An account of an obese woman's weight loss journey.
Sunday, July 24, 2011
I'm happy to report a 2.5 lb weight loss this week. Whoop! Whoop! I'm always amazed at how effective the short term goals are. This means I weigh 188 lbs. The 180's!! I know I haven't seen these since my sophomore year of high school.
A woman stopped me at Costco today and asked if I lead worship at Westside Church. I said, "I used to." Her mouth dropped and she said, "You look fantastic." I told her I have lost 114.5 lbs so far. She was so impressed. Then I ran into someone I haven't seen for a little over a year. I had to tell her who I was. It's so fun to have to do that; it's a strange and wonderful place to be.
So don't be shy if you think you see me out and about. Come and say hi, it doesn't offend me to have to say, "Yes, it's me." :)
