I Cortinthians 6:19-20 "What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's."

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!!

Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."

Glad your feeling better and Mr. Flu is all gone!

Love seeing the pictures, you have beautiful red hair, love it!!

Sis. Julie said...

sis. tori....My hair looks red to you? It does have an auburn hue to it. I get that from my mom. My hair is actually medium brown with the auburn tint to it.

Thank you so much for your encouraging words. You are so sweet!! I'm glad it is noticeable that I've lost as much as I have....it doesn't look like it to me too much. Not that it really matters. I do feel better...so I definitely like that.

Hey Julie,
I was just wondering how the wight loss is coming along.
Missing your posts too! °Ü°

Sis. Julie said...

sis. tori....I haven't posted yet this week because I'm down with female issues right now. This month is a rough one so I haven't felt real good. I'll be posting hopefully later on today.

We are also preparing to move so posts are going to be a bit fewer due to me packing. We move on the 29th. That doesn't leave much time to get this house packed up and ready to go. I'm sorry I've not posted. Check back later today and there should be an update.

Thank you for checking on me. That means so much to know that I'm missed!! Love you!

Wow, your new photo looks great. I didn't realize how much skinner you look now. (I guess since I see you all the time, I don't tend to notice). Congratulations on all the weight you've lost!!

Love you,

Sis. Julie said...

jess...thank you so much!! I know it is harder to notice when someone sees me all the time. I notice in the way my clothes fit and that is the only way I can tell. To me I look just as heavy.

I just wish I could get to my first goal!!

Love you!!
