100 days

Some time ago I purchased "The Magic Hundred" - a goal setting program of sorts.

side thought -

I often wonder how many coalition members sort of cross-pollinate. I guess what I mean is, I found out about the FAT coalition (specifically Billy's site) from Craig Ballantyne's TT site. Seems like there is so much cross marketing and merchandising amongst these "authors" that I'm sure we've all seen a lot of the same info on the web. Generally I think all coalition members (whether we are achieving success or not) are "seekers". That is we all want to make positive changes in our lives and for that reason we are constantly looking for ideas, tips, motivation, etc. Based on that, I guess the Internet can be either a blessing or a curse. Ultimately it all boils down to the daily decisions we make but (speaking for myself) I believe we all want more from life and with respect to the FAT coalition, "more" really means "less" in terms of body fat.

I guess the trick is turning a lifetime of learning into a lifetime of achieving.

- end of side thought

OK, so anyway. There was an update and 2nd release of the M100 and since I had purchased it previously I got a free copy. As it turns out my wife is due with our 3rd child in (take a guess...) 100 days. Coincidence? Perhaps. Or not. Maybe things truly happen for a reason.

I've got my copy in hand and began reading it again on the commute to work this AM. IMHO great stuff.

Thanks for the post on my blog Gene. All your talk of the FAT coalition kind of makes me sad. For the most part the majority of the coalition has kind of signed off or are posting very little. I am glad there are still a few of us left posting semi regularly. I have tried to broaden my horizon on the blogspot weight loss community. I have found lots of blogs to follow but not many people that are looking to follow and comment on my site. It makes me really miss the activity and bond the FAT coalition had. Also makes you wonder if the time you spend writing blogs is really worth it. Then I also remember that its a outlet and way to talk about my success and failures. Anyway I will quit getting all philosophical etc.

Congrats on the new child on the way. children are wonderful and I am so glad I decided to have them in my life (there was a time when I didn't think I would have any). Glad to see you are still striving to make life better. Like you said thats what we are all about. Keep the posts rolling and take care.
