Gaining Money For Losing Weight: Results Are In...

We had our family competition weigh in this morning. The results are a little to my surprise as to how everyone did. I'm very proud of my family for all that we lost. We lost a total of 17 lbs. all together. This is how everyone individually did:

My mom lost 2lbs.

My Brother lost 2 lbs.

My sister lost 4 lbs.

And I lost 9 lbs.
Since I was the biggest loser for this week, I went home with this week's cash pot!!

I am so excited to have this kind of loss this week. I know that I will plateau along this journey. I'm not expecting these kinds of results every week. I'm expecting to have my up weeks and my down weeks. This week however has been drastic changes to my body that I haven't made before. I'm not on any special diet per say, just an overall transformation in eating habits and exercise. I do want to give credit where it is due and that is sincerely to my Lord! I have asked Him to help me be strong in disciplining myself this week during this transition. He has surely given me the strength to avoid certain obstacles and maintain my personal goals for this week. That was accomplished because of Him!!

I strongly believe that personal goals cannot be accomplished without prayer!


for me this week!
