Winter 5% Challenge

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

This is my first ever attempt at a public weight loss Challenge and my inclination is towards fear...but I have chosen instead to have determination take over, I have begun making "Fear Not" note cards and I will overcome... 5% of 224# is 11 pounds in 8 weeks..Lord, help me do this for your glory, the good of the team and the health of that loss in areas of physical abilities to move better, the lowering of blood pressure and the decrease in pain in knees and ankles. May I learn more good nutrition that can continue on the lifestyle of gluten free and anti-inflammatory which I have been learning. And may I Crave God , not food in daily life from this day forward. Now help me figure out how to put this into a format that others can relate too and I long to be a good team-member whatever that entails.

    Remember Linda; it is a victory to try (even if you fail) than never to have tried before. Actually I signed up for that team, and then when I read all the qualifications, I knew it wasn't for me right now in this season. So I have tremendous respect that you are trying it and I pray God strengthens you and uses you through it! emoticon

    To struggle with fear is normal even for Christ Followers. But praying for God's leading is a true way of overcoming. emoticon Jane

    Linda, I've done the 5% challenge several times and am signed up for this one as well. Sometimes I reach my goal and sometimes I don't, but being a part of the challenge team has always been a great learning experience, and fun! What team are you on? I'm a "Casual Traveler". Good luck, and don't stress over it!! You'll do fine!
