God is good and His mercy endureth forever!!

Friday, August 29, 2014

It's been a while since I have written a blog. It's time I give my latest testimony. Currently I have Pneumonia I was released from the hospital yesterday evening (been there for a week). After fighting a summer cold for a week, I felt so bad last Friday I didn't know if I was going to make it. But God saw me through the night and on Friday I was planning to go see my doctor. I was barely able to get myself dressed and call for a friend to take me to the hospital. I was told I had Pneumonia and it was the worse case I have ever had. I thank God for all He has done for me and continues to do! By His Stripes I am Healed and yes His mercy endureth forever!!

Spark 3rd Anniversary!

Tuesday, June 10, 2014

Wow - June 6, 2014 marked my 3rd year Spark Anniversary! Since that time I have lost almost half of my goal weight by eating in moderation and exercising. I didn't go on a diet. Diets and me do not get along! I had to do something that I could live with for life, not a temporary fix.

My goal is to reach 150 pounds or less and I have 70 pounds to go. I thank God that I did not gain back the weight I have taken off. It is taking me a while to get where I am going, but I am pressing on!

Plans don't always go as planned!

Saturday, May 31, 2014

With all the encouragement I love to give (I even do my best to encourage myself) right now it is not working for me! Everyday I plan on doing better and every night it is easy to give up on the plan and to overeat. I have stayed the same weight for over a year now and today I can't seem to picture myself at a smaller size.

I'm not sure what is going on with me. I still have faith, I still track my food, I walk week days and usually exercise at least 5 times a week. I just seem to need more. I also know that I need to stop my late night eating.

I've lost 65 pounds thus far and I want to finish this. Yes it's a lifetime change, but now I just want to get where I'm going so I can begin maintenance. I want to reach one-derland and I have 20 pounds to get there. It is time for me to reevaluate and do some thing's different because giving up is not an option! I have come too far to give up!

    You have done awesome things up to this point. Try not to get frustrated. Stop, re-evaluate what you are doing. Can you add an extra 30 minutes of exercise per week? Are you drinking enough water? You mentioned something overeating. Girl, that is the story of my life. I had a wonderful day yesterday, got all the way home, had dinner. All was well until I saw my husband get some potato chips and what do I do? Go get some too? I felt like I hadn't had any in a while. But, my problem is that I have no control. So, after I ate those, I went and got more. I tracked it and once I saw how it put me over my calories, fat, etc. It made me think, I HAVE to make better choices. So, trust me you are not alone. One thing that's been helping me on the days that I do stay on track is going to bed at a decent time. I use to stay up til 12:00 watching all of those reality shows, snacking on cookies, chips...whatever. Now, I try to go to bed by 9:30/10:00. That helps alot. I read something about when our bodies don't get enough sleep, our brains release cortisol or something like that. The chemical makes us gain weight. Try looking it up. So sleep is VERY, VERY important. Anywho, I'm sure you will figure out what changes you need to make. Just know that you have accomplished sooooo much. Keep your head up, don't get discouraged. You are almost there!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Why not include an evening snack in your calorie range hun?
Something reasonably healthy of course.
There are some who think evening eating turns to fat- it doesn't! It metabolised like every meal in the day and a healthy snack including into your daily range will leave you feeling virtuous.
The other thing you could do is drink some water with your evening meal and after- often we're thirsty and interpret it as hunger.

If boredom is an evening issue, get a crossword book or light read that you can take up and put down easily.

Good luck emoticon emoticon emoticon
