Day 78

Great day of visiting with family. Quick observation -- Dad broke out the old slide show tonight. I was amazed at how slim and trim everyone was back in those days; not just my family, but even the people in the background. Rarely was there a picture of someone overweight. No one was much into fitness back in those days, so to me it was all about diet, diet, diet, and lifestyle.

I've said for years that when it comes to maintaining one's ideal body weight/body fat, at least 80% of it comes back to one's diet and daily activities. Exercise is only 20% or less of the equation.

At any rate, I couldn't get over how thin everyone was back in the 60's and 70's; I must have commented on it a dozen time.

Looking forward to tomorrow morning's early run and more time with the family.

Peace,
Chris

p.s. -- check out Project Graduate, Matt Fallin's blog. Awesome testimony and some great pics. Way to go Matt! You actually made me a little misty eyed.
