Making A Change

I have been over weight for over 19 years. I am very tired and I want a change. I don't want to only do it for vanity reasons but for health reasons as well. I've been battling yo-yo dieting all my life. Until one day I was praying and I repeated "I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me." I've been eating healthier for two months and I returned to the gym two weeks ago, 6/9/2009 to be exact. I am getting married in August 2009 and this is the perfect time to make a change. I'm ...
I have been over weight for over 19 years. I am very tired and I want a change. I don't want to only do it for vanity reasons but for health reasons as well.

I've been eating healthier for two months and I returned to the gym two weeks ago, 6/9/2009 to be exact. I am getting married in August 2009 and this is the perfect time to make a change. I'm very thankful that my Bridal Specialist informed me about Spark People. I welcome all advice and comments! :-)

Sunday will be three weeks since I joined SP. I was a little depressed because the scale hasn't moved. I feel better now because my clothes are fitting better therefore, I must be losing inches. I have been going to the gym faithfully for four weeks. All Praises goes to God. I feel much better. It's funny now I have added weight training to my workout routine, Thank you Lord!

At the present time I can't vision myself smaller (That's sad!). God said "If my people don't have a vision they will perish." Slowly but Surely Making A Change!"

I took this prayer from another page. I had to post it because I totally believe in this prayer.

Dear God,
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. Finally, teach me to love my body and to care for it from this day forth. Amen

Stay Encouraged My Sisters!!!

It felt so good to have tried on my wedding gown today and I can wear that size 16. I have a little over a year until my wedding and I know that the Lord is changing my body. Therefore, I will need alterations. Thank you Jesus!!

"Rejoice not against me, O, mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise: when I sit in darkness the Lord shall be a light unto me"
Micah 7:9

I'm feeling a little down today. I'm working out for an hour now but, my enemy (the scale) is making me upset. Lord, I surrender my all to you. Help me with this weight loss battle.
Amen
