This has been a record week! A little radical, but lots of results. I know it’s not the best regimen for losing weight to take off so much at one time, but I was really motivated to try and reach my goal of being under 300 lbs. by my birthday tomorrow. With a little more determination, I have 24 hours to do just that. This week has been a little crazy, with gym every day, doing 20 -30 minutes on the elliptical machine, Doing mostly juicing every day, and resisting temptation big time! I weighed in last Monday at 314 and was pretty disappointed that the gap had widened even from the day before, instead of shrinking. So, I just put it into “D” for determination, and put the pedal to the metal! Monday was big, as I lost 6 pounds! Then Tuesday, I lost 3 1/2, Wednesday, 2, Thursday, 1/2, and it stayed at 302 both Friday and Saturday with no weight loss, even though I was still mostly juicing and still hitting the gym. This morning it went down 1 more pound to 301, and I believe I can be under 300 tomorrow!
From this point, I will try to keep a little more sane program of exercise and food intake, but I really wanted to reach this short term goal for some reason. I don’t think the numbers are all that important, though. The important thing is what I have become inside in order to reach those numbers. The strength developed, the character built, the discipline applied. That all counts much more than just numbers, which are just units of measurement. The real change and lasting change is on the inside. What the struggle has made you become! Thank you all for your prayers and support. It is wonderful to have friends like you cheering me on. Please feel free to get in touch if you are facing some of the same challenges, and would like to talk or chat with someone who understands. “Don’t give up till you win!”
