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."

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!!

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

Great loss!! I'm sure the water had to play a part in it. Don't stop "harping" on the water issue... I always need a reminder!
I'm still praying for you, and thank you for doing the same for me!! Have a great week!


Dear Sis.Julie, I have returned to my blog not with a loss but with a gain. I gave much thought to quitting but I knew that I couldn't so I came back and am now facing my failure. I am so glad to see that you are still losing. I hope to be able to say the same in a few days.

I have not ceased to pray for all of you. I am in need of prayer at this time in this area. It is so hard. It seems I have gone over the same areas so many times. Yet, I keep trying. See you soon. love you, connie from Texas

Wow, great for you, your body's in loosing mode, great!!

Water, I know I should but sometimes what I should do I don't and what I shouldn't I do! Hmm, seems like I've heard that before. :0)

Great work, keep on motivating us!
