Hey there, thanks for stopping in.
My weigh in was this morning, unfortunately I did not break out of the 250's this week
I weighed in at 252.0 lbs Its ok because:
I tracked everything from food to fitness
I'm feeling good about my progress, my body is getting stronger, and that in itself is a wonderful Blessing!!!
's I need some help, I am wrapping up my college stuff and will be attending Summer Classes. This is exciting but also scary.This is new to me.
Working full time, College... AND a single Mommy to a 6 yr old boy who loves all my attention.
I can NOT allow my health to be put on the back burner.
I started at 314 lbs Got down to about 230lbs.
Then my marriage crumbled before me, and I went back up to 270 lbs!!
Its very clear I do NOT handle stress well at all.
I'm doing well now at 252lbs. So I need YOU to recommend a Spark Team that might be of some encouragement .
Something that is NOT very time consuming but is "currently active".
This might help me stay focused while working, going to school, and being a Mommy.
Thank you so much for your support...ALWAYS!!!
Love and Prayers~Christina

Well tomorrow is my weigh in day. I'm so nervous.
I have been so anxious to get away from the 250 lb. range that I can taste it!!!
However this is a huge step in my journey... not to mention a milestone that is very difficult for me, for some reason my body does not like to let go at this stage.
In the past I would lose focus in this very moment...
Its so tough to eat the right foods, exercise, and just be mindful of everything you should be doing, then get on that and see that you either lost NOTHING or gained a pound!!! We all have been through this.
I think in my past , in this very moment of almost pushing into unknown territory I was always going through some kind of depressing moment in my life.
My health can not be put on hold because of "LIFE".
Its almost like if I can push past the 250's then I will be unstoppable!!!
Our success is NOT measured by the scale...This I know.
So at the end of this day I must ask myself if I did all I could do this week...
Tracked all of my food and fitness
Prayed for others
WATER!!! This is a huge part of weight loss. I could have done better with my water... However, I have cut back big time even on diet soda, trying to ONLY drink water (except for my coffee).
All in all I didn't do too bad, I could have pushed myself further... Could have stayed on the low end of my calorie range.
But I stayed the course, and kept focus and that is what matters!!!
As of last weigh in I was at 252.2 lbs. We will see in the morning!!!
God bless you all...LOVE YOU!!!

I hope all of you are well, and going STRONG
My eating "issues" have been no secret... I have blogged very freely about my struggles Sorry you have had to read about my whining and all my frustrations.
So I have been Praying... crying... maybe even throwing little tantrums
During all of this The Lord has led me to a NEW way of eating.
First off I had to get down to the root of the issue... Those darn CRAVINGS!!!
And how strong they were.
I don't like to talk about it... But I was diagnosed with diabetes as a teenager.
I believe in God's Healing... I have to do my part though.
I am insulin resistant. So I have always been taught to watch my carb intake...
BUT... Never to this level. I believe The Lord led many of my friends on Spark to email me... ALL of you that did emailed me about the SAME THING.
This new plan is just simply a Low Carb Eating Plan. I am eating foods I have cut out for years because they are so rich in fat.
I was shopping for the foods that were LOW in CALORIES and FATS. Therefor I was ALWAYS hungry...Never satisfied. Even though I stayed in my " carb range" on my Food Tracker I was still consuming too many carbs.
I know that this isn't right for everyone... But this is right for ME!
My body is EXTREMELY sensitive to sugar... And it was ruining my health. Even with meds, even with insulin my blood sugars were CRAZY.
I have been on this now for almost 2 weeks... The cravings are GONE!!!
The first 3 days were rough...I was very irritable.
I'm shopping now for:
I should have done this all along, but I was just looking for low calorie, and low fat.
Last night I ate, pork chops with a mushroom gravy, spinach and romaine salad, and stuffed mushrooms... It was delish!!!
If you have any tasty recipes let me know.
This takes more time because I'm cooking different, putting everything together myself... Nothing from packages. BUT I must be prepared, because the other foods still call my name
I'll keep you posted about how this new way of eating is going... This can not be a diet... This MUST be a way of life.
I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST!!! So CAN "YOU"
God Bless all of you~Christina
