Philippians 3:12-14 (The Message Bible)

I'm not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don't get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I've got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I'm off and running, and I'm not turning back.

Weigh-Day (mid week)

Well, Since Monday was Memorial Day...we forgot to do our weigh in. We decided to weigh this morning instead and see where we are.
Matt weighed 190!!! Which means he's lost a total of 10 pounds now!
I weighed 139!!! HALLELUJAH!!! That means I am down by 8 pounds....but the fact that my first two numbers are a 13_ makes me super-dooper excited. It's been a long, long time since I've been under 140. I am only 9 pounds from my goal weight now....which is weird. Kind of bittersweet. I am starting to think that 9 pounds isn't going to be enough. I still have a loooooooong way to go before my body is in the kind of shape I am expecting after this program...and I'm not sure 9 pounds is going to make that kind of difference. Anyway, no biggie---I'll just keep doing what I'm doing and see where that takes me! It's not all about the number on the scale...that much I KNOW. It's WAY more important to look and feel great than to have a 115 on the scale. (I think anyway! 115 sure would be awesome! :o)

WOO-HOO!!! I bet you feel GREAT!!!
Girl, don't worry about the numbers or your "goal number". You can totally transform your body, and not change the weight on the scale by much at all.
I'm not even down to 115, that is a very low number especially if your going to have very much muscle. Since I joined the gym and started working out seriously with weights in February, I've been putting on muscle and my body has changed, but the scale still says the same number it said when I started, 124. But my clothes fit better, I have less body fat, and a lot more muscle tone. So don't obsess over the number on the scale...just focus on losing body fat and gaining muscle, no matter what that final number may be. :)
Love ya girlfriend!!! I am SO PROUD of YOU!!!!!!!!!

Congrats! See, you're doing it! I knew you could. I have to agree with Kandy - it's not so much the number that's important as how your body is changing and how you feel. Keep it up!
