Boot camp Bikini Challenge

Saturday, May 03, 2008


This is close as I would step near one these. emoticonIt is a virtual model. This model resembles me a lot. I could not get the virtual to come anywhere close to my bodies make up though. I am a little thinner in the waist. My chest is fuller than hers. I had to reduce the weight of the model to match how my weight looks.

My weight is 183. I am well proportioned weight wise except I am some what bottom heavy.

Measurements:

Chest: 38
waist: 36
hips: 46
thighs: 25
neck: 13
arms:13

I hope to drop 5 pounds by the end of this challenge. I am not to concerned about the bikini but I would not mind getting into one these cute suits. Hopefully be the end of this year this virtual model will be cut in half.

Dr Appointment in June

Thursday, May 01, 2008


I have a Dr. appointment in June on the second at 2:00. I want to lose at least 5 pounds before this date. He will do a test that will measure the sugar in my blood for the 3 months before. II is called an A1C test. It will determine if I am really controlled by diet and exercise alone. He will also weigh me in the electric chair. That is what I call the Dr's. scale. the nurses always say no, no, but I say yes, yes to that is what I call it. I am hoping that I can continue to treat my betes (diabetes) this way for as long as I can.

I must admit that I had a candy feast in March...yes crazy I know, but I am over that and I haven't touched another piece since then. My hd is the worlds worst sweet tooth. I will have to come up with techniques to combat this temptation for me. I will work on this activity tonight. My first course is to pray and I do. I am still learning how to use foods from the Beck Diet Solution it is a big help. She has a lot of helpful tools in her book/activity book. The team is so helpfully also. Were kinds of like a big family.

My hd is going without meat this month. So may be we can help one another. I am gong to cut my bread intake and for a while and see how things go. I will pray for his faith fast from my hd and my quest to reduce my bread carb intake. I will continue to eat healthy carbs. Fruit is included they are loaded with vitamins and minerals.

So this month I am vowing to lose 5 pounds by the help of God.
Keep exercising daily.
I will increase my 2 days of strength training to 3 days a week some time in the near future. I really hate strength training. Oh Well do it anyway As Beck would say!!!!!

I want a good report from the Dr and I intend on getting just that.

Reporting in to keep myself accountable

I saw this on another team mates spark page:

P--------------- Pray
U--------------- Until
S--------------- Something
H--------------- Happens

When there is nothing left but, God that is when you find out that God is all you need.

Take 60 seconds for this PUSH!!

The enemy tried to ruin this post but he is a liar. I tired to post this before but it would not let me. Satan I come against you in the name of Jesus. emoticon

HOW WELL DO YOU ROLL WITH THE PUNCHES OF LIFE?

Tuesday, April 22, 2008


Well if I depended on myself not too good. I have had asthma since birth. It was real hard when I was much younger. I remember most of my life not being able to breath even with Med's. Back then they did not have much meds out that would not make you nervous, or your heart race. Many nights while I was a young girl my mother had to hold me upright so I could breath. Too many hospital visits to count.

At the age of 35 I had a very close encounter with death and I was not ready to meet God. At that time I had not received Christ as savior. Through the prayers of my hd friends, his prayers, God in his mercy and kindness he brought me back to the land of living. I can say this with truth since I received Christ as savior I have not had any more asthma attacks. I believe I am healed of it. I thank him every day.


With my third pregnancy I developed diabetes and high blood pressure and I wanted so desperately not to have to deal with the regular hospital. So I found out that their were midwives at the clinic in my town. The Lord knew that I wanted that. So he provided. They worked with me even though I was what they called high risk. My blood sugars were normal. I stayed strictly to my diet and exercise routine and visited the clinic every week. Jesus was with me all the way. I was not fearful at any of the reports of what could happen to me or my baby. I walked until the second week of my ninth month of pregnancy. I started cramping and had to stop walking. The Lord was with me through all of this. So I trust him, and I know him to be a healer. If he wants me to wait for my healing for high blood pressure and diabetes I will with gladness. I say this by his grace. He is still good even with my goings thur. He will never leave or forsake me.

How well do I roll with the punches of life--- with Gods help. He helps me over them, thur them, and at times he removes them. I still give him thanks, All things work out to the good of them that trust him. My life is in his hands. emoticon

A negative plan cancelled and I am glad!!!

Monday, April 14, 2008

Today my hd wanted to eat out and I used to really enjoy going out to eat but he always eats way too much and has two desserts and will ask me if I want some.. Of course my flesh and old habits are always around. I do refuse desserts most of the times. I am always reminded that I have diabetes. I am extremely blessed to be able to control my diabetes with diet and exercise along with prayer. I only have up to 35-45 carbs to work with at lunch time. I would rather not eat up 60 carbs just to have a piece of cake or pie. It is just not worth it. I would rather have a variety of foods like fruits and veggies and whole grains. I found that these foods keep me satisfied and more healthy, and keep my blood sugars in range. I am not disappointed that we didn't go out to eat. This way I can control what I eat when I make it myself.

This emotional eating isn't easy to overcome but I am learning a new way to eat. I have had many times that I ate when I was not hungry. Now I have learned that cravings are not hunger pangs. Just a desire to eat. I have a long way to go and I am a work in progress. By the help of Christ I will overcome this battle. So not eating out is a blessing in disguise. Just posting to be accountable. emoticon I kind of blunmdered this weekend but I am back on track now. Thanks be to God.

    yeahhh for you that you did NOT have to eat out... I can sooo relate...
My hubby tends to be able to eat anything.. any time of the day or nite and NEVER gain ONE pound....
We rarely go out for meals.. and I am thankful because I also have a tendency to eat ANYTHING and everything that is on the menu if possible...
so I stick to eating at home and fixing our meals.... that way at least i have a chance to eat healthy....
well i know you are doing good at controlling your eating!!! way to go!!!
and with God on our Team.. how can we do anything but LOSE THESE unwanted pounds!!!
God bless and thanks for sharing with us on your blog~

    Good for you on not eating out. We don't eat out hardly at all for not only money reasons, but my DH is a much better cook than anywhere we can go in our small city. We've just become home bodies and I like it that way.
You are doing great. zgod is definitely helping us because I can't not eat without his help.

    I have to agree with you on the not eating out thing. I used to eat out alot before I decided to get healthy. Now I limit it to one breakfast out a week. and i'd skip that too if it weren't for the in-laws. It is soooo difficult to stay on track when eating out. and so many more temptations out there than in my kitchen. The best way for me to control what I eat is if I cook it. Not to mention, it saves a ton of money!!!

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

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!!
