Breakthrough! Day 67

Paula and Robbie, 12-29-12

Robbie Iobst and her release, Joy Dance

Talk about break-through!

Today I went to a fabulous celebration of my friend Robbie Iobst and her new book, Joy Dance. It was a great turn-out, and everyone was happy. You can’t be around Robbie without feeling cheerful, and seeing her all lit up made us glow right along with her.

But here’s the personal break-through. People started snapping pictures as they always do at these things, and I knew they would end up on facebook. I stood smiling when it dawned on me that I no longer have to twist my head weird angles to try and de-emphasize my double chin because I no longer HAVE a double chin!! And while I still have weight to lose, those pictures my friends posted to facebook were no longer embarrassing moment pictures!! I actually looked pretty dern good in some of them. THAT was an amazing feeling.                                                     ~December 29, 2013

Real Time Update:

On December 29th, Robbie whispered to me that she, too was losing weight. She announced on fb last week that she is down 40 pounds! Go Robbie!!! Seeing her success makes me want to keep on keepin’ on! She’s an inspiration.

What about you?

What (or who?) inspires you on your weight loss journey?

      We’re living it together, Robbie. So happy for you and all the wonderful movement in your life–your books, your weight–all of it. And I devoured Joy Dance. Thank you for sharing such a well-written, meaningful devotional with all of us.
