  You're doing great! Just think of this as a little pause at the top of the roller coaster before your weight starts plunging down again.

Be still and let God

Thursday, March 04, 2010

God does his job most EXCELLENT!

I am learning what Let go and Let God means.

1. Simply be still do NOT try to fix anything about situation
I am NOT in control, I can not control it.
I did not break it
I can not mend it
Just let it be.


Laugh-it is more than ok
Dance--doesn't have to be perfect
Dance like no one is watching ( they are not, they are worried about their own stuff :)
Eat well
Permission to engage with others
Plan vacation
Consider and explore a simple job --consider all possibilities
I wanna lose this fat around my waist!! It has to go next or I am going to look awfully funny with tooth picks for legs holding up a gigantic pumpkin belly!!

Right now I have legs the right size --but a big ol' waist--big blouses do NOT hide it!!

I have been thinking of the old ladies i saw as a kid who carried around a chair pad--I now know why!! I have lost the padding on my rear end and can't sit straight up the bones are right there!!

    Let God do it.
BUT be careful what you wish for
You may get more padding than requested.

A good reminder

One who lacks courage to start has already finished.

Never doubt in the dark what God told you in the light. (Raymond Edman)

emoticonI can do this.
1. This month I will eat well

2. Exercise

3. Enjoy when folks fix me something special and eat it in a normal way and portion!

4. I will

Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

~~~Ephesians 6:13

This is one of the greatest of all techniques of mental health.

It teaches that when we have done all that we can do about a given matter, we are not to get worried or in a panic or be filled with anxiety, but take a calm philosophical attitude concerning it.

When you have done all that you can do, don’t try to do any more, just “stand.”

1. Relax, stop.

2. Be quiet, don’t fuss about it; you have done everything possible.

3. Leave the results to God.

Food as a drug

Tuesday, March 02, 2010

I have used food to smooth over the ruff parts of life. Ya know, it does NOT work.
The problems are still there when the stuffing is done--then another problem has been added. emoticon
NOw, that I am usually not reaching for food to solve my feelings I am sad more often,

This too will become a thing of the past--I just have to let the feelings be and just exercise, and find other things to think of.

There are many articles written on the subject of tension eating. The bottom line is I have to feel the feelings --face the root of the feelings--then wait for the feelings to dissolve.

Did I mention that I didn't sign on for this life???????? Ya know I was wanting the one I saw advertised as a kid--Beaver and Father Knows Best--

The tricky part is facing the reality of the root of the feelings--no one else can fix it for me. DERN!! emoticon emoticon

The answer is eat well, take care of myself, and enjoy exercising--the sign of success at the end of the day!!!

With the help of Spark friends I will lose this weight and be the healthy person within!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Exercise works wonders for me. I have become addicted to it instead of food and feel like a whole new person. Just give it some time to work. And combined with eating healthy and weight loss you'll feel fantastic!
Keep on keeping on,
