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."

Sorry It's Been A While...

BEGINNING WEIGHT (220 lbs)...CURRENT WEIGHT (194.5 lbs)...AMOUNT OF LOSS (25.5 lbs)

I got rid of my ticker since I couldn't ever get it to work correctly. So I will begin posting my weight loss at the top of my posts. That will serve as an update to you all on my progress and an incentive to keep going with this.

I know...I haven't been leaving updates. I've just not felt much like doing that lately. I've done so good to post and try to be an encouragement to you all and I have failed to do that lately. It didn't help either that two weeks ago I had a major gain. I gained 1.8 lbs on my May 18th weigh-in. But I'm happy to report that I lost 0.2 lbs this past Sunday. I know...I still haven't made up for that gain but I'm just thankful I lost anything.

I've been going through a very difficult time and that has caused me to give up on my weight-loss and to not really care. I know...I know...shame on me!! I'm hopefully back on track now. This weekend is my time for a visit from an unwelcome "friend" (wink, wink) so I may gain this weekend but we'll just have to see. I'm still drinking my water like crazy though. That has not changed.

I really need to get back to the exercise routine but I just haven't been able to get motivated. But now that I have a Georgia Bulldogs room set up with a tv and dvd player so I can have room to move....I plan to get back to that.

How about you all? How have you been doing? You are still in my prayers and I pray that you have been doing better than I have.

It Has To Be The Water!!

Listen ladies....I'm not sure how else to say it happened. It has to be the water. I did not eat like I should this past week. I ate LOTS of chocolate....I had more than my points allowed each day. I know I had to. I don't count my points anymore like I should. I just try to control my eating with prayer and stopping when I'm satisfied. This week I failed miserably in this area. Yet I still drank my water like I am supposed to. When I stepped on the scale Sunday morning I expected to see that I had gained at least 2 lbs. Instead I found I had lost 1.2 lbs. How you might ask. I'm not really sure. I broke all the rules this past week except for my water.

I know I harp on the drinking of the water but I am a firm believer that is what is helping me most. I didn't even get any exercising done...except for my normal climbing of the stairs many times a day. But I don't do it enough times in a row to count for getting my heart rate up and classify as true exercise. Yet I lost!! All I can say is "Thank you Lord!!"

I pray you all had positive results this week. If not in your weight-loss then hopefully in your drinking of you daily amount of water and getting at least SOME exercise. I am praying for each of you and I hope you are praying for me. If you are....keep it up....it is definitely helping me!!

Have a great week!!

Hanging In There

I'm still here. I know I haven't posted any updates this week. I was down at the first part of the week with my female issues. And just when I thought I was coming out of it and doing better....WHAM!!...there it was again!! I think I'm on the downside of it now.

Anyway....I did lose last week...but only 0.2 lbs. But that is still a loss...right? So for that I'm thankful. I still haven't gotten to the walking yet. I want to and plan to though. It just takes motivation which I haven't had much of lately with feeling poorly. I'm still drinking my water though...so that helps a lot!!

I hope and pray all of you are doing well. Keep up with it ladies!! With God we can do this!! We will feel better and look better. We definitely need to take better care of this temple that belongs to God.
