Week 31 Weigh-in

Sorry, forgot to log it this week.

Starting weight: 505.4 lbs
Week 31 Weight: 460.4 lbs
Week 31 Change: -1.0 lbs
Total Weight Loss: 45 lbs


Another loss, and keeping up the 2 lbs / week average. Hoping for another strong week.  I've had a few less-than-stellar days this week, so the goal is to finish the week strong. 

I'm sorry that I'm not very chatty lately.  To be honest, I'm feeling a bit uneasy lately about the diet/fitness thing.  I'm just not feeling especially confident lately--not that I'm having second thoughts about committing to do this, but rather that I don't trust myself to have the strength to persevere.  And just saying "I'm gonna do it! I'm never giving up!" is a load of empty words.  I'm tired of empty words.

It's funny (and perhaps fitting) that I find myself going back to the simple phrase that has kept me going in the past:  Win the day.

You screwed up the diet yesterday? Let that go. Win the day.

You haven't gone to the gym in a week? Start over. Win the day.

Your sleeping habits are erratic, and you feel exhausted? Shake it off. Win the day.

I can't promise I'll hit all my fitness goals.  I certainly want to reach my goal weight and live a healthy life well into my twilight years.  But I'm feeling too weak to give you guarantees of that. So I'm just going to focus on winning the day.

Remember that the Holy Spirit is in you & He is our strength to accomplish what God sets before us. There's a lot that I have learned that I just can't do myself - I will and have failed. The Holy Spirit is our power for godly living. He will win the day through you. Keep it up!

Focusing on winning the day is the best way to get there!

Hiding. That's where I am. It hasn't been good, gang.

I'll come clean next week.

I'm starting to think this blog is more an exercise in audience persuasion than any kind of self-motivational tool. Just another aspect of you loving to write.

That's tongue-in-cheek, now.
