Today is a banner day! 

I finally reached a goal I had set for myself before we went on our Texas vacation this summer.  The objective was to lose three pounds while I was gone.  Let's see...that was July 21st.

And now, on October 8th, I'm there!  Three pounds in two and a half months.  I'm not going to win any speed records here.

Lucky for me, speed isn't the goal.  Healthy living is the goal, with the blessed side effect of losing weight as my body normalizes and reflects my new lifestyle.   I am now 59 pounds away from the upper limit that Weight Watchers sets for my healthy weight range.  Personally, I'd like to lose a few more than that, say, 65 more.  Which means I'm half way there!

The other good news is that I woke up feeling good today...finally.  So my biggest challenge for the day will be to keep resting and not overdo it.  Patience.  Perseverance.  Peace.



  1. Yes indeed! A banner day! Funny, I've been thinking in halves today, so how perfect that you a half way there. When Nehemiah was rebuilding the wall in Jerusalem, they built it all at the same rate to the half way point. This 9 foot thick half made a very strong foundation for the rest of the wall to go on top. You have done the same! You have a very strong foundation for the other 65!

    Woohoo! Congratulations!

    Love you,
    Your sister

  2. And woohoo that I figured out that I can comment from my Mac if I use "Anonymous"! Didn't I learn that about a year ago??? Slow learner, apparently.
