I'm Almost There

I know I didn't post last week due to going to Faith Baptist Camp. There just wasn't time to do so. I had nothing good to report anyway. The only thing I did that week was gain. I had gained 2.6 pounds. This week I managed to lose that and then some. With help of the Lord I lost 3.0 pounds this week. I thank the Lord for helping me to control my eating. I was determined to listen to the Lord and my body when I was satisfied and not to continue eating. I also have hit the water hard since coming back from the campmeeting. I even did better with my water while I was there. It is hard to drink water like I should when I'm away from home but thankfully I made a point to do better this time. I know that it paid off doing so.

I have 26.2 pounds to go and I'm thinking it is going to be more of a challenge to lose this last bit of weight than it has been the amount I've already lost. But I know all things are possible with God. God promises us that it is!! And "all" means ALL!! So He can help us lose what we are trying to lose. We just have to stop letting our flesh and self get in the way.

A Good Loss This Time

I know I haven't had much of an appetite this past several days and that is what contributed to this week's weight-loss. I tried to drink as much water as I could but it was so hard with all that we had to do while in Mississippi. Thankfully we are back home and I hope and pray I can keep this weight I've lost off and not begin adding it back on. This has been one of those situations that I just had no appetite. Plus there just wasn't anything to eat in the motel room...so that helped me keep from running to the refrigerator every hour.

I hope all of you are doing well with your weight-loss. This thing of losing weight in my older age is not easy...but thankfully it is still possible.

Drink that water ladies!!

I Messed Up!!

I had a tough week with my resisting temptation. I was not feeling well and I was also dealing with other things emotionally that I gave into concerning my eating. I have said that at times I will not eat due to dealing with things and at other times I will eat things I shouldn't. Well...last week was a week of eating things I shouldn't have. Don't get me wrong....stress is no excuse for not eating or for over eating. There is no excuse for not listening to the Lord in any situation. Did He try to tell me I didn't need to eat those things....yes He did!! Did I listen....no I didn't!! I am ashamed and I am upset with myself. I have asked the Lord to forgive me and my desire is to listen to Him today. I say today because I'm going to take it day by day...moment by moment. I cannot worry or think about tomorrow for it isn't here yet. I will get through today first.

I am drinking my water and really have no problem in that area lately. I love my water!! I have struggled more with what I have eaten. I ate a lot of junk last week and it caught up with me. It is no one's fault but my own.

Now that I have confessed my faults to you...I'm going to go exercise. I hope y'all have done better than I have.

Another Week...Another Loss

Last week was a very emotional week for me yet with the help of the Lord I managed to keep my drowning my emotions in food to a minimum. Sometimes I will find myself stuffing my face to deal with situations and other times I will just not eat at all. Last week I wanted to stuff my face...and I told the Lord that many times. He enabled me to resist that temptation!!

I did drink my water very well last week. I can tell you one thing though....I'm so ready to reach my next goal of 30 pounds lost yet I'm struggling to get there. I know I could get there if I would just do my exercise. I do hope to get that going once this month's female issue is past. Many things tend to happen to cause me to not want to get that started...but I am determined!!

I pray you all are having positive results on your journey to a thinner and healthier you. If you are struggling with it you must ask yourself these things....

Am I asking the Lord to help me?
Am I stopping when my body tells me I'm satisfied while eating?
Am I getting the proper amount of exercise? (I know..this is my struggle too!!)
Am I drinking my (at least) 68 ounces of water?

If you're not doing any of these things then you can rest assured you probably won't see the results you desire to see. We can do this ladies...but only with the help of the Lord and also some self-control.
