My First Week

imagesWell friend, it’s time to report on my first week of dieting. Before we get to the numbers, let me take this opportunity to thank everyone for their prayers and support. They truly mean a lot to me. Part way through the week, a friend shot me a quick message, encouraging me. I can’t express how blessed I was by that.

1 Thessalonians 5:11 Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.

Now for the big announcement. How much did I lose? Drum roll please. (This is where you strum your fingers on the desk top or table or the side of your head, whatever suits you best.)

I lost three pounds this week.

Wait, wait. I can see you scratching your heads and saying, Huh? You realize that at my weight, I am capable of greater numbers than this. You were expecting maybe in the double digits. Let me say, I agree with you. And to add, not as an excuse or a reason, but in explanation, it was a difficult week for my wife and I. We were constantly on the go, which meant a ton of eating out. I take full responsibility for my actions.

I guess one of the things I need to learn is to make healthier choices when dining at restaurants. Of course the better lesson is– Don’t eat at Restaurants! At least not on a regular basis.

But the good news is, I didn’t gain! I did lose something.

Keep the faith. Keep praying for me. I was touched by the well wishes and encouragement. Next week, we’ll see some better results.
