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."

Just A Little More

I couldn't believe it when I stepped on the scale this morning and found I had lost. I really thought after eating what I ate yesterday and not drinking my water that I like to and usually drink that I would have gained. We were out of town going to two different churches in Chickamauga, Georgia. That is 2 1/2 hours from home. We ate at Pizza Hut for lunch and then had ice cream for supper (I was still so full from lunch that all I wanted was an ice cream cone). I only had (maybe) 24 ounces of water instead of my usual 68 ounces. But I stepped on the scale this morning and had lost another 0.5 lbs. I'm only 0.1 lbs. away from my 30 lb. goal. I'm so close now!! And when I hit that 30 lb. goal I'm going to have another update picture taken to share with you.

I hope y'all had a good week with positive results. If you didn't don't give up!! I've sure had my share of roller-coaster rides with my weight-loss lately. Thanks be to God I haven't given up. It really does help to have that original picture taken when I first started my journey. I have it on the side of my refrigerator where I see it each time I approach the fridge. And that picture is so hideous that I can't help but keep going. If you don't have an original picture of what you looked like at the start to remind you of what you need to be doing in your weight-loss and encouraging you to keep going...then take one now and put it on your fridge!! It really is a great incentive.

Don't forget to drink that water!!

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

Good job on the weight loss.
I have one of those starting pics too! I was horrified when I saw it on my camera! It is the reason I joined WW this time.

Oh boy do I know what you mean. The camera is the reason I've done the WW weight-loss program both times I've done it. The first time I lost 47 lbs. only to gain it all back and then some. But this time I'm changing my eating habits with the WW program being the tool to help me do that. So things are different this time. Its coming off much slower this time but I'm glad it is to be honest. I know part of it is I'm older now and my body has changed but the rest is because I'm changing my eating habits. I pray you continue to do well with your weight-loss journey.

Great job, Sis. Julie! I love the idea of the hideous picture on your fridge! I'll have to go dig up an old photo to put on mine so I don't let myself get "there" again.
Once again, thanks for the water reminder :)

Sis. Julie said...

Sis. Pam...That picture has helped me so much!! I had another picture last time I lost weight but I didn't put it on the fridge because I didn't want other people seeing it. I looked so fat!! But this time I really don't care. If anything...others seeing the picture will help them to see how far I've come...but I see where I was!!

You're welcome for the reminder about the water!! I know it probably gets aggrivating seeing that on every post...but I know it helps me to see it!!

Love you!!

Pam--in Jerusalem said...

NO, the water reminder isn't aggravating at all.. at least not to me :) I'm the type that NEEDS it pounded into my head repeatedly!!

Sis. Julie said...

Sis. Pam...I'm glad it isn't aggrivating to you...I hope it isn't to anyone else either.

Tori said...

Wow, your so close to that 30 lb. mark. I know you must be so excited, I am for you!

I have tons of those icky before photos that I look at for time to time for motivation.

I'm having fun watching your progress, thanks for the inspiration!


Sis. Julie said...

Sis. Tori...Thanks!! I just wish it would happen a little faster. But then I guess if I wanted it to happen faster then I would get off my hiney and exercise. I have yet to do that. It just takes effort to do that...and I don't like to exercise. Pray for me please! LOL!
