As I begin this post I'm not sure what to say and as many of my close friends know... I'm hardly EVER found speechless. I can't seem to find the right words to sum up these last 6 months. It was 6 months ago to this very day that I stepped into the gym for the first with Sir Chadwick. I was nervous. I was shy. I was hesitant to say the least and I didn't know what to think of him. It was 6 months ago YESTERDAY that I started this blog. So, much has changed in 6 months. In 6 months I've dropped from a size 30/32 pant/dress size to a 26/28, my shirts have gone from a 26/28 to (on a good day) 18/20 and I've lost a bunch of weight! :) More than those stats I've had an opportunity to see God work. He's been faithful. He's been patient. He's been loving. And, He's been ever present in your prayers and most evident in my trainer, Mike Chadwick. I now know that it's not just sheer discipline or love for kinesiology that keeps him serving but it's the love of Christ that abides in his heart. It's that same love that abides in each of you to keep praying and remembering me. Thank you. Thank you for all your well wishes, comments, compliments, encouragements, and prayers! Also, a super duper special thanks to my small group girls! I love you all a buncha super lot! Thank you. I love you!
This picture was taken right before Sir Chadwick and I started working out. It was hot, humid and icky that day but we were all there to celebrate our great friend, Rikki Tai!
This was me yesterday.
Also taken at Rikki Tai's party right before Amber and Margarita fell in the lake! Good times! GREAT laughs! Wonderful Memories!
So, that's what a 53.4lbs weight loss looks like in 6 months! PRAISE JESUS!!!!
