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."

This Week Is Almost Over!!

Oh boy have I ever failed this week!! I really thought I would do better yesterday than I had been. I'm not doing good at all this week. The only thing I did do good with yesterday was my water. I drank my two jugs of water like I'm supposed to. But I don't believe I did well with my eating and listening to the Lord or my body. Well...let me take that back. Last night we had to go to the funeral home for the family of a preacher friend of ours that went to be with the Lord on Christmas Eve. My husband wanted to go to Dairy Queen afterwards. I told him I was still full from supper. I kinda felt guilty telling him that but had decided that I would go ahead and go and just get something small to eat since he wanted me to get something. The only thing that saved me was the Dairy Queen was a sit-down restaurant only....it had no drive-thru. He didn't want to go inside anywhere. So he said to forget it. I immediately said "Thank you Honey" and "Thank You Lord".

I hope to do much better today. I plan on walking away some pounds today with my new dvd that I got for Christmas. We do have the funeral to go to today. It is in the middle of the day so I'm not sure if I'll get that done or not.

I pray you all are doing much better than I am this week. This new journey is not only about losing weight and getting more healthy but also about taking opportunity to talk more to my Father. I really need to be doing much better with all of those.

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

I am not doing well this week, either. It seems someting comes up ever day to either force out the exercise or cause me to get fast food. And the rest of the month is booked with appointments, so I'm just gonna have to figure a way to get through it without the excuses.

motherofmany....I sure do know what you mean. I thought I'd do well today...but then my hubby decided to take us out to eat and I blew it again!! There is always tomorrow...right?

Hi Julie,
I can sympathize but I can also tell you it will be SO much easier after the holidays. I had a rough holiday period as well, but from August 1 until Thanksgiving, I didn't veer off the Weight Watchers plan at ALL so it can be done.

Between Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years it was very tough not to indulge in the ongoing feeding frenzy that surrounds the whole season...mainly because when I'm doing all that cooking, it's hard for me to want to turn around again and cook an alternate lo-fat meal for myself. So I didn't. I also cut myself some slack because with all that was going on I didn't even want to have to think about tracking anything. Big mistake. I'm back on track now and with the Lord's help, I'm sure we'll all be able to stay where we belong. The self-control we need will come from Him. So will our contentedness.

I'm excited to see how your group does. At the end of 2008, it will be fun to look around and see how different everyone looks, won't it?

By the way, congratulations on gaining a daughter-in-law in March!

P.S. Are you using Weight Watchers online to track your points? I LOVE it! Works so well for me. Just curious.

Sis. Julie said...

sis. karen...No I've not used the online points tracking system. I didn't know I could do that. I'll have to go check that out.

Thank you!!

Karen said...

I better clarify. It is something that you pay separately for. Since I don't go to meetings, I pay for the online service. I think it's about $14 per month. It's been worth every penny for me but since you're doing the meetings it might not be as worthwhile for you. I know some do both but I track my points, weight, look up points values, get recipes, etc., all on line.

Sis. Julie said...

sis. karen...thank you for letting me know about that. I won't be able to do that then. We are in the process of saving every penny we can for a house when we move and then there are things for the wedding that we need to pay for as the parents of the groom. So I'm glad you let me know about that. I didn't know if you have been to my other blog and read our news of a change in the ministry for us. So many have and have commented but I didn't know if you had. Just thought I'd tell you about it in case you hadn't seen it.
