And that something might be the chair I am sitting on! Ok it is not that bad but as I have said over and over this last couple years has been a little bit of a battle of the bulge. The bulge is most decidedly winning. I do need to get the idea of being skinny or having a perfect body out of my mind. It is not about how I look but about how I feel. This is the body God gave me and I need to take care of it.
I decided to set a goal for myself of 27 pounds over 18 weeks. I was at 167 when I started and have lost almost 3 pounds in 2 weeks. Some of it was a no brainer. Quit eating a huge dessert every night, cut out fast food, start eating things that God actually intended for humans to consume...... My biggest problem is that I am kind of lazy so when it is time for a meal and I can pick between going to McDonald's or actually cooking something, I will always pick McDonald's. I haven't started working out yet but coincidentally I won a 6 month family membership to our local Y last weekend!. So now I have no excuse. Time to hit the gym! Here is where I am as of 1/25:
Weight - 164.6
Waist - 31 inches ( when I was in high school I had an 18 in waist. hurts just to think about it )
Hips - 40 1/2 inches
Arms - 12 1/2 inches
Thighs - 25 inches ( yep 7 inches more than my waist was back then!!! )
"Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you....So glorify God in your body." 1 Corinthians 6: 19-20
