Delayed But Not Defeated

Tuesday, June 16, 2009

At the beginning of the year, I made a plan to be at my goal weight of 165 lbs by my birthday. I started out good until my grandfather passed away in the beginning of March. I have gotten myself back on track, lived my life and enjoyed all the moments to this present day. Though I know that I'm not going to make my goal, I'm still posting my progress on my page and signature for two reasons.

The first is accountability. I made a promise to continue this through the end. Although I believed that I "could" reach my goal, there was no doubt that I would not stop trying. I've truly been working it out and eating right since I returned from my two weeks of vacation. I have now lost more than 5 lbs, and I'm making my way back to the 180s. Though some could have been embarrassed because they were so far from the mark, I cannot be. I have still made progress. I have already lost more than 15 lbs this year, and I'm not done yet. That's more than I lost year.

The second reason for continuing to post is that I know in time that I will still reach my goal. I may be losing my weight slowly, but this is the healthiest that I have ever been in my life. The scale is the least indicative factor of my success. I cannot stop now. This tortoise will finish the race. I will be at 155 lbs on March 15, 2010. Yes, I said 155...lol After my birthday, I will post my updated schedule. emoticon emoticon
