I couldn't believe it when I stepped on the scale this morning and found I had lost. I really thought after eating what I ate yesterday and not drinking my water that I like to and usually drink that I would have gained. We were out of town going to two different churches in Chickamauga, Georgia. That is 2 1/2 hours from home. We ate at Pizza Hut for lunch and then had ice cream for supper (I was still so full from lunch that all I wanted was an ice cream cone). I only had (maybe) 24 ounces of water instead of my usual 68 ounces. But I stepped on the scale this morning and had lost another 0.5 lbs. I'm only 0.1 lbs. away from my 30 lb. goal. I'm so close now!! And when I hit that 30 lb. goal I'm going to have another update picture taken to share with you.
I hope y'all had a good week with positive results. If you didn't don't give up!! I've sure had my share of roller-coaster rides with my weight-loss lately. Thanks be to God I haven't given up. It really does help to have that original picture taken when I first started my journey. I have it on the side of my refrigerator where I see it each time I approach the fridge. And that picture is so hideous that I can't help but keep going. If you don't have an original picture of what you looked like at the start to remind you of what you need to be doing in your weight-loss and encouraging you to keep going...then take one now and put it on your fridge!! It really is a great incentive.
Don't forget to drink that water!!
