I know the title of this post sounds like I’m giving up but it’s not, let me explain.I have joined two monthly bets previous to this transformer and not won. That’s ok though, because even though I didn’t win I did better and lost weight. That’s winning to me.

Yoda of Star Wars, has a famous quote -“there is no try only do, “  this is my new mantra. Therefore I’m not “ trying” to lose weight anymore, I am now saying I will lose weight. I will do my best to track my calories, improve my exercise and stay focused. With all the help and encouragement I got during these few bets I have learned that I can win at losing. I can renew my mind and transform my habits. One small step at a time. And six months from now it will have been worth the effort, even if I don’t “win” the bet.
