Weigh In

Last week: 195.5
This Week: 193.3
-2.2 pounds!

Wahoo!!! I'm so excited and I thank Jesus for helping me!! He is my Rock.

So close to the 180's! I can feel it!
Not only did I hit (& pass) 50 pounds, I reached my pre pregnancy weight from Reece!!! Only took me 7.5 months. :)
I have lost 23 pounds since bringing Reece home from the hospital.

I'm technically not at my "lowest". I was 187 when I ran my first half marathon in 2010 right before I got pregnant with Reece. I had gained back 6 pounds sometime between then & when I found out I was pregnant.
During my pregnancy with Reece I was so sick I lost about 7 pounds and got down to 184.
But I don't really count that as my lowest because I was sick & pregnant.
So, when I get below 187, I'll really be happy to pass where I was before. Make sense? Sheesh that was a long babble.
Anyways, exciting news. Tomorrow morning Davey and I are dropping off Shane and Cody at a friends house and we are heading off to Santa Maria Ca for an interview! Very mixed emotions here. We absolutely love Lancaster Baptist Church and would be really sad to leave (again!).

BUT our heart is to start a church in San Luis Obispo Ca (don't think I've mentioned that on here yet, but we've decided this several months ago after praying & taking a trip there). That's our goal anyways and whether God changes our directions that's up to Him. Right now we really feel that's what God wants us to do.

Anyways, the pastor at this church we are interviewing at seemed excited about the fact that we eventually want to start a church in SLO. It's about 40 minuets from SLO. So maybe? Maybe not. We'll see what happens. I'm excited for a night away. :)

Anyways, what's REALLY helping the weight come off is, eating clean (I'm sooo not perfect but I'm trying!) and I'm daily eating coconut oil and organic green tea. Both are suppose to help speed up metabolism.

Heres a pic of the scale so you all believe me :)

And a pic of my Reecie, he's everywhere now! He's just about crawling. His brother put this sticker on him, lol.

I love my boys!!!!

Love, The Curvy Housewife
