I can scarcely believe I have been doing this for 1/4 of a year. It seems like a long time, but then not. So, as of today I am down 26.6 pounds. My birthday is next week and I wanted to be down 25 pounds by then, so I am ahead of schedule.
I have added a slide show over in the side bar so you can see my progress. It is amazing to me to see these photos and how much 26.6 pounds have made on my body - not to mention my emotions and soul.
God is really blessing me right now to the point it is difficult to express in words. This was an emotionally difficult week, and I'm not just talking about the election. Wednesday was my mother's birthday and the week before was the anniversary of her death. I never know how I am going to feel, but I did not feed my emotions with food. I fed them with my friends and laughter and God.
So thank you God, for sending your Holy Spirit to comfort and strengthen me.
