I JUST found this and it encouraged me SO much:

Monday, October 11, 2010

I can't even begin to put into words what it felt like to step on the scale after one month of doing things right and finding that I had lost 7 pounds!!!!! I danced all the way to the computer! In fact, I'm STUNNED that in 3 months I've lost 20#'s with SP! The scales didn't budge for weeks and that was somewhat discouraging so I decided to only weigh once a month--WOW! I thought MAYBE 2#'s, although I could see a huge difference in my clothes and my face was looking thinner, but 7 POUNDS! Wow, that is exceeding abundantly MORE than I asked or THOUGHT possible! This was like a kiss from my BELOVED and I'm so thankful, with tears, that He would be so good to me!

So I met my goal BEFORE 11-1-10 of 17#'s which was 10% of my weight . Now my new goal is to lose 15#'s by 3-14-11 [and I've already lost 3 of those ] so here I go working, working, working towards my goals. Do you think I'm motivated to do my 4 mile walk today???

emoticon and I LOVE JESUS and I LOVE my SP FRIENDS!!!!!!
End of old blog--beginning of NEW blog! emoticon

Okay, today is a NEW day! I'm going to start over! Yes, I feel like I keep saying these words, and I'm hoping that I TRULY mean them, but I appreciate all my SparkFriends NOT giving up on me!!!!! Especially, I appreciate JESUS not giving up on me!!!!!!

    Way to go, Susan, with getting your spark back!! I, too, gained about 15 # since joining SP, but have lost 12 pounds since last year. I have to lose slowly to stay healthy but keep plugging away at it!! emoticon emoticon

    Isn't it great to have a record of your journey and then to be encouraged by your past success.

    I pray that we never tire of rebooting our programs. Today, being one of those reboot days for me after a rather stressful and emotional eating day. I had a valentines fundraiser in the house and it now seems to have found a home in my tummy. Why did I allow that to happen? Next time, I must donate to the young Christians fund without compensation . . . .yes, that will do it! Help me, Father, in the care and feeding of your temple. Send your Holy Spirit to comfort me without the need for excessive food. -- I pray this through your son, Jesus Christ. Amen

    You can do it. Quitting is not an option. As long as you keep trying, you will make it!!

Isn't it great that you can find your old blogs here on SP?? Isn't it AWESOME to be sparkedby one of your own!! Good job. It was an awesome blog you wrote, a great accomplishment you celebrated, and wise to recycle it to spark us all!! -Marsha

    Yay, Susan! Glad You are encouraged ... Glad you feel like trying it again! I pray that this day reminds you how much you are loved! By the Lord, your family, your close-by friends, and your many SP friends! We won't give up on you!

I'm in the gotta-lose-again mode, too. Since Christmas I just let me eating habits slide. But I'm back on track, and pray God makes me willing and able to do that which pleases Him ... And surely making healthy choices pleases Him!

Happy Valentine's Day with Susie2Susie emoticon
