First Week Update

Okay, I'm pretty pumped. I don't usually measure this often, and I don't usually measure in this many places. Anyway, when you add up all of those .5 inches, I had a total of 4 inches of loss!!! (Can I start measuring my ankles, and my wrists, and my fingers, and...!!) That, with 2lbs of weight loss makes me a pretty happy camper for a week!

I never want to fail to give God the glory, because He is truly the One that enables me. One day at a time, one right decision at a time; one day at a time of depending on His strength and power. God is good. All the time.

I had more opportunities to slip this week than normal. And yet, God enabled me to control my eating and increase my exercise inspite of spending nearly 2 days in bed---though I exercised both of those days trying to rid my body of whatever it was I have!

However, even in the bad times...the times I don't lose, or I fall, I remember that God is still good. He is still forgiving, and that I need to trust Him as He is the enabler.

Yay!!!! 4 inches and 2 lbs. Way to Go!!!!! Isn't it great? I too was really sick last week, but the Lord allowed me to work out anyways. I think sweating it out really helped. I'm still a little congested but much better. How are you this week?

Thanks, Charlie! Congrats to you, too! I'm feeling better...not good, though. I still have the congestion thing. I keep telling myself that it would be much worse if I hadn't been doing all this exercising.

Wooo hooo! well, I think we´ll just keep to measuring the given places jeje, but I sure wish I had started measuring my calves from the beginning. I saw a lot of change in them.

I love your reminder to give God all the glory! AMEN!

I am pumped for you!! Woo hoo
