WOO HOO! Down 93.6 pounds
Wednesday, May 21, 2014
I'm so excited. Only a few short pounds from my first hundred pound loss, and ahead of schedule, as of today. It's been a bumpy road this past two months, when my 9 pound loss in the beginning of April was reversed by a 6 day protocol of steroid drugs for a torn rotator cuff injury. It took weeks for it to come off again, but come off it did! The word I have to use is PERSEVERANCE! I was devastated by the initial weight gain and if I had followed past patterns, I would have thrown it all out the window. But I prayed about it, and God showed me that it was the drug and not to worry about it. I wasn't warned about this by the doctor, and I'm very disappointed that she didn't say anything to me about it as a warning. But once knew it was the drug, it set my mind and my heart at peace, and the following week when I had another weight gain it didn't bother me AT ALL. It really is a mind over matter thing sometimes, isn't it? So two weeks ago I weighed in with a 4 pound loss, so I was back.
Then I missed my meeting last week but stayed on track anyway. Today at the scale the girl said "Eleven!" My heart sank and I asked, "Eleven up?" and she said "No,eleven down!" If I hadn't sat back down in my wheel chair after stepping off the scale, you could have knocked me over with a feather! Down a total of 93.6 pounds. I'm ahead of schedule for the year and hope to hit the 100 pound mark by my birthday next month. I never really thought I could get to this point again, but here we are, and I feel so blessed. thank you Lord, for answered prayer, and the hope of a new me after all these years. As I wrote on my page heading, never imagining it would really happen again, The weight was worth the wait. Thank you Lord, and for spark being here to support me in my goals through the difficult times just past.
