Am I to week 7 already?

Wow, time flies!! You know, when I look at how long I've been working towards this goal, the time that has passed seems to have gone by so quickly. Funny, because whenever I look ahead, a seemingly large chunk of time that I need to accomplish my goal seems so huge and overwhelming at times. In other words, I shouldn't get so overwhelmed by whatever amount of time is necessary to get to my goal. The time will probably pass much more quickly than I think...

I lost another 1.4 pounds this week; thank You, Lord!!

I've lost 6 so far.
31.8 to go! I said last week, my goal was to get below the "30 pounds to go" mark in 2 weeks from that day, so I need to lose 2 pounds this week to get below that mark.

I actually didn't stick with my calorie counting very well this week. So, to have not given my best effort and still lost weight is pretty amazing to me. It just makes me wonder if I stick with my plan every day this week how well I could do next Friday?

I'm sorry for when I fall short, as I often do. I need God's help so much in this effort! Yesterday I was really hungry in the afternoon. I kept thinking of how I was going to have to post here today; that knowledge really helped me to say no to just eating whatever I wanted yesterday afternoon.

So, I hope to be able to come back here next week with this report--that I stuck with my goal of journaling my calories and eating close to my goal amount EVERY day. Will you help keep me accountable by coming back to check on me?? Thanks to those who check in on me. It means a lot.


  1. Yeah Laura!!! I will try hard to keep you even more accountable this week... just don't want to be a pain in the rear, nagging older sis. :-) No, really! I am so glad this is helping you reach your goals, and I am so proud of you! You are doing great! I love you so much!!!

  2. I did check in here yesterday and didn't see anything new. So, I am glad to see this post today. =]
    I needed the encouragement because mine is not going so quickly either and I am sticking pretty tight to my calories (around 1300 a day). It is coming off very slow, it seems and will fluctuate during the week. So, I have lost 5 to 7 pounds depending on how the scales fall. So, seeing you praising God for 6 pounds was really a good encouragement for me right now. Thanks!
