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

Matt = 197 (3 pounds lost)
Me = 143 (4 pounds lost)

We are both disappointed though. I know that's crazy so let me explain why. Last week, I think it was Thursday, we both couldn't wait any longer and we got on the scale and "snuck" a weigh-in in just to see if we were making progress. Our #'s that day were 195 and 142. We were ELATED! So, we were thinking that "Gosh, come Monday our #'s will be REALLY good" So, when we got on today for our "official" weigh day and our #'s had gone back up some...well, we couldn't help but be a little disappointed, even though together, we are 7 pounds lighter...which is nothing but an accomplishment, I believe.

Hooray! 7 days down...just 83 to go!

Jen and Matt - you guys rock! keep up the great work. I know you're a little disappointed that it's not the numbers you had a few days ago, but it's still a loss, right?

I've been wondering how you guys are feeling w/ these intense workouts and new eating plan? Has your energy chagned at all or your appetite?

Keep up the good work, and you'll see even lower numbers on the scale next time. (The diet makes a huge difference doesn't it). :)
