Giving Thanks..........

Tuesday, November 13, 2007

I am thankful to God because through him all things are possible, I have tried quick fixes to lose weight yet through prayer and doing what I need to do I have come to a plan that truly works. He is working on me and in me to keep me in the right direction.

I am thankful for my spark friends who keep encouraging me and working with me to ensure that we reach our goals. I know that Failure Is NOT an option here.

I am thankful all throughout he year, but giving that this is the month for giving thanks I decided to write a special blog to let everyone know what they mean to me!!! This journey could not be successful without any of you!!! Everyone is a vital part of this accomplishment, I cannot wait to reach the finish line!!!!

November is here.....

Saturday, November 03, 2007

The time is here for me to focus on what I have been lacking on for the past few weeks. I seem to be lacking on my motivation. I have it inside, I just have not been using it to the fullest. I am going to start using it more from now on. I have a ways to go and I know that positivity will help me get further in the process.

Sometimes in order to move forward we need to look back, pull from that and use it to improve.

    Hey Red,

You have the determination to see this through. Remember that the race is not given to the swift, but to those that endure until the end!! Hang in there and stay focused on your goals. -T

    RED_V, glad to hear that you are finding your focus again. In ref to a ways to go, If you haven't tried 5lb goal increments, they very doable and very motivating. Hang in there. GTF

    You are not along. Congtratulations for not giving up! I look back at the foods or amounts I ate and should have not and aim to improve on my next days meal. This will not be like the past dieting experiances we have encountered. We will stick to our goals and change habits not just the scale's amount from week to week. Keep up the good work and make improvements based on your imperfections, God did it with us. God will see your determination and those temptations will have to yeild to his blood. Please keep posting those inspirational blogs and read mine as well.

Time...........Reflections........

Sunday, October 14, 2007

I know that here goes another year, another month, another week, another day, another minute, and another second. Time after time I have tried to reach my goal but this time I can say for 16 months, I have actually been giving it my all. Not to say that this journey has been a perfect route without the back lapse, the extra donut, the tears of defeat or even the lack of will power, however this time is different because I am going to cross the finish line. This time I have not given up and I have come thus far, too far to step back and let all of my hard work go down the drawn. 220 ville is trying to hold me here, some say it may be my stopping point but I say NO WAY!!! TOM comes along and brings friends here, I don't like his friends I refuse to think that this is my stopping point, I know that I can get down and trust me we are moving on. 220 Ville I am busting lose. I want OUT of here. You can not hold onto me. 16 months and still going strong........I am moving on!!!!!2 more weeks left of Oct I want to move to 210 ville!!!

    Girl, I don't know what it is about those 220s, but I felt the same way. I just kept telling myself, "This too shall pass", but it seemed like forever. Now, the 200s are trying to keep me, but I'm bustin' loose. You'll be outta there soon and be able to look back and know that you'll never be there again!!

    You go girl! That is the spirit I'm talking about. You got to speak those words over your life ( I need to be taking notes). We can do all things through Christ that strengthen us...Amen??.....Amen!
