Who doesn't want a six-pack?  Not talking about beer here folks, I'm talking about a sculpted bod.

A progression to a six pack. I would settle for the middle status. The far right is actually a little bit much.

My good friend and Travel Buddy is a yoga enthusiast.  Recently he began taking pilates twice a week, in addition to his yoga classes. He sent me this photo this morning after his "boot camp" Pilates session. Pat, the results are there!  I'm jealous.

Pat this morning after his Pilates class - looking good Pat!

Way back when I used to have a sculpted body like this. That was when I used to walk a couple of miles to work every day (when I lived in Center City Philadelphia).  I put in a couple more miles walking around performing my job as a Trust Operations Manager at the bank where I worked.

Me on the beach in Provincetown, Mass 1976 - more hair, less fat

Also, these days my six-pack has been replaced with a permanent belly.  No, I'm not going to show you a photo of it.  I'm too ashamed.  In fact, I'm nervous about donning a swim suit when Pat and I next visit Palm Springs, California this coming February. At least our pool is private and I'll only have two display my little pot belly to Pat.

My Gawd, for one brief moment I thought that last photo was me!
Pat looks great and I like that '76 beach photo of you. I used to lift weights when I was in my early 20's but I never particularly liked sculpted bods.
Nowadays I'm lucky if I can lift a can of Pepsi....

When I read the title of your post I thought that is what I want to drink every time I hear POTUS open his mouth.

I used to lift weights too in the 70's. I don't now and it shows. I'll blame my arthritis.

Ron - I'd sure have to get rid of a lot of body fat to get abs showing in that first photo. Altho I've heard you can never be too thin or too rich.

I lost my abs and I don't know where to look for them! Help!
