Losing "more" than half of me

Losing "more" than half of me
This time it's really going to happen.. I am going to lose half of myself, or should I now say "more than half of myself?"

I need prayer!

So, I have been on hiatus.. as I'm sure you've noticed.  Today was the first time I've worked out in two weeks.  Not a good thing.  And I have been eating HORRIBLY!  I don't know exactly how I got here.. but I don't like it one bit.

The good news is I haven't gained any weight.  I am still at 288.  That's a total of 44 pounds lost.  So I am now looking to my next goal.. getting under 275 pounds.  That's 14 pounds away.  I'm hoping to get there by the end of July.  I need something to get me back on track.  Maybe this will help.

I do have a request from you.. please pray for me.  I need God's strength, power, and stamina to get back on this journey.  I don't know how I got lost, but I obviously have.  I have been using food again to fill some hole inside me.  I guess that's when I should be turning to God for my comfort.

Please also pray that I can figure out what's causing me to get off the weight loss path, so I won't get sidetracked again.

I've reached the 40 pound mark

I'd hoped to get here a little sooner.. but I took a couple of weeks off the weight loss journey.  So, I'm doing pretty good.  Life got really busy, and I got a little stressed, so I gave in to my food cravings.  But not all the time, so I was able to maintain.  I was pretty pleased with that.

I hopped back on the wagon this week.. and I lost another 3 pounds.  So that brings my total weight loss to 40 pounds.  I'm very happy and have set a new mini-goal to get me motivated again.  I want to lose 10 pounds in June.  I'm down 3 pounds already, so just 7 to go.

I don't have a whole lot else to say today, so I'll leave it at that.  Please pray for me to get out of my slump, and get back in the swing of things.  I'll take new pictures again at the end of the month, and take new measurements.
