3 Pounds away from "Normal" ~ Thanks Chalene ~ Grand Jury Tomorrow

Wednesday, September 28, 2011

I donít blog that often anymore. I guess I really should. Iíve reached a milestone that is beyond words for me. For years and years Iíve struggled to stay under 140lbs. That was a trigger number for me, Iíd crash diet, freak out, whatever if I got over it. I abused my body in ways that make me cringe now.

Today I sit here at 126.8lbs. And, I did it with eating enoughÖand TurboFire/TurboJam. My husband ordered me Chalene Extreme, and I canít wait to put that into the mix. In 3lbs, I will not be overweight anymore. Thatís a feat I really was starting to wonder if Iíd ever reach. I give myself full credit, of course, logging, working out, counting calories, it all combined is what has gotten me here. Wearing a size 4, no less. I do credit TurboJam/TurboFire some, though. I had no idea I could push this hard. When Iím done, Iím covered in sweat and feeling amazing. My husband is in awe that I can do what Iím doing. When I do try other workouts, I go further, I think because I realize I can push harder than I thought.

Thank you Chalene, and fellow sparkers. I suppose sheíll never know what sheís done for my self-esteem and confidence.

If you did read my blog that was taken down. It was about the friend in jail for something he didnít do. Well, we got the money together for his lawyer. The preliminary trial the judge said the prosecutor did NOT prove their case, but it has to go to grand jury based on the charge alone. The transcript was sent to Grand Jury. In that transcript the judge says he would drop the case. My friend and his attorney are not allowed in the grand jury to see if he gets indited (sp?). Hopefully the transcripts are enough to drop the case. His lawyer seems to think it is. However, if not, we cannot get the rest of the money together to retain this attorney (who is awesome). At least he got him this far. Iím still praying. The Grand Jury is tomorrow. I just pray they see the truth.

Thanks everyone.
