Last week my weigh-in got way off track. I’m happy to say that this week I got back on track … almost.
My goal weight for this week was 208 pounds. I weighed in this morning at 209.2 pounds. I’m active in my children’s Sunday school, so I didn’t have much time to waste this morning, but I got a little crazy trying to get that down to the high 208s. I held off on breakfast as long as I could. I even did our stairs for five minutes trying to work it down. Pardon my bluntness, but I knew the only hope I had of losing those extra ounces would come from using the bathroom, and guess what? I didn’t need to go.
So, I stopped acting like a fool, ate breakfast, drank my coffee, and headed out to church with the family. I wanted to be able to tell you that I got back on track so badly. I wanted to be able to report that I made it to 208 after getting so off course last week.
Ironically, the message at Sunday school today revolved around finding joy in disappointment and being content even in the face of adversity.
With that said, I’m going to look on the bright side. I’ll keep trying to hit 208 early in the week, and, hopefully, when next we speak, I’ll be at 207 pounds. I’m only just over 3 pounds away from my goal of reaching 205 pounds by the end of the month. I can do this.
Wish me luck!
