Last night I started watching the new season of “The Biggest Loser“. For those who don’t know, this is a reality TV show about people who want to lose weight. As I watching last night, I was very compelled to do something about my weight. Four years ago I had made the decision to lose some extra weight and I did. I lost 50 pounds! Unfortunately 4 years later I have gained it all back and most of it came back this past year. As a result of gaining back the weight I feel terrible all the time. I believe my blood pressure issues are definitely related to my weight gain. My back aches all the time and my energy levels are very low. I NEED to lose the extra pounds again!!
So, starting today I am committing myself to losing the weight. I know what I need to do because I have done it before. I need to cut down on my eating and I need to get more active. I am not a big New Year’s resolution type of guy but this year I am resolving to losing the weight. I know the benefits of being healthy and I want to enjoy them again. I want my children to have a positive example of a healthy lifestyle. I want to honour God by taking care of the body that He gave me!
Anyone out there want to join me in resolving to lose weight?
