Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
Hi everyone...my name is Valerie and this is my 3rd time around at attempting to lose weight. Two years ago I lost a total of 58 pounds and I was on top of the world. I really thought that I was on the road of defeating this weight struggle this once and for all. I never thought that I would see myself here again but two years later I am up to 294, not my highest weight but 10 pounds away from it and that is scary. I refuse to let the scale top off at 300 plus pounds so that is why I decided to take it back to the basics and hit the re-set button to my life.
I have set mini goals for myself in six month increments, so the first six months I have set a goal to lose 50 pounds and I will record it each month. Starting today I am 294 but after next month I will never see this number again. I will defeat this once and for all.
"God, I relinquish power of my thoughts to you"
This is taken from someone else's page but I think it fits me to a T!!! It is very beautifully said:
I surrender my body and my weight loss to your divine care and love. I ask that you remove all excess and unnecessary weight from my body. Return my body to its most healthy and balanced state. Give me eating habits that support my health and life energy.And,finally,teach me to love my body and to care for it from this day forth. Amen
As You know, some days I wish
I looked different than I do.
How good it is to be reminded, Lord,
that You had me--exactly this me--
in mind long before I came to exist!
So today I present myself to You
with a grateful heart.
Help me to be a good steward of my body.
Because You designed it,
I want to celebrate, nurture, and respect it.
By Your power at work in me,
I praise You for every molecule, gene, and freckle!

Hi there! Welcome aboard the BGR team!! I love this team. It is actually the only one I have chosen to participate in. The ladies are great and our team leader is such a sweety. I am fairly new to running, I started a year ago using the c25k app... It worked for me!! And I was 220 pounds when I started running. Now i run about 4 times a week from 5-9 miles each run!!So be encouraged, you really can lose the weight, gain the fitness and accomplish your goals, it just takes time, commitment and daily choices. You've lost weight before so you can surely do it again!! Lord bless your restarted journey!! Clarissa
