HYC/BLBE Weigh in

3/31/09 254.6 to 254lbs. I tossed .6lbs and feel a sense of relief. I feel like I have been trying to step over a hump and couldn't quite get my leg up, kwim? Didn't get to 240s for March, but I'm okay with that. In fact I couldn't be happier. Why? Because I was able to do this...

I came home from work, we had some burgers on the grill and baked fries, and spent the rest of the evening outside playing. And yep, mama got her tushy in the playhouse with the kiddos. Hubby got the camera and just HAD to get a picture. He said he didn't think I would ever go in there. I think he was proud of me too.
This is the reason I am tossing these pounds, so I can enjoy life with my family. I want them to know mama as a healthy woman, one full of life, happy in the Lord, and beloved by her family. I don't want to hide this journey I'm on, but I pray that God uses it to edify and encourage others also. I can't do this on my own. Been there, done that but I can do it through Christ and I want others to know. Ever hear the song Look what the Lord has done ?
(found it on youtube...how cool is that)
Look what the Lord has done, Look what the Lord has done. He healed my
body, he touched my mind. He saved me just in time. I'm gonna praise
his name. Each day he's just the same. Come on and praise him.
Look what the Lord has done.
This wk's scripture: Mark 5:19..."Go home to your family, and tell them how much the Lord has done for you and how merciful he has been to you."


  1. A loss is a loss. That is awesome. That is so neat that you are able to get down and play in your childs play house with them. I am sure it means the world to them.

  2. Aww, what a sweet photo and wonderful NSV. It's a great reason to get healthy. Congrats on losing the .6!
