90 pounds lost!!!
Thursday, March 13, 2008
It's official... as of this week I am down 90 pounds. It amazes me that I've done this on my own without paying Jenny Craig or Weight Watchers, etc. It's really just eating less and moving more. So simple, and yet so difficult.
The cool thing is that once you've tasted a little success, the motivation is inherent in the process.
I've never felt better. I can cross my legs in church and look beautiful. I hated never crossing my legs like my thin friends. My husband is so happy for me. My kids love that I'll get out and play with them, jump on the trampoline, ride bikes, play hoops. I'm beyond thrilled to shop for regular sizes in everything. I still feel like some crazy sales lady is going to send me back to PLUS sizes where I belong. LOL
There are a few scary things.... like getting tons of attention, being told I'm a role model, constantly having to talk about it to EVERYONE. It's a lot of pressure to maintain what I've done. And I intend to do just that.
I'm not sure where I'll stop weight wise. I'm happy now in my size 12, but I'm still motivated to lose more. Maybe 20 or so.
I constantly acknowledge that God has helped me do this. I seek His face to please Him in all my ways. It is not by the work of my hands that I have accomplished all these things. My prayer is to please God in my body and that Jesus will satisfy my mouth with good things.
So far, so good!
