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!!
