Weight Watchers Weigh In Day: Week Six

Pin It
Down two pounds this week! That makes for a grand total of nine pounds. My clothes are fitting better and after a month and a half of Weight Watchers I am still plugging along.

I honestly can't remember a time when I have been this obedient to a weight loss plan. I love how God is softening my heart and melting my food idols away. It is such a relief to want to turn to the Lord instead of to food. Not to say that this has been perfected because I had a nasty slip up yesterday.

Yesterday was a hard day. Hubs was away and I wanted him near. Little Bit was away and I wanted him near. The car was gone so I was here all alone and wow did I ever feel alone. Instead of curling around my Bible like I should have I curled around a bag of ranch flavored rice snacks. I didn't eat all of them but I knew while I was doing it that it was for the wrong reason. I was lonely and that bag didn't help me to feel any better.

Thankfully, God has given me a husband who loves me. He took today to be with me. Little Bit went with Nana and Pop Pop for a date and I went with Hubs for a date day. We enjoyed each others company, ate good food, talked, and went to a movie. It was wonderful and I feel refreshed.

How do you and your spouse make time for each-other? Do you have dates or make time for each-other at home?


  1. I love how God is softening my heart and melting my food idols away....that is LOVELY

    1. Thanks Amy. It has taken a long time for those nasty idols to take a back seat.

  2. Way to go!

    My hubby and I should make more time...but our favorite thing to do is to cuddle together on the couch after the kids are in bed and watch our favorite shows. We also play board/card games together.

  3. That sounds like great fun Judy! I wish you were closer. I love playing board games. What fun we would have scheming up new crafts for our boys and beating the fellas at monopoly!

  4. Awesome on the two pounds. We have weekend dates right now since I am two states away babysitting my grandson. We make sure we spend most of the weekend together doing yard work and other fun stuff.
