Weight Watchers Goal

Last night I reached one of the biggest milestone in my weight loss journey. At my weigh-in last night, I reached my original Weight Watchers goal!!! WOW!! At my meeting I received my goal charm that is in the shape of a star. I can't believe I made it! God has been with me every step of the way and without Him I could not have done this. He has changed me inside and out. He has also put amazing people around me to support me through this journey and I could not have done it without them either. Thank you.

When I began this journey I was not convinced that I could lose 10% of my body weight let alone get to goal. After losing 20% of my body weight my Weight Watchers leader Linda and I set my goal, which I reached last night. However, in the back of my mind I have always wanted my goal to be 10 pounds less than the one I set with Linda in March. So, now that I know I can do it, I am going to keep going. At least I am going to keep going until I reach my ultimate goal weight and no less than that. I have prayed over where to set my goal weight and I feel that my body is still losing the remaining weight better than I thought it would. As my husband said, keep losing until I can’t lose anymore.

Thank you all for your love and support. The week before last I learned in my Weight Watchers meeting that we need to celebrate our weight loss achievements. That’s why I have shared this with you, even though I am going to keep going, so that we can celebrate each and every milestone together. When I reach my ultimate goal we will have to celebrate again and maybe even have a party, with Weight Watchers friendly food of course.

Creation Festival "The Tour"

It has been quite a month so far. I wanted to share some pictures with you from our weekend. Saturday we went to the Creation Festival concert. It was so much fun. There was a wide variety of bands. We listened to FM Static, B. Reith, Audio Unplugged, Thousand Foot Krutch, and Jars of Clay. Audio Unplugged was our favorite!! Thousand Foot Krutch was so load that I had trouble hearing Jars of Clay. It was amazing to me to watch people get excited over so many different bands. Here are some pictures...enjoy.

75 Pounds Lost

Praise the Lord!! Last night I went to my Weight Watchers meeting. I weighed in and I learned that to date I have lost 75.4 pounds!! Talk about reaching a milestone!! Wow!! I received my 75 pound weight charm to add to my collection and my 5 pound sticker, at the meeting.

I was extremely overwhelmed by this achievement. I was almost in tears at my Weight Watchers meeting. God has done an amazing work in me changing my life both physically and spiritually. He deserves all the praise, without Him none of this would have been possible. I know that if it is His will for me to reach my goal then I will.

The other wonderful thing that happened yesterday was that I went running for the first time in a week and a half. I went running on 8.19.09 and really irritated my knee. Ever since then I have been trying to take it easy and rest as much as possible to help my knee recover. So with Jon by my side we ran 2 miles last night and my knee feels great!! I am so happy to be back out there running. I was suprise that I have missed it more then I thought I would. What can I say, I'm a runner!!
