I love my friends. I really do. They are a true inspiration to me and my journey. When I log on and see their progress I am proud, happy and encouraged. I think, they are doing it...so I can do it. I am doing it. Spark...I started this journey wearing a size 24 and some 26 because of these 2 at the top. LOL. Now I am in a 16 zip up button up pant/jean. I don't ever remember wearing a size 16 in my life. Maybe in the 3rd grade. LOL. I owe this all to my Lord and Savior Jesus. Only through His help and Strength have I come this far.
I wanted to be closer to goal, but when it goes slow for some, it will last. I need this slowness so that I can revel in the end victory.
I am excited and nervous. I know I am gaining muscle because my numbers don't show my success. I know I am successful. I feel healthier and am more outgoing. Some people are very introverted when they are carrying extra weight. That was me. I still am walking through some things, but I know I am making it.
You see, my success was ordained before the foundation of the world. This is the time in my life to be all that I can be spirit, soul and body. I am determined to do just that. I will not let anything slow me down. I have to continue to tell myself that.
So many emotions are involved in weightloss. The agony of defeat...the joy of winning...slow weightloss. I am a winner already. I have jumped over so many hurdles. Life is great. No more pity for me. If you don't like me, see ya.
Not YOU Friends.
I have to give myself a pep talk. After all I am a beautiful woman and the opposite sex will be and are attracted to me. I just don't want to be a fool for love. I want what God wants me to have. God's best is always better than the rest. Sometimes we are just too hard headed to listen and look at what is right in front of us. And if you don't see anything then just keep waiting. A note to self: What do you really want? Whole or half? Self knows what I am talking about.
Friends, I appreciate you all.
Get plenty of sleep and please...
do cardio. Any kind.
I know that has helped me to come this far. I have been slipping but I got my dancing shoes on and I am ready to burn, burn, burn. Is it too late to cardio? I did strength train earlier while watching Biggest Loser. They are all winners. Losing so much weight. They all look beautiful. Wow...my time is so close.
I can feel it. How about you??
Let's Go Team!
