That means I would have to average 4 pounds a month. Well, so far that has not happened. The first two months were right on schedule. The last two have been an absolute grind with very slow weight loss.
As of today, I am down to 213. That means I need to lose 8 pounds in one month to reach my commitment. I can tell you right now, that is impossible for me alone.
Sure, I could probably do something radical like stop eating or some liquid diet. But that is not going to happen. I will continue to do what I know is right in the quantity of food I eat. I will continue striving to control what I eat rather than letting the food control me.
My hope and prayer is that it will happen. However, if it does, it will be all God. I will do my part, but, I have been doing it for the past two months with not much loss. So if 8 pounds come off in this one month, it will be ALL God’s glory, not mine.
