I thank my precious Abba Father (Creator God) for all He has allowed, is allowing, & will allow in my life! May all the glory for any modest successes achieved on this lifestyle changing journey be His & His alone! Amen & Amen!

Life is good - it always has been - however, there is a special new sweetness to it since I determined to stop playing around & get serious about following my program.

Like I said - life is good!

P.S. ~

The 'Twin Visitors" photograph was taken in early July. I looked out the window & had the pleasant experience of being eye-to-eye with one of them. Their Mama was right with them in the trees outside the window. They were so adorably cute!

My dearly treasured "Mr.V" quickly got the camera & took a few photographs. I think it is so cute how one seems to be posing for the picture to be snapped, while his twin is eagerly following their Mama!

    I just wrote a long response to your comment and it didn't post. That makes me so angry!

    I lost 6 pounds of the 8 pounds I had regained. Today I am at my lowest at 225 point something. When I return to my primary care doctor on the 29th, I think I will shock him.

    I now weigh and measure all of my food and log it, before taking my first bite at meals. Sometimes hubby will ask the blessing on the food loud enough that I can hear it in the computer room and stop what I am doing and pray with him.

    We had hamburgers last night with baby portabella mushrooms that were fried in butter. We cooked the burgers on the George Foreman grill and I had to look the mushrooms up on myfitnesspal and copy the nutrition onto Spark People's nutrition label.

    A woman here at Spark People told me about the Facebook group, Reversing Diabetes. They use Dr. Eric Westman's way of eating and that is the diet I follow. It brings down blood glucose and causes you to lose weight.

    My breakfast this morning:

    Regular Coffee, brewed from grounds, 14 fl oz ⊗ 4 0 0 1 0
    Truvia 1 packet=3.5g, 1 serving ⊗ 0 3 0 0 0
    Butter, salted, 1 tbsp ⊗ 102 0 12 0 0
    Fried Egg, 1 large ⊗ 90 0 7 6 0
    heavy whipping cream, 1 tbsp ⊗ 50 1 5 0 0
    cooking with spinach 1.5 cups serving, 0.33 serving ⊗ 7 1 0 1 1
    BREAKFAST TOTALS: 252 5 23 8 1

    I think that thinking about the Scriptures will be more of a help to me. David thought about Bathsheba before he carried out the deed. Matthew 5:28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. Sin begins with the thought process. With me it is thinking about food, overeating/binging and the sin of gluttony. It is part of the reason I got up to 279 pounds, I never felt full.

    If the Holy Spirit inspired the account of King Eglon, then our bodily image is known by God too. I know that, but I really had to do some thinking about it. I allow myself to binge. Once I start, with even just one bite, it is hard for me to quit. It is just a form of insanity to me, since I have diabetes and kidney disease, I could kill myself by binging. The words "food coma," can really happen to diabetics.

    Onions have 15 carbs in one cup. The vegetables that I can eat, rarely have 5 carbs in a half cup. Cornstarch turns to glucose and balsamic vinegar is not allowed either. No fruit, no rice, pasta, potatoes, no breads or biscuits, crackers, some vegetables are excluded, no milk or milk products. I can have hard cheeses and heavy whipping cream.

    I can't remember all that I wrote in my first blog. I need to get some lunch though, it is almost 1 PM.
