Weigh Day - 59.2 pounds!

Okay, only .2 pounds this week.  But after my pulled-pork-and-cake-eating-fest on Friday night, I'm happy to have achieved even that!

This here little turtle represents for me that losing weight slowly can be fun and happy.  It's funny, but you go along for weeks or maybe even months and feel like NOTHING IS CHANGING!!!  Then, all of the sudden...WHAM!  You look in the mirror and see a whole new person staring back at you!  It's pretty amazing.  And I'm not even half way to my goal yet.

The best part of this adventure is that it is an adventure!  All adventures contain both good and bad days.  If all the days were good, there would be no excitement, no anticipation, no reminders to put my faith and hope in God (because I would think I could handle everything just fine by myself.)  Today is a good day, and I do thank God for all the days He has given me.

  2. Hi Cindy,

    That is one happy turtle! And he looks .2 pounds lighter! What a great thought that it is the ups and downs that make life exciting! I don't think people would be lining up to get on a flat rollercoaster.

    I'm smiling at Paul's words to the Philippians about being content no matter what is going on in our lives..."I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry..." I'm not making that up! (Phil 4:12b) God has such a great sense of humor!

    Love you,
    Your sister
