Weigh In

It's amazing to think that Captain Mom and I began this journey back in March. When I started I never imagined that this process would really be about so much more than food. I knew I was an emotional eater, but I didn't know how much bondage that brought into my life. I am by no means saying that I've mastered that, but I feel like I've made progress, and I thank the Lord for that. It turns out that it really is better for me to share the burden with Him rather than my hips.

This week I exercised 4 times (maybe 5) and drank my water...yay. I was glad to get my body moving because I know for me that is going to be KEY in keeping this weight off. Plus, I want to run the half marathon in January again and I'd like to start my training in September feeling like my body is ready to take on that challenge.

This week I am going to:

#1 - Keep the exercise up. It's not habit yet, so I'm keeping this goal again.

#2 - Go one night without dessert. Yes, I eat dessert every night. I want to begin breaking that habit, but it will have to be a slow withdrawl, because I don't want to go into a coma.

I am so proud of the work you are doing. The weight loss is great...and you are looking fab! But so much more importantly is how you are growing in the Lord.
Keep striving for more, friend!
