Declare & Decree!

Friday, December 12, 2014

Since my illness in August and having to take steroids for pneumonia, I have really been struggling to get back on track... I have been so discouraged and even knowing that God is yet in control and that with Him all things are possible - I haven't been able to get back on track!

Monday, I had a doctor appointment and I have gained 23 pounds!! emoticon

I worked so hard to lose 68 pounds and I'm upset about the weight gain. I haven't given up, I still use the food tracker, I still exercise. But, I have not been eating in moderation and I'm not exercising as much as I should. Steroids really get me out of wack and always for too long! My appetite has increased and I'm seriously hungry all the time!

emoticon

I know what is required for me to lose weight. I am getting back into the right frame of mind and moderation, exercise here I come!! So I'm going to start again... and now, I declare and I decree that pneumonia is no longer going to be a part of me, in Jesus name no more steroids!!

    I have been on steroids for over 14 years and they do make you very hungry and out of control until you recognize that is what is happening. It took me a long time to figure that out. I gained 50 pounds because of that,. I am slowly coming down from the dose but I am not sure when I will get off or if I will ever get off since I think that my doctor does not seem to want me to come off it completely. I do and that is why I am very conscious of what it does to me. I have found that if I drink a large glass of ice cold water, it helps with curbing that hunger too. Give it a try.

    In His name may that Steroid Dependence be removed and relinquished from your body!
I have experience, in my family, of a younger brother suffering severe asthma and Steroid Dependence. I may not have experienced it, and know that as an asthmatic I can't and shouldn't claim to "know" what you are going thru. I do know, however, how helpless you feel each time that hunger takes over, every healthy food choice becomes a culprit as the unhealthy and how you feel when that number on the scale climbs. I have experienced this!
I may not have answers, but I do have my friendship to offer and my prayers to be said each day. Have a peace filled night!

    I agree, conquer your illness first. Get better, feel good! Once you're healthy, you'll have enough strength to work towards your next goal.

    Amen! Nevertheless, I agree with the previous comment that you should put your health first. Also, although i don't know much about how steroids affect the appetite, just wondering if munching on lots of veg and fruit between meals would help?

    God's mercies are new every morning, so grab you some and take it one day at a time. You didn't do anything wrong, those steroids are tough customers. I have asthma, so I can relate. Treat yourself like you would your best friend, with kindness and understanding. This is just a temporary set-back and it won't take you long to get those extra pounds off once you get back in the groove of working your plan.

Be encouraged and stay strong! You are worth it! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    steroids are the worst. They do cause weight gain. I told my dr I would never take then again not even if I was near death. In this day and age seems like they can help without them. I have an old blog about steroids. Best of wishes with your weight loss. emoticon

Changing & Reaffirming My Goals

Wednesday, October 01, 2014

September 14th was my 61st birthday. Today I read these words, can't quite remember where - "Don't regret getting older, it is a privilege denied to many", author unknown. I however, have never had any regrets about getting older and I have never been ashamed of my age. I thank God for every day of my life!

So I have really had a hard time working on my lifestyle change or should I call it downsizing (I also read a blog speaking of downsizing and I liked it!) Anyway, I have decided to make a few changes to my goals. One being since I am a homebody, I will start exercising at every commercial break. Two, I will continue walking for 30 - 40 minutes, 5 times per week. Three, I will continue to track my food and stay within my calorie range daily. Four, I will change my last snack to fruit or protein.

My plan is that by January 1, 2015, I will be downsized by 32 pounds and I will have 38 pounds left to reach my goal weight!
