Need encouragement!!

Tuesday, December 02, 2008

yes, i am in need of encouragement!! and isn't this the right place to get it? i believe it is. i have had contact with some amazing people here. And this is where i have finally been able to lose weight with out taking pills, trying some fad diet, or any of those other things we have all tried and failed at. And i am NOT, repeat, NOT going to fail this time. I am victorious in Christ. And God says that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. And I believe in Him and what His Word says. So if He says it, I can do it! There have been some really rough spots these past two months, but I am as determined now as I have ever been and then some. I gave in and ate like i had never eaten before ever since hurricane Gus. Gained back about 6 pounds(yuck!!!)BUT, I am not giving in. I WILL lose eleven pounds by Christmas. My gift to myself is to be under 200 by then. So I am asking those of you that are in my sparkteams and anyone else that may read this to please just give me nudge once in a while and I will be ever so grateful. It will bless me so much to know that someone out there understands what this is like. I will pray for all of you that are on this same journey...that you succeed and go forth with great energy and that the Lord blesses you with all that your heart desires. God bless you all and thank you for reading(listening) to me sort of vent.

    You said it and I believe we can do it. I set one goal at a time. Some times they are small, but if it is achieved it is one step in the right direction. Don't look at your mistakes. Just look at what you did right. You probably are already doing some of the things I needed to do. I started with Reading a chapter of the Bible a day and looking for whatever the Lord might have to say that day. I found it is being consistent which I just couldn't do. But setting one goal helped me greatly. I am still stumbling from time to time, but I tell my self each step is getting there. I could be discouraged because the scale hasn't gone down like I want it to. Mostly because exercise isn't my thing. Today I got some time in on the machines in the exercise room. I think the suggestion to get a DVD is good. Use it at home. I ordered a pedometer. If nothing else I'm going to use it when I go shopping. Especially when you park a little further from the store each time you shop. If you push or carry a kid around that should really help. If you don't have a car go for a walk with the kids or push them if the weather is permissive. These few suggestions may not light a firecracker under you- just to let you know we care. Could use a a push in the right direction now and then myself. Notice I said not a shove just a push, gentle push. You have my prayers Sis.
    emoticon Just visited your Spark page and love it, especially those darling grandchildren. Take care of yourself. They deserve to have you around.
