First Week of Plateau

Sunday, April 19, 2009      2 comments

I've been with Spark People for a month now, and this is the first week I've not lost any weight. Over the previous three I had lost 10 lbs so perhaps my body needed a break! I've eaten the same, exercised the same, etc. so I don't know what's h... Read more

Thanks be to God, I just recalculated my BMI for the first time in three weeks (when I started Spark People) and, having lost 10 lbs, I've eaked out of the "obese" category! A score of 30.0+ is over the line, 29.9- is under, and I'm at 29.7! Awf... Read more

Christ Died for our Sin--Which Includes Indulgence

Friday, April 10, 2009      1 comments

At the end of the day, the reason I'm so overweight (about 50 lbs) is that I'm a self-centered, indulgent person. If I had simply obeyed the Lord and treated my body as he would have me, I would have enjoyed food very much--after all He gave it ... Read more
