An Epidemic and That Damn Switch!!

It seems there has been somewhat of an epidemic here lately in the bloggers I follow. It seems we are all struggling a bit to "stay on course". I know I have not been the guy I was for 8 months. I kinda had life get in the way, had stresses galore, and thought I have only put on 3 pounds from my low, I just haven't been moving forward and eating well like I should. Not eating bad per se, but not eating well and getting on with my 190 goal. It seems many of us have kinda stalled and I was thinking about why. I think a lot of it has to do with how much energy is expended when you are being serious about getting leaner and healthier. I made it my life's goal 7 days a week for 8-9 months. It was my primary focus. I lived weight loss and healthy eating, to the extreme even. so with that being said, I guess I had a break in me. I would say that I have successfully implemented better eating habits. Even when eating more than I would like, the quality of the food was better for the most part. I am much more active now than I used to be which helped keep me from bloating back up when I was not doing so well. But the reality is that i need to push forward in my quest. I need to get to my next goal of 190 pounds.

So, I decided, it is time to "flip the switch" again. I did it on July 17,2010, with the help of the Almighty and some blogging friends, and I can do it again. So, here it is, the symbolic flipping of that switch. It is back on. I am back to me. I have a day already under my belt to build on. I had the most excellent eating day yesterday and it was even more fulfilling because I asked for it. I prayed yesterday that God be with me for both the morning, which I never really have issues with and the evening after work, which is where my eating issues crop up. and He, as always, answered by giving me some phenomenal resolve last night! So I am asking Him again today, to be with me, to guide my choices and help me edge toward my new goal of 190 pounds! I bet it works!!


  1. I like the thought of intentionally flipping the switch...you're gonna get there Shane.
