Making Changes and Thanking God

Thursday, May 02, 2013

I am so very thankful for the peace that has come with this restart! I cannot remember loosing weight to be so stressless, and am so thankful to the Lord for walking with me on this journey. I am trying not to think of this as a diet. I am trying to think of it as a relearning. If I think of it as a diet at some point I will stop. I am learning a lot. Often I think I have to limit how much of something I can have and realize I can make it work, other times I think something will work and it is much different than I realize. I am praying that God uses this time to make me wiser in knowing the nutrition needed for this body and that I will learn better choices. It is taking quite a bit of effort for now, but I believe that will get easier as I find some standard meals I can work with. Peace and Blessings to all!

    You are absolutely right! This is not a diet, filled with deprivation and guilt. This program offers us all an opportunity to relearn (or learn for the first time, if we never did) information about good health, nutrition, exercise, and so much more! I predict that you will love it as you continue to work with it, and you will love the way your body feels as it starts responding to good food and exercise.

Best of luck!

Beginning again

Saturday, April 27, 2013

Well, my first week back at it and it was sucessful. I am so thankful to God for the week. I lost 6 pounds. I know that I have to do this now or I am going to have serious side effects from the diabetes. My toe is numb and it hurts at times, although it is seemingly better in just one week of really watching what I am eating. 51 weeks and a lifetime left. The goal gets me to 166? I wonder if I will want a new goal when I get there.

Week 3

Monday, September 24, 2012

Ok, a little discouraged. Only lost one pound last week, doesn't seem like I will get to my goal that way. I think I have been dilligent on tracking numbers. I did adjust my goal today slightly to be at my goal by Easter 2014 instead of my birthday. It really should be about God and not me anyway. Perhaps that should have been the goal originally anyway. Lord, please help me in restoring this temple you provided me for worship, servanthood, devotion, study and so much more. Be with me in my food selections, my exercize, my rest and every aspect of my day. Jesus, it is inYour very precious name I pray. Amen

    One pound gone is one less to lose. You didn't put the weight on overnight, so it won't come off overnight. If you lose one pound a week for 6 weeks, that's 6 lbs gone. A one pound loss is good and will get you to your goal. And a goal date is just that, a goal. If you don't quite make it by that date, no big deal. You'll still have lost weight and be healthier. There are going to be weeks were you won't lose, even though you did everything right. You just have to keep at it and the weight will come off. It just may not meet your self imposed time line. It's good to have a date you are working towards, but focus on the long term trends. You can do this.

Making Changes

Saturday, September 22, 2012

My goal is to improve my families health and not just my own. We still went out for breakfast this morning, our normal Saturday ritual, but I made wiser choices. Afterward we walked around the farmers market and bought lots of fresh veggies and fruits. Then dropped off the family, over to church to meet with my prayer partners (have not mentioned my new health plan with them, I probably weight 100 pounds more than the two of them put together) Instead of laying around this afternoon we went to the park and walked about a half mile, before the rain started, may have been as much as our daughter could handle, she was not a happy camper when we started off. Change is hard, we just need to decide we are an active family. I am feeling so much stronger and healthier. I did start the new diabetes medicine this week, not happy to need more medicine, but I am not sure how much of the feeling better is the medicine or the exercize or the diet or combination of all three. If I keep going with the exercize and diet, maybe I can back off on the meds eventually. All in all I am praising the Lord for this new perspective.
