Today has been an incredible day, for a lot of reasons. First, when I weighed this morning the scale registered 190. That means I’ve lost 70lbs since my last baby was born (a year ago) and I only have 40 more to go (assuming my goal is 150, I’m still on the fence about that.)
I also ran my first 5k today, something I’ve been working toward for a little while now, but never expected to be able to do it so soon. Not only did I run a 5k, but I ran it after I’d already done a 20 minute workout with Jillian Michael’s 30 day shred, and had walked 3 miles with Leslie Sansone. That is HUGE for me… A month ago I could hardly BREATHE after finishing one of Jillian’s workouts, and now here I am,
running (ahem, jogging) over three miles after having already worked out for an hour. That’s incredible for me.
But the very biggest thing that has happened today is this:
I am wearing my wedding ring. When I was about 9 months pregnant with my first child, almost 10 years ago, I had to take my wedding ring off and I’ve never been able to wear it, since. I told myself I wouldn’t re size it, that I WOULD fit into it some day, but there have been many, many days since then when I thought it would never happen. But it HAS happened, and I am feeling overwhelmed by the love of God who, when the time was right, promised that He would help me lose the weight. To say that I am thankful doesn’t begin to express how I feel right now. God is amazing.
