Peace and Joy
1Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. 3Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.
Hope does not disappoint. Encouraging words, certainly.
June of '04
When I started losing weight 4 years ago, I was a size 24 (triple extra large)
According to size charts, that's:
June 8, 2008
Upper arm 11.5"
Under breast 33"
size 10 (medium)
I'm very secure here, too bad all my witty t shirts are really huge on me. But, they're t shirts, so who cares?
August 9, 2008
Waist 29.5" (-.5)
Hips 39.75" (-2.25)
Thigh 22.5" (-1.5)
Upper arm 11.25" (-.25)
Breast 36" (-1)
Under breast 31" (-2)
That's 7.5 total inches in two months.
The tens are comfortably loose.
So... my 3X me would have lost: 14.5 inches in the bust, 13 inches in the waist, and 13.25 in the hips... I would like to note that that is 40.75 inches off those three spots alone.
I ROCK SO HARD... ^_^
HEE HEE, I'm a princess! See, I've got a tiara and everything! ^_^ Heeeeeee... I'm easy to please, that's all you need know about me.
I'M SO DONE WITH THIS RESTRICTIVENESS. GET ON WITH THE HEALTHY.

Official measurements every month, on the 8th. Remember not to eat too much sodium before then.
I want to ride my Bicycle, I want to ride my bike. Oh, and walking is my old standby.
For ST, I prefer resistance bands, body weight training, and the occasional dumbbell, because they're there. ^_^ I prefer not to take up large amounts of space, it's at a premium in this little apartment.
I have a daughter, and a husband, and they are second in priority after my God.
I can be very kind, but I am allergic to obstinate stupidity, so I try to avoid it in the interests of not getting in a fight over nothing. That said, I find that most people are not obstinately stupid, sometimes merely ignorant, which is not evil, just uninformed.
Oh, and I go nuts over sewing and embroidery on big... powerful... machines. (I'm a nerd, big time.)
Where I was
You still found me
All the truth
That surrounds me
How your grace
Abounds to me
Wow, you're almost there! That's quite an inspiration!!! Congrats!

Thanks for your response in regards the Oatmeal raw vs cooked measurements! It helped clear the confusion while I was in my panicky/frustration mode.
Congratulations on your success as indicated by your weight ticker!
I like your reference to GRACE. My daughter's name is Hannah meaning "Divine Grace."

I agree my avitar is super cute.
I did not draw it. My hubby found it one day on the net, several years ago.
I really like it and looked very similar when I was 125 lbs.
She is on part of my ispiration.
