Follow Me Friday! Week 7 Weigh In! Still Going Strong!


Another week down
and I am still going strong.

You know
I have spent the last 10 years
blaming my inability to lose weight
on my Hashimoto's
which is an autoimmune disease of the thyroid.
I've been on meds for 9 years
and have struggled with losing weight.

But I am doing it now!!

This week I lost
1.5 lbs!!


27.8 lbs in 7 weeks is awesome!
I can feel the difference in my body.
I have more energy.
It is easier to work out at Jazzercise
at a high intensity level!
I feel less sleepy!
How I am feeling is just as important
and the inches that I am losing!

Today really is a momentous day!
I am down 
100.8 lbs
from my highest weight of 286!! 

Can I just tell you that I am bouncing around
like a little kid hopped up on sugar!

I feel like I have accomplished an amazing thing!
And I am not done!

I appreciate all the messages 
of support and encouragement that I get.
As well as messages from those
who struggle with their weight, just like me!
We can do this!
I am here for your support
just like you are for me!!

Decide on the weight loss plan you want to use
and then let's support each other.
Together, we can reach our goals!

i will

i am strong
i can take time for me, that is okay
i am beautiful, inside and out
i CAN find time to eat a healthy balanced diet
i am not less of a person if my house is messy
i can do anything i put my mind to

Thank you so much Laureen!!! Your words are so kind! I had a trainer once who always said 'you are strong, you can do this'. I am trying to apply that to all areas of my life! Strong!!
