The time is flying by so quickly! I am losing weight and inches but I am also gaining perspective about how I got this big and how not to return! I have challenged myself to do more; cleaner eating, more exercising, and drinking more water. Just to see what happens! Thank God that I have the husband I do because he’s picking up a lot of my slack…without complaining or obligatory high fives (you know how they can be!). I only have seven weeks left and WE have every intention of giving it everything WE’ve got. It really has been a joint effort and I know I would not be doing as well as I am without his support…and massages! I didn’t gain all this weight in 12 weeks but I have already had Blessings in my life so I know what God is capable of when you put your faith into action.
It is getting easier to not eat the things I am not allowed. It is getting easier to breathe and enjoy a workout. My two year old who has NEVER done daycare just runs to the toys without giving me a second thought. I have more energy during the day so that I can still maintain my responsibilities as a housewife and mother and be 100 during my workouts. I can’t help but recognize that all the factors (excuses, really) that kept me at almost 250 pounds are falling by the wayside. I know it is because I finally know what it means to step outside of what I think is me and start loving and taking care of myself the way it was intended. Whether I win this competition between the girls or not, I already know that I have defeated my greatest enemy.
