I ask myself when will you make a life change that will benefit you forever. Have I received my answer? The answer is no. I realize I cannot do it for my kids, my spouse or my friends but I must make a change for myself. I have struggled to be consistent time after time and this cycle has become very frustrating and difficult. Regardless if I start and continue for six months I have not reached my goal and that's having a life change. It is very difficult to work full time, go to school full time, be a mom and wife and take time out for myself. I noticed lately I have had the urge to workout at night. I don't know if that has something to do with my new schedule at work or not. After working from 7-3:30 for 11 years and now changing to 8:30-5 has put a dimper on my energy. I really need to get back into the gym and start making healthier choices for my meals. I know I will return soon because it is constantly on my mind therefore, I know change is coming.

All I need is motivation and encouragment to get started and remind consistent. I know it will be obstacles but I must remember I can do all things through Christ. Good Luck to All on this weight loss and getting healthy journey.

~Peace and Love~

    Take a little time and do a couple things. Put together a vision collage to help define where you want to go. Carve out some 10 minute chunks each day to go for a walk. Set aside 10 minutes to plan food for you and the family the next day (It's something you can get the kids to help with as well).

There are ways, just keep the focus on you, because you are worth it.

    I think you can do it if you set your mind to it. I have recently told myself that I need to step up my game and hit the gym harder than normal. You are lucky you can walk 30 minutes at work. Good luck on your journey!

    Awesome! I know you can do it -- 30 minutes a day 5 times a week is a great start. Maybe add some interval training? Run for 30 seconds then walk then run again.. get a bit more out of those 30 minutes! Or bring handweights on your walk and do bicep curls and lunges every five minutes.. you don't have to start going to the gym an hour every day, just keep upping the little things and it'll make a big difference!

you can do it!!!

Tired of being tired!

Friday, January 09, 2009

Today is 1/9/09 a day after my birthday and I'm still battle this weight loss problem. I'm tired of starting and re-starting. I have one more year before I complete my Master's degree and 7 months until my wedding. I am determined to have my gown altered to a smaller size and walk across that stage being a couple of sizes smaller.

I fell off the wagon but I got back up! Life has put a few stumbling blocks in front off me but God has given me a direction that I am going to follow. He is in control of all the situations in my life and I am determined to listen to His voice and follow the path that He has directed me to travel.

Stay Blessed and remember God is in control of everything,

Love Always,

    You can do it. For your wedding you have to start now with small changes. Throw out the mentality that you will lose it fast and now. Let that go. Realize make small changes. Its not an all or nothing. I have started over so many times myself. What i realize is the support is one of the most helpful things you can do beside exericse and food. When i restarted for the 1000 thousand time. this time I started by 15mins of exercise and 4 glasses of water. Every week I increased it every week. I log in on sparkspeople everyday. I read articles and I post. To keep my focus on my goal. Its mental as well as physical.

God never said the journey would be easy, but He did say the arrival would be wonderful! So trust Him. He will get you home. Soon the trials of the trip will be forgotten in the joys of the feast.

My new goal is to lose 2lbs a week. Please pray with me! I can do all things through Christ! I am so determined to get this weight off that it hurts. The struggle is so hard but God said that the battle is not mine. Therefore, I put all trust in you Father...

    I feel you on this. I'm tired of being fat and am so determined to lose this weight but I keep sabotaging myself. I know that surrendering this to God is the answer but I keep picking this cross back up and trying to battle it myself. We need to pray for strength daily about this weight issue.

    I'm in agreement with you, Let us all run this race together.
As I said earlier in another post that we can't do this alone.

The Lord your/my God which hath begun a good work in you will complete it Philippians 1:6 This is one of my favorite scriptures.

God has started a good work in us. We can't do this alone. At least I can't. By myself I'm too weak. If it were up to me I would be standing in front of the Krispy Kreme Donuts waiting for the Hot & Ready light to come on. But thanks be to God who saves me from myself. U continue to trust in Him. My goal is also 2 lbs a week. I miss it last week but I'm still in the race. Hey, guess what? We've already won!

    I know exactly what you are saying. Plus it is so simple to do. All the time I was trying all of these different weight loss scams, Jesus was just looking at me with His arms folded and shaking His head.(smile). You have to be obedient and don't think you can handle life by yourself. I need to start blogging!
