Promises and more promises are empty without being accompanied by real action. I have been promising myself to take the steps to finally rid my body of the excess fat I have been carrying around for far too long. I am particularly concerned with the visceral fat that could some day cause very serious health problems. I have run out of time. It is now or never. I am starting a regime of using HCG drops as well as pulling myself away from the idiot tube and walking to the gym that's half a mile from my home. I have a feeling this is really going to happen. I was just reading about what would happen if I didn't take the right steps. Believe me, fear is a great motivator.
