No New Resolutions

Thursday, December 31, 2009

I, like a kabillion others, usually take this day to secure my New Year's Resolutions. I have alway meant to stick to them, but I don't recall ever sticking to them. The first one on the list was, "I'm going to lose this excess weight"...If only wanting it were enough.

Now with the help of my Savior, Jesus Christ, my great mini-coaches and friends here on SP, and a made up mind...I'm 4 little pounds away from my goal. Just to think that I started a few months ago in September. No resolutions, just a little medical scare the motivated me.

Once I reach my weight goal, my next is to continue until I have the great body I have always wanted. Not just thin, but very, very toned. I love seeing my muscles in my calves and upper arms. Other areas to follow shortly....

A Merry (Mary) Christmas

Sunday, December 20, 2009

I have to celebrate the time set aside to rejoice in the birth of my Savior, Jesus Christ for myself this year more than ever.

Everyone seems to hate the materialism of the celebration. Me, not so much. I couldn't care less if there are gifts to the ceiling (hope hope) as long as Jesus is the center. In fact, giving is the message of His birth...He came to give His very life on the cross so that we might have eternal life!!!!

Just like the angel Gabrial annouced to Mary that she would bear a child that would take away the sins of the world, this Mary wants to give the same response that she gave..."Be it unto me, according to you Word".... I claim His Word in my life each and every day, that's why I'm still alive after Dr.'s gave me up to die almost 10 yr.'s ago.

Since my last name is Perry, I wish you all a "Perry Christmas"!!!

Dealing with loss and maintaining health

Saturday, December 05, 2009

That dreaded phone call came the day after Thanksgiving. Craig had passed away.

My 54 yr. old brother in law had been struggling only a few weeks with a new found health issue and it had taken his life.

When life hits you with a wrecking ball the last thing you want to do is count a calorie, but I did. I made up my mind that even when life sends you a storm, keep up your healthy lifestyle, just as you need to continue breathing. I refuse to medicate with food. I will pray, shout, cry, talk or journal, but I will NOT lean on food. Food is no longer my therapy, but rather a pleasant necessity. While I cry I will only have a Kleenex and my Bible in my hand...not a brownie.

    Sorry to hear your brother in law lost the battle. Learn from his ending we all need to look efter ourselfs. Cholestrol is not bias about whom it takes out- it will take out skinny with a normal BMI as well and fat people..
All humans need to have a new view of food -eat to live and not live to eat..

Piles of trials with smiles!

Tuesday, November 17, 2009

It's tough losing weight and staying focused on your journey when life keeps adding distractions.

I think of my weight loss journey as lamaze. Life contines to bring trials and heartaches. It is so easy to get distracted...easy to remember that you once medicated with food.

Lamaze taught me that even tho my body was in childbirth agony, find a focal point and relax. It was usually a spot on the ceiling, the clock, just anything that stayed fixed while my body was working so hard. That's what SP is to me. When life is storming all around and you just want to yield to the pain, SP helps me focus on my goals and let the storm run its course.

I hope you do not lose your focus either. Life comes whether you are overweight, underweight or at your goal weight. Just stay focused on the prize!

Encouraged to encourage

Monday, November 02, 2009

I have had a change of attitude here on SP. I look at so many people that are where I want to be, and I'm ashamed to admit it, but I have felt a little jelous.

I've also looked at so many others who have so far to go, and they are motivated and determined to reach their goal.

I came to realize that no matter where you are, or who you are, you are at somebodys goal weight. I will no longer entertain negative feelings towards someone else's progress, but rather, encourage anyone I can.

    Good for you girl this is your journey not anyone elses. I too have tried to copy someones food or exercise. Hey God made me special. He said that I am fearfully and wonderously made. Hey can not lie. LOL! thanks for add me as a friend. Sounds like you too are a warrior like me. But cancer was not my battle. My health was/is being attacked. But I will go on in his name. The enemy is defeated by the blood.
