A year ago I posted the end part of this. That is still accurate. However, lately I have strongly felt the need to be INTENTIONAL about my program. Yesterday, for the first time, I was able to eat very little all day. I ate a healthy supper and managed to stay a bit below my calorie range. The idea is I am considering fasting on the 5-2 plan before long. At one time, there was no way I could have gone all day on under 300 calories. I would have had a major headache. Mindset seems to have a lot to do with that. So, here I go, trying something different to me in order to find what is the best for my journey!

August, 2010, I joined SparkPeople. That's almost 6 years ago!! I have not worked as hard as I could have at losing my weight, but have worked harder than I would have on my own. The biggest help I have found is joining Biggest Loser Challenges. While the teams have been so supportive and encouraging, the friendship I have found has been amazing to me. I would not have believed I could feel so close and concerned for people I have never met IRL! Now it's time for me to get serious about bringing my weight under control, my lifestyle onto the track I want for it, and my life in the direction it needs to be so I can serve my Lord to my best.
