The thought for Day 2 has really been sticking with me so I felt I needed to put it in to words. It basically asks if I am interested in loosing weight or am I committed. Hmm, I had never really thought of it like that before.
Of course, I'm interested. I'm about 60 pounds overweight. I've been carrying this extra weight around since I had my first son. I used to be athletic & thinner. I used to wear clothes that were five to six sizes smaller than what I do now. I used to be able to TUCK in my shirt & not feel self-conscious of my belly. I used to be able to shop in the regular woman's department at stores. Now I look...well, we won't go there.
However, I have made no progress on this weight loss goal of mine. I may loose a pound here or there but it always creeps back on - plus some more. I know what I need to do to loose weight. I need to exercise more & eat less. I need to eat healthier foods & cut out the junk & sweets. I KNOW what I need to do, but I don't do it.
I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. ~Romans 7:15 (NIV)
So, if I am committed to loosing weight, then I have no excuse. I'll do it. There will be nothing to stop me. I'll do what I know I should do. I'll exercise every day. I'll eat more fruits & veggies. I'll cut out the sweets. I'll get healthy. Day 3 was about just doing it - no excuses.
I figured out that I AM committed. Now to reap the rewards of that commitment.
