Hello and welcome to the December 10th weigh in post. It has been an emotional last few days around here. Things have changed that really make me think about what is important in life. I will discuss that a bit more but for now, here are the numbers.

Since the prior weigh in just five short days ago, I have lost exactly one pound. My current weight is 350 pounds even. My total weight loss is now closing in on eight (7.8) pounds.

Priorities! I probably can't share too many of the details but a friend of mine recently had a new born baby placed with her to foster. I mean a new born baby! This baby is so beautiful and it honestly breaks my heart to think about an innocent child that needs to be loved and not finding that in his biological parents. The baby did nothing wrong!

Maybe it seems like I am passing judgment on the parents. I remember when my two girls were born. You can go ahead and take my man card if this makes me a baby but I was so proud the day my girls were born. I felt like no matter what I how successful I may be in life, these two girls will always be my crowning achievement.

Then I ask myself, what am I doing today to show my girls that they are my world? Am I eating healthy so that I can see them get married and have children of their own? Have I made this weight loss journey enough of a priority or am I coasting? I am afraid that the answer is coasting and so I need to adjust my priorities. This needs to happen!

I love hearing from those of you that check in with me. Thank you. It is encouraging to know that I am not alone. We can get this done if we stay focused and keep our priorities as we head into the holiday season. The next weigh in will occur on December 15th. Take care my friends and stay safe! Goodbye.
