Weigh In: 1.5 lb. Loss


171 lbs.

The ball is rolling. I might be wrong but I think this is the lowest weight I have been since the beginning. I am thrilled but I'm just keeping everything in perspective. Weight going down is good, but making the right choices is even better.

NSV (Non-Scale Victories) for the week:
  • Finally fit into the lowest size of Lane Bryant "right fit" jeans. When these don't fit I will officially NOT be able to shop at the big girl stores.
  • Shared spiritual testimony with my church body and did not pass out or even shake. Glory to God!
  • Began my 4th Bible Study through First Place 4 Health: Walking in Grace. It is awesome!
  • Recently ran 5 continuous miles--furthest distance to date.

I just read this quote that @ScottyWardSmith posted on twitter:

"Repentance, not insight, is the dynamic in all real change." Dan Allender

It's so true. You can attain all the knowledge in the world but if you aren't willing to move away from that which enslaves you, change can not happen. Just do the next "right" thing. You can--His grace is enough!

Way to go. How much more important to learn the lessons and have the NSV! But how great to have the scale go down while learning!

Good for you!

This is my first visit to your blog and glad that I found it. Congratulations on your loss. You are really doing well and look great. Lowest size of Lane Bryant is awesome as well. I look forward to some day (maybe next year) not shopping at the big girls stores. You're so close, good for you.

Just stopping by to catch up! It has been a while. Congrats on the loss. The NSVs are AWESOME! I think they show so much more about the work God is doing than just the measurement on the scale. Your previous post...ouch...a bit convicting if I am completely honest. So many of those sounded like my life and relationship with food. I hope you are having a blessed beginning to this new year.
