Now I'm closer to my goal and much healthier and more confident in my life. I am so happy to see another month. I am excited that this year is flying by and I'm going to make the most of it.
I've decided to REBOOT. That means I'm pushing the button and giving it MORE than I've ever had before!
I had a healthy breakfast of Oatmeal, raisins and Almond milk. That's the way to start a day. I had been skipping breakfast for most days on purpose. I've decided that I need to eat my calories earlier than later. So no more missing breakfast unless I'm on a Spiritual Fast. Oatmeal is quite filling and I've always loved it for any meal or snack.
I'm regulating my time and stick to a schedule that gives me more sleep. It's our decision to get the proper sleep each day and no matter what others say...THERE IS ENOUGHT HOURS IN THE DAY TO GET WHAT YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO DO EACH DAY...Sorry. lol
I'm DRINKING ENOUGH WATER!!!
I am determined to be the BEST ME that GOD Created me to be. There's no other option in my life. I am a Blessed Woman of God and I know it. I'm going to Show it! I trust God with All my Heart and I am a SUCCESS NOW! I see it. Just like God...My Father. What a Blessing to KNOW!
Do What YOU must do to get What you have not been doing DONE! But...no matter what I say...YOU HAVE TO WANT THIS BAD!!!!!
I'm happy with my progress thus far. Otherwise I wouldn't have taken so many pictures in the last couple of months.
I'M CHEERING AND PRAYING FOR US ALL! ENJOY THIS FIRST WEEK OF AUGUST WITH GUSTO AND FAITH IN GOD. HE'S HELPING US ALL!
It's a myth that eating late will make you gain weight. Your body doesn't know what time it is when you eat, and it metabolizes all calories the same way, regardless of the time of day they are eaten. There is no real concern with eating late or close to bedtime, unless you find it disrupts your sleep or makes you feel a sick when you lie down to go to bed.
"Inspiring people are vitamins for our spirits. They come in all kinds of disguises and descriptions. If you open your heart to being inspired, they will appear.”
Don't ever forget that. We all have our own pace. Forget about the pace of others. What can you do and in your Strength that God gives you? We sometimes fall to the wayside because we are focused too much on the pace of others and everything that they are accomplishing that you somehow feel short of. Don't think like that!
We are ALL Winners right now. See the End before you start. That's with Anything. That's How God CREATED EVERYTHING. He saw His Finished Product at the Beginning.
We are well able to get to each goal in our lives. Have Faith in God. Have Faith in Yourself.
Your Pace is the Right Pace for YOU!
Let's Make July Hotter than the Temps in Texas! Triple Digits!
Thanks for all the comments on my last blog! Thanks for all the comments on this blog. Thanks for always motivating me to stay on my way Forward! I Love You!
Blessings and have a GREAT WEEK!
I don't know why but I always think the day I started was the 7th instead of the 6th so I'm a day late. But it actually started when I decided I wanted change that will last.
July 6, 2007 Is when I started this journey. It took me about a month to get real serious and maybe that long to start participating with other Sparkers. I will never in my life regret coming here.
I've went through my beginning in a previous blog so I will not repeat myself. I just want to Highlight that every time I walk...I AM SO THANKFUL! Losing wasn't new to me but losing and KEEPING it off was.
Of course I am working towards this 30 lb goal. A far cry from the 88lbs I wanted to lose when I started. I know I'll do it and I am doing it. I appreciate every one of you who help to keep me grounded and accountable. I am grateful that God has put you all in my life.
4 Years! Yes I've gained some and lost it back but my focus is on point and I am in this to win it for a LIFETIME. I thank God for the confidence I have. I used to be so ashamed of being overweight. Mainly because I was teased and bullied when I was growing up. I felt worthless. But I know I am Worth More than anything on this earth. I was worth Jesus Blood!
So I'm going forward...starting another year and excited about further changes in my body. I'm a far cry from the 233lbs size 24 when I started. I'm 178-183 but I don't trust the scale. Wearing 14's and 16's. I'm excited. I am smaller than when I graduated high school for sure.
I appreciate Spark People and will forever tell people where they can come and get the best information and support and tools for a successful Lifestyle change ever. All Free of Charge. Thank You Father for that!
I'm Celebrating this entire month and pray that your journey is as exciting as mines has been. Have met some of the greatest people here and I do appreciate you all. You are my motivation. I can't say this enough. It's TRUE. That's why I say it. You are so Special and You are here because you want to Change what you've been doing that wasn't working. Here, We Are So Very Blessed! Thanks SparkGuy!
More changes in me to come. I am making progress in every area. Have written over 90000words on my Young Adult novel...you know I'm long winded...ready to edit it by the end of this month hopefully then a rewrite that I want completed by December31,2011. And I have many other goals that I'm working towards.
I'm still Going Strong and Getting Stronger Daily!
Many Blessings to All of You. My main Encouragement: If you don't know Jesus as Lord of Your LIfe then Ask Him to come into your heart and lead you in His Path for You. Without Jesus I can do nothing. Without Them in my life I would not have found SparkPeople. He's Sweeter than the Day Before. HE LOVES YOU SO!
