This is exactly how I felt this morning upon stepping on my scale for the first time since last Monday... I lost 5.5 pounds!! Yipee! I am so excited to see the scale moving down again! For those of you that I haven't shared this with, Frank and I started a new and healthy way of eating last week, together! I am so happy to have him beside me in this journey :) He has never dieted before as opposed to me who has tried and failed at them all. He is so supportive and I am so blessed to have him love me just as I am no matter what my size and shape may be. We aren't on this to get to be the next Brad and Angelina (although they are beautiful and if there were such a plan to make me look like her, I probably would do it, LOL) but we are on this to get healthy and to help stop some of the body aches and pains that we are getting from getting older and unfortunatly heavier.

So, our journey had begun and we are doing pretty good. We did have a couple of weak moments and did have a couple of "cheats" over the weekend, but all in all, I am really happy with my first week and am right back at it again this morning. Mondays will be my accountablilty day on my blog, so keep checking in to see how we are doing! One of the things that I am doing this time, that I haven't in the past is being accountable, first to myself and to God, as I know that this body isn't mine. It is His and His temple and I need to do a better job at keeping it healthy. Second to Frank and my BFF, nothing hidden between us :) Third, on my blog where you all can read the ups and I know the downs that will come on this journey, but hey at least we're working on it, right?
Hugs from a 5.5lb smaller person this Monday :) :) :)
