�In all labor there is profit; but the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury� Prov 14:23 (Don't be mad about the results you didn't get, because you only talked about it and didn't do the work it required.)
You may be old, sick or very old and decrepit have a kind of emaciated body but if you practice, the perfection of yoga is certainly possible Hatha Yoga Pradipika
In "The Power of NOW" Eckhart Tolle teaches us to live for today. If we do that, all the days of the year will add up to our success.
"Never wait for the proper mood to start a thing, nor until the spirit moves you. Make your own mood. Make your own spirit. How? ACT. Do something � anything. Inspiration seldom generates action. Action always creates inspiration."

Thanks for commenting on my Postage Stamp blog. I didn't even know Spark Mail existed (because I just run everything off my phone) - so I was surprised and honoured to find out about the feature blog. Have a great day.

Our above-ground pool was here when we bought the house in 2008. The former owners here were half-a$$ers too. We had to replace the pool liner when we came home from our daughters wedding. There were tree roots under the liner and no sand. The roots were cut and then a layer of foam was put on the bottom of the pool liner and sealed with a cover over that.
We haven't had anyone but family swim in it. I did buy beach towels for two boys.

I have watched Butter Bob videos and I have been following a low carb high fat ketogenic way of eating. It is really helping my blood glucose readings, my blood pressure and my weight loss. I am on the Reversing Diabetes site on Facebook where I got the diet Dr. Eric Westman tells people to follow for free.
I went last month to West Virginia where he was speaking to over 200 people about the ketogenic way of eating. I will look up the other Dr. and watch his videos. Thank you so much for the information, JIBBIE.
I hope you have great success.

First things first. You have to decide that you want to lose weight. Then you need to be committed to losing it. And next you have to have Faith in yourself that you can lose weight.
Not only will you need Faith in yourself to lose the weight, but you are going to need Faith in God to lose weight. With out Faith we are nothing. God never meant for us to be nothing, He meant for us to have Him abide in us and for us to abide in Him as Healthy, Happy and Full of Faith in our selves and Faith in Him.
As long as we have Faith in God there is nothing we cannot accomplish and the same is true in having Faith in ourselves. Our faith goes way beyond the pulpit, it extends to believing and loving what we cannot see unconditionally. So why is it that we cannot love what our God has created in His own image.
Our bodies are a creation of our God's. He formed us with His own hands, so why aren't we doing what we need to take better care of ourselves. Don't we need to have Faith in ourselves?
Let's take inventory of why we want to lose weight in the first place.
1) Do you want to look better?
2) Do you want to drop just a few pounds?
3) Are you tired, out of breathe?
4) Are you suffering from a major illness?
5) Are you morbidly obese?
6) Just can't see your toes anymore?
7) Are you sleeping all the time?
8) Tired of feeling over full every time you eat?
Did I miss anything? Well, I think we need to start believing that we can stop over eating. Have Faith, Pray, God will listen. Use self talk, use motivational tools, provided hear on Spark People. Use motivational videos, keep a journal, write a blog and read your bible daily. Most of all pray before each meal. Don't be afraid to ask God for His help, that is what He is there for. Trust me He wants all His temples healthy too.
Exercise is a must, be Christ like.... Jesus got in His daily walks. So when you hear some ask are you walking with Jesus, what will your answer be?
How many hospitals don't have a chapel in it? There are so many missions, churches and other religious deities in this world today that provide healthcare and even weight loss information It would astound you. So yes, faith and weight loss go hand in hand.
Know that you can do this, you can do all things through Christ. You are a winner, because you a child of God's and God does not make mistakes. You can track your meals, you can walk 10 + minutes daily, you can blog about your day and you can keep a journal and you can have FAITH in You, I have FAITH in YOU and I have Faith in GOD. We can do all things through God!!
