NEW BEGINNINGS.....voids filled!
In September 2007, I joined SP. My titile page was ENCOURAGED. I was tired of being in the wilderness, hence, #40...and RIGHTNOW indicated my readiness to lose the weight. Well, it turned out that all of that was simply rhetoric!!! Alot of emotion, but absolutely nooo substance because I chose to slip back right into the same trap of gluttony. Umph!
Well, I have changed the page title to DETERMINED....because TODAY is a brand...new...beginning. Yes, nearly one year later while I refuse to think that goals could have already been met, instead, I choose to focus on the pounds I am losing NOW. I am on my "weigh" :) to accomplishing my goal.
Not too many Sundays ago, in our United Methodist Church, I stood up during our praise and concerns moment and acknowledged my gluttony---that was the concern! :)--and my praise-- that my faith in God will release me from gluttony...Oh, yes I did do that! And what freedom that has given me!!!---So, my SP support, I'm asking you to keep watching my heart icon, and just see what I am talking about. EVERY time you see that heart mooove to the right, just drop me a note of encouragement and know I am giving all praises to Him for keeping me motivated. If any of what I have shared inspires you, I am sooo grateful. Indeed together we will write the same incredible ending, though our stories may be totally different.
I looove to tell this life's experience. Thanks so much for stopping by.
My weight does not define me,
PS Remember...keep checking on me and that icon.
To show others there is not one single thing we can not achieve when we put our faith, hope, and trust in God. If I take one step; He will take two!
To reach my goal weight of 127 pounds.
Eat 6 small meals a day; no two consecutive days without 30 minutes exercise; drink eight, 8oz bottles of water; pray and meditate; log onto SP everyday for receiving and giving support and motivation from and to others; and for every 10 pounds gone, buy a goal-size outfit (to re- build my new wardrobe.)
My name is Cynthia; I live in Pennsylvania. After graduating from college, I married my childhood sweetheart. Four years later, that union gave us our beautiful daughter, who, with her husband, God blessed us with 3 wonderful grandchildren who now, more than ever-help fill the void that eventually came into my life. I am a high school teacher. I really enjoy traveling, bicycling, walking, reading, day-spa; golfing, dancing, swimming, music--the bottom line: I have a zest for life!
One of my favorite quotes: "It is NEVER too late to begin again."
| current weight: 182.0
funny how we leave for a while and then come back for support again! I hope you are doing well--your picture has vanished from my friends? I am back again to make it happen for 2012
