Day 8 - Journey (Weigh In)

Well I got up this morning feeling a little anxious. I had felt great but also felt a tad guilty. I felt that my portions a few times could have been smaller. But overall I was ready for anything the scale had to say to me. After finishing my morning EMzone workout with a 15 minute weight training, I headed to the locker room. I started toward the scale with a couple butterflies twirling about in my stomach. It was the moment of truth. Does all the hard work pay off? Was it a waste of time? Could I have done more? Will I regret even starting this thing? I stepped to the scale, remembering my previous week experience and feeling a little bummed out, and leaped up in faith. Well, all those questions and worries came SCREAMING to a stop. To my delightful surprise, my eyes gave me a window into a great future. I had lost 12lbs this week. Yes, 12lbs in the first week. I didn't kill myself at the gym. I didn't starve myself. I just followed a smart plan and STUCK to it. Thank you Lord. I am excited about week 2 and on. I know I will reach my goal.
I am on my way. Just letting everyone know... you can do it too. I believe in you!

My 12lb loss is brought to you by and
