Not giving up, Not giving in!

Most of the time it is fairly easy to stay focused on my transformation. However, there are those days when I just want to throw in the towel for the day and eat whatever I want without having to worry if it is going to add pounds to the scale or not. Today was one of those days. My wife and I want to subway for lunch and she ordered first. A 6″ sub on wheat. Man did that sound good. A nice bug 12″ meatball sub on Italian herbs and cheese bread toasted with pepperoni. Instead I said, I’ll have a chopped salad. A victory that seems minor but in the moment it was huge. I could have completely sabotaged myself today and for what, because I didn’t want a sales, or I didn’t want to eat healthy? Is that the attitude that is going to get me to my goal? Wanting something just because I haven’t had it in a while or miss the flavor of it or just don’t want a salad, is not a good enough reason. I can eat whatever I want, don’t get me wrong. I could have ordered the sub and everything could have been just fine, but what would that have said to the way that I view myself or the way that I should take care of my body. I know that at this point, not having bread in a while, it would have made me feel horrible physically, and made me upset with myself mentally and I probably would have wondered if I could really do this. Well, I can do this and I am going to do this. I am taking personal responsibility for what I eat and how I treat my body. I have a goal of losing 90+ more pounds and I am going to get there. I am going to be the person that God wants me to be and be, and no longer a victim of comfort food. It has been said that when times are tough the tough get going. Well it’s time to get going again. I have been stuck at about the same weight since the 5th of this month. I can blame it on stress, I can blame it on prior success and say that I have come this far I can do what I want, I can blame it on a bunch of things, but those are all excuses. I am going to stick with my food plans and continue on my journey. I wanted to share this because it was days like today and this weekend that would come previously and I would throw in the towel and say it’s not worth it. Many people probably experience this and there are two choices. Stick with it or throw in the towel. I choose to stick with it. Lets make this happen!

Another victorious step from big to small!

  1. Keep up the hard work Tim. Your goal is achievable. It will be great to see you on a maintenance diet in the near future. I’m excited for you!

    • Definitely exciting! I am amazed at how fast the weight was coming off. I need to keep on this way of eaton for sure right now. I have been a little lax and the weight stopped coming off. Gotta get more strict and start exercising. We need o do that together sometime by the way. Hit me up. Thanks for your support Andy!

  2. You are doing great! So glad to see the positive results you have achieved. You have been a big encouragement to me as I’ve been pursuing my own fight against weight and diabetes — I know the Lord is pleased as well when we make decisions to take care of the body and the health He has given us!

    • Thanks Brian! It is good to hear that I am inspiring someone else to take a stand. I appreciate your encouragement and look forward to hearing more about your journey as it progresses. Right now I am kind of stuck in a big way. I need to start exercising and need that accountability.
