Happy June!!!

Thursday, June 04, 2009

June is here and we are almost halfway through this year!!! I am still here going strong and losing. I am losing slow in my book. Of course, my doctor thinks my pace is just fine. I really believe that I am losing more inches than pounds because of the way my clothes are fitting. I thank God for my diligence. Only He has brought me this far. I am going farther and I will not quit!!! I will not give up!!! I will not fall out!!! This is a lifestyle change and I will keep it going strong even after I reach my goal weight.
I look in the mirror sometimes and that really me? A little "fear" gets in my belly but then I get excited because of the end results that I look forward to seeing. June is another month for me to go strong in exercise, food choices and staying healthy and fit. I need to drink more water and that is a goal that I am trying to achieve. It seems so hard for me because the water in the house goes quick and I do not drink faucet water. emoticon So nasty here!
I pray you all are reaching for the best you that your efforts cam achieve. God is with you and He is happy to help along this journey of a lifetime. It feels great to do something for yourself and see results. Results is what you are looking for no matter how big or small.
Well Spark, I just wanted to check in and let you know how I am doing. I am blessed and highly favored by God. He is great and greatly to be praised!!! Stay strong and keep going forward. Don't forget the end results is up to you. You can do it!!!

    Even though you may be 'losing' it too slow to make you totally happy, you are still working at it, so kudos to you! You are doing great as always!

I just wanted to say that I see light at the end of the tunnel. Sometimes I feel like my life is mainly about losing this weight. Then I remember that it is bigger than that. The weight is just a minor part of the whole vision. I see the Light. He leads me and guides me. I will get to my goal weight, but I will not drop off the universe. Yes, a lot of people are here to lose the weight and go about there merry way. Then I's more than that? There is light at the end of this tunnel!!!

Shouldn't we stick around to share that word of encouragement. God has been so good to us and has helped us on this path of new lifestyles and we are to share this great victory. This is only one part of the victory. One part of our life work. If we just complete our task then go on our merry way don't we leave others behind? Do you think we were here for just ourselves? Just for the moment. Oh, yes, it seems like an eternity but it was so fast that you could have blinked and not experienced all that you were here to experience. I pray you understand what I am talking about. We are always to look out for our fellow human being. It's not always about us. It's about others...first...before self. Can I help you in any way? Let me know. I am a motivator, but do I still motivate? Tough questions for someone's tough time. It's all good. You were made by God and He said you were good. Despise not what God calls Good. We are His workmanship created in Christ Jesus.

Keep your eyes on that Light and don't forget the other person who has not even gotten in that tunnel. They are waiting for your helping hand, word, goodie or blog.

I have lost 50 lbs. I am so happy. But I am more happy that I am a runner!!! Sunday I started my workout walking my community and ended up running the rest of the way. I am so happy!!! Nobody but God gave me the strength to run. I am so blessed. Spark friends, you can do anything. I am never going to stop running toward that finish line. You can do anything you set your heart to do. You have to persevere and never give up no matter what it looks like. I am a witness and a believer in the impossible. I am so close to my goal weight that I can just taste it.

Though the road may seem tough and the goal line may be cloudy, the finish will happen in your life. No matter what type of goal you desire, go after it with all your heart. My heart is to be a better runner. That started Sunday when I pushed myself. I did pace myself and started slow, but I actually did it. Thank you Spark friends for always staying in my corner.

Have a great week in this world of possibilities!!!

I'm Still Here!!!

Sunday, May 10, 2009

All Honor to God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit Who lives inside of me and guides me in the things I should do!!! They are my Life Coaches and trainers. I am trained up in the way I should go!!!

Happy Mother's Day to all. Yes...I am at this library so I can get you updated. I proclaim that I will get a new computer in Jesus Name. He knows I need it for my work ordained!!!

I am doing great. I am so excited to be 2llbs away from that big 50 loss. But I will not stop there. I had gained weight and now the Lord has blessed me to lose it all!!! Ain't God good!!! I am so thrilled that I have great friends like Caryn, QueenD, Dee, Debbie, Deondra, Ros, Jay, Debbie, Jandell and all the others who I do not take for granted. You lead me to want to be victorious everyday. I want to do all that I can to get this body where it has never been before. Fit and healthy. Fabulous and fine!!! I am happy to be so close to this goal.

I need more help and prayers. I think I am nervous about being thinner. It scares me a little and I know that is not from God because He has not given me a spirit of fear and that is what His Word says. There is a spirit of fear that is in this earth trying to hold us back from all that God has for us to do. It tries to hold us back from success. God has ordained all of us to be successful and a lot of us stop our own victories. We must let go and let God. Refuse to allow fear to come between now and our goal. I want to cross that finish line and I will not allow nothing to stop me.

emoticon I love my friends and those who come upon this page . You can see how far I have come. My weight loss is a history for me and my family. Everyone is so happy for me. I am happy for me. I can't wait for the new start line where I am maintaining this goal. God Bless Spark abundantly!!! Let nothing stop us from prospering in every area of our lives. It is out there for us all. Believe the Word of the Lord. He has given us the Power to get Wealth. Remember that. That promise is for all the body of Christ. Walk in Faith and believe. Don't be in despair because of finances. Remember that the Word of God is true. God can't lie. Psalms 23:1 tells us that because the Lord is our Shepherd we have everything we need. All our needs are met. Follow His instructions for your life. Walk upright before Him and proclaim the Glory of the Lord!!!

I am sorry to be long winded. But, you all know a sista by now. I am a writer and a writer Writes!!! emoticon
I am closing this blog for today. I love you all and I love Spark and all the people running it. THANKS SPARKGUY!!! I saw an advertisement for Spark in my Fitness magazine. That made me smile. We are going up in the world. Spread the Spark people!!!

    I love you so much Deb! You are my motivator and everytime I read your blogs you inspire me more than you can imagine. Could you bottle up some of your energy and Fedex it to New Jersey? Girl, there are times where I get so darn lazy and don't have the drive, but once I start exercising you know I can't stop. WE will reach our goal, yeah there will be some bumps in the road but I DO believe it is well worth the wait.

Love ya!

Having PC Problems...

Monday, April 20, 2009

Hello Spark People!!!

First...I won!!! That manager made a lying fool of herself and management company. God got me the Victory. He is always on the side of justice. Don't ever think your problem is too big for Him to handle. Nothing is too hard for our God. The Blood of Jesus got us the Victory on the Cross!!!

I am having PC problems and have to use the library. I'll come back as much as I can. I also lost 3lbs. Yeah!!!

I am going to move into the apartment that turned me down after the manager gave me a bad reference!!! I did not lose that application fee!!! God will not allow the wicked to overthrow the righteous in judgment. I am blessed to be a blessing!!!

Keep up the good work everyone. Remember that Monday is always a day to start over from a not so good weekend!!!

Thanks for all the prayers and good thoughts!!!

    Well you see I'm reading the blogs backwards. I just responded to your blog from 4/10. Oh well...better late than never. I'm glad everything worked out for you. I said what they were doing was the works of the devil and how far did he get? Well good luck apartment hunting and I know everything will be okay.

  I am glad to hear that you won! There is no way that the management could have won, she completely bypassed the fair housing act and probably the properties rules out of her own negligence. Good luck on the move to the new place and I hope you enjoy living there far more than this place.
