John’s Wellness Journey Week 11 – Weigh-In

Adios’ Week 11!!!!!

Although I gained some weight this week, at least I now know why. I should start seeing some more positive results at weigh-in. Right now, physically, I feel pretty good. This is a mental game that you just need to fight through every day. It’s not easy but I have the best support staff to help me. I am doing all of the things necessary to achieve success, but I know it’s a long fight. I am optimistic that good things will come my way. I have been to the gym 5 days a week and also working on my cardio after I get home. I remember sitting in my living room watching my neighbors walking their dog everyday thinking that I should be out there joining them and now I am. The whole year of 2012 has been dedicated to improving my life and getting rid of the negative and I have done that so far. I am continuing to focus on logging my calories, drinking plenty of water, and staying on track by working out as much as I can every day.

This is a lifestyle change and I accept it will take time to achieve. I can do it. I will do it. Staying focused on the goal.

    You are right John. Losing weight takes time and so does lifestyle changes. You are encouraging me to start my own exercise regime at home. I am going to do 30 minutes of an exercise routine at night and 30 minutes in the morning. It’s better than doing nothing! Even more walking too. Only losers quit! Hey, get the pun :0) Keep up the great work!

    I am going to officially apologize to everybody following for the poor excuse of a week I put together last week. I have a lot of work to do to get to my goal weight. I am gutting my food plan and going 110% with the Sarah’s dietary and nutrition suggestions. I failed Sarah this week and myself. I am thinking like a fat person. I am a fat person and I hate it. If I am going to change the person I was yesterday, I need to start today. I am frustrated and I know what needs to be done. It is easy to throw excuses out there but I have none. I will just believe them if I say them. The journey is a hard one and one that I need to take alone sometimes.

    John, it sounds like Sarah is not about to give up on you. I have always fought the battle with my weight. I wish I had the metabolism of your 9 year old son LOL!! If you fall off the horse what do you do? You get right back on! Unless you are Christopher Reeves, then you might have a problem :0) I know you won’t give up the ship…just listen to Sarah and let friends and family help. They will if you ask them to :0)

    Today I had a good workout with a little extra pep in my step. It is so wonderful when co-workers that you don’t see very often provide compliments and positive feedback. I appreciate her struggles and successes and have the utmost respect for her to share he emotions and feedback to me. I so needed that today. THANKS A.D.
