As of my 18-month weigh-in on December 16th, for the month I lost 11.4 pounds which took me to a grand total of down 151.20 pounds in 18 months!
I had a goal of reaching 150 pounds lost by the 18-month point, so I was really excited to see that I had exceeded it! I cheered when I saw the number on the scale, and then burst into tears. My sweet husband hugged me and kept telling me over and over again how proud of me he was. It was definitely a good morning!
Every time I look at the numbers and see where I'm at, compared to where I've come from, I can't help but praise God for the changes He has helped me make in my life. No, I cannot say that it has always been easy, because change rarely is simple, but I can honestly say it has been easier than I ever imagined it would be, and difficult or not, it has always been good and well worth the effort!
"For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength"
Philippians 4:13, NLT
