Loss this week: -1.1
Total lost: 13 lbs
It's been 5 weeks now since I started this adventure. 13 pounds in 5 weeks - not too shabby. To make my impossible goal, I need to average 1.75 each week for the next 21 weeks. That's not impossible, but it sure is improbable!
I know this week was a slightly smaller loss than before. But there's a good reason for that . . . apparently my scale says I'm heavier than my mom's! Which really means that my first loss on vacation was less than I thought, and this one is probably more than it says, and in reality I didn't start this whole process as heavy as I thought. But I'm here now, and we're just going with my scale for here on out.
I was again amazed at the difference of the days I remember to pray (frequent, fervent prayers) vs the days that I don't think about it. He only helps when I ask - so why do I forget to ask more!
This week, my hardest thing was traveling (again), and loosing my points calculator. Man, that was a huge one! But I should get it back in a few weeks, so at least that won't last too long.
I was gone for two weeks. In those two weeks, I lost almost 5 of my 13 pounds. Yesterday was the first time I've seen anyone, so at first, I wondered if anyone would be able to tell. I feel so much better in my clothes now (they are starting to be super loose!) But then I realized that it just wasn't very likely. I could see a difference, but I doubted anyone else would.
But someone did! Only one person, and it was at the end of church, but I can not express how much that meant to me. It feels fabulous to have someone else notice your changes. My weight is down to where I was before I got pregnant with Jelly Bean. This is awesome!
Next week, I want my loss to be obvious to everyone. Don't know if that will happen, but that would be amazing!
