I Cortinthians 6:19-20 "What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's."

I'm Back Home!!

For those of you who didn't know I was gone....I had been gone at my sister-in-law's for a week and a half taking care of her and her two-year-old daughter. My sister-in-law had been sick for three weeks and couldn't get well due to having to chase her daughter around by herself. Her husband is deployed to Iraq where he has been since November of 2006 and isn't due to come home till February of this coming year. She couldn't rest to get well so my daughter Kristina and I went to help her out.

Anyway....I wasn't at our church Sunday to weigh-in at our meeting so I weighed when we got in (I hope you're not upset with me Sis. Karen...I know I told you I wouldn't weigh myself during the week). When we were up at Catina's I showed I had gained 5 lbs which would be my menstrual weight since I was due to start my cycle this past Sunday. I always gain 5 lbs a couple of days before I start. When I got home and weighed on the scale we use in the meetings I had lost less than 1 lb. So that means that I lost weight in NC. I didn't starve myself either. Catina eats high fiber foods and eats healthy foods. She didn't used to but she does now. I did all the cooking and thought I would still gain since I ate so many sugar cookies with icing on them. Thank the Lord with His help and Him keeping me from overdoing it....I guess I did better than I thought. So we'll see come Sunday how I did. I only hope I'll get to go to the meeting if I'm on my cycle. Usually I don't get to go to church while I'm on it since it is so bad. We'll see what the Lord does this month.

I pray you all have done well. I have been praying for you all. I will be back to posting (hopefully) daily again since I'm home on my own computer. Catina's didn't cooperate with me. Stay focused on Christ in your daily walk with Him....even on your weight-loss journey.

Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."

Congratulations on not gaining while you were away. Those 'monthly' gains are always tough for me to plow through especially because it usually comes with sugar cravings! I have learned to manage. And you are right...it is with the Lord's help we're able to stay on target.
Psalm 63:4-5
4Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name.

5My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips:
