1 lb down and counting!!

Well It's official- my first weigh in at school this morning. I was down 1 pound - which is definitely better than none, so I'm pleased. Actually not to brag or boast but to be proud of is that I have lost 8 pounds since January 1st- it's just this week that I started with the weighing in group at school. I've also been praying to God that I am committed to this and I'm very thankful for all the support that he gives and all my friends and family give. It's amazing. This weekend may be a challenge though as we are going to Atlanta and that means a lot of eating out. I know what is right and wrong and so therefore I know I can hopefully stay on track.
Speaking of Atlanta, we are heading there because my oldest daughter, Rachel (11 years old) is performing at the Georgia Performing Arts Center with the All State Chorus. She was one of just three people chosen from her school to go this year! This is her 2nd year in a row to be honored with the title of All State Chorus student and we are very,very proud of her. She does have a beautiful voice and God is allowing her to use it and share with others (thousands!!!!! this weekend). Hopefully I'll have lots of photos to post on Monday. Until then, everyone have a fabulous weekend!!

Congratulations! That is wonderful! Keep going strong and remember if you slip up you just start again, don't give up. I'm very proud of you and as equally proud of Rachel, she has a beautiful voice and I know she'll go far with it! Love you! Mom
