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.
