I hope you had a great Halloween.
I got to to go trick-or-treating with my nephew.
He dressed up as CatBoy from the show PJ Masks.
I never saw the show but he looked adorable in his costume anyway.
He just turned 4 a few days ago but he was a real trooper by going door to door and never got tired.
Since there were many other trick-or-treaters out and about there were also many parents with their kids.
After just 15 or 20 minutes of trick-or-treating…
I could already hear many of the parents complaining about how hard it was to walk from house to house and up steps with their kids.
It wasn’t like they were pushing wheelbarrows or carrying heavy objects around.
The heaviest thing they had was an umbrella and an iPhone.
After about 45 minutes I didn’t hear a single kid complaining but I kept hearing the adults asking their kids “have you had enough?”
Or just telling their kids they could only go to a few more houses and we’re done.
These parents didn’t have any costumes on but they should all have dressed up as the Grinch.
Trick-or-treating only comes once a year and lasts for 2 hours.
Kids look forward to it all year.
(At least I did.)
But the out of shape parents were moaning and groaning about how they couldn’t walk anymore or they were too tired after less than an hour.
Now I know the neighborhood very well.
My sisters has lived there quite a few years and I visit quite often.
So I know many of the neighbors.
Most of them are in the mid 30’s early 40’s age range.
So they aren’t anywhere near elderly.
Yet just walking around was too hard for them and you could see the disappointment in their kids faces when they knew they had to go home soon.
It’s not the kids fault their parents didn’t take care of their health.
Yet the kids suffered the consequences last night.
And I can almost guarantee they had to share a lot of the candy they worked hard to get with their parents too.
I know kids have more energy and stamina than adults.
But it wasn’t like they were playing soccer or running laps at the local high school track.
They were walking very slowly around a neighborhood.
Now maybe you don’t have kids.
Or if you do you didn’t walk around with them last night.
But is there anything else you can think of that tires you out way to fast. Something that you want to do but can’t because your weight is holding you back?
Maybe it’s just not feeling confident to wear something you want to wear.
Or just fit back into something you no longer can’t fit into anymore.
My point is just losing 10 or 20 pounds can dramatically change your life. And for the better. It will enable you to do more things you love with the ones you love.
So if you need some help losing weight…
