January 15, 2011 Weigh In #3

Well, its weigh in day!  I am thrilled I lost, but not thrilled that it was so little, but trying to remind myself that EVERY pound should be celebrated and that is a bit more off my heart, lungs and body.  This week I lost

2 Pounds!
Two Pounds gone for good!  That is what I am telling myself.  Not was much as last week but still heading down.  With that 2 lb loss It puts making one of my goals!

Loss for the week: -2 lbs
Starting weight: 345 lbs
Current weight: 334.4 lbs

Total loss to date: 10.6 lbs
BMI 54  
Pounds left to loose: 189.4 lbs

I am not feeling well at all today.  I feel very bloated and have soooo much congestion in my head today :( YUCK.  Also have some swelling in my legs and feet and they are hurting more today.  Trying to stay motivated and now my goal is to do better next week.  

Had an awesome Night last night meeting my friend Charlotte and her family for the first time!  Charlotte is another adoptive mama who just so happens to have lost over 200 lbs in 2 years on Weight Watchers and exercise!  She came down to encourage me and to bring me some clothes.  Most are too small but it is so neat to think I may get down into them soon.  There are mutlple sizes for me to have a few things as I SHRINK in Jesus Name! :)  It was a fun evening of being treated to supper at Cracker Barrel and then swimming at their hotel! :)  My family and I had a blast! :)  She is an amazing lady with an awesome family :)  She was such an encouragment to me!  It is wonderful to meet someone face to face who has done this! :)  And she is still working at it :)  

Little by little God is helping my caterpillar self get ready to become the buttefly inside and out.  Today I begin a Christian Education Class at our Church that I pray will help me in becoming a beautiful butterfly for the Lord, my family, and those who my life may touch in years to come.  I can't wait to get to worship this morning.  I really need that today! Happy Sunday All!

Even if it's not the loss you wanted, you are still making the right changes toward living a healthier lifestyle, changes that will serve you well for a lifetime. And hey, you're right - it's still a loss!

Glad you got to meet Charlotte. It sounds like God is really orchestrating the details to make sure you stay on the right track. Awesome!

Two pounds a week is perfect in fact! Slow and steady wins the race!!

2 pounds is great!!
Take 2 pounds of butter out of the fridge, set it on the counter and just look at it just to have a visual. That is actually a good amount of weight that you are no longer carrying around and that has to feel great!

So happy that you were able to meet Charlotte and had such a great time hanging out with each other. I hope that you aren't too hard on yourself about not losing as much as you wanted. You will! It takes time... You are an amazing woman who is making some wonderful changes to better yourself. I am so proud of you! Keep your head up and your faith strong :)
Kick it!
