I’m so extremely happy and blessed this morning! I just won a contest with my sister yesterday, where I lost the most percentage of weight! My starting weight was 444lbs and yesterday I weighed in at 420lbs!! AMAZING! She is 150 lbs lighter than me so I was very concerned about this contest being based on percentages verses pounds lost! She could have lost 12 lbs and beat me! But she didn’t and I walked away with the 50dollar prize!!
It’s bittersweet finally getting down to 420lbs. I feel like I’m so close to finally getting into the 300′s. However, I get a little sad when I think that it’s taken me over a year to lose 50lbs! I know, I know, be happy with that, BUT…this has lit a fire up under my butt!! I can’t let life just keep passing me by! It’s sad that it took a contest for money to make me eat right and stick with juicing! The thought of having to pay her fifty dollars when things are already tight for my family gave me laser focus! I want to have that kind of focus every day though! This truly is a wake up call for me! I promise myself that it will not take me a year to lose another 50lbs! I am going to show all of the people who criticize me for being too dramatic, taking so long to lose weight, etc, that this is real life and that eventually with hard work and determination and the will to continue fighting for the life God intended for me to have, I will OVERCOME this lifelong bondage of fat! Hallelujah!!
