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!
