Letting Go, and Letting God.

Wednesday, December 02, 2009

I'm at war/battle with the Devil. He is busy trying to break my spirit but God is on my side. Every time I feel like I'm going to break, I remember He is right there arms stretched wide and all I have to do is reach out and grab hold.

I got up singing Christmas carols with Shakeira(my baby) It's amazing how powerful, a worship and praise song can be. It reminds me of all the blessings that God has stored upon me and get me back to a place of gratitude.

I sat on my new living room furniture this morning with a cup coffee and looked around me. What a site to behold. God has blessed me with needs but He has given me some of my wants too. In July 2008 after I relapse I lost my furniture (due to none payment)and I was almost through paying for it. On Saturday I went back to Rent A Center to see what I needed to do to pick up where I left off. It's true. They will put the money you've already paid in, towards something else. To make a long story short, I got a brand new black living room suit. It looks like leather but it's not. All I have to pay is $571 and I've already given them a portion of it and I'll try to pay the rest by next month. To them, it was used because someone had it before me. Whoever had it, didn't have it long because it looks brand new. Either way you look at it, it's new to me and a GREAT deal. There's so MUCH to be grateful for and trust me, I am!

    Awwwwwwww an awesome story Sabrina..Thanks so much for sharing!! You know God won't allow us to me tempted above what we are able. He promised He would supply all our needs and He will. He even supplies some of our wants at times. He is so good. You spoke about you singing praise to God. There is a song we sing sometimes in our church,
"Somethings got to happen when we praise the Lord."

I have proven this to be so true so many times.
Have a GREAT night!

Seting a new goal.

Tuesday, December 01, 2009

I'm going for a loss of 8 pounds by 1/1/10. I believe that I can do it but must wait and see what my body says. emoticon My cousin said that she saw a big change when I walked into church Sunday. I tell ya, I was walking on a cloud or should I say riding on one because my feet didn't touch the floor once. I'm NOT going to do too much too fast but I WILL make an effort to do my BEST! Here's to a GREAT month!

Have a GREAT day!

I made it through another night without eating!

Thursday, November 26, 2009

I've managed to do it again. I haven't had anything to eat since 8:00 pm last night. emoticon
emoticonI'm really excited about that because I thought I had to have a snack at 9/10 in order to make through the night. Well I've just proven myself wrong.

I got on the scale this morning and I'm up 3 pounds and I don't know what that's about. I have eaten at night many times but I've never gained this fast. Plus I've had 2 successful nights in a row so that in itself should have at least maintained NOT gained. It could be muscle but I don't know. Hopefully I'll lose it and some by December 1st for the challenge. Other than that, all is well.

Have A Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Just remember the scale does not define WHO you are and does not show the Total Picture. Don't rely on it so much. If you are eating healthy and exercising, you are doing emoticon things for your body and your health.

Today Have a Plan Stick With It!

Happy Thanksgiving Day!

You know the old saying: You live and you learn! Well I'm doing just that. First let me say, I approached this battle all wrong at first. I know some of you were screaming,"Just for today" but I've lived and I've learned and NOW I'm working on it. I wont be counting down anymore. This is a daily process so I MUST take it as so. It's about staying in the moment and making good choices, RIGHT NOW!

I know a LOT of you are getting your dinners prepared today so WATCH IT!
Have a great day!

    Good job Sabrina...I hear your heartbeat, in other words, I understand what you are saying, and if that is what's going to work for you, then you go girl...That's what it's all about, what works best for Sabrina. My approach may be a little different than yours; but, together, with God's help, we'll conquer this. The Word of God's tells us that we are already more than conquers in Christ Jesus!!!I'm proud of what you did last night.
Be blessed in our Lord,

My winning streak has been broken!

Tuesday, November 24, 2009

I didn't make it through the night without eating but it's okay. Today is a new day, I will move on so that I may move forward. I will strive to make healthy choices and stay within my calorie range. That also means NOT eating at night!
Have a great day everyone!

    Love the positive attitude. Everyone has days that don't turn out how we like...that is life.
You make it six days, next time maybe you will make eight...
All the best to you as you go further down the path on the road to health and fitness!
