Last Springy Journal - Joy
We did it! Another 10 weeks of exercising has come and gone. Sure seems like it went by quickly this time : )
I´ve had something really crazy happen...and a bit discouraging. One of my birthday gifts was a new scale, and after using it for the last 5 days, I´ve discovered that my original scale was almost 4 lbs. ( 2 kilos) off. This makes my original weight (back in Sept. ) much higher.
The good part is that I have lost weight and lots of inches. The down side is that I´m weighing in today at just a kilo short of where I thought I was in Sept. Not sure if that makes a lot of sense, but mentally it has been like starting over. But, I´ve asked the Lord to help me to stay focused on the progress and not on the reality.
I could easily turn this into an inspirational post : ), but it is time to go for my 2 km. walk this a.m., so will post the measurements and the time exercised and send along a big hug to you all. May the Lord encourage our hearts and keep us all exercising and eating in a way that will care for our bodies for His glory.
P.S. I never got around to the video, but since my clothes feel looser and...I´ve now had 2 people say, "you look thinner, have you lost weight?", I´m posting a picture taken at a wedding on Saturday.
