Love Per Square Inch

There's less of me to love!
In the last 8 days, I have lost 5 1/2 inches.
WooHoo!
Of all the times in my life where no one would hold it against me to hit the chocolate or indulge in some way, I'm not doing it. I'm not emotional eating. I'm just eating healthy food whenever I do eat and walking or going to the gym.
So I have this theory.
If there is less of me to love, then the same amount of love is divided by less square inches, which means the love per square inch ratio is higher.
(twinkly eyed smile)
Okay.
That's as much math as you'll hear on this blog.
Love y'all,
Shula

Have you lost that many inches in 8 days or 8 weeks? 8 days doesn't quite sound physically possible so I thought maybe it was a typo.

Either way, I think what you are doing is a great way to go, ie. eating a wide variety of healthy foods, exercising moderately, and above all striving to manage your emotions with God's help.

Thanks for the encouragement, because those are some of the same things that I have come to realize make a real difference.

8 days. measured by my trainer at the gym. maybe crying is cardio exercise? I know I had zero appetite and when I ate I ate healthy food. this is not the preferred way to lose weight but i see it as the silver lining to a cloud of grief.

I'm sorry to hear you are also going through troubled times. *hug* I've also been in a dark cloud since the middle of December and lost 10 pounds in 10 days...I felt the same way, nervous stomach, no apetite, and still working out to help dispell the grief (kickboxing is great!)

I'm praying that we both feel His peace, grace, and enduring love!

I am glad for you! Obviously, it won't always be so dramatic every time you step on the scale, but keep working.

You have my prayers!
