the biting truth

finally hearing and trying to regain momentum

Last week was hard. I felt in the dark. Like the world was whirling around me and I could faintly hear the Lord calling my name.

Even when I couldn't feel the Lord, I could hear him. Was I stopping to listen? No. You see, I was much too busy for that. And so I plodded along, weary and tired and overwhelmed.

I am stopping now. Stopping to listen. I am nothing apart from my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I know, it sounds so cliche and cheesy, but it is truth. We are created to be in relationship with God. When we are not in that relationship or our relationship is weakened, we just don't "feel" right.

Eating.... eating could be better. My "free day" last week turned into a free week. Sigh. Huge sigh. Oh well. I still worked out at the YMCA, but I'm pretty sure I didn't loose any of this blasted weight. I didn't even have the heart to weigh in on Monday. I didn't want to see what I already knew.

Trying to get back on the momentum train of healthy living this week. I'm by-passing junk food and reaching for the good-for-me-food. Lord, give me strength!

Keep going in the right direction. God is with you and will give you the strength you need. Continue to call on Him.

You only have to get back on the weight loss train. Everyone has relapses and sometimes... SOMETIMES it is a good thing because it shakes your body up. I think you've been pretty dedicated to this task and I know you can do it!

I think if you want to eat and keep healthy and trim, you should try and keep yourself in healthy envirnment. Try and avoid the ice-cream section at the supermarket, DONT walk down that candy aisle. They seperated it for a reason, ya know ;)
Btw, even if you do get skinny, i would not suggest you wearing a bikini, solely because you have children, and it may scar them for life. If you have a sarong on top, then it's fine :D

We started our blogs around the same time. My blog was meant to keep me motivated in my New Year's Resolutions, and it really has! I had 4 goals for this year. To clean my house, have a better spiritual life, spend more quality time with my kids and husband, and loose weight. My blog has REALLY helped! And your blog has been SO motivational for my weight loss. I love how you type the truth. I try to do that, too. I have lost 20 pounds since Valentine's day, and you definitely deserve some credit. Today I realized something amazing! According to medical charts, I am no longer "obese", I am only "overweight"! (I'm 185 down from 205). So thank you soooo much for the motivation! I've fallen off the train, too. It is hard, but you can do it!!!
