Going forward in spite of road blocks!

Friday, March 28, 2008


This morning I stepped on the scale and I am down 3 pounds. That wasn't expected. Of course I have cut down on the amount of food that I ate by God grace and I have managed to stay on top of my exercise . I started not to post this because it seems every time I post something the enemy comes against me. But I am not letting him stop me. The kids have been home for a week almost and I have managed by God grace to drop a pound or two. Yes I glad for every ounce I lose.

Beck Diet say give myself credit for what I do, but without help from the Lord I would not lose. It has been my flesh that has caused me to become diabetic. Not exercising and eating what I wanted when I wanted. That got me no where. This is a new day and a new season. I am not looking at past slips up that is counterproductive and a trick of the enemy. He reminds me of my slips and I remind him of the fate that awaits him. I am free and he will be bound. I give thanks to God this for what he has done in my life.

    How wonderful! Congradulations. My Mom had told me a little quote similar to what you said.

When the devil reminds you of your past
Remind him of his future...
HELL.

We are in a constant battle and the devil is trying to trip us up at every turn. God will see us through and support and protect us along the way. What better support can we have than the Lord.

Keep up the good work.

Love, Hugs, and prayers
Michelle

Love to you

Among the land of the living!!!

Sunday, March 23, 2008


Today is the day Christ Rose from the dead. Praise God for his power that is everlasting from generation to generation. I have been sick but The Lord is healing me and I almost 100%. He gives me strength each day to endure, overcome, and thur his power bust up enemy plan. His is defeated thur the blood of the Lamb. What an awesome God we serve.

I would be the first to say that I am a fighter but I believe that strength comes from Christ we strengthens me. I have never been the type top use my illness to give up on this race against diabetes and these other irritants.

I want to pick up where I left off but I will have to keep reminding myself to go easy for now. I have been working on some new goals and retool the ones that i have. I will be using calorie cycling to see if I can get the scale going again. I struggle badly with water. I am trying things like using crystal Light as to make to water more appealing to me.

I have some new idea for exercise that I will post later. Just a note to be accountable to myself and let the enemy know that he has not seen the last of me.

On this day by me feeling better I am reminded that Christ power never ends, neither does his mercy. I am very thankful. I must say A BIG thank you to the Gods Prayers Warriors team. The members have so supportive in my time of sickness.

    Glad that your feeling better and yes God will see us through. I need to remind myself of this daily and realize his grace will see me through. I sometime forget and try to rely on myself and end up failing. I need to focus my eyes on him this week and let his strength enpower me. I thank you for this reminder of our God and how loving he his. Let's make the week the best and we will fight this together.

Love in Christ,
Cherly

Success with Gods help--Beck and friends

Thursday, March 06, 2008


First yesterday was extremely hectic. My computer went crazy and I thought it had a virus and I began to panic but I remember before what I done before I joined spark people. I keep everything on pad and pencil. I use that for backup in case I can't get on the computer or the computer blows up. God forbid that!!!!!

Any way yesterday went well as for as my eating and exercising. I am have trying to make it habit to eat mindfully as per Beck suggestions. I remember my grandfather saying he chewed bites of his food 30 times. Boy that will take some time, but I tried it and that helped me to slow down with my eating.

I struggle with eating in front of the tv especially at dinner time. The news comes on and I want to watch it. Well I'll keep working at it until I master that too.

I woke up to a pleasant surprise I have lost 2.8 pounds YAY FOR ME. Just a little note to keep me going and accountable this new life style and it is still new to me. Does matter how long I have been here what matters is that I haven't given up. I have to say of course thanks be to God and Jesus for giving me the strength.

Oh yea my know it all teenager came home and the crazy computer worked for him. He tried to tell me what was what. I rebuked him and went on with business.

2.8 Oh Yea!!!!

    My mother always said to chew 25 times. Sometimes she would sit there and count the number of times I've chewed. It was annoying, but now I understand why she said that. I just need to practice it again.

Congrats on the weight loss!

without a cause

Tuesday, March 04, 2008

I went over on my lunch allowance without a cause except I didn't eat breakfast on time instead I had brunch. That never works for me. I know better but it could not be helped. I will just have to plan for the unexpected some how. I did not go over cal range but I have just enought to get in a small meal in. I am not defeated, just thrown a curve. But I have had curves thrown at me before. Oh Well!! As the Beck Card would say. I will go on and begin my binge free month over again. Life will happen, but all is not lost. I have Christ on my side. Just a note for accountabillity to myself.

Out to lunch!

Monday, March 03, 2008


me and hd went out to lunch this afternoon. I read my Beck Book last night.

A few rules.

1. Take small bites and chew slowly.
2. Finish chewing and swallowing each bite before you put more food on your fork.
3. Put your utensils down before you pick them up again.

4. Take a sip of water every minutes or two.

At first I thought that this was crazy and I would not have time to eat slowly
but it worked. I feel good about this. I copied down on a card these rules and took them with me. I felt fuller. But my hd had about two plates of food along with two desserts when I was just finishing my salad with protein. Thank to all my friend on the prayers warriors and other teams. Most of all I give praise to God.
