Monday Came

monday cameI want to take a moment and tell you that my Monday Came. What? Yes that’s correct. So many times in the past I would say “I got this” “Oh this is it, this will be the time I get it right” but all these many times were just false hope. There were what I Like to call “Kicks

I hate “Kicks”

I know for everyone that I have spoken with that has lost a significant amount of weight has had their “Monday Came”

So I’m sure you’re all asking yourselves so why is this the time for him, why wont this be just like the rest?

I finally believe in myself. More importantly, I finally believe I can do this. This stems from my recent “Changing my thought process” post.

I’m forming new habits and wants that I’ve never had before. Instead of thinking that this was always going to be handed to me somehow. Now I believe that I can carry out small goals that will amount to big ones down the road.

I’ve always looked at the number and getting to a certain point as far as the number. My mindset was never trying to meet small goals and move on from there.

I’m not proving this to anyone out there but myself. However, for therapeutic reasons and I have to admit some self gloat, I want to share it with all of you at the same time.

I’ve had a lot of Monday’s but sooner or later my Monday had to come. I used to think like a pool player and all it got me was in trouble. Most pool players are thinking 3 shots ahead instead of focusing on the shot at hand. It’s not a way I want to live anymore. I used to only believe in some miracle type product (Beaumont diet, WW, Green Coffee Bean Extract, BodyByVi) that would get me thin, instead of looking in the mirror and realizing that the miracle is me.

This is my journey to prove to myself that I can beat these daemons that have shut me down from living.

Here’s to 2013. The year I really start to Live….below is the song for “Monday Came” My theme song for 2013.

is a professional health, weight loss & fitness blogger on a weight loss journey to lose over 300lbs on no sugar no grains.


  1. Love it, man! That idea makes so much sense to me. I know that one of the things that truly turned the page for me this time around was setting those smaller goals and reaching them, proving to myself that I could be successful instead of throwing myself in head first shooting for the top of the mountain on day 1. Failing in that situation always set me back to zero. Once I realized that this journey was about the little steps and not the marathon, I found a true sense of peace in myself. I wish you the same thing my friend!

  2. glad to see you embracing the small goals man

    • Thanks Will. It’s really helping. In small goals I mean just daily as well. I went from a 5K steps a day goal to 10K on my fitbit. These are things that I never thought I could do before. Like I wasn’t capable.

  3. Reading this is an answer to prayers I’ve said for you! I am drawing strength from it in my own journey. 🙂

    • Amber, thank you so much. That really means a lot to me. I seen on FB that you were a little stressed out that you were doing good and didn’t see the scale drop. Please, please, please stick with it. I’m sure you’ll see reslutls. I used to get upset and then quit on myself because I couldn’t understand why the scale wasnt rewarding me for my hard work. Body compesation is a pert of the journey as well. Remember that. We need to all get together again soon.

  4. “The miracle is me.” LOVE THAT! So true!

    You CAN do it, one step at a time! Good for you for making the thinking shift. 🙂

    Happy Monday!

  6. I just came across your blog yesterday and I’m really loving it. This post in particular resonates with me, only partly because I just wrote one quite similar yesterday! I think you might enjoy it if you want to check it out. I’d love to add you to my blog roll, if that’s OK with you. Best of luck to you. I’ll be following your progress while working on my own!
