     As I approached the elliptical machine at the gym today, a young guy started talking to he knew me.  I was hesitant to speak with him.  I didn't recognize him.  "How does he know me?" I thought.  As he continued speaking I thought "Did we go to college together? Did we work together once?"  Finally, he said "well, you're a regular here....."  Did he just call me a REGULAR?  He recognized me because we were both there, working out every day.  He considered me a friend.  Have I actually become one of them?  A real live gym rat? I felt this sudden sense of pride. That meant I was doing what I set out to do. Get in the gym, work hard make it a priority and a lifestyle.

     Even though the scale hasn't moved I was thrilled to have been recognized as a "regular".  The only time I was ever considered a regular was at the local bar in college.  That's progress and motivation in my book!
