REMEMBERING MOMMA . . .
A REMEMBERING MOMMA STORY:
About a month ago we went to a Quinciniera (a 15th birthday celebration for a young lady in our village), and as we were sitting and visiting with a young couple from our village, their little girl came running u... Read more
I can remember when I thought food tracking was a restraint--something that holds you back. It certainly can feel that way, and when we begin a new, healthier eating lifestyle, it is natural to feel restrained and want to break free of the new r... Read more
IS NOT LIFE MORE THAN FOOD?
Do not be anxious for your life, as to what you shall eat, or what you shall drink. Is not life more than food? See ye first His Kingdom. Matthew 6:25-33
Why does it not surprise me that once again the Bible takes me to the heart of the ... Read more
Perspective has so much to do with our self image, and I've been thinking about the things that influence our perspective. Some of us just want to find our beautiful, younger, thinner self (that would be me! LOL!) and others find ourselves yea... Read more
Well, I've really been having a hard time believing to what extent my weight peaked. I'm just grateful I didn't reach my highest weight again. I've been back at it a week and a half now, and I am seeing some visible changes.

Consistency Pays Off
Had a pretty discouraging week--just feeling like the pounds should have been lower. I kept telling myself that I had NOT been fudging, had been exercising regularly with new alternations to keep things interesting, and I was fitting into cloth... Read more
OK, I'm making good progress again! Back down to where I was my last low. I know that ONLY means something to me, but it does! Now I can get busy with the real (aka nitty gritty) weight loss. I have learned something in the process: It's ac... Read more
Same Old Battle

OK, did amazingly well while Stateside for 3 months. Did good when I first got home. But now I've hit a slump, and I've gotta' get going! It's gotta' happen!... Read more
10 days later, and we're still going strong. The best part is that my husband is taking responsibility for his own eating choices and asking me for advice. I am respecting him on a whole new level, because I know it's taken a lot for him to do... Read more
A miracle is happening! My husband just came home from a conference with colleagues, and while he was gone 2 things happened. First, he got really sick (not so glad about that, but it's working for the best), and second, he was with a bunch of... Read more
It Stood Fast!
OK, I've got a one track mind. God just really spoke into my heart from this scripture today . . . about how when He speaks something into our hearts, it ENDURES! I got excited about that, remembering all the marvelous things He has spoken int... Read more
6 nonths later I finally make another post! I did really great, actually losing weight for a change--even through Christmas. Then I decided to relax for the week between Christmas and New Years. Well . . . I'm not really back on track yet, an... Read more
I've been part of Spark People for over a year and have made very little progress, but this week I have renewed motivation. It always takes SOOOO much energy to be emotionally, mentally, and spiritually ready to tackle the weight problem head o... Read more
