Shifting Gears

In life we go through many phases. And our minds go to many places. Some people stay right where they are. And sadly, don't go very far. It's when we get outside ourselves. And climb down off those dusty shelves. That we can find a whole new world. And spend them nuts that we have squirreled. It seems that in today's society. You need not move to get variety. We sit and click and never move. And causes health to not improve. Then one day comes an ultimatum. And we heed the warning verbatim. Blood pressure's high and so is glucose. We don't ask why and we don't suppose. The answers clear, it's time to shift. Into high gear to slim midriff. And when we start to feel a change. Our whole live's start to rearrange. So find a way that keeps you moving. So you can continue improving. And soon you'll start feeling much better. When you become a daily sweater. And as the weight begins to shed. You'll sleep much better in your bed. So don't just click, get up instead. Before you wake and find you're dead.

Thank you Gregory. Lost another pound, loving going in the other direction. Still a ways to go, but am feeling pretty good and positive about being able to get back to a healthy life style. <3 :)
