021309 WeightAfter my fasted cardio run I weighed in this morning at 178.8lbs. By eating 1000 calories below my calorie maintenance level I should lose 2lbs a week or about 9lbs a month.

On January 16th I was 185lbs so by the 16th of February I was wanted to be at 175 but it doesn’t look like I will make it.

Today I extended the distance of my run from 5.4km to 6km. It took me 47 minutes to run the 6km. I have 6.5km marked off which I plan to extend my run to in another two weeks.

I was reminded this morning in Colossians 3:2 to “Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth.” While I feel like I have been spending a lot of time on my diet and fitness plan, this is more than just an issue of bodily exercise which “is only of little profit” (1Tim 4:8 NASB).

For me this has to do with the fruit of temperance and moderation, keeping the temple of God (1Cor 3:17) holy, and being an example to the believers and to the world.

I think losing 40lbs will be the easy part. Where I am going to need the grace of God is after I loose the weight to eat with temperance so that I will not just gain it all back in a year or two.

I am heading out now to bike 20km. See you a bit later.
