I have rec'd SO many nice notes and 'welcome backs' from my DEAREST Spark Friends that it truly brings me to tears! Thank you so much for the outpouring of LOVE and support this last week! I'm THRILLED to say that God is meeting me, and I can't thank you all enough for being part of this process! I'm probably down 3#'s, and my clothes are ALREADY feeling better! And even though I've only gotten in one walk this week [yesterday my girlfriend & I walked four miles], my food tracking has been 'on plan' all week! I'm SO grateful! I *even* turned down my daughter's homemade cookies because I had had a small helping of buttered popcorn and my fat grams were all used up [even though I did have calories left], so instead I had another DELICIOUS Chobani yogurt shake w/strawberries, banana and stevia! It was only 158 calories and 1 gram of fat--which was all I had left for fat grams!
Anyway, all that to say a HUGE thank you, and send the BIGGEST bear hugs ever!
I'm SO thankful that Nicholas and Andrew are heading home from college, and Nate is going to spend the weekend. We get to talk to Jonathan on Sunday [he graduates from Basic on April 4th] and it will feel SO GOOD to have 7 out of 8 children home this weekend!
Working on my menu planning this afternoon for next week since they LOVE to eat when they come home! ha!
Posting this picture to show the 4 older boys, but also to remind me HOW AWESOME it felt when I had reached my goal weight, and thanking God that I have the motivation to go there again!
Well, I'm off to the races! Thanks again everyone for your love and support! I honestly couldn't do it without you which PROVES that being away from Spark is a recipe for DISASTER!!!!
