Getting Back to Being Alcohol-Free

I was alcohol-free for 107 days, making it through Thanksgiving, Christmas, my sweetie's birthday, New Year's Eve, and Valentine's Day. I was so proud of myself and I lost an additional 10 pounds bringing my weight loss total to over 40 pounds. Then 2 weeks ago I started drinking "too much" and have re-gained 5 pounds. Gotta quit AGAIN! Ordered another piece of jewelry to "remind" me of my commitment and a book about alcohol addiction. Will be writing blogs about what I learn. Stay tuned !

My Goals:
I want to have a healthy BMI which for me would be weighing 150 pounds or less. I've lost over 30. (20 pounds to go.) I want to take care of the body God has given me so that I can live a long and healthy life and be around for any future grandchildren.

My Program:
Only with the strength of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, can I resist the temptation of over-indulging in alcohol, and all those unhealthy extra calories. I will continue to eat lots of fruits and veggies and walk every day. I've always needed plenty of sleep and I will drink lots and lots of water. Mostly I will be grateful to God for all HIS blessings and my wonderful life.



Personal Information:
My name is Valerie and I'm 56 years young. I have a wonderful sweetheart and we live on the edge of the Gulf of Mexico in Florida. I also have two grown sons who are awesome. I'm retired and love my life and it keeps getting better all the time.

Other Information:
My favorite quote is from Psalm 23, "The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want" God has taken care of me all of my life and blesses me everyday.

Another favorite is the last verse of Matthew: Jesus said, "I will be with you always, even unto the end of the age"

I also really like 1 Corinthians 10:31 "Whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do everything for the glory of God."

I have been slacking with SP lately but I'm making an effort to get back to it regularly! I saw your update in the friend feed about grocery shopping (I love it, too!) and I decided to have a look at your page and I wanted to tell you, you look GREAT! Your hard working is paying off :) Congrats to you!
