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."

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!!!

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

Oh Julie!!!!! BRAVO! You have done wonderful and your a real challenge for me. I should be there with you but I have gone into exile and I don't like it. You've convicted me, thanks!!

Sis. Julie said...

Sis. Tori...Well...thank you I think. I'm glad I have helped you with my roller coaster ride of a journey. I would I could be more determined and dedicated to this weight-loss journey...but I'm sure thankful that I have FINALLY met my next goal. I ONLY have 25 more pounds to go now. That might take another year to reach at this rate!! LOL!!
