Guess What Happened to Me?

I stepped on the scale this morning. It is something we do more than we should but I have been trying to break a barrier. I set my sights to get under 200 and guess what?! It finally happened!!!  199. I know it is only a pound under 200, but I will take it!!!You know why? Because EVERY little pound counts. I have lost another 4 inches as well. I am so happy because I feel so much better about myself and am healthier than I have been in a long time. For my friends who are still struggling with weight loss and similar issues. Keep on keepin on! I still struggle with the snacking issue. I always will, but I have to keep on going  because I am important, not only to myself but to my family and most importantly to God who gives me more strength and credit than I deserve.

Family Update:

Lee has lost some pounds as well and still looking good!

Chris is still getting taller and his voice deepens every week.

Jamie is still struggling with allergies and eczema and is starting to sound like a teenager even though she isn't.

Kobi and Penny are still surviving.

Biggest news:

Geoffry and Becca are moving back with us next week. I can't wait to see them and give them the support they need to bring this new baby into the world.

Spring Update - 6 month Checkup

Well, my doctors are pleased with my progress so far. I don't know if I will ever reach my goal weight, but I am happy with my health progress thus far. I feel amazing and it is nice when people notice the change. I would like to take credit for it all, but I know that God has brought me through this journey and He will not leave my side as I continue. I give all glory to Him because He made me strong enough to handle this. I weighed today and am happy to say that the scales are moving again. I am down to 202 - down 128 pounds from when I started. I still have an addiction to snacking so I am working on not buying things like that. Even though they are not bad for me, they are bad when not used in moderation so until I can conquer such a problem they are off the menu. I have lost another 5 inches, which means a total of 64.75 inches off of my body since September. Hallelujah! AND we took a family trip on Monday and had a great time. We stopped at an overlook to take some pictures and I did a cartwheel!!!! I am not sure when the last time I did one was and I am sure it didn't look pretty, but I'll take it!!!

Family updates:

Lee is doing much better. Thanks for all the prayers for the sickness to finally leave his body.

Chris is getting taller and his voice is changing slightly. He is still involved in Boy Scouts.

Jamie is also getting taller and we are hoping that she is finally getting better health wise. 

Kobi and Penny still haven't gotten used to each other yet, but they are doing good.

Geoffry and Becca: Are looking for work and for a place to stay so pray that this will come quickly for them. Our grandson is doing fine and is still looking to make his debut in early August.
