This is the last time for my first day to begin again!!! All things are possible with Jesus! My name is Mary and I'm a stay at home mom and homeschool our six kids.

I was walking on my treadmill this morning (01/28/09) and I got to my "F" songs on my mp3 player. This song came on..."Freedom Song" by David Phelps. As soon as I listened to the words of it, I knew it was my anthem song for my weight journey. Think of weight loss as you read these words: (my thoughts are in parenthesis)

Stop, my brother, there's a better road
Why you want to carry that heavy load? (all this weight)
Everybody ought to be singin'
A freedom song
Oo, you can't even move from all that's holding you down (how many years was I sedentary because it hurt?)
Chains you made yourself are keeping you bound (I've eaten myself to this way)
You've convinced yourself that peace can't be found
So why'd you let the devil inside? (my thoughts of failure)
It's grace that gives you freedom in life
(Chorus)
Stop, my brother, there's a better road
Why you want to carry that heavy load?
Everybody ought to be singin'
A freedom song
You can change your world today (Yes, I can with my choices!)
Why would you want it any other way?
Everybody ought to be singin'
A freedom song

There was a time when I just couldn't win
When my addictions made me a slave to my sin (fill in the blank with food!)
I'd try to break away, but then I'd do it again, until (oh, this is sooo true!)
Helpless I fell down on my knees
Then the love of the Lord made me free
Made me free
(back to chorus)
----------------------
Today, I am making choices to change my tomorrow and I won't be bound by the chain of this heavy body anymore!!!
----------------------

I weigh every day, but to make this much more simple, I will only put my Friday weights down to show my progress.

My Program:
I'm following a lowcarb lifestyle. I've done it before so I know it's the only way it works for me. This time, however, I don't just want to lose it. I want to overcome my emotional/stress eating that always brings me back to starting over.
*Update*-Sparkpeople is helping me with this tremendously by keeping me accountable and wanting to do good on weigh-ins for the teams.
