Baby Steps and Minor Victories

Well My Friends,

What can I say. I want to share with you a minor victory. Today I took up the gumption of getting on the scale after not being bothered with it for about 2 Weeks. To my own amazement, I did a double take when the scale gave me the result. I LOST 14 Pounds! I have been doing baby steps and changing some of the bad habits that has attributed to my current condition.

Now I am siked Up! I cannot wait to be able to exercise on a consistent basis. I am not giving up on the hope that I will reach my goal of 200 Pounds. I have a very realistic goal. I can live with 220, but my ultimate goal is to be 200 Lbs. So far, 14 down and about 1 million to go LOL.... Lets just say, at least 100 Lbs.

With the love and encouragement of my God, my family and those friends closest to me, IT WILL happen. Therefore, I feel a small sense of accomplishment and I am looking forward to more.

I Wanna Do That To...

As I sit here watching the Biggest Loser with my wife, I am amazed at the transformations these individuals have achieved in their weight loss journey. It is inspiring and at times heart wrenching to see the change in these individuals lives and see what they have gone through to get there. Truly I must say that I am inspired. Although, I often get a sense of inspiration when I watch The Biggest Loser. Uttering out of lips are the words, "I wanna do that to". But how? Where do I find the fortitude in me to work through the pain? Where do I find the will to tell myself, "You are not hungry, you are bored"?
I am not getting any younger and my health is badly compromised. So my question is; Am I just going to be content with the way I am and die a slow death, or do I just let go of ALL the fears and apprehensions that cripple?
The Bible says that He has not given us a spirit of fear, but one of courage and self control. As a minister of the gospel, I should trust more in what that word means and finally conquer that fear that disables me. A change needs to happen. There is so much more that I want to do and achieve, but above all; I want to have more time with my loved ones. To see my children and my grandchildren grow. Therefore, I have decided that the time has come to change my life.
I have made all the changes in my spiritual life and strengthened my personal relationship with God, but now the time has come to change ME. I need this more than anything. I am so tired of being in pain, I am so tired of being tired, I am so tired of not wearing what I want to wear, and above all I am tired of being afraid. So my friends, I am hoping that when we re-visit this next year, I will be about 100 Pounds lighter.
Help me pray for my success.
