Round Two

I've been kinda quiet about my weight loss efforts. Truthfully, I've been struggling a bit. I was so determined through the holidays and I lost - 66 pounds since November 5, 2009. 25 weeks.

I don't know how or when or why the struggle started, but it's been going on for a few weeks. I haven't really lost anything the last 3 weeks. I start each day pretending that I want to be on plan. Sometime during the day, I find a way to fall apart. I get stressed. I don't plan. I eat dumb things. It's self sabotage.

And while all this is going on within me, people are noticing my weight loss and complimenting me on my efforts. I'm noticing that my stomach is no where near as close to the steering wheel in my car as it used to be. I'm getting rid of my stretchy pants. I feel like a big fat FRAUD.

I was out of town for a class today. I took my Medifast food with me, but throughout the day I ate what came my way. And thankfully this nonsense is out of my system. I'm feeling that fire within me again.

I'm ready to start Round 2. I'll be 100% on plan restarting tomorrow. I'm excited to see what I can do in the next 25 weeks. I'm trying different. I'll tell you more about that soon.

So friends... I ask for your renewed prayers and accountability. I don't want to eat that tortilla chip or taste whatever at the next potluck or... well you get it. Health tastes better.


  1. Praying too! You are an inspiration!

  2. I know you can! Jesus IS your strength!

  3. Go, Robin, go! Imagine all of the people who care about you cheering you on. (If it helps, you can imagine us with pom-poms doing cheerleader routines...)
