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."

Long Time No Post

I know...I know. I haven't posted in 2 months. Why you might ask....I really don't know. Part of it is that I really don't think anyone is keeping up with this blog anymore...and part of it is that I had gotten a bit frustrated with myself and my weight-loss. I'm not losing it quite as quickly as I was. But then again...I'm not really trying all that hard. I am still drinking my water like I should...but when it comes to eating...I haven't been watching it too closely. I would eat and go beyond that point of satisfaction and I would say "Julie...you blew it again!!".

I have been stepping on the scale occasionally though and been surprised with what I've seen. I've not been gaining by large amounts. I have lost at times...but when I have gained it has been a couple of pounds here and a couple of pounds there. When I would gain those couple of pounds I would lose them right back again within the week. Working and staying active has certainly helped. I have been walking to my WATP dvd but not on a regular basis. I really should do better with that.

I hope you all have been doing better than I have and that you stick with it better than I have. I also hope you are still drinking that water. I would not be me if I didn't stress that part to you like I ALWAYS do!! LOL!!

Hang in there and I'm going to hang in there too. I've come too far to go back now!! I only have 18 more pounds to go till I get to my final goal. I realize that last 18 pounds will be the toughest to get off...but I don't care...I'm determined with the help of the Lord to get there.

I'm Still Here

I know. Long time no post!! It's been 3 1/2 months. I have not lost sight of my goal in weight-loss though. I do feel as though I have let you all down though. I was trying to keep up with you all and how you were going and trying to be an encouragement...and I have failed at that. Please forgive me!! I pray you have all kept up your weight-loss endeavors though.

I haven't been counting points or watching what I eat too much. But I have kept up with my water drinking. I am still making progress although it is slow progress. But slow progress is better than no progress. I have lost another 2.2 lbs since my last post. 2.2 lbs in 3 1/2 months is not a lot...but I had also gained a few pounds back....not many..but a few. I'm thankful that the Lord is continuing to help me to lose weight though.

I am praying I will meet my goal of losing my 21 more pounds sometime this year. I'm not going to put a short time limit on myself because then I will stress about it. I don't want to do that. But I do hope to attain that goal by the end of 2009. I am a believer in not setting unrealistic goals for myself. When I do that I get frustrated and then give up. I don't want to do that. I also hope to get back to exercising again (which I wanted to do at the end of last year and never did).

Have a great day and a great 2009 and don't give up!! Let's do this together with the help of the Lord!! And don't forget to DRINK THAT WATER!!!
