20 pounds lost picture!

Here is a picture of me from this past weekend with one of my biggest cheerleaders! I can't really tell a difference in my weight. However, this is me minus 20 pounds!!!I guess we can compare it to my last picture on here which is me by myself.

Yes, folks! I can't believe it but I have officially lost 20 pounds. I sort of wanted to keep to myself in the event that next week I gain weight or something, but I decided to proclaim it to all.
I still feel out of control at times when it comes to food. There have been quite a few days lately where I have wanted to be able to shovel lots of food into my mouth. As I write this now, I am craving a dinner out somewhere. Stress is still playing a key role in how I handle food. I need to find a new way to handle stress; also, I need to find a new way to handle relief too. This past week I had 3 tests which is a lot for us PA students. So, with the end of the last test today I really wanted to stop at Arby's yet again on the way home. HOWEVER, God provided me with an out. I really wanted to drive through the "drive through", but I realized that I had put my backpack with my wallet in the trunk. It was divine intervention on the food problem because normally by backpack is in the front seat next to me. SO, being lazy I did not want to get the wallet out of the car and did not have my Arby's:)
I have yet to start working out. I know that I need to but I just haven't made the time. If I had an elliptical in my room, things would be so much easier for me.
Weightloss and discipline isn't supposed to be easy. I pray that I get out of that mindset!!
Thanks to all of you that have been encouraging me through this process!
