Listen up Bud.
I was overweight and in terrible shape...everybody and their brother told me I needed to lose weight, but I did not listen,...heartattacks only happen to other people....THEN, one day I had a mini Stroke while at work...Doc told me I was very lucky...he told me if I have another one, better hope I die, or I will become nothing but a HUGE burden to my family, since they will have to feed me, and change my diapers for the next 20 - 25 years....THAT is a wakeup call.....
Get your shit together my friend, you have a family who needs you to stick around for a long, long time....Dont push your luck, you might not be as "lucky" as I was....
Fast foward 20 months...lost 100+ pounds, discovered the iron.....I truly am in the best shape of my life....looking back, I now know how fortunate I was not to die that day.....DO NOT put yourself in that position.

The iron is there during my times of happiness, sadness and anger. The iron is there available through the 4 seasons and inclement weather. The iron is there to either comfort me or motivate me. The Iron manages to show me how strong I am or how humble I need to be. The iron does not yell, but it always demands respect. The iron is not a disciplinarian, but when disrespected, I feel it for a long time. The iron does not love or hate, but we definitely share a strong bond. And no matter how far I stay away or for how long, the iron is there, waiting to be lifted.
