Just things

Wednesday, April 11, 2007

Well I went to my TOPS weighin yesterday and I knew it wasn't going to be good. I had a gain of 2.25, making it my highest weight ever at 319. I know that constipation has a lot to do with it and I am dealing with that now. I also know my eating was way out of control but I also am improving on it.

I went to Curves first thing this morning and that made me feel a little better, but I will get in a walk this evening too.

Spark friends have a blessed day.

My Weightloss Prayer

Monday, April 09, 2007

Prayer For Dieters

Lord God, it is said that every journey begins with
one step. For this reason I bring to You my request that
You help me to start to lose weight. Help me to take
the first step to restoration.

I have watched hopelessly as the weight has piled onto
my body. I am now overweight and obese. I excused my
gains with anxiety, aging, metabolism, boredom,
countless things: I can not list the many ways I used excuses
to prevent myself from taking action to begin my
weight loss journey.

I am frustrated and really do not know where to begin.
However, I know the good news that declares, "With God
nothing is impossible." Therefore I bring to You this
problem with my weight, and I cast it at the foot of
the cross as I ask for Your divine help and wisdom.

I pray that You will lead me to a sensible solution
day by day. Keep me from fads, quick gimmicks and yes,
even eating disorders as I try to bring my weight down
again to a normal range.

We are told that patience is a virtue, and I pray that
as this weight dissipates at a slower rate then the
gain appeared that I might do my part day by day with
the gift of the Holy Spirit operating--and that is

I ask that You might lead me to information and
support that would set me free from this bondage I appear to
have with food.

I ask that You might give me a clear mind at every
meal that I will not overindulge, but eat only my daily
bread that is promised to us.

I ask that You might teach me about choices and
nutrition that I might give up the foolish things that I eat
in lieu of healthy choices.

I ask that I might be in health as Your Word promises
by beginning to eat in a healthy manner.

I ask that You bless my efforts and keep me far from
discouragement as I begin this journey.

I thank You, Lord that no need is to small or
significant that I can not bring it to Christ.

I plead with You, Lord for help in this area that is a
real sore spot with me.

Help me Lord, to be a good witness in all I do: Eat,
drink, whatever. Restore me to a normal body size, and
I do promise to glorify Your name, through Christ
Jesus. Amen

I'm Ready :)

Sunday, April 01, 2007

I'm ready to move forward, in my weight efforts, in my school, in my faith.

I will exercise daily 15-45 minutes per day, I will have my milk & fruit servings daily, I will journal everything daily. I will do my homework, I will read my Bible daily, I will seek GOD in everything I do & see.

Heavenly Father, I need you, please give me courage, confidence, and comfort. Thank you for everything you have done and will do for my family, friends and I. Amen

Last as I was going to bed and I felt so sad, while thinking of my son and I wanted so bad just to hug him. I asked GOD why, why can't I just hold him one more time? Then I remembered this little bean bag lizard that my son had given me and it holds a braided piece of his hair. I held it so close and I felt as if I had my son with me for a moment. I could feel his love reaching me as I stroked his braid and knew he was real. THANK YOU GOD for giving me comfort.
One more thing, I had just bought a solar light (blue with a metal angel that encirles the globe) and I set out in the sun on the weekend. Yet it never lit up and I was about to take it back to the store but last night as I made one more check of the house I saw the globe and it was glowing. I felt so good about that. I finally took it to the cemetary this evening for my son.
Well I didn't to Curves today as it was one of those rush rush things and it just got too late. It will probably be the same tomorrow as my car is getting fixed and I am going to be babysitting my grandbaby. If I can find one of my walk-away-the-pounds CDs then I can probably do that.
Well I am off for my beauty rest.
Blessings to all who read this

I stepped on the scale the other day and it said 273! not I know that couldn't be true, but my thoughts turned YES! I could happen. So I know things are not impossible I can and will get down that weight, I will make one of my short term goals, so 273 here I come.................... :)

(My scale sits by the dog food and someone had spilled some near it and a couple pieces got stuck under my scale which made it read that.)
