It’s not a resolution. I never said, “In 2008 I resolve to…” Nope. I’m just trying to pick up where I left off… 3 years ago. 3 years ago my wife was pregnant with our daughter. I wanted to lose weight. I bought the Leslie Sansone Walk Away the Pounds DVDS, signed up for Weight Watchers, and obtained a scale. I made several other key life decisions. The result was that I lost 40 lbs and improved my health considerably.
So I am back at it. I haven’t signed up for WW, but they sent me a nice offer to come back… maybe I’ll take it. I have cut back on my sodas. Now I get half and half and only one in the day. I need to cut them out completely. I am walking. It is sad, I do the 1 mile walk and my thighs are burning by the end. I am out of shape.
So it begins… I want to lose weight. I need to lose weight. At my weight how long do I have until I develop diabetes, serious heart disease, or something else life threatening? I would like to be looked upon not as a tubby guy, but a fit guy. I want to teach my children good and healthy eating habits before they are cursed with a weight problem. I look forward to being able to buy clothes at Walmart… and have them fit.
But I have a concern. I feel like I am doing it alone. Not that Stacy isn’t helping. No, I am having to motivate myself. When I don’t want to workout, somehow I need to overcome that mindset and get moving. When the goodies are calling my name like a Syren Song, I have to will myself not to answer. So I am asking all of you out there in internet land, say a prayer for me. Perchance the Heavenly Father will give me just that touch more will power to exercise and eat right that I didn’t have a moment ago. Thank you…
May you be covered in the dust of your rabbi.
