OK, I'm getting close - not to my goal, that's still a long way off, but to the magic number where my willpower has always stopped, and the numbers on the scale started to climb again. It seems I can drop the first few pounds (22 so far in the last six weeks) fairly easily, but once I get to 240 lbs. something strange happens. I haven't been below that in at least a decade, but this is also the first time I have used a group approach to my journey. I am determined that this time around things will be different.
One thing I would ask from those who read my blog entry - I notice a scripture references in a goodly number of postings, so I can only assume that there are people of faith out there. Will you pray for me? As a priest in the Anglican Church, I believe in the power of prayer, and I have often preached that when our own strength is insufficient for the task, we have access to a strength beyond measure.
OK, enough preaching, I will report back when I see the underside of 240.
