God is Doing A New Thing

I released 100 pounds and a lot of emotional and spiritual baggage between the Summer of 2006 and October 2007. The tools were the principles in God's Word, the power of the Holy Spirit, and the teachings in Thin Within . WHOO HOO! Read the entire story (if you dare! LOL!) at http://blog.heidibylsma.com.

The story continues - January 2011 - After struggling with almost two years of hormonal fluctuations due to that nasty change of life ;-), my body regulated again. Hunger and satisfied became more predictable and continue to be now. The size increase stopped--I had "grown" up about two sizes which I maintained for about a year-- and then I released the weight again. Now I am about the size I was at the time when I lost all my weight in 2007, but I haven't weighed.

On the exercise front, I have finally "given in" to getting regular about exercise. This has made a huge difference in my life (all good ways). I needed something that I could do without obsessing about numbers, miles, sets and repetitions. I use TurboFire which comes with a workout schedule. I pop in the DVD(s) for the day and just do what is prescribed. I don't have to track or write down anything. I was worried for many years that I would become obsessive again about exercise if I began again. I am thankful to say that my fears haven't been realized. I do still have issues to work through...but I am pleased with the overall changes. I have been doing TurboFire workouts for three and a half months.

I saw your post on the "Why do I sabotage myself" message board, and thought I'd check out you your spark page. I was thrilled to see that you are involved with Thin Within! I read the book when it first came out, and loved it. I lost 15 pounds in 1 month. Somehow, switching to the workbooks did not motivate me; I so loved the 'one day at a time' method.

Fast forward to this year, and I started spark people in Sept. by tracking my intake. But lately I've been feeling like I need to go back the 0-5 eating that is so on track with how God made us. Thanks for reminding me!!!
