For those who have been following the "more personal" aspects of this blogg, they know I was trying to lose some weight through "standard" dieting methods.
I gave up on that about 2 weeks into it and returned to my deep fried extra fat please, eating habits.
Then something happened. At church one night, there was a collective challenge issued among the 30-somethings. Who could lose the most weight in a 6-week time period. A light switch flipped in my mind... "I can win this."
You see, I lost 35 pounds in a two-month period on the Atkins diet back in 2002. If I could do it then, I certainly can do it now, right?
My mind was made up. I was determined to win. If you are not "in it to win it," then why play at all.
It has been 4 weeks today -- and I have lost a total of 23 pounds with two weeks to go.
The others in the contest have given up. But I will stick to it until the end. I just hope when I return to a life of carbohydrates, that I can keep the weight off.
May the Blog Be With You.
