those blasted numbers…

I have received quite a few emails asking how I am doing with my LSC’11
( If you are not aware what that is see my previous post here
Here is where I am at with each item right now…
  1. Weight loss…30lbs to be exactdown 1.1lb ha! those cookies are NOT helping!
  2. Spend more time on daily devotionals2-3 out 5 mornings, not as often as I hoped but more intentional when I do.
  3. Say no to at least 3 people – not exactly, I joined a new Bible study called “becoming a woman of simplicity” kind of Ironic I think! 
  4. Read 3 educational books – Not so much! It’s only January!
  5. Blog at least 3-4 times a week – Yes doing great!
  6. Be more intentional with keeping in contact with friends – 3 play-dates this week with 3 different groups of friends! Yeah for friends!
  7. Pray out loud more often – doing better but need to be more consistent
  8. Pray out loud in public – I shared my testimony in church, does that count?
  9. Plan an annual girls weekend away – CHECK and SO excited for this!
  10. Sell 30% of the crafts I create – yeah, not so much, I am trying though, I promise!
Okay, so today I wanted to dig a little bit deeper on #1 Weight loss…30lbs to be exact.
I have changed my goal to lose 22 pounds in 6 months. I thought this would be little more tangible and my Wii would not let me make a higher goal.  As I stated above I am not doing too well on this goal. I have only lost 1.1 pound since Jan 10th! I guess it’s better than a gain! 
Today I am going to share with something that is very personal. Not quite as hard as the Who am I post but close.  Today I am going to share with you numbers. Yes that’s right, the actual numbers on the scale, not the ones that I wish were my numbers but the ones that really are. The ones that tell you how much I weigh and my BMI! 
No need to talk more, time to just do it…
this is showing my BMI from today!
That’s “Tina”. she is my Mii character. It’s sad how much we truly look alike. 
Since I lost the 1.1 pounds I am not Longer “overweight” just right on the border!

my weight!
I was actually shocked because I thought it was going to be higher! I’ll take it!


Thanks for taking these very intimate steps with me. I am hoping to show you better numbers next week! I’ll call it Fat Friday, my weekly weighs in!

I will be posting my Friday Etsy finds later today! stay tuned!
