Wednesday Wow Factor!

Week 66
Start date: 12/28/11
Initial weight: 220 
Current weight: 197 - MY LOWEST WEIGHT YET!
Total weight loss: 23 pounds! 

Last week's dream focus: Forgive myself for making mistakes - then move on; continue making good food choices; prioritize what MUST be done and what can wait; find/make time to work on Zumba choreography!
What went well: I finally weighed myself and I'm at my lowest since I started... 197!  Satan wants me to focus on how much weight I could've lost by now and that it should be much more than 23 pounds.  But he can shut up!  I'm focused on how many new, good habits I've created and how many times I've picked myself up when I've stumbled.  Frankly, I'm still rockin' it because I continue to get closer to my dream every day.  So put that in your book, Beelz.
I used birthday money to buy some new clothes as the majority of mine are so huge I can't keep them on my body!  I donated six trash bags of clothing... like a serious purge.  It felt great!
Challenges:  Pain.  I've been in so much pain this week and haven't been able to go to the gym or my favorite Zumba classes.  Remember last summer when I was in so much pain I couldn't work out for months, then had surgery for stage three endometriosis?  It's a similar kind of pain, but it's highly unlikely that it's more endo.  I've taken Lupron shots since August to give it time to heal and not grow back, so I'm not certain what's causing it. 
After going to the doctor Monday, I wasn't satisfied at all with his diagnosis.  I'm getting a second opinion.  I know my body and I don't have a good feeling about something.  I'm trusting God to place me with the right medical staff and reveal the true issue.  I know He'll take care of my needs and won't let me down.  Everything that happens in my life is part of my story.  I truly believe if my adversity can help someone else through their challenges, it's worth it!
This week's dream focus:  Keep moving forward; continue making good food choices; manage the pain and don't do more than I can handle; don't put pressure on myself to learn Zumba choreography... it will all happen in the right timing.
