inside of you begging you to do something with it. It's as tragic as a 1969 Camero SS sitting in the garage never being driven. It's time to live life.

When the world told me "Badger? We don't need no stinkin' badger!" I listened for too long. I sat on my butt and resigned my life to apathy, frustration and disappointment. See yourself for who you can become.

There is a hidden treasure in you. It's not easy to find it but it is there. But it requires giving up the old you. Hmmm treasure or a bag of sand.... It's not going to be easy, but it will sooooo be worth it.

Okay. These are some of my favorites. Leave a comment with a link to your blog or a link to a picture with your 80s weight loss movie reference....
