What a shock – I am still in shock – today as I went to purchase new jeans! When I started the Daniel Plan on Jan 1, I was size 42 waist – Relaxed Cut (for fat people). I have given those pants away AND given away my size 40 pants, which I had in storage (previous photo posts on Facebook at The Daniel Plan). I have been in my size 38 jeans for a week or two and went to purchase some for an upcoming trip – and bought size 36 REGULAR cut! Praise God for the Daniel Plan!
On June 1st, 2010 I began a journey to lose 50 pounds in 50 weeks. I struggled throughout the summer, fall and into the holidays only losing 18 pounds – I was way behind in my weight loss and discouraged again over my inability to get off the excess weight.
While we have learned together as church, I have watched as the weigh has fallen off – to date I have lost close to 40 pounds in the first 4 months of the New Year! I am close to 60 pounds of weight loss since June 1st, 2010!
Among the amazing results of this new lifestyle (its not a diet) I have noticed:
- Increased energy
- Sleeping through the night (Had bouts of insomnia before)
- Snoring stopped (Melodee, my wife, loves this one!)
- No more use of antacids (used to pop these at night like candy)
- Running half of my 4 mile daily exercise course now
- Greater clarity of mind
- New clothes (as mentioned above)
- Mood swings have disappeared
- Excited about God’s dream for my life for this Decade of Destiny and beyond!
I highly recommend that you check out The Daniel Plan (Website link) – you can start any time. (You will hear a LOT about this next year! Why not get a jump on others and demonstrate your Eagle Leadership again?)
