LOOKING IN THE MIRROR...

Monday, November 15, 2010

emoticonHAPPY MONDAY!!!

Today was my 2nd Physical Therapy session and as I walked from one place to another I caught my reflection in that big clean mirror. I was distracted for a minute and wanted to pull out my camera phone to take a picture. Alas the phone is still cloudy so that would not have worked.> emoticon

I'm making progress so everyone of us can make it happen as we give each other support. I want to reach a goal and spread the spark as new members visit our pages so Let's Go TEAMS! emoticon

I am so happy today even though I am still offline at home but thanks be to God Who always cause me to TRIUMPH no matter what. The library is a block away. emoticon

So just wanting to stop in and let you know that I'm thinking about you and praying for you always and I miss being around more but I do need to move even if it seems to be a snails crawl.

I can make my Goal no later than March 2011. Now that puts some of the pressure of. It's ok and everything is going to be All-Right!!!

Look in the mirror...YOU ARE MAKING PROGRESS!

Love You all and Have a Fun and Joy-Filled night!
Deb

    What a terrific attitude. Sometimes when losing weight, it is hard to see the difference as it is over such a long period. So glad you had this aha moment and was thoughtful enough to share it here. emoticon emoticon

THIS IS THE DAY THAT THE LORD HAS MADE...

Sunday, November 14, 2010

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hello Everyone! It is such a beautiful day in Texas. Sun is bright and chilly out. But I am not letting that bring me down. God is so good to us all. He rains on the Just and the unjust. He wants His Goodness to bring the unjust to Repentance! Is Jesus Lord of Your Life? Had to Ask? emoticon


Been sideline and offline because of not connection so wanted to check in with my friends. I don't like being unable to stay connected to Spark. I really had a bad eating day because of that and I am not going back into that rut. Nevertheless, this is A NEW DAY!!! emoticon

I did a lot of strength work and I ran in place because of what I ate. Of course I was not suppose to run. But...it's all good. emoticon

How have your eating habits been? I know how to practice self control. I should have went outside yesterday and walked that emotional eating off. Because of not being able to hook up to Spark? lol I love this site and the friends I have. It is my way to a better healthier and more beautiful me. We all are aiming towards that. I hope so.

I'm cooking chicken breast today. Also black eyed peas, broccoli and green beans. Sounds good and will be good with all that fiber rich food and lots of foliate too. lol I love my Veggies!!! emoticon

I am walking around so that's part of my fitness. Enjoy each day and the people around you EVERYDAY.

That's what He wants for us. To be JOY-FILLED! I made up a compound word! lol
Miss you and love you!!! Keep me in your prayers as I do Pray for you!!!
Blessings to All!
Debie lol

HAVE FAITH IN GOD

Friday, November 12, 2010



Happy Friday Everyone!!! I Love you!!! emoticon

I have been meditating on Mark 11 this morning and praying and getting so much Wisdom from the Lord. I found out something that I already knew. The Word Answers Everything! Your Answer is in His Word! Praise the Lord.

I was talking to Him about the weight loss goal...or rather He was talking to me. He told me that 30 lbs for Him is like 5 lbs to the World. When He is involved in Your "Project" He does it up BIG. But we have to HAVE FAITH IN GOD or really...HAVE THE FAITH OF GOD. emoticon

So I have decided that I am not going to think about these pounds I want to lose. I'm going to REST in the Word and keep TRUSTING God to Perfect ALL that concerns me. HE is Faithful Spark friends. He Loves everyone of us and He knows the struggles and the so called short comings that we may have but we must HAVE FAITH IN GOD!

Ok...I'm not going to preach but it's the Truth and knowing the Truth and DOING the Truth sets you free. emoticon

I am so thankful to God for my life. I am thankful to SparkPeople for this opportunity to better my self with all these special tools that helps me along my journey to a more fit me. I am thankful for the teams I am a member of. Thankful for all the support from my great SparkFriends! emoticonI am thankful for my two children who have never had a major illness in their lives. emoticonI am thankful for the Blood of Jesus that was Shed for me. Oh How Marvelous are the works of the Lord!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Just wanted to share some Truth with you and also I snatched that picture from my friend and one of my leader's Wildflowerr's page. Our God is an Awesome God!!!

Enjoy your Friday and all of your weekend! Smile. Have Fun! Attend Worship Service if you can. Many Blessings to you all!!!

    He reigns FOREVER!!! Every knee shall bow & tongue confess. . . .Girl, thank you so much for sharing with blog with us!! Its a hard thing to have faith in God when we believe we are doing things in His behalf. Not wise at all, it takes time but once you put that time you will definitely reap the benefits of faith in Him!! God bless, Dee

SHARING A COUPLE OF PICTURES FROM TRIP HOME...

Wednesday, November 10, 2010

Just a couple of pictures of the trip home.

These pictures came from the Bowling Alley out by Oral Roberts University. A very nice place. I didn't bowl...this was an outing for my family's High School Alumni. No...I went to a different school...because I wanted to. emoticonlol


Family that were there except for my little 14 year old cousin who went and hid. lol


My brother and his 2 sons.


My nephew, my sister and myself


My brother and sister and me!

Well I had a great drive there and back with my cousin. It was so good to get out and go home. I even went to church on Sunday...of course I already told you about that. It's always nice to see family and friends. I hope you enjoyed my family because I did.


My great-niece Bri'. She is so smart and just 3 years old. Speaks Spanish!

Now I'm going to service. Enjoy your evening!!!

(Don't forget:All Spark will be down for maintenance tonight from 11pm EST-7am EST 11/11/10.
emoticonWhat will I do? emoticon
