Friday Wow Factor!

Week 61
Start date: 12/28/11
Initial weight: 220
Current weight: 198 (Last weigh-in 2/13/13)
Total weight loss: 22 pounds! I'm back to my pre-surgery weight!

Last week's dream focus: Keep my eyes on my dream - doing what I must to overcome this adversity; trust in God's timing, remembering this is all happening for a reason and there's some lesson to be learned; and eat better than the week before - making good choices when dining out!
What went well: I danced an AWESOME Zumba class Tuesday and tried the new WERQ class Monday... it was SO FUN!  I really worked it out and could feel it the next day or two.  (Starting to love that!)  I walked into Zumba on Tuesday as the instructor of 'Butts & Guts' was about to leave the class.  She looked at me and said "Are you the Zumba instructor?"  I replied "Oh my gosh, no, but thank you for thinking that!  I'm going to be trained to teach Zumba in a couple of weeks!"  It made me feel great that she would even think that and it confirmed that I'm definitely supposed to make it happens.
My adversity is getting better!  God has made a way were it seemed there was no way!  I'm not completely clear of stress or hard times, but I have so much faith that He's delivering me and leading me towards my dreams.  I'm glad I continued trusting Him.  I'm glad I kept my eyes focused on Him when it felt like the ground was crumbling beneath me. 
Challenges:  Although the adversity has decreased, I must keep my focus on God and His plan.  Satan has already begun throwing darts of fear, insecurity, and inferiority at me... like INSTANTLY. 
I'm already reminding him he has NO authority over me.  I'm not going to focus on the negative.  I'm not going to worry about what might happen.  I'm not going to doubt my abilities.  I'm trusting God's plan for me because whatever does happen IS SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN!
This week's dream focus: Keep my eyes on God and His plan for me, trusting that He knows what I need and when I need it; continue eating well - making smart choices when dining out (a constant struggle); work out as much as possible; and BELIEVE THAT GOD MAKES ALL THING WORK TOGETHER FOR MY GOOD!!!  (Romans 8:28)
