May 3rd, 2017 No Such Thing

May 3rd, 2017 No Such Thing

I was up all night last night with weather coverage. Thankfully, Gayle Williams from our sister station across the hall stepped in and covered for me while I slept this morning. It wasn't long enough, but it got me through to a late afternoon nap.

My day has been wildly tilted. I've kept my food on plan and I've stayed connected with good support. This way, even a tilted day can be a good on-plan day. 

When I look at others who have weight loss and long-term weight maintenance/recovery, I see something that I hope to emulate and keep. Those people with long-term weight maintenance have ups and down, high stress and emotional times--they have tilted days too--but still, come what may--they maintain their plan of recovery. That's exciting to me because it means the ups and downs of life no longer dictate how this goes.

I spent many years being convinced that the success or failure of my weight loss and maintenance largely depended on things out of my control. The thought: Let's cross our fingers and toes and hope everything goes well so we can do this once and for all!! -- didn't seem absurd to me for those two decades above 500 pounds. But it does now.

People die every single day waiting for the perfect time to start. There's no such thing as the perfect time.

Right now is a perfect time.

I better get to bed.    

Today: I maintained the integrity of my maintenance calorie budget, I remained refined sugar-free, I exceeded my daily water goal, and I stayed well connected with good support.

  1. Sean, I'm sure your voice is a great comfort to those in your area of Oklahoma who are fearful of a tornado blowing them away. I know our local radio guy always serves as kind of a beacon in the storm for us, and although it involves way too much burning the midnight oil and staying up all night, it is much appreciated by those of us out here who count on people like you! Thanks!!


I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment. Thank you for your support!
