Biggest Loser, perhaps 8 months and counting.
Eight months down and a lifetime to go. Funny how as normal human beings we are always looking for a quick fix for our problems with minimal effort on our part. Tend to not want to take personal responsibility for where we have come nor in the solution. We prefer a quick pill, tonic, or a wonder diet that will shed unwanted pounds in 2 weeks like magic. I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but there is no such animal. sure, it can work for the short term but in most cases you will gain what you have lost and then some. Funny how life is like that, any time we go for the quick fix in life, we get spanked. Real solutions take time, patience, hard work, and a lot of leaning on God. Personally I know that my journey into self control will not be over when I reach that magic goal weight, I am in this for a lifetime. Praise God that He is able to carry me through some (most ;) ) days!
I will have my honey take a picture in a few days to post.. but for now.. drum roll please ;)
Vital Statistics January 7,2010:
5 foot 6 inches tall 186.1 pounds (13stone 4.1 lb or 84.4kilos) which is a total loss of 52.7 pounds (3st 10.7 pound or 23.9 kilos)
I am pleased to note that, with God’s grace, I was even able to lose 4 lbs over the holiday season. Now, I don’t want to give the impression that I have this whole dieting thing wrapped up and tied with a beautiful bow. Honestly, I still struggle with self control over food. Actually, self control is the problem. I struggle with giving God his rightful control over my life. Thankfully He is good and gracious and is there when I call out in prayer when I am about to dive in to a tin of chocolate covered yumminess. He reminds me that His LOVE IS ENOUGH and that I don’t need a yummy to feel good about who I am. Being that I can be kind of a slow learner, good thing He doesn’t mind a little repetition in reminding me of that gem of wisdom!!
