MY JOURNEY

Hi All !! :)

Last summer and fall I went through a rough period with my health and got over 300 pounds which was 57 pounds more than I weighed in June 2012 when I weighed 246 and was doing so well after my big surgery in February 2012.

This really upset me and with some thought about getting my head right again, I was able to cut down on the things that make me gain weight and now I can say I'm back in the 200's and I feel the motivation setting in which has been ...
Hi All !! :)

Last summer and fall I went through a rough period with my health and got over 300 pounds which was 57 pounds more than I weighed in June 2012 when I weighed 246 and was doing so well after my big surgery in February 2012.

This really upset me and with some thought about getting my head right again, I was able to cut down on the things that make me gain weight and now I can say I'm back in the 200's and I feel the motivation setting in which has been lacking for some time.

Perseverence is a huge part of a successful diet. Continually ask God for commitment to your cause. And ask for his blessing. He is good to give it.

Keep this Bible verse close to you. It has gotten me through some really rough times:

Phillipians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

My thought for today is: I'm determined to make it, no matter what!

I hope you will join me on my journey as I strive towards Onederland.

Thank you for visiting my page and may God Bless and keep you.

My Goals:
I'd like to lose weight so I can breathe better, so I can walk in the sunshine, so I can go shopping with my daughter, just so I can feel better again. I'm so tired of being fat and unhealthy and a mess to look at.

I'd also like to get some help for my horrific back and leg pain from the sciatica nerve but am getting very discouraged by the lack of progress and the string of doctors I have seen over the last year. And now I have found out that surgery is not an option for me because my back is so back and I have so many health risks that two surgeons have turned me down for surgery.

My Program:
At the suggestion of my internist, I am doing the Atkins program which is a low carbohydrate diet. It works well for me because I don't get as hungry as I do when I am counting calories. My original starting wt was 350 in 2008 up through 2011. As of June 2012, I had lost 100 pounds with Spark People. Unfortunately, I got off track and gained back around 57 pounds of the weight I had lost.

Personal Information:
My name's Ginger and I live in South Carolina. I am a transplanted Yankee and while I miss some things, I sure don't miss all that snow from Rochester, NY!! I love the South, love to garden, love to try new recipes, but most of all, love the Lord and my family most of all.

Other Information:
Love to read, especially mysteries, enjoy knitting and also sewing. Hope to learn to quilt maybe next year. Right now I"m trying to get myself in better health because I've had more than a few setbacks the past few years. My previous blogs will tell you what's happened and where I am now after MAJOR surgery last year.

Some goals never change!
GET HEALTHIER!!!
