I've been super sick this week since Tuesday night so I wasn't about to complete most of the challenges!
Change it up & Tone and Tighten
I was so ready to try some zumba this week but I just couldn't do any exercise, but I was super strict on my eating!
Lighten your drinks
I was able to complete this challenge though this week! Especially with having this cold I've been very good about getting in my water!
Today though I'm finally starting to feel better, I finally found a medicine that works, after 3 or 4 failed attempts at getting relief!!! I'm excited about this next week because I'm back on board and ready to blow week 6 out of the water!

Pant size: was 16-18 now my pants are a little baggy but I still fit comfortably in those sizes
Bust: was 39 now 38 1/2
Thigh: same 24
Hips: was 48 now 46
Waist: was 36 now 34 1/2
Arms: was 16 now 14 1/2
Well I've only lost 7.4 pounds, but I've learned so much in these first four weeks! I 've really learned how to be a peace with whatever the scale says each week and I'm not as obsessed about seeing the numbers go down. I'm more interested in how I feel at the end of each day, whether I prayed, stuck to my nutrition, or did my exercise. I've realized how I emotionally eat and why I can't seem to help myself on "special" occasions.
Kick up the fitness:
I got 250 cardio minutes this week! Woohoo!

Freggies!!! That word seriously makes me giggle!!!
I usually like to get about 8 freggies in a day! And yay I've already switched to either fresh, frozen, or no salt, no sugar added canned veggies!!! Honestly they just taste better to me!
I've almost completed that! I did 30 minutes Sunday, 60 minutes Monday, and 60 minutes yesterday. I've already got a 20 minute walk and 40 minute turbo jam off the checklist for today!!!
Be Honest -
Love this one!!! I'm bad about taking a taste of my daughters lunch or snack and thinking it wasn't very significant, but I'm even logging that in so there's like .10% of a cookie HA!

So I was going down my checklist of posts I need to make and check-ins I need to write but I got on the 20 something page and I just wanted to post a message on how I'm not so focused on the scale anymore... but then I realized something... I'm completely focused on the scale and how people react to my weight loss, so this is my message
I know I'm participating in BLC #12 and I'm doing pretty good about just registering the number on the scale and logging it in (so far I've done nothing but loose weight)
I think I'm making progress but I'm still indulging (unrestrained action) with my eating! Yeah I'm still loosing weight (not much) but I'm just not satisfied!
You know what, I think I'm finally taking steps in the right direction but the enemy is coming at me hard core! I've had so many temptations road blocks coming up in the just the past couple weeks.
I think I might have just had a revelation, I didn't type it all down but you know what, I think I'm finally making peace with my weight and why I'm loosing the weight. I'll drift off in dream land throughout the day and just think about how my family is going to react when skinny me walks through the door on Thanksgiving, I'm so wrapped up in what my family is going to say when I eat and I just went out to dinner with my grandparents Sunday and was super careful about what I ate but as soon as they left I got a baked potato with all the fixings! (yeah it was a sweet potato) but I put a tablespoon of butter, sour cream, chives, bacon bits! (I don't even like bacon bits all the much!!!) OMG I'm still loosing the weight for the wrong reasons, I have shallow desires and I'm getting shallow results! I just realized it but in the back of my mind I've been planning how I'll eat when I get together with family this holiday and how I'll binge on the food I really want when I leave.
I have not been capturing my thoughts at all these past couple weeks!
I'm sorry this went so long, I just meant it to be a short message but I'm so glad I started to post this I've learned a lot about me in just the past couple minutes!
Thank you for letting me share!
My husband asked me, "why do you want to loose weight"
because I want people to ogle at me, I want to hear how awesome I am! If I'm being 100% honest that's why I'm loosing the weight
I'm taking the right steps to figuring out that I need to be eating healthy (weight loss or not!) for God! Because for so long eating was my comfort, my friend, I put food on a pedestal. I ran to food all the time, but I should be running to God all the time! Food may comfort me for a second or two with a delicious bite but it doesn't give me lasting comfort in fact all it does is give me lasting cellulite, stretch marks, and guilt. And I wont swing the pendulum in the opposite direction and hate food because God gave me food to nourish my body to do his work, that's it.
I have a lot to think about!
