Please help me get it back!

Another busy day has come to a close and I am pleased as well as disappointed in myself. Pleased because I resisted this afternoon when I was sorely tempted to stop at KFC for the all-you-can-eat fried chicken buffet, but disappointed because I did not make time for any serious exercise. Here I am , less than 24 hours from my weekly weigh in, and less than ten days away from my first 5k run in over a decade and I am acting like a person without goals, or a person with goals but not enough heart to accomplish them.

But the truth is, I do have goals, and I do have heart! I can’t droop is self pity, but I don’t think I can get rolling again on my own. I’m going to need your prayers, encouraging words, and over all support if I’m going to get back on track. This entry is starting to sound like my very first post when I basically begged for your help. I swallowed my stupid pride, asked for your help and you gave it to me. If you’re out there, and you can find the time, please please please do something for me. A prayer, a text or an email…call me if you can and remind me how important this is. Remember, it’s not what I know about weight loss, it’s how I feel about what I know that will keep me on track, and obviously I have lost the feeling. Please help me get it back!

I lose that feeling too. I go for a couple weeks strong and then for some reason, I poop out. Then, something will come along and remind me why I set this goal in the first place and I will get back up and going again for another couple weeks. For me right now, it comes down to feeling good at the end of the day. I want to be able to look back on the day and be happy with how I handled myself. Today I am proud of what I did. I hope to be proud tomorrow too. I am proud of you and the example you are for all of us. Hang in there.

You can more than do it, Brent! I know you can!

Don't give up, Brent. Look at how successful you've been so far! It is really inspiring to read your posts.

Did you ever do anything with that old belt that's too big? I think you ought to glue a magnetic strip to the back of it and stick it right on the refrigerator door. Every time you look at it, you can remember all the good choices you made that got you where you are so far.

This is what I've discovered....that it's pointless to diet and see no results. There is nothing worse, in my opinion. You should try the hcg diet. They say men lose even more than women and they lose it faster too. A pound a day usually. I'm starting my 3rd stint today. I love it. It's the only one that has ever worked for me.
