When You Want To Quit

When You Want To Quit

Today, I wanted to quit this weight loss stuff.  I wanted to kick back, eat a Snicker’s Blizzard from Dairy Queen and drink an entire 2 liter Coke.  But I didn’t.

Instead, I thought about the reasons why I’m trying to lose weight.

I want to be a healthy person.  I want to live a better life.  I want to be a better husband to Kathy.  I want to be a better steward of the body that God has given me.  I want to reduce my chances of contracting diabetes later on in life.

But, even more…  I didn’t want to be the fat guy.

I still want to quit sometimes, but thinking about these things helped me stick with the plan.

Here’s what I’ve eaten today:

1 Snackwell’s Protein Meal Bar

1 Middle Eastern Salad

2 Servings of Chicken Swarma

1 Serving of Pita Bread with hummus

1 Chick Fil-A Sandwich

1 Slice of Whole Wheat Toast with Apple Butter

2 Scrambled Eggs

85 oz of water

Supplements I’ve taken today:           

1 Fish Oil Pill

1 Multi Vitamin

Exercise:

30 minutes of walking
