My Usual Time Of Month

Well....I gained this week...but I usually do at this time of the month. I didn't gain as much as I sometimes do though...so that is good. I expected to see the numbers up. But you know what that means....it means next week should be a loss!! Yippee!! I hope that will be the case.

I have had my new goal picture taken but Kristina still needs to get it loaded onto the computer. Once she does that I will post it. You may not notice much of a change from the last one. I don't...but then again...maybe you will.

I pray you all have had a great week with positive results. I'm not too disappointed about my results since I expected the ones I got. In fact....I'm very pleased since it could have been much worse. I know you all know what I'm talking about. Have a great rest of the week and drink that water!!! In fact....I need to go fill my jug!! I've not done that yet today. Love you all and praying for you too!!

I Finally Made It!!!

I am sitting here not believing it. I got on the scales this morning and I saw the results and had to do a double-take. But when I did the double-take I saw the same thing. I saw 190.3 and wanted to shout but everyone else was still in bed. I finally made it to my 30 lb. goal. Do you know what that means? It means there is an update picture coming!!! So check back...I'll be trying to get Kristina to take that today (providing her batteries for her camera are charged up).

I have to say I was shocked to see what I saw on the scale. I feel so bloated this morning and I ate much this week like I have the past couple of weeks....not really caring or paying attention to what I ate and how much I ate. But I still drank my water as I always do although I thought that I was slipping a bit this past week for some reason. Maybe being in the nursery at church yesterday helped me out some....who knows!!! I am just thankful to finally have made it. "Thank you Lord!!"

You all may get discouraged with your results or lack there of...but I'm here to tell you it pays to keep going with our journey. One day we will make it to the end of our journey. I can say one thing....I'm learning how to maintain my weight if nothing else. The past several weeks has been a roller coaster ride with gaining a little then losing it again and sometimes the loss was enough to take me ahead of where I was the previous week...but I have not given up. Don't give up!! Keep going and keep trusting God with your weight-loss. We can do this with our Lord's help.

So how did you do this week? Don't lose help and keep drinking that water!! I love you all!!!

Sorry For The Lack Of Posting

Good morning everyone!! I am sorry for the lack of posting in the past week. Last Monday I was down on the couch with the heating pad so I wasn't exactly feeling like sitting at the computer and posting anyway. I did weigh-in and I gained so I figured it wasn't imperative that I post such negative news anyway.

But I have lost that and a little more this week....and for that I am happy. Still not to my 30 lb. goal yet....how long has it been now....almost 9 months since I started this journey and I'm still not to the 30 lb. goal. Man this is taking forever. I know...I know...I need to get started on my exercise routine. If I would just do that I'd get 'er done I know. I hope to get to that point every day and then something happens that gets me side-tracked and I don't get it done. Does anyone else have that problem?

I hope and pray y'all are having much better success than I am. I just know that as I get older it is getting harder....in all areas...whether it be weight-loss or exercise. I am drinking my water though!!

Well...stay focused on the goal and stay committed to the task at hand. And let the Lord help you to do what you have committed to do...whatever that is today. Oh yeah....and DRINK THAT WATER!!! That is the one thing I have to say I have not lacked on except when I am not home to be able to drink it. Sometimes it is just hard to get the water I need when I'm not at home with my big jug to drink out of and refill three times.

Love y'all and praying for you too!!
