Go big or go home!

Day 2 / Week 4

In the past, my blog entries have been long and wordy. I was disappointed in my performance last week, so it is time to adjust. Today's post will be short and represents a summary of my thoughts this morning. The following is from my journal:

Last night's weigh-in disappointing (1.8lbs); Determined to work hard and increase intensity; This week's weight loss goal is 4 lbs.Solid workout today; Hungry afterward; Successfully completed 3 reps of 30-sec full planks and a 1-minute wall squat! Good job today!

This is my commitment:


Colossians 3:23-24Amplified Bible (AMP)

23 Whatever you do [whatever your task may be], work from the soul [that is, put in your very best effort], as [something done] for the Lord and not for men, 24 knowing [with all certainty] that it is from the Lord [not from men] that you will receive the inheritance which is your [greatest] reward.

  1. I know it's frustrating to think you are going to lose a bunch of weight and then find out it's just a fraction of that. Keep pushing through Garvin. You are doing a lot more than losing weight, you are morphing into the Gavin that God intends. Maybe last week was the larva stage.

  2. Rick always says average of 2 weeks weigh ins is a better marker of your success, than 1 specific week.
    In 3 weeks you'very lost 14 pounds and 4.71% of your body weight is gone!!
    You are doing awesomw. Let the number from this week push you harder, while you celebrate in the total success for your first 3 weeks! You can do this!

  3. 1.8 pounds should not be disappointing. 6 months ago would you have lost 1.8 pounds in a week? Like Rick said this morning working out is not everything to losing weight. I heard from several alumni over the past week that 80% of the loss is because of nutrition. I am here for you and will be a rock if you need one. I hope you can lean on me and just the opposite if the need comes. Keep up the good work. You have completed so many accomplishments. Remember there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
