It’s been 29 days already! Seriously?!? The time seems to have just flown by. Luckily, all this time, I’ve had a lot more successes than failures. So where am I at? This morning, mentally, I was ready to just quit. My brain was telling me that 17 pounds was more than enough weight lost. What’s the point of losing more. Most of my clothes now fit pretty well. Let’s just call it good.
That was really hard to push through. I luckily had some external assistance to force me to not give in to the temptation. It’s called, bring your wife to the doctor because she might have another kidney stone. Around 10am I had to get grandma over to watch 2 of the 3 kids (other one was at school). Then run the wife to the doctor, then work from the waiting room. I didn’t get a chance to eat breakfast as a result. Which in turn allowed me to splurge and go to Chipotle. My wife and I always split a single burrito. It is the only thing we ever split when we eat out. It spawned from the realization that a whole burrito with chips was a little gross. Though, we still order our own meals everywhere else. Not sure why we can’t get the hint to do this everywhere.
Anyway, that bad event (wife is ok, no kidney stones, but still not feeling well) has spun into a positive at least for my Weight Loss Challenge. My attitude towards my challenge today has done a 180 and I’m now excited for tomorrow. Good luck to everyone else who might be working to lose some weight.
