A week now, I think I got the two pounds needed barely. But I am hopeful that I will have a better week. I had some moments that I overeat a bit. But overall, I was in control and my energy levels have been high. I have logged my food everyday. I will change my routine a bit and include two days of fasting next week. Monday and Thursday, I will only have less than 500 calories for the entire day. I feel excited for what the next 19 weeks can bring.

I watched Gleason, the movie last night. It is inspiring to see his struggles, his wife's struggles and how they cope with them. I would like to do more with my body, my life and be an inspiration for my kids. I appreciate them in my life and would like to pass on the best qualities I can to them. I would be my own coach and friend to overcome this big challenge.

I am welcome to any Sparkfriend to join me on this journey as well.

Two days now, so far so good. The most difficult part for me is the late night snack. I need to overcome the habits of late night eating. Keep it up!

I have been always overweight in my 41 years of life. I actually don't mind being overweight and typically keep myself active by jogging on the weekends and walking whenever I can. However, it is about time for midlife crisis and I don't like my identity being mediocre. I would like to give my future self a gift and give my two daughters a gift and give me wife of 17 years a gift: a better me, a fitter me and a stronger me. It is a challenge for me. I want to win this battle. I want to be better. I would like to claim this personal victory when I am old and telling stories to my grandchildren.

Although I never care about other people's thoughts, I know being overweight/obese is often seen as lazy, unattractive, and disadvantageous. I honestly never cared much. But I want to use those negative energy as my fuel. I want to show the world myself-discipline and determination.

I am responsible for my weight and I am capable of change my body by listening to my body and caring my body. Instead of forcing my body to eat as my mind dictates, I would like to follow my instincts and responses from my body.

There is going to be up and downs. I am going to be persistent and succeed.
