I'm here!!! July 2011--No Words...I have almost gained back every lb! I know what to do...Pray with me...My plan works and so does Sparkpeople.com
May 2010-- I am 40 lbs from goal and more determined than ever to reach the weight loss goal, but just as determined to adopt a permanent healthy lifestyle. I am committed to walking at least 30 mins 3x a week. I will continue a low carb, low fat diet and drink at least 8 glasses of water daily. I'm loving it!!! Keep praying for me because this is certainly a journey and I am powerless without HIM...
Dec 2009--lost and regained again. But I'm back because everyone needs to know that we have a right to try again. I love me enough to try to be victorious in every area of my life and when I don't win, I have to try again. GOD is with me for total victory and with HIM, I can master everything that comes against me!! So again...I am submitting what I am powerless against to the All mighty, All powerful GOD!!! I've Started Again!!!!
2008--I experienced great victory in weight loss and gave back some ground that I had conquered. I recognize that and I am off to recommitting and total victory...
I began this journey during the last week of January 2007. I weighed an embarrassing 229 lbs--the most I have ever weighed! Birth weight 10 1/2 lbs and battled weight beginning at 8 yrs old as my social life became challenging when I changed schools. I am a witness that GOD uses everything in our lives for our ultimate good. Rom 8:28
Dec 2007: Here we are in the last month of 2007 and I weigh an impressive 155. I have lost a total of 74 lbs!
Jan 2008: From 225 to 143. I weigh 158 and I am 15 lbs from goal!!! To GOD be the glory!!!
May 2008--Gained some weight and now have 28 lbs to go instead of the 15 I had to lose when this year began. I am now 171 and back on task. Please keep praying for me. As I have now learned, this is a lifestyle change; A marathon; A mountain. And I am being transformed, a runner, an athlete, a winner in JESUS' Name!
Update!!! ***The Remix
10/2008--I have gone back on my word and done what I never wanted to do. I am experiencing what happens when I take my eyes off JESUS. I looked good, and other people thought I had lost too much. I also missed some previously enjoyed, bad habits regarding food and slipped back into them. But I can certainly say that nothing tastes as good as my goal weight looks!
Starting Remix Weight--189 lbs
10/ 1: 186.6 ( rejoined the gym)
10/ 8: 181.0 -5.6 lbs!
10/15: 180 -1lb reasonable weight loss. Yea!!
10/22: 179.3 -.7 lbs NoMo PB&J!
10/29: 174.4 -4.9 lbs
11/5: 173.8 -.6 lbs ok results but I gotta step it up. GOD forgive me, thank you for losses instead of gains! PTL!
11/12 175.75 +1.95
Thank you to all those who stopped by to remind me that I can still reach my goal and that I am still here to do what GOD assigned me to do. Let's get losin'!!!
It is no secret but for most people, it's too good to be true. When I say to people I prayed and told GOD that "eating was something I had no control over and since this is the Year of Perfection and Completion, I will add my eating habits to the list of things I am turning over to YOU because I am unsuccessfully handling this myself", they can't embrace it.
That saddens me because if I told them about a pill or a new diet or some trickery, they would try it, but here I am, successfully losing weight at a healthy average of 2 lbs a week, without being hungry or weak. I am also walking, doing crunches and fitness DVD's yet people want to try something that is familiar.
Why not try GOD? Has HE ever failed? Is HIS record proven? Won't HE do it? Look at the pictures! The ticker!
Try GOD, with your life first, (Rom 10:9,10) and then with your Weight ((Phil1:6; Ps 138:8). I am looking to hear your results.
** My Program is listed in the right column. Check it out then try it! Maybe it will work for you too!
Final weight goal of 143--
As of 2/24/2008, I am 15 lbs away from my goal!
As of 10/1/2008, I am 46 lbs away from my goal!!
As of 11/01/2008, I am 30.4 lbs away from my goal!!
If I cheat, I'm only cheating myself because GOD has proven to me that it can be done and I can do it!
*****If You Are Struggling...*****
Begin today saying these words from the WORD of GOD--They are spirit and life...
I can do all things through CHRIST who strengthens me...Phil 4:13
We are more than conquerors through him that loved us...Rom 8:37
The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous and HIS ears are open to their cry. Psalm 34:15
My prayer is...GOD thank you for all things in YOUR blessed Name. Thank YOU for JESUS, my Savior and the HOLY SPIRIT who indwells every believer. Thank YOU for victory over my eating habits, changing my desires and giving me total victory, helping me to lose weight, watch my intake and become more healthy.
In JESUS' Name, Amen.
I pray over everything I eat and drink. I pray when I am hungry and shouldn't be and I pray to be satisfied with what I have eaten. I thank GOD in the morning for victory over food that day. I thank HIM during my workouts for blessing me to be an overcomer and not a quitter. I pray that I will finish my 45 mins of cardio without giving up.
I pray a lot about these things because I have spent my whole life being defeated in these areas. I hope you will do the same.
To GOD be the Glory!!!
