OK...this is the 3rd time I'm trying to type in my post!!!
I keep hitting the dumb touch pad on my laptop and it keeps highlighting and deleting my text.. RRRROOOOAAAARRRRR!!!
hehe...well I am having a great week! It's been 5 days since I started and I snuck on the scale after work today to get a peek of my weight (even though I'll have a normal weigh-in Monday mornings in the buff after using the RR) and I'm at 237!!! I won't update my ticker til after Monday morning's weigh-in because it'll be more official and I know it'll be lower :-D. I'm SO HYPED!!! I don't even feel like I'm dieting because everything I've had has been so yummy. Add in the fact my pants are fitting better since I'm a lil less bloated and I'm on cloud 9 to see this working in just 5 short days. *sigh* :-)
I'm hoping to be either at or under 200 lbs by the end of May...we're going to vegas for just under a week. Aaaiiiiyyeeeeeee!! :-D I've never been there and I'd love to be able to buy some cute new outfits. I'm so excited to be healthier and the thought of being in better shape for this summer is lifting my spirits like they haven't been in sooooo long.
I've been battling autoimmune thyroid disease for yes, and it's been killing me inside. :-( I gain weight just by looking at food, my hair would fall out in chunks, my skin felt like leather and would always be itchy, my face was always puffy...and not from being as fat as I am...it was a different kind of puffy. But I feel like there is a light at the end of this tunnel. I've had God wake me up recently and this past month since I've been back in a Church and going down the path i feel like He is pushing me toward and I can't believe how much things have improved for me and how quickly in all areas of my life, not just my health. It truly is amazing how much He loves us and how he will really guide you where you are meant to go if you just listen. It's a blessing I'm even alive...I was born November 6th, but February 8th should have been my birthday. My mom reminded me the other day about my story - being born 98 days early and she was told not to get attached to me because it was only a matter of time before I died. Everyone has a purpose in life, we just have to be open to His plan for us and things fall in place. The hardest part is opening up so we can hear Him.
Sorry for "preaching" if anyone doesn't believe or is squeamish about faith talk...I just had to give it back to Jesus for saving me. <3 because without Him I wouldn't be here today....literally.
I hope everyone is having a great day!!
