Try, Try Again

imagesI’ve been avoiding this. Haven’t wanted to mention it and hoping that no one would remember. But the sad truth is, once it’s out there, it’s out there. I blogged about it. Can’t pretend I didn’t.

My weight-loss journey. If you remember, a few months before Christmas, I posted that I’d lose fifty pounds before the end of the year.

Some have asked me, “How’d you do?”

I failed. It’s that plain and simple. I failed. I stand right where I was in September.

I’d like to say it was the holidays, with all the rich food. I’d like to say it was my wife and my move, which sent me into a tale spin of eating at fast food places several times a week.

I’d like to say all of this, and any other excuse I can think of, but the truth is (and this is what I said a couple of blogs ago) I am responsible for my choices. I chose to fail.

So along with many of my friends (those who have mentioned it to me privately and those who have FB posted) I will endeavor to do better in the New Year.

Forgetting what is behind, and not letting past failures hold me back with the guilt and frustration they bring, I will try to learn from my mistakes and do better in the present and in the future.

If anyone has any suggestions, I would gladly listen.

For those who told me they were seeking to lose weight, I will continue to lift you up in prayer.


For those who said they’d pray for me, PLEASE KEEP PRAYING!

For those who have succeeded in maintaining weight loss, you have my new found respect. God bless you!
