The battle isn't over

Wednesday, April 09, 2008


I have had a real battle with being over cal range last week. But Monday I was in range but it was on the higher end and I kind of wigged out about it. I will monitor my emotions closely but the help of God. I was in cal range this evening. But the battle still goes on.

I told my hd that I would write abut him tonight. Again he brought oatmeal cookies and put them right under my nose a couple times. He does not realize how hard this is. I guese he thought it was funny but it wasn't.

By the grace of God I wasn't tempted above measure, I told him that I did not want them he could eat them. This time I made it. I realize I am making small changes for the better. The old or weak me would have taken that cookie without a thought, but God is doing a work in my life and I thank him. He has given strength to me....funny on my most worst days of eating I could always--most of the time manage to exercise. It comes more natural to me then eating correctly. Dear Lord please help me eat to live and not live to eat . Thank you Lord for your delivering power. The battle is on and I will win by the grace of God.

    Good for you on not taking those cookies. Some people just don't understand the seriousness of our disease. We will face temptations forever, but with God's help you were able to say No thanks. Keep up the great job and you'll be fine just one step at a time.

  Yes you did it you made a right choice for yourself! As for your emotional triggers you can choose to go on a journey with the Lord to deal with the root issues of why you are being driven to overeat? God is big enough to help us heal or cope better or do something else when we are bored etc.
I am dealing with things and making changes where necessary! Since i stared sp I have had major finacial stress and betrayel to boot but, I am learning with jesus help to cope healthy in stress! If i can begin to learn this anyone can! Look at my weight I had been a full time emotional eater!
God bless you on your journey and keep up the good work!

    2 Corinthians 10:4-5 (New International Version)
New International Version (NIV)

4The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 5We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

I carry this in my heart and use it when ever I have temptations. It works for me.

Love to you
Kat

    God bless you with strength to fight the battle. You are not alone! He is with you and we are your cheerleaders! I pray for DH's heart to be soooo soft toward you, broken when he treats you this way. God can change a man's heart...we can't. Let's talk to Him! :) You are in my prayers as well. God bless you as you work toward honoring Him with your entire being!!

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

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.
