Keep on, Keepin on

Things have been slightly frustrating lately.  I've been doing what I think is pretty super well with eating right (I'm hitting my goal of about 1,800 calories per day) and I've been exercising well, but the weight is coming off so very slowly. I'm down about six pounds is all and I feel like I'm busing my can out there.

Jocelyn and Traci are ramping things up at the gym.  Two hours this morning -- it was quite the work out. 

We did have a great group discussion this week on the topic of 'change' with Marlene, one of the wonderful social workers here at Intermountain.  She's just got a great way to connect with groups and individuals.

Getting better

As fun as the Fourth was this year, I'm glad it's behind me.  The food made available on holidays are a killer for a weak-willed guy like me.  I'm glad Tuesday came -- I'm doing much better now.

I've been tracking my eating here and it's been going pretty well.

I think I'm down five lbs right now, but the belt seems to be getting a little looser.  Exercise has been great, too.  I'm glad to have many people working to support me through the process -- many of them volunteers.

I've just got to keep on keepin' on.
