Victory over the Food Challenged Weekend

Monday, June 24, 2013

Saturday at the graduation party I went over my calories by 134 and when I seen that I went and did another 30 min. of WATP to make up for it. I Regrouped and prayed for strength and for God to help me find my willpower for the fallowing day. My family reunion is loaded with all sorts of super high calorie goodies and casseroles and you name it its most likely there. I knew that it would be a struggle for me to not go back for more or take extra deserts as I just love deserts.. But I did it with Gods help I found my willpower and I just took one plate and put a few things on it which included some strawberry short cake my aunt made and a piece of pumpkin pie my grandma made.. a soda and a half.. I feel that It was a successful day for me.. I know now that I can restrain myself and keep control over food even in the face of so much temptation and it feels so good. I even lost 1.8 lbs when I weighed in this morning. I don't think that I can beat that..

I hope that all of you had successful weekends too... even if you didn't move the numbers on the scale or they went the wrong way.. There are many forms of success in our journey and I discovered one this weekend.. I hope that you did too.

God Bless All of YOU, emoticon emoticon
