Friday Weigh-In

Today is the day i set aside to weigh-in. In my goals and attempts to loose weight i found myself frustrated by weighing in everyday and seeing the scale ping-pong like a heart monitor!
(i dont know about you- but i like to see results: especially if i am working hard to change things!)
Well, i have to say that i am now "overweight"!! i have never been so happy to be labeled overweight in my life! Before you start thinking i need to be admitted to the phsyc ward, let me fill you in. . . i dont own a scale- i have wii Fit. If you have ever used said program you know that you can customize the mii to look just like you: eye color, height, hair and so forth and with the fit program you can even match the weight that you are carrying! Sounds exciting doesnt it?! i am a visual person and to step on that "scale" and watch my little mii go from normal to obese was depressing! The 'dun-dun-dun' music didnt help nor did the animated scale going "That's obese!" Every time you weigh-in and your mii swells with the poundage, her face grows sad as she looks down at her body- something like this....

*photo credit goes to bing images- not my actual mii
For almost the last year now my mii has done this. The scale has taunted the "Thats obese" obviousness and would turn it off discouraged.
Since i started THM - i am down about 5 lbs. (and a total of 10 lbs since before Thanksgiving.) It is not going as fast as some other success stories, but i dont have 100's of pounds to shed. i am content with progress- which leads me back to being happy to being overweight! This morning marked the slip into the category of overweight!!! No longer obese, and that much closer to healthy!
Whereas i do have a goal weight in mind, i told my Mr.J that if i start to look unhealthy or funny on my journey there, i will stop and maintain that weight. Ultimately i want to glorify God with a healthy body and please my man! That means more than a number on a scale or a pant size! (which is part of what i have learned- how to do those things with where i am, but the challenge to be healthy and the best i can be could not go unanswered! This is something i needed to do!)
AND- i am on my way there!!

Keep going! Before long you'll be in the most ideal shape ever! :) It's encouraging to see others take care of their body as though it were the temple of the Lord...wait, it is! "Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?" 1 Corinthians 6:19
