Follow Me Friday! Week 17! You'll never believe what I've accomplished!



This week I hit a major milestone in my life!
I lost 1.4 lbs this week
making my total 52.5 lbs!

I am sure you are wondering
"what is this major milestone she is talking about?"

I, for the first time in my married life,
actually weigh less than my husband!!

From the time I married him
I have always weighed more than him.
He has always loved me
and made me feel so good about myself.
But there is something
that messes with something deep in 
my sub-conscience 
that really struggles with the fact
that I weigh more than him.

I have been so grateful 
that he joined me on this weight loss journey.
He didn't have much to lose 
and the diet I chose to do was so strict.
But he was willing to sacrifice
and do this with me
and that has made such a difference in my success.

He started at 188.2.
Once he hit 170 he started 
into the 3rd phase of the Dukan Diet
where you start adding back in foods.

He has continued to 
lose weight during this phase.
At the end of week 15,
he weighed 162.7.
When I weighed in at week 16,
I was 162.9.
I was so excited,
he couldn't keep losing!
I might of passed him.
He got on the scale for his 16th week weigh in
and he had lost again!
162.2!

I was literally mad!
I might have thrown a little kid tantrum!
ALL I WANTED WAS TO PASS HIM!!
Is that too much to ask!
I just want to weigh less than my husband.
He chuckled at me!
I might have even cried about it!
I was so close,
but not there yet!

Until week 17.
He stayed the same 162.2
and I dropped down to 161.5!
I can't promise that 
this next week he won't lose more and 
pass me up again!
But for this one week,
I am jumping for joy
because I feel so overjoyed
with the fact that I weigh less than him.

Maybe it makes me feel more
feminine
or dainty
or sexy
or whatever!
I really don't know.
But I did it!

And I will keep going!
No stopping yet!
Keep on keeping on!

I hope you are having a great week
and finding you are 
stronger than you know!
Because you are.
We each have within us
strength that can be tapped into!
We are amazing!
Don't you forget it!


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
