Loss/Gain: - 2 . 0 lbs
While I'm glad to see the scale back down I am in a state of seriousness, because it's not like I haven't lost this two pounds a "million" times before.
In fact, as funny as the email I shared in yesterday's post was ... the truth of the matter is "faith without works is dead" (James 2:17) . I can pray, have prayed, for God to help me change, and I know he has. However, it's entirely up to me to make the right choices every. single. day.
There are just over two weeks until Christmas and I keep thinking, "All I want for Christmas is to be out of the 180's f.o.r.e.v.e.r. !!!" Now I just have to prove that I wanted it badly enough to do what it takes to see it happen.
Oh, and can I just say...it stinks having to worry about weight during December. This is my third December since I started my weight loss journey. In the past I've allowed myself to simply try and maintain through the month. Had I worked harder on my Hot 100 goals in the last two months I might feel better about not working as hard right now; however, it's like I've procrastinated and now that I've fallen behind I have to work while others "play". *sigh*
But...just so you don't think I'm wallowing in a state of holiday depression I will end by letting you know that everything else is going great in my life. I'm ...
- Walking 3 miles at least 4-5 days a week
- Drinking at least 64 oz. of water daily
- Christmas cards are done and going in the mail this weekend
- Most of my shopping is done
- I have party plans that are falling into place
- The bills are paid
- We are all healthy and ...
- I'm even enjoying a nice book with a Christmas theme running through it when I have a few minutes each day.
Now if I can just eat weight loss portions it will be a perfect holiday! :)
Oh, and because I committed to it...for the record:
16 to go
Have a nice weekend!
