I lost 4 pounds last week.

I proved to myself that if I provide the right focus I can be successful.

"But, John we always knew you could be successful!"

Thank you, I love you, I appreciate your support, affection and friendship............BUT.....
........ that and $1.69 buys me a diet Coke. What matters is what I believe I am capable of accomplishing. Sometimes, most times it means dealing with my past. It's dealing with the starts and stops, the injuries, the misconceptions.



It's dealing with the past and moving on. It was celebrating the 4 pound loss for part of Saturday morning and then focusing on the fact that I have a long road to travel.

I am proud. I am happy. I am motivated and I feel your love.

It's a new week and on Saturday morning I'll hop on the scale and grade my performance for the week.

It's a new day for all of us.

    Making peace with the past, forgiving, choosing to no longer carry the emotional baggage around with you so that you can be be free - huge, huge accomplishments! It's putting in the hard work, time, and dedication of syncing up our mind and body so that we can ultimately reach the goal of becoming the healthiest we can be that helps us in the long run...

I wish you much success on your journey!

    You'll be able to grade your performance this week long before you get on the scale. You know when you are being the most healthy you that you can be. And when you aren't.

    Way to go John! I lost a couple pounds this week and almost let myself slip into thoughts of...I have so far to go. I stopped myself right away and focused on what I did accomplish. I'm so glad to see you on the same path! We have to start somewhere.
