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.

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

Sis Julie
I am so proud of you for sticking with it. You look great and you have come to far to stop now. I have made my 10% goal and I am proud because it is harder for me with my thyroid issues to lose but I dont use that for a crutch. I keep on going. I want to live to see grand children and be healthy enough to play with them :) Take care. Lisa

Hi, Sis. Julie! I do still read here.. I'm just really bad about posting comments :(
I'm glad to hear that you're so close to your goal... keep up the good work.
And thanks for the reminder to drink water... I still need that!!

Keep it up! You can do it. Just think of it this way, if you loose only 2 pounds a MONTH you will be at goal by the end of December. That isn't a bad way to look at it, really.

Love ya!
