Well, I'm about to head out to Charlotte NC for two days of meetings where I will have no control over the food that's put before me--morning, noon, and night! So this is a new kind of test and I frankly don't know how I'll do. I pray that the L... Read more

First Week of Plateau

Sunday, April 19, 2009      2 comments

I've been with Spark People for a month now, and this is the first week I've not lost any weight. Over the previous three I had lost 10 lbs so perhaps my body needed a break! I've eaten the same, exercised the same, etc. so I don't know what's h... Read more

I'm traveling to CA in mid-May and one thing I plan to do while there is take a long bike ride--110 miles in one day. So each week I do an endurance ride, among other things, to get my body and mind ready for the big day. Today I'm scheduled to ... Read more

YES! I'm no Longer "Obese"

Thanks be to God, I just recalculated my BMI for the first time in three weeks (when I started Spark People) and, having lost 10 lbs, I've eaked out of the "obese" category! A score of 30.0+ is over the line, 29.9- is under, and I'm at 29.7! Awf... Read more

Today is normally my one day off per week, but this week I have to do my taxes--wah, wah, wah. Yeah, I'm a tax procrastinator, but I'll git 'er dun! Well, at least I can look forward to an amazingly healthy breakfast burrito and some fresh... Read more

Christ Died for our Sin--Which Includes Indulgence

Friday, April 10, 2009      1 comments

At the end of the day, the reason I'm so overweight (about 50 lbs) is that I'm a self-centered, indulgent person. If I had simply obeyed the Lord and treated my body as he would have me, I would have enjoyed food very much--after all He gave it ... Read more

What a Great Ride!

Wednesday, April 08, 2009      0 comments

Well my 55-miler went very well yesterday. Came in just slightly under 15.0 mph due to a stiff head wind over the last 11 miles. More importantly, my body felt good and strong just about the whole way through. I must admit though, that I couldn'... Read more
