Today, the President had a meeting with his cabinet and then had a statement in the Rose Garden. I walked over (right across Pennsylvania Avenue) and then attended the Rose Garden announcement. As the group of correspondents met on the driveway in front of the White House to be escorted into the Rose Garden, my friend — CBS White House Correspondent Jim Axelrod (seen below next to me and CNN’s Suzanne Malveaux before a news conference during a recent trip to Austria) — said to me “you look like you lost a few more lbs, is that Men’s Health thing working?”
I replied, “I think so, but I’ll tell you in a few months”. My life, while my job is to report on TV, has been a yo-yo of dieting and exercising so hopefully this will put me on the right track for good to get to what I think would be my ideal weight — 185 or so. But — most importantly — with a little one on the way, I want to be a healthy Dad so I’ll be around for the long haul! I am off to write my story for the day… and will try to STAY AWAY FROM THE SNACK MACHINE!
