Weigh-In … Fighting Comfort

Today’s Weight:  171.5
Loss/Gain:  +1.0
With TOM arriving this past week and me still looking for my weight-loss mojo I’m not surprised by the gain.
I have done well with the Body Revolution workouts, but a 30-minute DVD doesn’t burn the extra calories I’m not supposed to be eating anyway I’m used to burning from an hour of cardio at the gym.
The week of TOM is not a good week to get all introspective, because it usually brings out ugly feelings of failure and “I can’t do this”, etc. etc.  So, I’ll just say that I really admire people who put their mind to losing weight and just get it done.  I’ve never been like that and I’m amazed by those who do.  
I’ve written this post over and over again and I’ve decided I’m not going to try and pull apart everything that is wrong with what I’m doing.  
I do know that I was thinking of asking my kids to help me stay on track this summer (I know they’d love the job of being Mom’s food police), but I realized that I have to do this for me and my health, not just because someone else told me what to do.  
There are other areas of my life wherein I’m fighting what has always been old and comfy, because I’m realizing they are ways that lead to frustration.  It’s not easy, because even if the “old and comfy” is full of bad attitudes I have found myself feeling justified in my way of thinking.  Kind of like in my healthiness journey.  
So, the fight continues…along with the amazement at how so many areas of struggle in our lives are interconnected.  Perfection is not my goal, but I will continue ” to press toward the goal for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”  Philippians 3:14
Thanks for checking in!  Have a great weekend!

    Next week will be better! I had a very similar week as well. Goals are set for a better week!


  2. The fight does continue. In a lot of ways this weight loss fight is not dissimilar to those other things we fight in our lives. Just one day at a time and continued diligence. And maybe fewer coffee drinks. 🙂
