Weighing in: Week 4
Wow, Week 4 already!! Only 4 more weeks till my birthday . . . and my original weight loss goal! Well, I'm happy to say that this week the scale showed that I had lost 1 lb, leaving me with 10 lbs. left to go on my goal. I don't see myself losing 10 lbs. in the next 4 weeks, but I am thankful to be 1 lb. closer, anyway. :) This is, of course, assuming my scale was telling me the truth! I've definitely questioned its truthfulness often, but I'm happy to believe it when it shows me a loss! ;)
I did really bad with exercise last week, only doing my workout once. Oops! I also did pretty bad with my eating, indulging in cake and ice cream a lot more than just once . . . but I did work on watching portion sizes, not just with sweets but with everything. This week I am planning to work on incorporating more salads into my diet. Especially for lunch. I'll let you know how it goes.
Yesterday we had evangelist Jerry Sivinksty at our church, and during the Sunday School hour he preached on discipline in the Christian life. He covered three points: discipline of the mind, discipline of the body, and discipline of the heart. The whole message was really good, but the discipline of the body part was especially convicting, considering my weight loss/fitness challenge. :) It was a much-needed little kick in the pants for me!
Anyway, I'll stop chattering and let you all share how your own challenge is going! I hope you guys are pressing on and able to stay encouraged to work toward your goals, too. Thanks for helping to keep me accountable!
