Weight Watchers- Week Two

I am happy to report that week two went EXTREMELY well! In fact I have lost a grand total of 5lbs, and let me tell you what, I am giving God all the glory. This process is humbling my heart in so may ways and showing me that I can do NOTHING without Christ. He is my strength in this battle, and I am seeing a spiritual change along with a physical one!

That being said, here is a look at this week's stats!

Starting Weight: 1*3 lbs

Current Weight: 1*8 lbs

Pounds Lost This Week: 4lbs

Total Pounds Lost: 5lbs

Best Moment: Getting my first "accomplishment" sticker at the meeting!!

Worst Moment: Figuring out that my points carry over starting on Sundays...oops!

What I Miss: Not much! Weight Watcher's focuses on portion control rather than deprivation. But I have realized there are more filling foods than chips, so I've missed snacking on those.

Overview: This was a good week on so many levels. Obviously because I lost four more pounds and made it over my first hurdle. I was also able to finally hit the 15 minute mark on my first mile and slightly over that on my second.

This week at our meeting we talked about setting a big goal along with several mini ones. I'm praying a lot about my final goal. I know that sounds funny, but for me this journey isn't just about being skinny again. It's also about breaking free from the Stronghold of food in my life. Right now that looks like taking control and a living healthy lifestyle, but at the other end of the spectrum is hyper-awareness of health the Stronghold of food obsession. I want to be free and so I am asking God for direction in that realm.

My mini goal is to lose 5 pounds each month which is in the healthy range for weight loss. Additionally, I want to increase my workout intensity each month. For October, I will continue walking one mile, but the second mile will be on the elliptical. I also plan to add upper body weight lifting three days a week.

I am so excited about this new journey and support I have received. And I am praising God for each new milestone!!


  1. Awesome!! Hubby is doing Weight Watchers, which means I am unofficially doing it too! If you have any great (and easy!) recipes please send them my way!

A New Decade

Happy 2020, everyone!  I know I'm a month and a half behind, but ya'll, January was brutal!  Not brutal in a tragic kind of way but in a "life will wear you out" kind of way. It started off with the flu...times three!  Eric, Ellie and I had Flu B and missed the first week back to school and work.  Then Eli was diagnosed with Flu A two weeks later.  Thankfully, my in-laws stepped in to help so that we didn't have to miss any more time at work. On top of the sickness, we listed our house for sale. The work it takes getting ready for market is just crazy. But we also have people coming in and out of our home at all hours and it's just kinda overwhelming. Plus, we are finalizing everything with the builder. In full transparency, working with the builder has been the easiest part! Maybe I'll do a little update on the whole building process later this week.  Now that the dust has settled on 2020, I'm going to try my very hardest to keep this litt

Mother's Day Memories

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.  I want to start by saying that my heart and prayers go out to the "Mommies in Waiting" and to those who are missing their Momma on this special day.  You are not forgotten. We started Mother's Day at church with our crew, and we were lucky enough to be in the nursery.  We let Eli tag along, and he helped facility "Derby Races" around the table while the kids were on riding toys.  It was a hoot!  We also made cards for the mommies. We had some leftovers at home for lunch and then I spent some time laying out while Eric worked on the pool.  It was almost 90 degrees and the perfect way to relax on my special day! Eric made me a shrimp boil for dinner, and we took a family trip to Dairy Queen.  They also have presents coming later this week for me.  Basically, they are awesome!

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Have I ever told you that Eli loves sports?  Ha!  I look back at him with baseballs and basketballs at 18 months old ,and it blows my mind that he's still so interested.   The thing is, he doesn't discriminate.  Baseball, basketball, football, name it, we play it! Not only do we play sports all day, we also have to watch certain videos on Youtube.   We watch "Boys of Fall," while wearing a football helmet. We watch Alabama's "Cheap Seats,"  John Fogerty's"Centerfield," and Kenny Rogers,  "The Greatest" while holding a bat, carrying a ball, and wearing a batting helmet. And now, thanks to Space Jam, we have to listen to the movie sound track while shooting hoops!  That's a blast from the past! He hasn't found a song about soccer or golf...YET! And with all that playing, who has time to run inside for a potty break?  Not this boy! I never thought
