Update on 40 in 40

Well, I figured since I told you all here that I would be doing this, that I would update the progress every once in a while.

It's - going...lol

I was doing well with getting up and exercising, then my human-ness jumped up and took over and I slept in a couple of days then we had some pot luck lunches here at work...with Macaroni and cheese! :o( Bad ... Bad ... Macaroni and Cheese!

I did lose 4 lbs, but then put back on 2. bummer!

So this week I renewed my vow with God. This is a journey. One that I see being several steps forward and backward. Sort of like a dance. Perhaps if I keep dancing that will help the weight come off? :o) A girl can dream right?

This week I have been getting up early and working out. Then running in the evening getting ready for the race this weekend. I am SO not ready for it. But I am determined to get it finished!

I have worked off another pound, and have been way better about eating. Eating enough to cover the working, but enough to lose some weight in the process. :o)

I went shopping Sunday at the local thrift stores to get some clothing for the trip. I have to tone up a few places before I can wear some of the pants to ET...lol so that's what I am working on. :o) I still have a little over 2 weeks. Not a ton of time, but I know from experience my body is better at dropping inches than it is weight. I know that doesn't seem to make sense, but it's the truth. :o) When I was on Weight Watchers a couple of years ago I hit a plateau in weight loss that was very frustrating, but the inches were dropping like crazy.

Maybe I will make this challenge the 40 lbs or 40 inches by 40? :o) I think I will! It's my challenge right?

So there you have it. I am plugging along, not giving up. I have been faithful to my scripture reading and prayer time. :o) That part has been awesome.

Thank you for the prayers! Keep them up!!

Well, it sounds like you have the most important part going strong! With that as a priority everything else will fall into place as it should in due time. I keep praying, my friend!

Right now, I'M EATING LOL-its the ONLY time in my life I have an excuse to eat whatever I want and by GEORGE, I'm using it! However, I cannot wait to get back to my original weight once the baby is born and get back to exercising!
