the good, the bad and the ugly

Monday, September 29, 2014

The good is I didn't break anything, the bad is I fought with my Kirby sweeper and it won and the ugly is the bruises I acquired in my fall. Yes I did. I flat laid out like a board and my Kirby was flat under me. It saved my surgical knee but you know what? It has made me more determined to get control of my weight, health and not give up... I am stubborn that way emoticon . So I am sharing this to the other clumsy people out there...just keep trying.

fear or love

Friday, September 12, 2014

I heard someone ask a question that has caught my attention. The question, "do you want to live from fear or love?" Fear of failure keeps you from moving forward, fear keeps you from rest, peace and life. I used to say, " when I lose such and such then..." , it was a fear thing. I was afraid I would be rejected, made fun of and be ignored for my size so I never would try. Loving oneself is not selfish, it does not mean to become so self-centered that it becomes a bad thing. Loving oneself is coming to realize that you are worth the effort. That God so loved you He sent His Son to die for you...do you realize how loved you are? I have a motto that I am fond of posting to remind not only others but myself.. I AM ACCEPTED IN THE BELOVED. I chose love.

    Your post really gave me something to think about today. Thank you for posting it, I can relate to this question and am going to use it as part of my meditative process.

Prayer(daily meditation, a quiet time with my Lord) plus water, writing(keep food journal), walking (exercising), weighing once a week and word(feeding my spirit man as well) equals victory.
I wrote this today to remind myself of the plan that works for me. People ask what plan do you do? The answer is P+5w=v...
There is a scripture that had I took to heart my whole life that would have changed where I am at and it ends with 'Let your soul delight itself in fatness,' Had I fed my soul instead of my face well you get the gist. I hunger for an more intimate walk with the Lord Jesus. I am not far from Him but I want His anointing in my life even more. He knew that I would be where I am today so I do not weep and wail , but I want to become healthier not only in my physical man but my spiritual man. And the Lord says ," COME!"


Life long starting overs

Saturday, September 06, 2014

Life long, life style, they both have a common root which is LIFE. I used to think I will lose my overage and then. My mind has finally accepted that while I may get to my "goal" my struggle will not be gone. Obesity, such an ugly word, is a life long chronic disease/struggle. I ran into a friend who had got to her goal and in the past 2 years put 2/3 of it back on. Her problem she reached her goal and let her guard down. I was down at one point to 192. I am now starting over at 229, I let my guard down. I have finally got it into my stubborn head that I must treat this as a chronic situation. Much like diabetes it must be monitored and treated daily. Daily until when...forever. In a perfect world we would all get to our goals and stay there. We do not live in a perfect world, big surprise, right? MY SOLUTION-- I did not fail, my friend did not fail and if you are starting over, you did not fail. You and I my dear ones have been "Practicing for success"

My last blog entry was many moons ago. I was finally healthy(or so I thought) to beat the old carcass into shape. Boy was I wrong about that one. Good news is I am finally allowed at 58 years old to get in the YMCA warm pool and do arthritis based water exercises with 65-85 year olds and yes they just about killed me, haha. I will say that I am not as far behind as I was in my 40's when I was completely sedentary and 275 pounds. So I have encouraged myself to start once again and once my muscles get used to the idea of working out again I will add Silver sneakers.. yes it has come to that. I complain to my husband I look like a granny and he sweetly reminds me I have 3 grandkids and I am a granny. MY goal is to get strong enough to get back in the cold water pool and swim that half mile a day. I got so much pleasure from that and could set my own pace and my own challenges. Well enough rambling for today..Ya'all be blessed. emoticon
