Still in the Race

As long as there’s life, there’s hope!

Today is a good day.  Because I say it is.  Because God made it and everything God made was beautiful.  Before sin.

I know.  It’s been a while.  A long while.  And here I am again.  Back in the 150’s.  I’m not going to lie.  It’s a struggle.  My weight.  And it’s been a life-long struggle.  I doubt that this new diet will end my struggle.  BUT God.  Because with God all things are possible.  And even if I struggle it doesn’t mean I cannot succeed in winning this fight against fat.  This is a race, but it’s not a sprint.  It’s a marathon and it’s not over until it’s over!

I have had the habit of having a goal of two pounds a week when I dieted (tried a new lifestyle, whatever).  However, it has recently come to my attention that unless you are over 200 pounds, that goal is unrealistic.  “Experts” say that a more reasonable goal is only one pound a week.  OK, as long as we make progress who cares if it takes 2 months or 4?  Who am I kidding?  I care!  I’m not gifted with patience.  Nonetheless, one can’t argue with reality.

So, one pound a week it is!  I just read “101 ways” to lose a pound a week.  Some good ideas there, for sure.  I want do some fasts.  Maybe a detox or two.

My goal is to focus on forming life-long habits to make me healthy and to keep me healthy.
