It has been a little over 5 months since I have posted anything on the “grace is melting” front. However I am SOOO happy to report that I have still been “melting”… Actually I have reached a huge milestone for me.
I have lost 20 pounds!!!!!
There have been many times throughout this journey that I did not think I would be able to say that. Oh goodness, there have been many times in my life where I have realized I have gone 20 pounds the other direction and allowed Satan to add my “weight” guilt and shame. And then I allowed him to stop me on this journey. But NO MORE!! Praise Jesus, I am still melting!
Thanks to Jesus, some great accountability, going through the Made to Crave study at church and Jillian Michaels kicking my butt (via dvd) each morning, I can now say I HAVE LOST 20 LBS!!!!!!!
And I reached this milestone right in time for my 30th Birthday! Yes, today I turn 30 and I am not too happy about it. But I am choosing to be happy about other things!!!
Here are my running total of “weigh ins” on here: for 2011– 8/4/- 228. 8/11- 227. 8/25- 230. 9/4- 228. 9/8- 226. 9/15- 225. 9/22- 228. 10/24- 224. 11/9-222. For 2012– 4/12/-217. 9/13-206.
So let the celebration begin!!!
