Weight in...

I'm a day late posting this, but crazy times!!  The scale isn't my friend right now.  My weight hasn't changed in about a month.  It isn't going up, but it isn't going down either.  If I'm honest with myself I am not eating exactly like I was.  I'm not doing terrible, but not as good as I could be.  I have been walking which I still H.A.T.E!!! I am able to watch Direct TV on my iPad that helps. I'm doing it because I need to and I think it "excites" my husband!!!  wink wink ;)  I do have a sense of accomplishment when I finish and a feeling of wet!!!  I'm really looking forward to Steve being able to do some stuff with me.  He has diabetes (thanks to steroids) now so we are working on that diet as well as trying to help him loose some weight.  He still isn't able to exercise and that could not happen till the beginning of next year.

This week I am going to continue to walk everyday and get back on my weight lose diet!!!

Have a great week!!!

This ISN'T What God Wants for Me!!

I have come to realize that the way I feel about myself isn't the way God wants me to feel.  God loves me even fat, but he has given me this "vessel" and I have not taken care of it the way God wants me too.  But he gives me GRACE!!  He gives me HOPE!!!  He gives me STRENGTH!!!

This week I am going on His strength to over come all those defeating thoughts that have been my reality.
"May these words of my mouth and this mediation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer."  Psalm 19:14

My weight hasn't changes in the last week, but I have increased my activity.  I have walked 6 of the last 7 days.  I am going to focus on making sure I find 32 minutes everyday to walk.  I know that the weight will come off.

Love my walking shoes!!!!

Well, the wagon is much harder to get back on then I thought.  I don't see myself going back to where I was when I started.  I see myself being what God has intended me to be, healthy. I do better with structure and I haven't had much structure since May.   Going to work hard to get back in control of my sin and overcome it.

On a side note I did walk yesterday for 31 minutes yesterday...good start!!

Losing Weight

So I started my weight loss in January and it went really well for 4 1/2 months.  As of Mother's Day I had lost 29.8 pounds.  So excited.  Had lots left to loose but that was a great start.

Then life happened...

Steve was put in the hospital to help with pain and that turned into a 9 day stay and surgery.  Which meant eating whatever I could find or what people would bring me.  Lots of bagel, pretzels, chicken fingers, fries, hamburgers and fruity desserts (off of Steve's tray),  All of that plus the last 7 weeks of taking care of his needs, running teenagers where ever they want to go and trying to keep the house going has helped me gain about 5lbs back.  That isn't much, but boy when you get off the wagon it's really had to get back on!!!!

That leads me to today...

BACK ON THE WAGON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
