I have found my groove again...it took a couple of weeks and a few more pounds but I am back at it and feeling GREAT!!!!
At the beginning of last week I weighed myself, even though I did NOT want to.
I had been pigging out and just not caring enough.
My roll was hanging over my pants like it has not for a long while so I knew the number was going to be not good.
The short of it all is I, at that moment decided that I was SO worth this fight with food that I was not going to bow before its control any longer!!!! I have the strength and victory but I need to remember that and walk in it...I am the boss not the addiction!
The scale yesterday morning had me back to the 161lb I had been back on the 24th of June.
I am happy with that....9lbs of junk gone from my body in just a few short days, the roll is disappearing again and my mind is in the fight. Prayer is key to keeping this stride going.
With the exception of having a ooey, gooey dessert with my husband while on a date last night, I have been eating wonderful, healthy and whole foods! and my body loves it!
There is nothing like the feeling when your body is fuelled with the best food possible. I have so much more energy, I think clearer, my patience with the children is great and I find so much more time to do all I need to get done in a day.
Everything just seems to fall into place when I keep my eating in check! Go figure!!!
I will weigh in on Friday because I joined a 12 Week Challenge over on a home school forum and our weigh in day will be Fridays. My goal is to lose 1-2 lbs per week.
So by October 7th I will be down 12 - 24 lbs...woohoo!
To see a number between 149 and 137 on October 7th will be cause for a celebration.
Hmm, what should I do to celebrate?
