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.
