Making Progress

For those of you who know me personally, you've know that I've been on a quest to shed some pounds lately.  I've been making pretty good progress.

But then came Thanksgiving.

I weigh myself on Thursday mornings, bright and early.  I did so a week before Thanksgiving, but didn't bother last week, as I wasn't home that morning and it was Thanksgiving Day...

Well, the moment of truth arrived this morning and I am pleased to report that I lost about three pounds in the last two weeks!

That brings my total lost to just under 57 lbs!

That makes me very happy.

Yes, I still have quite a way to go; I've been much too overweight for much too long.  In fact, I've struggled with my weight since puberty.

But, for today, I weigh a bit less than I did when I got married nearly 18 years ago!  In fact, I haven't weighed this amount since I lost weight to pass my physical to become a missionary 12 years ago.

The difference, I think (I hope) is that I'm doing it because I want to, not because I "have" to.  I realize it is going to be a life-long struggle against being overweight and I think I've finally come to grips with that.

That doesn't mean I like it; I don't.  Not at all.

But, for your viewing pleasure, here is a little photo montage of my weight loss journey, so far.
