Lent Day 22

It’s weigh day again today and I’m so very excited to share the news with you…

Day 1  – 176 lbs

Day 8 – 172 lbs

Day 15 – 172 lbs

Day 22 – 168 lbs

I have lost 8 lbs in 3 weeks! I’m really excited about that! I had not anticipated that at all. 3 more weeks to go, so we’ll see what happens! I’ve been exercising back to my regular daily routine that I had before the Celebrate Life Summit, so that makes me feel better in general too!

Today’s Menu:

Breakfast: left over homemade oatmeal & blueberries

a.m. snack: Greek yogurt & blueberries

Lunch: 1/2 whole wheat pita pocket with a little cheese, chicken breast, lettuce & Frank’s Red Hot sauce

p.m. snack: a banana

Supper: 1/2 sausage & homemade stuffed potato (little cheese & cream cheese in the mashed potato) with Caesar salad

 
I love this song: Beautiful People – Chris Brown. It’s a great reminder that we are ALL beautiful, no matter what our shape and size. I’m excited about losing weight, but I refuse to obsess about it. I love my body and all it can do! Being able to lift the weights I lift, holding “the plank” for as long as I can and run as far as I can means more to me than any number on the scale. It’s being ALIVE!
