New Beginnings

Wednesday, February 13, 2008


Butterflies are a sign of New Beginnings. I have recently joined the Beck Diet team. I have started reading the book. I saw a lot of me in it. I have posted in one of my blogs that I would not buy any more diet books. I have even had a fellow team member say that they to buy diet books but they don't apply them. That is in the past for me.

I have just finished posting what I ate for the day. To my shock I didn't do over cal range this is miracle. I am grateful to God who strengthened me. I did have two cookies. But Gusse who brought them in the house. HD. I had the choice to walk by them but I choose to eat them. Hopefully one day I will be able to walk by them.

So I will keep posting what I ate daily. I was not fooling anyone but myself if I didn't post what I ate. When doing so I can see totally what I ate and be honest with myself.

My exercise had begun again. I had a cold and could not exercise for a week. I hated every moment of that. Even when I have eaten everything but the kitchen sink I could always push up the strength to exercise.

Tonight I did 20 min of aerobics and 20 min of strength training. my Cal was 1391--- I am allotted 1200-1600 range. I did not go over the sod range, and I had 26 grams of fiber.

I have posted so I know that they enemy will tempt me. I will ask the Lord for strength and I believe he will do it for me. Here's to New Beginnings. I can make it and I will make it with Gods help.

Dear Lord I thank you for you watching over me last night. I praise you for my family circle not being broken. I ask that you strength all those who believe in you and that you please send your saving powers to those who don't know you.

I am grateful just to be able to take a breath. I pray for a speedily recovery for myself. I ask that you please put your hand of mercy on my children and family this wednesday. In your holy name I pray amen.

This picture of tweety and the words made me laugh. Laughter is good for the soul.

    Do,

With your loving spirit to bring all things to the Lord and to always keep your family in prayer, I know that God is going to do something marvelous in your life.

You my friend, are a great inspiration to me to keep on praying no matter what and to keep the enemy under my feet where he belongs.

I pray for a special blessing in your life today my friend. That God may grant you your heart desire.

Love You!

UPDATE WITH DR. I SAW HIM AT 1:30. HE GAVE ME ADVAIR DUSKUS 500/50 TWICE A DAY FOR TWO WEEKS. (NO PREDINOSONE THE THING I HATE). NO I'M NOT OVER JOYED WITH TAKING MEDICINE BUT UNTIL I REACH HEAVENS GLORIOUS GATE I WILL ENDURE. CHRIST IS MY STRENGTH WHAT OR WHOM SHALL I FEAR. HE HAS BEEN WITH ME THUR THICK AND THIN. HE EVEN SHOWED (DR.) MERCY AND DIDN'T GET ON MY CASE ABOUT GAINING A FEW POUNDS. I AM VOWING THAT IT WILL COME OFF.(NO EXCUSES) THESE POUNDS WILL COME OFF IT IS JUST A MATTER OF TIME. HE OK'D SOME LIGHT EXERCISE. WE BOTH AGREED THAT I NEED TO KEEP MOVING. I AM GOING FORWARD IN SPITE OF. I WANT TO SAY A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO ALL THE PRAYER WARRIOR TEAM FOR THEIR CONTINUED PRAYERS. THANK YOU JESUS.

ONTO OTHER MATTERS I JUST STARTED READING THE BECK DIET DIET BOOK. I THINK THIS BOOK AND MUCH HELP FROM THE LORD AND MY FAITH IN HIM I WILL FINALLY OVERCOME THIS EMOTIONAL EATING ROLLER COASTER. THE BOOK SPOKE OF MANY SABOTAGING THOUGHTS SOME I COULD RELATE TO:

1. I KNOW I SHOULD NOT EAT THIS, BUT I DON'T CARE.

2. IT IS OK IF I EAT )THIS FOOD) JUST THIS ONE TIME.

3. I'VE HAD SUCH A HARD DAY. I DESERVE TO EAT THIS.

4. I CAN'T RESIST THIS FOOD.

5. I'M UPSET AND I HAVE TO EAT.

6. I ATE SOMETHING I SHOULDN'T. I MAY AS WELL KEEP EATING.

7. THIS IS HARD I DON'T WANT TO KEEP DIETING.

8. I'LL NEVER LOSE WEIGHT.

I GIGGLED TO MYSELF BECAUSE I CAN RELATE TO # 4 AND 5. SO FAR THIS BOOK IS A GOD SEND TO ME.

    Do,

God answers prayer. No prednisone...I also am on advair 500/50 and it is very good. I take it also twice a day. You will lose the weight in time.

But remember that our time is not gods time. I am always praying for you my sweet sister.

Love Ya!

    Glad you didn't have to be on prednisone. I'm on Advair Diskus 500/50 as well. I was just taken off throphylline because it has too much caffeine he said, just like coffee.

You will lose the weight for you and you will succeed because you want to. With you and God in this thing together you cannot fail!

    Do...you are such a blessing to us all, God is the great physician and if it is in His will for you, He will heal you. Sometimes I get so tired and forget this. I just hate taking pills, never have had to before and now my day starts with them. Giving up the foods I loved, the caffeine I lived on and chocolate has been hard for me. I put it in God's Hands because I know that He has a purpose for me still, and I cannot do His will if I am always sick. So every morning, I thank Him for this body He has gave me, I thank Him for the doctors He has sent me to, and I praise Him for His love for me.

And I humbly ask Him to help me get through each day without discouragement and to keep my life in His hands and not to take it back into mine.

Blessings to you and thanks for sharing your blogs with us. We walk this journey next to you, holding hands and singing praises and loving the Lord.

Mondays visit

Sunday, February 03, 2008


Mondays visit to the doctors makes me a little nervous. I am writing because I don't to end up eating. I know a double minded man is unstable in all his ways. I am not thinking the worst. I know all things are possible to them who believe. I just don't want dr to prescribe any sterods. (prednosone) makes my blood sugars go up.

Please increase my faith Dear Lord. Take control of this visit tomorrow and please give dr wisdom for my care tomorrow. Pleae renew his attutide and show favor on my behalf. In the name of Jesus I pray Amen.

One word JEANS!

Thursday, January 31, 2008


Today is Thursday-------Tuesday I went to the store and tried about 4 pairs of JEANS on-- only to find out that none fit right. Either they were too tight on the thighs or too lose in my waist. I have been just reminded that my battle with food isn't over.

I would be a liar if I said I didn't feel little let down at that time, I am a true pear shape and it is difficult to find pants to fit me. I hope the next time I want to reach for that second cookie or second whatever I'll be reminded of my pear.

I was a little down then, but I am not out and about to give up NO WAY!! I will never be a size 4 and nor do I want to be that size but I would be happy to be a size 12 that would be great. I am a size 14 now.

I mainly want to be healthier and keep diabetes at bay. I am looking forward to losing this weight not only that but learn a new way of eating . This is not the end of me just the beginning. God is poweful and I am leaning on him for strength without Christ I can do nothing.

    Do, I admire your attitude. I can relate to not being able to find jeans that fit well. With your positive thoughts, you will make it. I think I'm a pear too. Oh boy, we can peel that one down, though.

    Way to go. I like your attitude. I would be very happy with a size 14 also. In June I was an 18 and am now down to a 16. Really though, wouldn't it be nice to be down to a 3 or 4 just for one day. Go out to the stores and try on anything and everything, just for one day, and know it will fit? I don't think I want to be that small, as I said, I will be very happy at a 14. But it sure is nice to dream. And without dreams, we would be dead.

Keep up the good work.

Brenda
