woooooohoooooooo!

I have good news! After moaning and groaning all week long. After fighting God all morning long to not weigh in. I finally decided to get my buns out of bed and over to Weight Watchers. Sir Chadwick gave me the ok to NOT weigh in and believe me I had every intention of staying in bed but the nudge woke me up. So, at 10:30am I round the stairs to Weight Watchers and open the door to face my week.

I step on the scale only find 2.6lbs less of myself!

Do you know what that means?!?!

I've lost a total of 50.8 lbs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Finally after weeks and weeks of 0.4lbs and 0.8lbs weight losses and expecting to reach a 50lbs weight loss goal by January 1st it's finally here on Saturday, January 19th! The second I heard the news I started to cry. I was so frustrated with trying so hard. I'm sure y'all could tell I was frustrated by my most recent posts. All I can say is that I'm so pleased it's finally here!

I couldn't wait to call Sir Chadwick. As I reached for my phone I noticed that my father was calling. He was able to get the first news. Earlier this week I called him in tears. One morning before work I found myself lost. Almost hopeless. I cried to my dad that I wasn't sure how I could ever be able to continue this journey and that I was afraid of letting everyone down. He instantly rebuked me, followed it with sweet words of encouragement then lead us into prayer. I'm so thankful for Godly parents.

Sir Chadwick was proud. When he answered the phone he almost sounded ready to hear good news. How could he have known? Well, I guess he must've had a good idea because he kicked my butt this week. What would I do without him? He's truly a God send.

I can't thank y'all enough for all your prayers and sweet words this week. Until the next post! Adios.

Marcy, I'm so proud of you girl! I admire your strength and humbleness in getting up every morning to work out. You will always be your hardest critic...that's just how life rolls. However, your friends are your biggest cheerleaders. You're the best!! Congrats on turning the corner to 50!
