Day 259 - Broken scale & Christmas traditions

Thursday, December 15, 2011

So my scale broke Monday, I was just moving it over with my foot and the leg went "pop" and made it unusable! Oh well, and honestly praise God because now I'm only focused on having God honoring days! I'm not distracted by the numbers on the scale anymore, especially since I can't see them emoticon

I've completed 2 days of spending time with God, meaning bible study, prayer, conversating. Doing 60 minutes of exercise, whether it's a walk, jog, cardio video, or strength training, and sticking to my nutrition tracker: either on sparkpeople or my homemade tracker. + I'm over half way done with completing day 3! It's taken me a few months to really get a little streak going but I really want to continue this I want to be pleasing to God and I really want to have peace with this body!!!

That's what I've been struggling the most with these past few weeks is peace with my body. Because I've almost lost 100 pounds so far I'm petrified of having loose skin, I can already see where it's going to show up but I don't know if I am and how much loose skin I'm going to have. I've been praying about it just about daily, so I guess it's just a waiting game for now. I've always thought that time is such a waste of time, but I've got my wonderful family and church so at least I won't be alone or unloved during this waiting time!!!

9 Days till Christmas!

Speaking of Christmas we've been discussing it, my husband and I, that Santa isn't really going to be part of our Christmas, we're going to tell our kids about Santa and who he was and that a lot of other kids believe in Santa and we need to respect that but we're not going to focus presents around him.
Instead we're going to bake a birthday cake for Jesus Christmas morning, sing maybe a modified version of Happy Birthday and everything! I'm really excited about the traditions my family is developing.
Just wanted to share that, thought it was something pretty cool!

    I've only lost 20 of my weight & have a long way to go. Even that small amount has made a difference in my skin. I made the decision to use cocoa butter (even if I hate the smell) & it seems to be making a difference.

    I also decided that even if I have loose skin, it's better than filling it out & being super morbidly obese.

    Best of luck to you.

    I've lost 185 lbs., been at my goal for 8 months (as of today), and have tons and tons of loose skin. It's not so bad though--much better than all that FAT that used to fill up my skin. So I wouldn't worry about it if I was you. Loose skin is way healthier than being overweight too, so just cover it up with long pants, long sleeves, and blousy tops and enjoy that weight loss!!!
