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."

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.

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

Congratulations on your weight loss!
I have talked with your daughter on Big Baptist a couple of times. She thinks it is neat that I read her mom's blog.

Bravo Julie for loosing all that you gained and then some. Your doing fantastic! With all the stress you've been through lately, you have done wonderful. BRAVO!

Sis. Tori...Thank you so much Sis!! I'm rather shocked to be honest. I've been on that plateau of sorts but have had some bumps on that plateau. I hope to be able to break out of that soon and begin losing again like I was.
