What a fun week it has been! My little sister is finally a married woman... She and her honey tied the knot on Saturday! I love my little sis and the last few months of my life have been consumed with making sure that she had the day she deserved. And she did. Now I can get back to some type of "normalcy" in my life.
I bought a book last night called "10 Lessons from a Former Fat Girl" by Amy Parham who is a former contestant on The Biggest Loser. I have gotten through the first chapter and it already has my mind churning! The book is really helping me to dig deep into my spirit and find the empty holes that I seem to fill with food. At the end of each chapter Amy asks you to reflect on the chapter and how it fits into your own life. In the first chapter she asks for you to find a quiet place to pray and meditate on the things that may be keeping you from becoming the fit girl that God wants you to be. I have found that I try to take over in my own life instead of letting God have control. I am making it a goal, and have already been doing this at the suggestion of Leah, to not only pray before each meal, but to pray to God for guidance that I will be eating the meal or snack for the right reason, nourishment, and not for the wrong reason, because I am emotional or bored. I highly recommend this book, and I am not even really into the meat of it yet!
Weight loss this week was not great, but hey, it was a loss! And I did eat some high sodium, heavy foods at my sister's wedding yesterday, so that could also be reflected in this week's weight. And it probably doesn't help that I was still wearing my yoga pants and tank top...
This week's loss, -0.4
