Square dancing really burns calories (but we're over an hour from a club now).

Gotta Do It

March 1, 2012 - Back at it again. I've got to do something to keep motivated and to have some accountability. So here I am!

My Goals:
My main goal is to get down to my goal weight by this time next year. With the Lord's help, I know I can do it since that's less than one pound a week.

My Program:
I'm going to try doing the SP menu plans but of course will have to adapt it a bit for foods I don't like or have on hand.

Personal Information:
I live in the far NE corner of Oregon in a gorgeous area of farmland and high mountains. Our small town has a population of just over 1,000 people so is pretty small but we love it that way. I work part-time as an office assistant in a small local church and also work occasionally as a substitute cook for two senior meal sites in our county.

Other Information:
My husband and I have a "blended family" of nine kids but they are now grown - between 43-49 years old. (A set of twins in there too.) We also have 12 grandchildren plus six step-grand kids! Our first great grandchild is due in September!
We actually met at a square dance and still do it when we can but it's over an hour's drive to the closest club! Great exercise! We've been married for almost 26 years.

Hi Carol and thank you so much for the goodie!
Where we are going is not Napa Valley it is closer to Santa Barbara. The name of the town is Solvang, CA you should look it up on the internet, an adorable town!
Yup, we are all in this together and maybe one day we will succeed. I hate to have excuses for why I haven't done too well, I think I just lost the zest or excitement and I need to get it back!
Just slower than desired, but it will happen...for us all!

Hi Carol,

Thank you, very much for writing on my page. What a blessing it was to read your comments.

I can honestly, not take ONE stitch of credit for what my God has done in my life. If I did, I'd be lying. I tried for YEARS to lose weight on my own, only to fail time and time again. But there's just something about waking up in the morning and making the choice to trust God, even when it goes against what you know in your heart to be true. Cause let me tell you, sis, what we think we know, can oftentimes be deceiving. We KNOW by physical evidence, that we're overdrawn in our accounts, the doctor has just given us bad news and we're overweight and unable to lose it. We can see these things and they're things we KNOW to be true. But God says to us, "Wake up in the morning and make the decision to trust my word over what you think you KNOW." Because when it comes down to it, really, all we really know, is that God is God and He has the power to change everything in our lives if we'll just believe. It takes faith to move the hand of God and if you'll make the CHOICE to have faith to believe, God will (not can but WILL) do the same for you as he's done for me. He adores you, SOOO much and wants to see you succeed more than you do. Believe it, sis.

God bless you,
