The new me- day 5

Totally excited about the 17 day diet! I have not even cheated once, and for me, that's huge! I have even gone out to lunch with a friend and gone to dinner to celebrate another friends birthday. Never once did I feel cheated or like I was missing out on anything. I have successfully gotten out of bed every morning and completed my 2 mile workout, although I admit today was a little hard to get moving, but I did it! My daughter even wants to go for walks with me in the evenings, which usually turns into a run because she wants me to chase her around the neighborhood ;) My family is eating healthier and I am really enthusiastic that I'm goon to stick to this. I don't want to miss out on the good things God has to offer me because I don't feel good or I'm too tired or just plain lazy.

Here's my progress so far:

Started Unofficially on Monday, started officially on Tuesday evening

Total weight lost: 7 pounds

I will start calculating inches today!

Thanks for your support! I feel better and happier than I have been in a long time!

The new improved me

So. I have decided that I need to be a better servant of Christ and in doing that I need to remember that my body is a temple.

I found a book, thanks to a friend, and it changed my eating habits and exercising habits. I have lost 4 pounds in two days and I am so encouraged and truly excited! Having an understanding and loving husband definitely helps, and knowing that I can lean on Jesus when the days are long keeps me going.

I am so proud of my quick accomplishment and am looking forward to having a healthy long life with my family, however long God decides that is. I know that realistically i will have struggles and not every day will be as easy as the first few have been.
As I'm seeking his will for my life, I can't help but be reminded that he created this earth and all the things in it and I need to do what I can to help myself and my family grow strong physically and spiritually. I'm truly happy and feeling great for the first time in a long time. Thank you Lord!!!
