{ A Good Start }

As part of my weight loss regimen, I am a member of my local TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) chapter, a support group of other men and women on my same path.  Weigh-ins are on Thursday nights and tonight, after my first full week back on program eating plant based I am down 9.2 pounds!  Woohoo!! 

I know that every week won't be that big of a number, but I am happy for this jump start because it makes me feel GOOD.

The folks at TOPS asked me what my secret was this week.  My answer:  I just got back to what I know works.  I have come to the conclusion that losing weight is easy for me, but it's my mind that makes it hard.  

I heard somewhere that weight loss isn't about perfection - but about the process of embracing my own imperfections.  I need to learn to be patient with myself and my body.  I know that it will take time for it to respond to the healthy changes I am making.

But this week was a good start.

Until next time, friends,
