Weigh In-Week 5 and some thoughts

Yesterday was an incredible test. It was a long hard day. I battled thoughts all day long. Thoughts like "You have too much weight too lose. You'll never be able to get it all off. Its going to take too long. You won't be able to stick to the way of eating you've chosen. One day of binging on sweets won't hurt you." I could go on and on.

These were lies from satan.

I went to Maurices and tried on clothes. That was a big mistake. Somehow I felt smaller than I am. I guess I thought that 12 pounds would have shown more. I was so disappointed and felt so overwhelmed and so far away from goal.

I almost gave in. I almost ate chocolate brownies. While I know that one wouldn't have hurt me I would not have stopped at one. I would have eaten every single one.

I resisted.

I praise you sweet Jesus for strengthening me during this trial.

Today when I woke up I felt much better. Its the later part of the days that are so hard for me.

I weighed and I've lost another pound. I'm down to 185. That is 13 pounds in 5 weeks and I'm truly NOT disappointed with those results. I keep telling myself that this is a process, a slow one, I didn't get this way over night and I won't drop it all over night.

I didn't get to exercise as much as I would have because of the weather. The snow that came in stopped 4 classes I had planned on attending. I still managed 2 classes and I have another today. So three in one week isn't too bad.

I'm doing excellent on my water intake, even with a sinus infection and that is tough because a good cold diet coke would break this stuff up but I'm not giving in.

I'm doing well with my low carb eating.

I really really appreciate your prayers ladies. Battling the weight is a hard journey.
