Our first week of meetings we were to have our individual pictures taken. The first meeting I didn't get to make due to having my husband at the hospital in the ER. So the second week was our starting day. Sis. Karen took our pictures so we could have them to look at and be encouraged to continue with this journey to a thinner and healthier us. We got our pictures yesterday and were told to put them on our refrigerator so every time we go to the refrigerator we would see how we look or looked and be encouraged to keep going.
This is my picture. All I could say was "Oh boy!!!" I knew I was tubby (oh...let's face it...that is being too nice) I mean fat but I didn't realize how fat. Doesn't the camera add something like 10 lbs....or is it 50 lbs.? Oh...I know it doesn't really...but we all were telling ourselves it does yesterday at our meeting. LOL!!
Anyway....I wanted to post my picture for my benefit and as a testimony to God of when our first year is up that God helped me and allowed me to get to where I will be in one year. We will be taking new pictures after our one year so I'll be able to post a before and an after picture to hopefully see and show that with Christ ALL things are possible...even weight-loss and a totally new way of eating. I thank the Lord for giving Sis. Karen this idea and I look forward to seeing what God is going to help us do in this next year!!
