Weigh-in Day, Week 10

on March 30, 2013

I give up. Well, not really but I almost felt like it this morning. Another week of going in the wrong direction on the scale, up 1.5 lb this week. Grrr.

I KNOW the scale isn’t the only measure of success with losing weight, though it sure is the most motivational it seems. For instance, I slipped into a pair of SIZE 18 dress pants yesterday and got them zipped and buttoned all the way up. The thighs were still a little snug for all-day comfort so I didn’t end up wearing them but I got them on! I have not worn size 18 since well before I was 18. I’ve been a 20 for the past while. 22 before that and 24 at my heaviest. Bet you skinny readers didn’t even know those sizes existed…and in most stores they don’t. One of the many things I am looking forward to as my size goes down – shopping in ANY store I want to. One of the most frustrating things about losing weight though is having to buy new clothes every few months and I hate the phases when I’m in between sizes. I’m kind of there now. Most 20s feel too big, 18 still feels too snug, and there’s nothing in between.

So where have I been all week anyway? Well, as I said in last Sunday’s post, I wanted to commit to spending some daily time in God’s Word (The Bible) this week and working on my relationship with Jesus. Well, I have had a week of very early mornings doing that, then school, then exercise, and then the kids take over my life for the rest of the day so I really haven’t had much opportunity to write on here. By the way, my relationship with Jesus? Closer now than it was a week ago. Go figure. You spend time alone with someone, you actually start to get to know them better.

Here we are at the start of another week, lets make it a good one. Whether I feel like it or not.

    Sara, Sara. My Leefste Zesta!
    You are on the right track and Jesus is there for you all the way.
    This is what He did for you and for me:

    He paid a debt He did not owe, I owed a debt I could not pay,
    I needed someone, to wash my sins away.
    And now I sing a brand new song, Amazing Grace all day long.
    Christ Jesus paid the debt that I could never pay!
