Well, I am going going public with this. The following is tip #4 from my Weight Loss Tips post.
4. Go public, ask for prayer, blog about it, tell friends and family what your goals are so they can provide you support.
Public commitment brings accountability.
So I am overweight. I am 5′ – 7″, my waist is 43″, and I weigh 185 (down 5 pounds this month already). My highest weight was 205 about 10 to 15 years ago, which was shortly after I got married. Susan’s food was so so good!
The Ideal Weight Body Calculator tells me for a 5′ – 7″, 51-year-old male adult, the medical recommendation is 121lbs to 160lbs. I am of medium build, so I think my weight should be 150 to 155lb.
So please pray for me and keep me accountable to this commitment. I am not making my goals public at this point as I need make sure they are realistic. Please feel free to post comments of encouragement. Click on the “Add Comments” button at the top left of the posts and it will give you a form to post in.
I feel like I lack temperance in eating, plus I want to be a better steward of my body which is the temple of God. The plan is to post my waist and weight measurements regularly, and post the meals that I am eating and give some feedback on how my program goes.
