Weigh in #9

Sometimes in life you got highs and lows.  When you go through all of these changes you reevaluate your goals in life.  That's what I'm going to have to do regarding my goal to loose 50 lbs by Christmas.  Sometimes life can be hard but you have to prioritize what you want in life. 

I started this journey to get healthy and loose weight.  To be in better physical shape so I can live a better fuller life.  So I can serve this world and my Lord the way he wants me to.   I believe that this is what was meant for me to do.  To show others that they can change their life.  If a person who's been over weight since I was a child can do it, and she's approximately 200 lbs over the suggest weight.  So I've lost approximately 1/4th of what is needed to get to the "suggested weight."  Than maybe they will try to achieve their goals.  Not just weight loss or a journey to health.  A journey to achieve any goal they have had in the past and never ventured down that road or a goal they've attempted but never reached.  Remember to achieve something it's best to go at it with a plan.  My plan eating and exercising plan.  The changes that have taken place on the outside has definatley affected the inside of my heart and mind. 

So I will be setting a new goal for me.  I have since reached my christmas goal of loosing 50 lbs. 
It's amazing how far you can go with something if your completely committed, make a plan, inform your family/friends so they can support you, and put your plan into action.  I think the reason that alot of this is working for me now is I'm vowing to live this way.  I can eat alot of my favorite meals on my meal plan and if I choose to have something that's not really on my meal plan I have learned how to make it healthier.  If I can't find a way I have alot of connections or use of the internet to find what I'm looking for. 

Starting weight             338 lbs
Last week weight          293 lbs
This week weight          288 lbs
Weight loss this week       5 lbs
Total weight loss            50 lbs
