WLW: Accomplishments and Getting Back on Track

Please visit Alicia at Confessions of a Snowflake to join in the sharing of your weight loss journey.
The combination of getting sick, attending my husband’s playoff games, and fulfilling church and family obligations has led to a pretty bad week where my weight loss is concerned. I didn’t exercise once, I didn’t watch my diet as closely as I should have, and I certainly didn’t drink enough water. That being said, while the number on my scale didn’t budge at all this week, I am still proud of the small accomplishments that I have achieved since beginning this new weight loss journey:

~ I have gone down a pants size.
~ I can climb four flights of stairs without too much struggle.
~ My wedding ring is lose again.
~ With more energy, I don’t have to hit the snooze button so many times in the morning.
~ My daily cravings for a café mocha or two have drastically subsided.

Hopefully I can get back on track starting today. I have given up too many times in the past, but this time, I'm really hoping it will be different. This time, my eyes are focused on the Lord. The weight loss journey will still be difficult (it's already proving to be), but I know that if I stick with it, the rewards will be so great.

No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. Hebrews 12:11 (NIV)


  1. Way to go, Carey! I love your positive perspective on things. Life often doesn't make it easy, but the key is to not get negative, and to just keep trying.
