I Got A Lot Of Exercise

We got moved!!! And I got my computer back!! We are back on dsl so I'm back to posting again and more importantly....I'm going to be able to visit everyone's blogs again. WOOHOO!!

This (as I'm sure you can imagine) has been a rather busy week. I had to be busy all week long last week packing up for our move. We moved yesterday and are now in our new house. It is beautiful!! God has certainly been good to us!! We are so unworthy!!

Our new house has stairs in it (which I didn't necessarily want) but God provided it and I know He has a reason (more than likely for exercise for us less than healthy folk...LOL!!). I have made many trips up and down those stairs already and no doubt will make many more.

Now for my update on my weight-loss. I lost 3.8 lbs!!! I drank my water like I was supposed to and I didn't eat like I should have....but the exercise paid off. My legs feel more tone now and I worked muscles that I know I haven't worked in a while or I wouldn't be as sore as I am. I pray y'all had a great week and had great results. If you didn't....so what!! Don't you dare give up!! We can't ladies!! God wants us to be healthier...and that won't happen without us doing our part. Drink your water....watch what you eat and how much you eat. And don't forget to exercise. Even if it is a little....that is better than nothing.

I've Made My First Goal!!!

I want to give the Lord all the glory for making this goal. I lost 1.2 lbs to take me over the 20 lbs total lost this far. I had to say WOOOHOOOO!!! It has taken forever to get to this first goal. But I'm so excited to be to this point. My next goal is another 10 lbs.

I started at 220.6 lbs and am now at 200.0 lbs.

As a side note please forgive my unfaithfulness in posting ealier this week. We had severe storms and tornadoes come through the Atlanta, GA area on Friday and Saturday and our computer got zapped through the phone line. Our dsl modem got zapped and we had to replace it. Unfortunately the lightening also got the phone jack in the computer so we cannot use that computer. I am currently using my husband's computer which is a much older model and is not equipped for dsl...so I'm having to use dial-up. We are also in the process of packing up our house to get ready for our move on March 29th. I may not be posting much until we get moved. So please just bear with me. I'll check blogs when I get back on dsl once we move. (Provided we get our computer back from the man that has been working on it for a while....if we do then I might be up sooner.)

The Results Aren't Always What We Want

I wasn't able to go to church again yesterday due to female issues keeping me from being able to but I was able to at least weigh. I gained .2 lbs this week but that is okay. I usually gain "the week before" so I was expecting a gain. And it is usually more than what I got for results this week...so I was pleased.

Things sure are coming a lot slower this time. But I'm thankful for the results the Lord has let me have so far. It seems my first goal is going to never come but I know it will if I continue to pray and lean on the Lord for the results I get. He is certainly helping me eat better. And I thank Him for that. It sure isn't me!!

I pray y'all had good results as well. And even if it wasn't the results you were wanting or hoping for....be thankful that it wasn't more than it was if you gained. Just keep going and don't give up. Trust in Him for it all!!

Picture Update

March 2008 (20 lbs. lost)

I'm not going to be at our church this morning for the weigh-in so I weighed-in on my own. I lost .7 lbs. this week. Woohoo!! With me being sick this past week and taking so much medicine that I don't know how many points it had and sucking on cough drops that I know had points to them....I'm really shocked that I lost at all. But I give God the glory for it. He helped me to keep drinking my water this week. I really do think that helped me not to get as sick as I could have and it certainly helped flush out some of those calories I was taking in and also some of those (if not most of them) germs I had in my body. Now I just have that wicked cough and congestion that sits in my throat. All I can say is I'm on the mend....just in time to be down with female at the end of this week. Yippee!! (said with sarcasm!!)

I had Kristina take an updated picture of me so you could see what LITTLE progress is being made. I'm .4 lbs. away from my first goal of 20 lbs. lost. I have been waiting a long time to see that 20 lb. loss. Things are taking much longer this time around. But I'm trying to be patient and not get discouraged. I know it is hard to tell any difference in the two pictures. Especially since one is a bit more of a close-up and the other one isn't. I'll know better when Kristina takes my next updated picture. I notice the loss in my clothes mostly and in my face. My rings also fit looser which is nice too. I tend to wear my clothes a bit loose so I don't show off my form...and that makes it hard to show you any changes as well....but hopefully you can see a LITTLE bit of a difference.

I pray you all have had a good week with your drinking of your water and your exercise and your eating healthier. You have all been in my prayers!! I love you all!!
