Well, yesterday I spent a few hours with dad on the roof. He has been trying to get a new roof on all summer and it seems like rain is always in the way. The last 4 days have been beautiful so we got to get a nice chunk done the last couple of days. I am happy to say that I helped. I can honestly say that 6 months ago there is no way I would of went and helped him more then an hour or so. I was so dang lazy that I would of found a way to get out of it. Dad is over 50 and has many aches and pains from years of motercycle wrecks and his job. In the last 2 years he has had rotator cuff surgery, acl and mcl work on his knees. Broke his hand and other bones. The guy is a trooper though and has never shyed away from work. Today I was there from a little after 10 until about 7:30 on the roof with him. He took the day off work to try and get what was tore off covered before the rain came tomorrow. It was great just to spend time with him and talk. He works his tail off and refuses to ask for help from anyone. He is up there all day long and of course we worry about him. I am just glad that I got off my lazy azz and realized there are more important things in life then TV or the computer. Losing the weight has helped me so much in life with my family. I want to be alot more active and today was just awesome. I am sore, with blisters on both hands, back hurts, knees hurt, but I can honestly say I smiled from ear to ear all day just being able to do the work and not feel so exausted. I would do it again tomorrow knowing how sore I would be. This is motivation for me to keep the weight off and for anyone else that needs to fight the battle. Life is short people and there is so much out there. Yeah, laying around is easy to do, but you are missing out on so much in life. Please, take the weight loss fight and lose it today. Do it why you can because you never know what you will miss out on. To hear my dad tell me thanks for all the help, brought tears to my eyes folks, the guy does not show emotion. I will sleep good tonight with a smile on my face.
