Weigh-In … Self Evaluation

Today’s Weight: 205.5
Loss/Gain: -1.5 lbs.
Total Loss So Far: -25.5 lbs.

I’m happy with the loss for this week. The food still wasn’t the best, but I did try some.
I tried some.
This is a problem I have and I’ve been spending some time reevaluating myself the past few days and looking at what I do, or don’t do, that affects my weight loss journey.
Our pastor preached a really good sermon Wednesday night on choices. He talked about how many times we don’t think we’ll pay the price for the choices we make, but eventually they will catch up with us. This is so true in everything, but you know for me it was especially true in my weight loss journey.
I remember last fall reading on someone’s weight loss blog something along the lines of “if you give 50%, then you’re going to see 50% results”. That’s how I’ve been.
Honestly, I can’t write and say a miracle is going to change and I’m suddenly going to give 110% and see the weight drop off, but I am going to work at upping my level of commitment to more than just 50%.
I gave 100% to the Couch to 5K program and I got 100% results. If I can do that, then I know I can give more effort towards my eating and see better results in that area as well.

    Great job on the loss! You know, each day you have a chance to give 100%. Not every day will that happen, but the opportunity is there. If you string together more 100% days than not, you are going in the right direction.


  6. I needed to hear that because I have to commit to a job search. The 5% I've been putting in just isn't panning out into anything.

    Your pastor is so right about paying for the choices we make.

    Congrats on the loss. You're chipping away at it!
