Diet Redemption; No regrets (Red Dead or not) You always get another chance!by Sonja Rose on Jun. 19, 2010, under Health
In the new blockbuster video game, Red Dead Redemption, (PS3 or Xbox 360) ex-outlaw and gunfighter John Marston sometimes makes mistakes and a bounty gets placed on his head; however, he is always given another chance to redeem himself, and start over again.
It reminded me of all the diets I had ever been on in the past, then gained weight back, and had to start over again. Thank goodness I always kept trying, didn’t give up, then finally figured out how to “live thin,” and have now have maintained a 50-pound weight loss since 2001.
Recently, I visited Tombstone, Ariz., with my 17-year-old son, Mackie. There I rubbed elbows with gunfighters of the Old West, Wyatt and Morgan Earp, who re-enacted the shootout at the OK Corral with Doc Holliday. These characters inspired me to keep up the fight, and remember that “living the thin lifestyle” is always worth it.
