Yet again Jack sneaks off from his own amusing blog Jack Sh*t, Gettin’ Fit and clues us in to the Secret Struggles of the Man Behind the Sh*t!
Welcome again, Jack! --Crabby
Here we are again.
This is my ongoing series from my super-secret weight-loss blogging project called Man Overboard that I started and abandoned (much like many of my diets) last year.
The Crankster has been kind enough to give me a new forum to run the posts.
Hope they float your boat.
Man Overboard: And The Band Played On
I don’t know if it’s true or not….
The story that the band aboard the S. S. Titanic continued to play as the great, doomed ship was going down.
That’s kind of the way I’ve been with my weight loss struggles.
Understanding that there was a problem.
Knowing that I was sinking.
Thinking I could do nothing to change it.
Might as well play on.
Play on… because in the face of certain disaster, there is cold comfort in something that puts a smile on your face, even if it’s only for a minute or two.
Play on… because sometimes anything more than instant gratification doesn’t seem like it’s worth the effort.
I can see the iceberg coming on the distant horizon.
There’s time to save myself if I can just get up and get going.
There’s a lifeboat with my name on it.
Get in and start rowing.

“Sometimes, though, you make a pact with yourself. I'll pretend there's nothing wrong if you pretend there's nothing wrong. It's called denial, and it's one of the strongest pacts in the world. Just ask all those people who were still drinking champagne while the Titanic went down.”
