925 Days Left

In a perfect world, I would have woke up this morning skinny and healthy. Unfortunately, that is not how it works.  I did, however, wake up one gigantic step closer to meeting my goal.  I made it though day one and that, for me, it a feat itself.

For years food has been a high priority in my life.  At times, I might go as far as to say food has been a number one priority in my life.  I wouldn't say I love food more than my family, but I have put it ahead of them by letting it control my life and put me at risk of a heart attack. I need to stop letting food control me and let it become what it is intended to me...something needed to survive.

As I start day two, I have come to the realization, that there are always going to be temptations.  For instance, as I was driving to work this morning, I was behind a Krispe Kreme truck for the majority of my drive.  Two days ago, I would have stopped and picked up a dozen and probably would have eaten more than half of them myself.  Today, I did think about getting a dozen and then realized that my health and family are too important.


  1. The trick and the resulting victory comes when you go ahead and think it through and then don't act on what your impulsive self wants to do.

  2. I've put food before my loved ones many a time. Good for you to put your health and family first.
