Persistence is the twin sister of excellence. One is a matter of quality, the other, a matter of time. I have achieved both in the past 2 months with a lifestyle change. I have come from a father worried about the longevity of his life to someone that knows He will be successful in dropping the weight that has figuratively as well as literally held him back in recent years. I work out daily and watch what I eat. I also find myself wondering how could I be sticking to this as easily as I am right now, and yet found it so hard in the past, either way I am very pleased with My results so far.
I did have a bit of a rough day, I was hungry all day and had stomach pains. I can't explain why or how that happened but it was to the point that I was just sitting on the couch feeling like "just give me a pizza" . of course I resisted. but I did want a Bacon pizza badly.
I lost a total of 8lbs this week bringing me down to 483 lbs total. you could say that I am overwhelmingly happy with what the scale had to say to me this morning. I could not be happier with this weeks drop.
