This blog was made to have a specific outlet for my weight-loss journey [as I’m right in the midst of it] and connect with others working toward similar goals. I will be posting my progress as well as tidbits I’ve found helpful along the way. [Posts about random things and life are just an added bonus!]
The weight-loss tools I’m using include counting calories with MyFitnessPal [on my iPhone], becoming a runner, and being inspired by other weight-loss/maintenance bloggers like Runs for Cookies. Above all, I have realized it’s God’s power in my weakness that makes me strong and able to exercise self-control. [Fruit of the Spirit, woo!] Also, the ongoing love, encouragement, and support from family and friends are great points of motivation! My goal weight is 135lbs – originally aimed for November of 2013, but giving myself more time…:)
Total Loss So Far: 58.4lbs
