For the first time in this journey I have read thru the comments that have been on the Firelands In Training website that is connected to the Sandusky Register and the Norwalk Reflector.
I know I could’ve done better, BUT I do NOT appreciate someone saying that I took an opportunity away from someone else.
This was an opportunity given to me, and I am grateful for it. I may not have succeeded in losing weight, but I have succeeded in learning how to live a healthier lifestyle.
That being said: It has been an OK week.
Everyone knows the bug that you can’t quite shake, well I have it. Yes I know that some will think this is yet another excuse. You don't know what I'm going through, nor what I have been through.
I have not worked out this past week.
Yes I regret that, and I have realized that when I don’t work out, I don’t feel as good about myself.
My food choices are constantly getting better.
I am continuing to make better choices; most of the time I am choosing vegetables in place of starches, such as potatoes.
I am working toward not having potatoes at all.
I am trying to eat more fresh fruit and vegetables like oranges and apples that haven’t been pre-sliced and packaged.
To the other contestants, keep up the wonderful work. You both are an inspiration.
