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."

What Can I Say?

Well....I can say that I didn't do too well last week. I ate things I shouldn't have and I didn't drink my water quite as faithfully as I should have or normally do. And because of that I gained 0.6 lbs. I know...you're gonna tell me that isn't that bad. But for me to have lost so well the three weeks previously and then to be shot down when I stepped on the scale this week was a bummer. But it was my fault. I can't blame anyone else. I didn't have to eat the things I ate that I shouldn't have and I could have let the Lord keep me from eating those things that were not the best things to eat.

I hope y'all did better than I did. I also need to get back to my exercise regime. With the unpacking being done and no need to be going up and down the stairs like I was...it is time to break out the Walking Away The Pounds dvd and get back to it.

Y'all keep up the good work on your end and I'll try to do better with the Lord's help this week.

Isn't that just the way? I think sometimes when we get close to a goal we mentally relax a little bit....even subconsciously. You'll recoup it next week, though. You haven't given up and that's what matters. It's just a pain to have to lose the same 1/2 pound twice, isn't it?

A couple of other blogging ladies and I have gotten into a bit of a competition to see who can outlast each other on our respective diet & fitness plans. Everyone is contributing something to the winner's prize (handknit socks, handmade tote bag, etc.) And of course, there are always bragging rights. It's put a little bit of good-natured drive in our fight with fat and lightened things up a bit. It seems to be working well for us, but I know it's not for everyone. Our 'game' has already started but maybe some of your group will want to have a little contest with each other there in Georgia.

Have a good week, Sis. Julie! Drink that water. :-)

Hey Julie,
0.6 lbs is nothing to be ashamed of, you've done so good that your allowed a little gain once in a while.

Keep it up in 2 weeks I'm gonna need the motivation!

Sis. Tori...You're right. And I try not to let a little gain bother me. This week I lost but I'll post that tomorrow. You know I'll be right there to motivate you Sis!! We can do this!!
