Let Them Eat Cake!

The Sackrider Slimdown is a family effort to loose weight.  It’s about support from your family to push you to work out, eat right, and get the weight off.  Saturday, the Sackrider Slimdown wasn’t losing weight… instead we lost ground.  We all, Stephanie, Dianne, Dad, and I were at a birthday party for a church member and not one of us said – “DON’T EAT THAT CAKE!”  No, we all ate cake.  I had more than one piece.

The real question is what are we going to do to correct it.  We have to hold each other accountable to stay focused on the goal.  It’s been said, “Nothing tastes as good as being thin feels“.  Doesn’t that sound awesome!  The problem is being thin doesn’t taste like cake. :)  I know that the only way I’m going to lose this weight is through focus.  The Bible says in Habakkuk 2:2:

Then the LORD replied:
       “Write down the revelation
       and make it plain on tablets
       so that a herald may run with it.

The function of this blog is to help me stay focused and accountable to my goals (bet you didn’t know that).  By writing down my goals, I make them clear and measureable so that I can run with them.  I can check my progress; record my successes and my failures.  I’m going to loose this weight.  I’m going to do as much as possible to help my wife and parents loose their excess weight.  — NO MORE CAKE, NO MORE CAKE, com’on say it with me — NO MORE CAKE, NO MORE CAKE…

    I just ate 3 chocolate chip cookies for breakfast. Yes, I am ashamed. I am at work & neglected to eat breakfast. Oh well, tomorrow is another day. Tommy & I are starting a cleanse this week. We’ll let you know how it goes! No sugar!!!
