Wednesday Weigh-in: Week 25

25 weeks...that is unbelievable.

I have never stuck with a diet and exercise program for that long and feel like I should hold a celebration.  It's my silver diet-versary, y'all!  :)

I couldn't have done it without your support.  Thank you.

However, I have two kiddos with colds and am coordinating a science fair to be held Friday while preparing the boys for another big event on Saturday.  In other words, I have to keep this short.

So...let's get to it, shall we?

I lost 1.6 pounds,
bringing my weight-loss total to 27.8 pounds!

Woo Hoo! 

The ball is rolling in the right direction again.  My Fitness Pal has a lot to do with that.  It just works for me.

I think I found another critical element this week, too.  I had started exercising during the day because it is hard to find the energy for it in the evening as I had been doing for the first few months.  I switched back to exercise before bed and have found that a) I sleep better and b) the pounds shed more easily.  Perhaps it gives my metabolism a boost so that I lose while I sleep.

Not sure.  I'm not a health professional so I can't begin to say that with any confidence.

It would make a neat science fair experiment, though.

Oh fair.  That reminds me of 3,593 other things I need to do.

I will see y'all later!

Please pray for the following:
  1. Continued weight loss and energy to exercise at night.
  2. The Science Fair and my sanity (there seems to be a correlation between the two)
  3. My loved ones facing legal situations- One has been resolved in his favor, praise the Lord!
  4. Friends and missionaries in Japan- all are safe but facing difficult situations.
  5. Decisions M and I are making about next school year.  We need wisdom.
Happy Healthy Living!
