Getting close and its scary!

Monday, April 20, 2009

Well I sure dont blog very often, but sometimes I just need to get my thoughts down on "paper" as they say.

On Friday I went to my weigh in and the woman who weighed me said I was down 4.4 lbs in a week. I thought she was mistaken so I had to check out the written numbers myself...NOPE it was true...somehow I had managed to lose 4.4 lbs in a week. OK so what is the problem you are asking. I should have been jumping up and down, happy as a lark... but instead I stood there with my mouth open and my stomach turning. I am in the homestretch now of this very long journey to health. I am so close now it is scaring me. In the past if I were to lose a bunch of weight I would quit before I got to goal. I KNOW I am not quitting this time, but it is still very scary!! OK so if I .... no make that WHEN I finally get to my goal... how do I KEEP it off??? This of course is something I have never never done. As it is I am in uncharted territory with keeping weight off. I have been on this journey for over 2 years now. I am down 170 lbs... which is more than I currently weigh!! I know God will continue to bless me as long as I continue to cooperate with Him and let HIM run my life!

Update on my husband. He is STILL in rehab.... Can you believe it? He went into the hospital on March 1 and was moved to rehab on the 11th So this has been going on for 7 weeks and although he is doing better, we still have no idea WHEN he will be coming home. But God will get me through this... one day at a time. THY WILL not mine... be done!

    It is ok to be a little scared you are treading in uncharted territory, the good news is you are in uncharted territory. YOU made it, YOU did it. YOU are going to be ok. YOU did not just lose weight , YOU changed your life, from not so good habits to habits that are making you healthy and giving you the quality of life YOU deserve.
    Good job!
