I’m sore. I’m tired. I’ve not lost a pound in the last week. I WOULD be frustrated, except for the fact that I KNOW that I’m doing the right things for my body, my health, and my future. Losing 16 pounds is a BIG deal (even if some of it is water weight) and my body is “scared to death”. I will not stop. I will move forward. I WILL BE a healthy person with a healthy body and a healthy future. Today was one of those “breakthrough” days for me. I got out of bed, saw my wife and the kids off to school, went to work for a bit and got some things organized, and then headed to the gym. My body was SCREAMING, “NO! NO! NO!”. I refused to listen to the negative, and I focused on the future. And, I had my best workout so far. Heck, I hit the elliptical for THIRTY minutes. Thanks for the comments and the support!
