It's been a while, but I'm still on a mission
Thursday, January 02, 2014      4 comments

I am just realizing that I have not blogged since June of 2013, so I felt it was time to give an update. I made excellent progress in 2013 even though the months of November and December featured a gain. I exercised faithfully, and I can't bla... Read more
NOW faith is the substance of things hoped for
Friday, June 21, 2013      2 comments

Hebrews 11:1 King James Version (KJV) 11 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. I want to focus on the NOW (not tomorrow). Right NOW is when our faith has to kick in and take us to the next l... Read more
God showed me who I was
Monday, March 11, 2013      9 comments

God showed me who I was, and then I was really able to be my best me. It started on July 27, 2012, when I got on the scale and it said 303. I was in pure shock. I'm not going to say it was rock bottom, but it was definitely a wake up call. B... Read more

I celebrated my 38th birthday on 2/22/2013 and had the absolute best birthday weekend ever. I don't usually do much of anything for birthdays, but this one felt special beca... Read more
Balance and Moderation, not deprivation or starvation
Thursday, February 21, 2013      4 comments

I see that I haven't blogged since August 7, 2012, and I hadn't logged on since some time in October. However, I just wanted to let you all know that God is good and He has been keeping me. I guess you can say I was busy living instead of "die... Read more
Operation Transformation

On Monday, July 30, 2012, I began "Operation Transformation." I'm looking forward to making changes from the inside out. I started the week at almost 303 lbs, the heaviest I have ever been in my life. I started working out with a health, whic... Read more
I don't need surgery; I need my Savior
Saturday, July 28, 2012      3 comments

I just took my time to write one of the most powerful, honest and cathartic blogs I've ever written. And when I pressed "post," the computer said that Google Chrome was down and the post was lost. But the devil is a liar. I'm not going to rec... Read more
I can feel the breaking of day
Friday, June 15, 2012      3 comments

It's good when you can feel yourself coming out of the dark and into the light. That darkness in our mind can be a state of denial or self abuse through poor food choices and lack of adequate exercise. I thank God for keeping me while I was in... Read more
My chocolate fast
Thursday, June 14, 2012      1 comments

I decided on June 9th to do a summer chocolate dessert and snack fast. The only chocolate allowed is meal replacement shakes because they are an integral part of my plan. However, I even had to give up the meal replacement bars because they ta... Read more
Deliver me from myself
Monday, May 28, 2012      5 comments

I've got to put in the work. No excuses. I know this process works; however, I so easily get off track. I have learned that denial is probably the biggest obstacle for my personal weightloss. Denial must end, and it starts with owning my tru... Read more
The hair had to go so the weight could go
Friday, May 04, 2012      4 comments

Women and our hair. Today, I made a choice. I used my lunch hour to cut off my relaxed hair and go natural. Now I'll be able to work out more intensely and not have to worry about how hard it is on my hair. I'll even be able to add in extra ... Read more
Believing in the process
Thursday, May 03, 2012      0 comments

I've been on this pathway enough times to know where the pitfalls all. I thank God that knowledge really is power. Like many people, I lost a ridiculous amount of weight in week one, and now week 2 and 3 are going at a snail's pace. But I'm n... Read more
Truthful Nutrition logging
Wednesday, May 02, 2012      3 comments

Have you ever had a bad eating day and just didn't want to put the information in the food tracker? I've made a vow to be honest with sparkpeople and myself. I am committed to doing nutrition tracking M-F. The weekends I still try to stick to... Read more
Using my keys to the kingdom
Thursday, April 26, 2012      0 comments

Singing, "Lord I know I been changed. The angels in heaven done signed my name." This song is on my heart because I truly believe that I'm in the midst of a supernatural transformation. Nobody but God could have changed my tears and frustrati... Read more
Loving the current me
Wednesday, April 25, 2012      0 comments

It feels great to be able to say that I'm loving the current me, fat and all. In the past, I would nit-pick about my flaws. And if a particular romantic interest rejected me because of my weight, I would be devastated. However, I can see how ... Read more
