Things are coming together nicely! I will need every advantage I can muster to handle the workload ahead of me during the 6 month leave in humid, hot Southeast Asia. 53 is rather an older age to carry everything I need to carry, in the dump and elsewhere. Not only do I need to lug all that stuff around Asia, I need to make good creative decisions when I get there. Not being overly worn down and tired will help that creativity.
The goal is 220lbs before I go to Thailand then lose another 10-15 pounds during my time there making pics and the film. Coming back to Canada I hope to way about 205-210lbs. I think this is very doable, I just need the eating discipline and exercise to get it done. Slowly and surely just like the turtle, I plan to win this race. Hopefully I can also create some important photographs and a worthwhile documentary film on that same journey.
