On another note after I gained about 20 pounds my knees were killing me...I had to decide if food was more important than Aikido. It wasn't....great motivation to lose weight and keep training for the rest of my life. Change is neither good not bad....it is constant.
I haven't gotten to that point yet... talk about resisting change... Oh well, we all have issues that are at the core of what we need to be working on. I suspect that this is mine but I haven't gotten my mind right.
