Praise God Almighty, I was one pound away from the weight I was the day I found out I was pregnant with Marie!
That is a total of 34lbs in 6 months.
I'm very excited about that victory, but also a little frustrated at myself because I know I could have hit that weight and even lower if I hadn't been slacking so much in the last few weeks. It really is completely the grace of God that got me where I am. I have to daily... no, moment by moment, deny myself and be filled with the Holy Spirit.
I fail... a lot.
My next goal is to reach the weight I was on our wedding day by Kempton's first birthday (August 7). That is only 5-6 pounds away! I would truly appreciate prayer to have continuous victory over my struggle with the sin of overeating/emotional-eating/careless-eating.
Now for what you all really want... (unedited) pictures! I'll tell you, this is hard for me! I have desperately avoided the camera for almost 5 years. Please be kind.
The day before Kempton was born...
Here is a middle-of-the-process pic...
I've also had lots of support from amazing family and friends. Thank you!!
Look for the final update in August!
