I LOVE MY FRIENDS

Wednesday, April 16, 2008


I love my friends. I really do. They are a true inspiration to me and my journey. When I log on and see their progress I am proud, happy and encouraged. I think, they are doing it...so I can do it. I am doing it. Spark...I started this journey wearing a size 24 and some 26 because of these 2 at the top. LOL. Now I am in a 16 zip up button up pant/jean. I don't ever remember wearing a size 16 in my life. Maybe in the 3rd grade. LOL. I owe this all to my Lord and Savior Jesus. Only through His help and Strength have I come this far.

I wanted to be closer to goal, but when it goes slow for some, it will last. I need this slowness so that I can revel in the end victory.

I am excited and nervous. I know I am gaining muscle because my numbers don't show my success. I know I am successful. I feel healthier and am more outgoing. Some people are very introverted when they are carrying extra weight. That was me. I still am walking through some things, but I know I am making it.

You see, my success was ordained before the foundation of the world. This is the time in my life to be all that I can be spirit, soul and body. I am determined to do just that. I will not let anything slow me down. I have to continue to tell myself that.

So many emotions are involved in weightloss. The agony of defeat...the joy of winning...slow weightloss. I am a winner already. I have jumped over so many hurdles. Life is great. No more pity for me. If you don't like me, see ya. emoticon

Not YOU Friends. emoticon

I have to give myself a pep talk. After all I am a beautiful woman emoticon and the opposite sex will be and are attracted to me. I just don't want to be a fool for love. I want what God wants me to have. God's best is always better than the rest. Sometimes we are just too hard headed to listen and look at what is right in front of us. And if you don't see anything then just keep waiting. A note to self: What do you really want? Whole or half? Self knows what I am talking about. emoticon

Friends, I appreciate you all.

Stay focused. emoticon

Drink water. emoticon

Get plenty of sleep and please... emoticon

do cardio. Any kind. emoticon

I know that has helped me to come this far. I have been slipping but I got my dancing shoes on and I am ready to burn, burn, burn. Is it too late to cardio? I did strength train earlier while watching Biggest Loser. They are all winners. Losing so much weight. They all look beautiful. Wow...my time is so close.

I can feel it. How about you??

Let's Go Team! emoticon

A Bad Weekend Emotionally, But I AM Blessed!

Tuesday, April 08, 2008


My weekend was the worse ever emotionally. I couldn't eat. Did not want to sleep and I felt so betrayed and dismayed. So, I went and bought a disposable camera and had my children take pics of me. In one of my teams we are taking pictures of ourselves each day. Head shots, body part shots, full body shots. What ever we want. We are studying these pictures and learning to love what we see. The leader questioned what is real? Why don't our pictures look like what we see in the mirror? What image is really what others see.
I have learned a quick lesson and this challenge just started April. I AM BEAUTIFUL!!! No one else has to believe that but me and God. That has been one of my problems through the obese years. Concerned over what people think because I did not cherish my NOW beauty.

We all have NOW beauty. Don''t let another stare, laugh or unkind remark make you think less of yourself than you are. God made us all special. I am special. You are special. Even that enemy is special.

This is my year of new beginnings. New ways of thinking about who I am and why I am here. I have a purpose and I walk in my purpose. I let my purpose be a driving force in my life. I accept my Purpose that God has ordained for my life and I go forth in it by Faith of the Son of God Who has already opened every door that I need to walk through for success.

Isn't life good? What's a bad weekend? One where God is not in it..

Peace!!!

SNAP!!! I have already lost 43 Pounds.

Thursday, April 03, 2008


I snapped and thought...hey..you have already lost 43 pounds and only have 45 more to go. That's great. I have less than 50 pounds til goal. (This picture was Oct 07 and I was still wearing 24's.) I am celebrating and moving even faster. I want to taste the victory of enjoying life w/o wondering what others think of me. I will make everyone proud. I am an example of doing my best and losing what has been holding me back from my destiny. I know that I have sat down on what God has wanted me to do in areas that I have gifts for success. I will not do that anymore. I am fearfully and wondrously made. God did not make me a piece of junk. He thought before He made me.

He looked at me and smiled real big and said...She's good!! Heeeeeeey!!!!!!! LOL.

God said it, I believe it and that settles it.

My mother would have loved to see me losing weight. I would have loved to have her here, to chear me on. I miss her. She was a tough LITTLE woman, in weight and stature. But she did not take no mess. It's good to have a mama that loves you and cares for you and would do anything for you. I thank God for my mama. She's with Him now, but I know she is having the time of her life experiencing the Presence of His Glory!!

I Feel Like Rhyming!

Tuesday, April 01, 2008


I should be sleep but I feel like rhyming. That's my thing.

No pain no gain is often said

So, to Spark I was divinely led

To started the journey of my life

All the weight loss is not a hype

For I already lost forty-three

They won't ever find me

My face is focused, I'm looking straight

My goal weight is at the gate

I see myself as never before

Walking through that weightloss door

For I will be a light to many

Burning bright as a copper penny

I will not give up nor will I falter

I put this weight down on the alter

This is my year 2008

This is my destiny, no one can take

I see myself all firm and trim

Some may call me little slim

The best for me is yet to come

I am led by the Chosen Son

I will walk on in victory

For I have already won totally!!

Deborah

Power to ya all!! The new pics really don't show my now transformation, but had to post something new.

  


I'M GOING DOWN

Wednesday, March 26, 2008

I am leaving 190 ville very soon. It has taken me too long to lose 3lbs. It was set backs and letting so many meaningless mess get in my way. I know I have the victory and I must keep my trust in God Who has already gotten me the victory through Jesus Christ the King of Glory. I have decided that I am ready for sure to meet this goal of 145 lbs. Sometimes we get settled and stop for losing just a little weight and going down some dress sizes. The battle is not over. Health and total Wholeness is near. We can't be defeated. We already have the upper Hand. I can't believe I set myself up to slow down. I take all the blame, but I know I will be gorgeous when I look in the mirror...wait...I am already gorgeous...LOL You heard me! I love myself now, therefore I will love myself even more then. So many people around here influence, encourage, inspire and motivate me. Too many to name, but they all know who they are for I always acknowledge them. It is good to be able to come to a place and get motivated to stay on track. This is truly a blessing. I thank my God for His many blessings. I think I need to take a bath and go to sleep for a couple of hours before I have to be at work. I am on the move to a heathier, fitter and mentally stable me. Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord! I know I need to put up new pics and I will. Just haven't been able to do it. I am anxious to show off this 43 pound weightloss.
