I woke up, let the dogs out, and wandered through the house a bit this morning. I was the only one awake and I was debating about weighing in. I sighed deeply and reluctantly got on the scale. Oh my gosh! What? I stepped off, stepped back on and pushed the button (digital scale). I headed into the dining room where I keep my food/weight log and wrote down the number. I lost 3.6 pounds. Yay!

I did not anticipated a loss. The last time I weighed myself (January 15th), I was back to my heaviest weight of over 400 pounds. Weighing in this morning I can officially say I’m under 400. So today I’m feeling empowered. Which ties in to week one of the Made to Crave online Bible study. I love the word empowered. It brings me visions of strong, intelligent women achieving goals that they and God have set. The few pounds I lost this week has me feeling empowered for what is to come on this journey. I cannot wait.

I know it’s not the Made to Crave verse of the week but it’s one that always makes me aware that no matter what I’m going through all will be okay…
