I love when Joyce Meyer says if you are entertaining that spirit of fear then...Do It Afraid! emoticon

Go out there...where ever there is and just do what you have to do. Shaking in those boots if need to. I have lived so much of my life afraid to get up in front of people because of being overweight. I know God didn't give me the spirit of fear...but back then I couldn't even think about it. I write poetry and wrote poems to read at church all the time.

When it came time to read them I could almost hear my heart beating in my chest. lol emoticon But I read it with so much Power and Strength and I couldn't hear my heart beating any more. I did it...afraid...but I did it. It was a blessing to be a blessing.

This journey can seem scary and may cause us to even sabotage our steps forward. We must know that fear tolerated is faith contaminated. We must have faith in God that He can get us through to the end and further. We must have faith in ourselves that we are well able to do this. emoticon

We have not been given a spirit of fear but of love power and a sound and stable mind. You may start in fear but continue on in Faith. Without faith we can't please God.

So let's not tolerate fear in our lives for no reason. I have been a little anxious because I have not been able to do my regular cardio since that accident I had. I was almost in fear of not making it to my goal of Dec 31.

I have had a pair of jeans hanging on my door waiting for November to finally fit into them. Yesterday I had on a pair of my skinny jeans that were a bit baggy. So I took these little jeans off the hanger and ...they fit! Size 14! OMG!!! I'm doing it!!!

I started in fear...but I'm going all the way in Faith and even Further!!!

Ain't God Good!!! emoticon

In this journey, it's up to each one of us to sow into the journey...good order to reap a good harvest.

If you don't sow good seed into this journey you shouldn't expect a good harvest.

What do we sow?

A made up mind that you want too be healthy and fit no matter what.

Daily sowing good seeds of nutrition.

Scheduling workout times according to your desires and keeping them.

Daily speaking your desired harvest from this journey.

Keeping a food journal and writing down everything you eat everyday.

Logging onto SparkPeople daily or as much as you can and participating in the teams and Blogs and reading articles...just being active.

Motivating someone else which will make you feel great. emoticon

Don't give up for you will reap what you sow. You play a very important part in this process and it's NEVER GIVE UP! emoticon

Reaping requires our work. Consistent Work= emoticon

This system can be used in every area of your life for it started when God created the world. emoticon

We start this journey seeing our end from the beginning and keep it in our minds and this helps us stay positive along the way. emoticon

Write the Vision and make it plain and look at it often. This is necessary in every area. You can get to the end. emoticon

Join me in laying hold and reaping our great harvest. emoticon emoticon emoticon

It's a great day to be alive! emoticon

Consistency Reaps Great Rewards

Saturday, September 18, 2010

I've noticed in some areas of my life I am extremely consistent. Those are the areas that. I reap the great rewards. Since I've been on this journey...since 2007...I've realized that my journey has been 3 years because I have not been consistent in the important areas.

Eating healthy is the main area that I did not remain consistent. The majority of the eating was unhealthy junk food. I consistently ate this way but reaped unwanted rewards. I did manage to keep exercise in my life, otherwise I would have gained back every pound that I have lost.

Consistency in eating healthy and working out will reap the rewards that I desire. Today is Saturday and I am 104 days closer to meeting my goal weight this year. I'm sure a lot of us oldies are going to meet our goals. I will meet my goal by Dec 31, 2010.

I know what I need to do and I am doing it. It feels great to be losing weight and making a lifestyle change. I can't wait to get back outside with my workouts. I didn't realize how much I depend on my workouts to bring consistency in my life.

Being consistent in using the tools that we have in weight loss will reap great rewards for our bodies and for our souls. Change Starts fro the inside out. Gain control of what's going on inside of you and everything else will come easier and we all like the word easy.

When I look in the mirror, I love what I see. I'm loving some ME! God made me and proclaimed me as good. God don't make ugly! No matter what anyone says...I am beautiful. God has made us all beautiful.

In this journey we must love ourselves now, not when the goal is met. If you don't love yourself from the inside out and this journey will become easier. Our hearts should be filled with Love for ourselves and each other. No good result will come from hating who you are.

Embrace who you are and how special you are. Look in that mirror and emoticon
because you are BEAUTIFUL right NOW!

I Love Me some Me!
