I lost 1.8 lbs this week from last week. What's more important, I have been actually feeling more muscular, energized, and I feel stronger. (Nonscale victories right there.) I feel better about my weight loss journey lately, not because of the numbers reflected on the scale...but because I am proud of the steps I've taken in this journey.
I'm on the CUSP of going into the 140's!!! I currently weigh 150.2lbs. I am so excited! To think, I started this journey in the 180's!!!
Today I we met with the Reverend for the first time in our pre-marital counseling. It was very insightful and I feel very excited about our counseling session. I am excited (a bit tentative but excited nonetheless) to also grow in my faith. It has not been an area of focus in my life for a long time and I think its exciting to think about spending time focusing on this area with Randy by my side. I was nervous about how "conservative" our counseling session was going to be but the pastor put me at ease when he said that women were created to be equal in the marriage. Not the man higher than the woman (or vice versa). I am excited for a life partnership. My mother did not have that and so its exciting for me to be able to have that kind of relationship in my life.
Things I'm thankful for:
Work meeting today that reinforced to me that its important to be ME.
