This morning, I woke up to another 1.6lbs loss. I was puzzled, so I weighed on another scale and got similar result. I sat down and pondered at what is happening. This is the first time ever that I will experience such a dramatic change in my weight. This must be what is called water weight. Well, this is the first time it is coming out of my body.
I traced what could be happening and my conclusion was that it must be the reduction of Sodium in my food. Taking mostly fruits and Veggies with sodium coming in sparingly in my the fish and eggs that I eat, it should be no big surprise that I am losing weight.
I have to add that I do have a great physical activity regime. It is not just about eating healthy. I workout everyday. Each morning, at about 4am, I do an hour on my Stationary Bike. At times, I take it real easy and at times I do an interval workout. However, irrespective of which I decide to do, I stay on the bike for an hour.
As, a teacher, I make sure to be on my feet as much as possible. My Spark Activity Tracker and FitBit Flex, keep me motivated to walk-in-place as much as I can. During my Prep time, I do a 30-minute Leslie Sansone Video, a Gospel body Video, a Faithful workout video, or a Paul Eugene video. This is also a daily must for me. Whichever, I opt for, I do everyday. This is apart from my weekly 10K or any other event that I schedule.
My physical activities have always been consistent but I have never had such amazing results not ever in the process of the 62lbs that I have lost, so far. I am so happy for the inspiration to really change my eating. I have 29lbs to go. I want to stop at 160lbs. I am currently at 189.2 and started at 253lbs.
God is totally awesome!!!!

I made the decision to eat healthy before Christmas and I am already reaping the benefit. With 1lb down already, things can only get better. I have always read about getting all your daily nutrients in on simple foods but this is my first REAl experience. Eating just fruits,veggies, nuts, seeds, oatmeal, eggs, and fish. I am meeting all my nutrients and feeling so great!!!
I have no idea where this is leading me but one thing I am sure of is that I am not going back to the starting point again. I am trusting that God will help me to find my balance so I can live a sustaining life on just my bare eating necessities. I am so joyous and hopeful.
Yes, I can do this!!!!

I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits, and in his word I put my hope. (Psalm 130:5 NIV)
His words assure me that I can do ALL things by His strength, not mine.
Welcome, to December my month of FAST TRACK in all things.

This is a great time for temptation. In every aspect, from shopping and buying what you don't need, just because they come at a cheaper price, to overeating because of the festivity mood and cold weather. This year, I have promised myself not to fall into any of the traps. So, here is my plan for a healthy state by Christmas.
Abandon meat, I.e. Chicken, turkey, beef, etc. Eat majorly fruits and vegetables. Get my protein mainly from fish and eggs. Make oatmeal my companion for the month. Ok, I am not deceiving myself. I know it is going to be tough but guess what, no food can be tougher than me. I am determined to do this and will simply take it one day at a time.
I had a trial today and was successful. So starting tomorrow, December 1st, I will officially start my healthy by Christmas program. I can do this by His grace and power. I know I can.

I am an African and the peculiarities of my culture, foods, and environment aids obesity. In some cultures, a skinny lady is considered unfit for marriage. There are so many parts of my culture that sets us up for a life of obesity. To the glory of The Lord, I am out of that classification. My target is to get out of being "Overweight" in 2014. This morning, I set up a Spark group for my "People". I believe lives will be touched in 2014. I am so, so excited and pray for positive response from those who need it.
Dear Friends, pray along with me. I really want to support people to reach their goals, as I move towards mine. It is well!!!!
