Half-way mark

Monday, February 11, 2013

I am officially at the half way point of where I want to be. According to bmi stuff, my weight is to be between 105 and 140... But, it's encouraging to see my bmi has gone down 9 points this past year. About 15 pounds before I consider myself no longer obese..

Last week, I reached the half way mark. 46 pounds down (47 today--weighed in this morning), and about 45-ish left.

It is a long journey, but it can be a quite enjoyable journey.

Saying "No" to the sin of overeating.
Saying "Yes" to spending time daily with my Savior, Jesus Christ.

My journey started last March.
It continues on.

I am being able to notice serious changes as far as my stomach goes, which is fantastic! I have gone through several pair of jeans. Probably down about 4 sizes..

This past month or so, I didn't workout. Starting walking last week. Just walking one lap around my apartment complex is 0.7 of a mile. I am trying to do that every day. Hoping to start going to the gym--maybe I will even make it tomorrow. I can't do the incline walk required to make it to the gym I was going to, so I am switching gym locations--to see if that helps me continue going. Will take a bit more to make it to the gym, but it'll be worth it in the end...

That's really all that is going on with me.
Enjoying spending time with the Lord.
Beginning to have my prayer/praise walk time in the morning.
Possibly starting back going to the gym...

There are 22 days before I go to the doctor. It would be wonderful if I could lose 5 pounds or maybe a little bit more, so I will be out of the 180s....but it's about the journey. It isn't about the scale even if it is tempting to make it about that. It is about digging deep into the Word of God (the Bible), pursuing intimacy with HIM, and just learning who I am in Him.
