I'm really doing it!!!!

Friday, July 17, 2009

I am so excited and proud of myself. I decided to buy Alli to get me going, (I have a very dear friend who has lost 40 lbs in 3 months with it.) After reading her literature I made the move, I spent $68.00 on the Alli Refill Pak.
I read that I was supposed to log my eating habits for a week or so, just to see how I REALLY eat. I did this and saw that I am a carb/fat/sugar nightmare.
I still did not start the Alli pills as I was soooo affraid of the side effects (I was on the presc. years ago so I am familiar). I have gotten lots of encouragement from my fellow Sparkers (thank all of you so much).
Then when I finally got over my fear and decided on a start date, my Pastor announced that he felt those who are intrested, should go on a 21 day Daniel Fast. A WHAT!!!!
So well needless to say I am very interested, as I am sure that with God's help I can beat this weight/health thing I've been fighting for so many years. So I researched the ways and discovered I really like eating this way, and guess what!There is no fat in what I am eating, I do not feel hungry (I mean real hunger pains, I haven't felt hungry in years), I love the way I'm eating and I can really see me changing many of my past habits on a permanent basis (no I'm not saying I'll never eat meat or sweets).
I have only been doing this for 3 days and already I feel different around my middle body and that is very encouraging!
I just wanted to get this all out on a page so I can read about me and my progress when I need a pick me up. Thanks again for all the great support.
