There is nothing like a friend who can with you and also take a joke.    That is my friend Zane Petersen.  You might know that name from our Podcast “TURNBUCKLE TRASH’.

Zane and I were recording our latest pod on Pro- Wrestling and before we started recording we were just catching up when Zane called me “ATHLECTILY OVER WEIGHT “

I guess that is the P.C. version of being overweight

I have struggled with my weight my entire life and you know what I am OK with that.  I have big bones!

True story: several years ago I injured my knee and went to see the Dr to get things right.   X-Rays of my legs and knees were taken and as I waited for the DOC.  Finally a knock at the door and in comes this highly thought of Orthopedic Surgeon and his first words to me were and I quote ‘MY YOU HAVE BIG BONES”

Why yes Doctor and thanks for noticing.

I do have a large frame.  I wear a size 14 extra wide shoe.

Yes I wish I could flip a switch and have 100 pounds come off my body but I can’t so I don’t sweat it ( maybe if I did more sweating some of those pounds would come off)  My point is this.   I like me the size I am now, I like me in college when I was Six foot One and 212.   I like me at any weight and I can and will joke about my weight and you can too.

If you are like me and struggle in the department of tonology just do your best and be happy

So now thanks to my friend Zane I can say proudly I AM ATHLECTILY OVERWIEGHT!

When I buy cookies I eat just four and throw the rest away. But first I spray them with Raid so I won’t dig them out of the garbage later. Be careful, though, because that Raid really doesn’t taste that bad.
