Slowing down but staying positive

Monday, August 31, 2009

My progress seems to be slowing down. The closer I get to re-enlisting in the military the harder it is to lose the weight. I pretty much live at my local YMCA and eat like I should but the results are not what I want them to be. I know I am losing inches which is good but that will not get me in the military. They don't care if you drop 50 inches if you are not under max weight standards then you can forget joining. I want to sign my enlistment papers before the end of September so I can try to leave out in January for Boot camp. I have tried to schedule everything so that I will be done with all my training around the time my oldest gets out of his school for summer vacation. That would give me plenty of time to relocate and enroll him into the local Christian school there (if they have one). That is the only thing I am going to hate is if they don't have a Christian school where we move to. I love the school he attends now. He is only 6yrs old and can tell you almost any Bible verse in the Bible and what that verse means. He writes in cursive, reads on a second grade level, and does math on a second grade level. We struggle financially but I will do without stuff to ensure my children have the best education. I went to a public school growing up so I know what they teach and how it contradicts my beliefs. We didn't come from monkeys and I will not have someone tell my babies that we did. My God made me in his image. God has help me overcome my weight issues along with every other problem I have ever faced. If you put your faith in God he will give you the strength to accomplish anything. " I can do all things through Christ who strengtheneth me." Phillipians 4:13
