I am a wretch, saved by God's amazing grace.

I'm not a perfect girl. I have bad hair days. I fight with my friends. I have acne. I'm clumsy. I don't wear makeup. My nails are always broken. My hair is always in a ponytail. I'm not skinny.

But God thinks I'm beautiful...

I'm not a perfect Christian. I've done a lot of things I'm ashamed of. I never have any money. I get stressed. I can really be a jerk sometimes. I'm impatient. I'm lazy. I'm not strong enough. Sometimes, I just don't know what to do.

But God still loves me...

I don't deserve it. I am totally unworthy. But He loves me anyway. He loves me so much that He sent His Son to die on the cross so that I could come to heaven and be with him. Even though I keep on turning my back on Him, even though I keep sinning against Him, He still calls me back to Him, heals me, and makes me clean. And I will never be alone again.

He loves you that way too.

My Goals:
I want to weigh 150 lbs by my wedding, which was going to be in June, but now we have moved it back to December because we really wanted to get married near Christmas, so I have a whole year now!

My Program:
I am working on eating as close to 1400 calories as possible every day. I am walking at least 2 miles everyday and doing crunches. I need to start doing more strength training exercises and intense cardio.

    Just wanted to drop by and say hi. I am also doing the Valentine's sweetie challenge. You have done an amazing job so far and look great. It's amazing to be able to lose that much weight. I myself I started at 231 and I am currently at 182.

    Keep up the good work. What you are doing is working. And good luck on those last 20 lbs. They might be the hardest.
