A thought

If you want big changes,
You have to make big changes.

I'm currently reading a book that is really making me think. I'm not going to get the results I want by doing more of the same.

Week Seven: + 2.8 [+0.8]

But I'm working on making progress instead of excuses. In the last week: I was under my calorie goal 4 times, I drank 64 ounces of water or more 6 times, and I exercised 4 times.

It arrived!!!

And it is in the biggest box I have ever witnessed UPS deliver.

I'm pretty ecstatic!
Maybe we'll even get it put together before and after Zumba tonight!

Week Six: - 0.6 [-2.0]

Oh it feels good to use a minus not a plus sign. We ordered our exercise bike last night. Crazy excited for its arrival on Monday. Crazy excited!!!

Change is hard. But it's healthy. I recently finished a book for the second time (The Emperor's Soul by Brandon Sanderson) and one quote really stuck out to me.

It's not imitating anything; it has become a better version of itself.

Sometimes I wonder, "am I doing this to be like _____ or _____ ? Or am I on this health journey to be a better version of myself?" On the days I'm focused on being the best me, I'm happier, less stressed. On the days the focus is imitating others, I can't be successful so I feel like an utter failure. 

Thankfully, there is One that I should focus on imitating. 
But the beauty of imitating Him is that in the process, I'll become my best version

Week Five: + 0.4 [-1.4]

Don't be discouraged. My bad choices of January may be catching up to me but good choices have been happening lately. Take a deep breath. You got this. 
Plus guess who's getting an awesome exercise bike in hopefully the next week? Me! I'm so excited to finally be able to bike away my pounds!

Be a convert.

"There is a difference between receiving a testimony of truth and being truly converted."

As we read through this message for Family Home Evening tonight, what I heard was, "There is a difference between knowing how to be healthy and being truly healthy."

As a dear friend said, 

I need to truly be converted. Instead of doing it, and resenting every minute of it ...

Amen. And amen.
