I am feeling very wimpy tonight, and I feel like a major loser. I preach and teach constantly on the importance of the character trait of self-control in living the Christian life successfully. I have gone from 212 lbs to 230 lbs in 50 days, 18 lbs in 50 days, I can’t believe it. It started on our trip to Mexico to go fishing. The fishing was OK but the food was amazing, and of course because I had paid for the trip I certainly wanted to eat well. Then my birthday was on the 27th, and I had about three parties, and you know, you only have a birthday once a year, so I went off of my ”no sugar” commitment and had a bowl of ice cream. That was the first sugar I had eaten in over a year, and as long as I blew it, let’s have two bowls! Then as the pounds started adding up I would say every morning when I got on the scales, I am going to get serious tomorrow and lose some weight, and I repeated it again this morning, but tomorrow is Thanksgiving. What am I going to do!?
I don’t know about others, but I do so much better in self-control when I am up, positive, on a roll, with some momentum, some wind at my back. So what am I going to do? I am going to start on my diet on December 1st. Cool! Five more days of pigging out! No telling what I will weigh in five more days!
