Happy Fat Tuesday!
But today on "Fat Tuesday", I am feeling slimmer! I am finally starting to feel the fruits of my labor and my prayers answered in my weight loss journey. The Lord has blessed me so much and answered my prayers over the last few months of my desire for HIS help to lose this weight! If you remember back in December, I posted this post on my plan to lose weight. I started right after Halloween. I have read that it takes 4 weeks for you to notice the weight loss, 8 weeks for your friends and family, and 12 weeks for everyone else. This past week, 14 weeks later, I have been bombarded with everyone telling me they can tell! Yall, I was starting to get discouraged. Heck, I was not even being that diligent with my food choices and was starting to feel myself slipping, but I prayed hard for Him to not let me fall off like I always do... and then everything changed and I cannot tell yall how grateful I am!!! I am not posting these pics for compliments and please don't see this as bragging, I just want yall to feel like I do!!
Yall. Trust in the Lord, He will always fulfill your prayers, maybe not on your timing, and maybe not what you are even asking, but He is listening and will aswer!
This is my before and after picture!! The left is Halloween and the right is the weekend before last!
I was traveling last week and I thought I would post OOTD pics since I was getting dressed up everyday :)...I did not even see the difference until the best friends a girl could ask for told me they could see a huge difference!
I was home on Friday and was taking my usual picture of my outfit to survey it :)...and Bree totally photobombed it, dancing in the background!!
I feel great. But you know what? Yeah, I feel great because I am not dying in my jeans or because I love the smaller size. I feel mostly great because I can feel the Lord shining through me and giving me this opportunity to tell yall all about it! Don't get on the Diet Train, get on the LORD'S TRAIN!!
Disclaimer: I feel funny posting this and really hope yall see this as encouragement and not me bragging. I am much more comfortable bragging about these three :)
