One Year Anniversary!
Before: 191lbs, size 16 pants, xl shirt
Today: 131lbs, size 6 pants, sm shirt
As I signed up for Shibboleth I stared at my computer screen when it said to fill in my goal weight. That was a hard one. A number popped in my head and I told myself, "No, that's unreasonable. You can usually hold 150lbs, the best for your age (55) and height (5'2"). Don't set yourself up for disappointment."
But I knew I should do it. Something told me, "Trust me." My husband even said, "Don't try hard to get "skinny". I get that. He didn't want me to feel compelled to "have to be a certain weight."
But this time, after staring at that blank a long time, I finally put that number in, 130lb goal weight.
My first 40lbs came off in only 4 months. Then my husband wanted to join me, so began to not be as "strict" so as to walk with him where he was at, yet the weight still came off, bit by bit. Nice and slow and a few plateaus, but honestly, I wasn't discouraged. I knew this was working and it was up to me how fast or slow it would happen.
I am not disappointed.....I went right past the 150 barriers I always stopped at before. I am now right at goal weight.
I feel so good. I have my annual physical today. I will report what my numbers are compared to a year ago. But in the meanwhile, just had to take a moment and be grateful for this journey God allowed me to take with Him and with you guys!
