Weekly Update

Not much to report this week.  Since you have been on this journey with me you have known that this goal is taking a long time.  But it isn’t going the wrong direction, so that is good, right?  The whole build muscle and lose weight thing is hard for me to figure out.

No weight loss again this week….measurements all pretty much the same.

However, even though I have only been doing this no weighing myself everyday and trying to make healthier food choices instead of only calorie counting I feel a lot better.  I am keeping my calories in check, feeling full because of eating the right foods, working out a lot.  My clothes fit well and so I am HOPEFUL that soon my goal will be reached.  But I like this approach better instead of running to the scale  5 times a day and restricting calories so much all week that I gain it all back on my off days.  I am just going to try to be consistently healthy.  The last 2 days though, avoiding diet cola again and processed foods 80% of the time has me feeling so much better!  I hope I can keep this new mindset and approach…it is healthier for mind and body.

My goals remain the same…eat right, lower calories, workout 6 days a week, aiming for 5 pound loss minimum, 7 pound loss maximum.

Will keep you posted!

March For Life

Please join me today in praying for the enormous number of babies who are aborted each day.  Please join me in praying for their parents who are facing things many of us cannot imagine.  Please join me in praying for EACH life everywhere in this world…the blessed, the poor, the wicked, the homeless, the tortured, the abused, the hurting, the dying, the living.  Pray that we may be able to show them God’s light and love.  We are able to help every person without enabling them.  We are able to LOVE every person despite their decisions.  There are a lot of people I love who do not make choices I love.  There are a lot of people who love me that do not love the choices I make.  We need to love as God loves us.  Love with His heart, His gentleness, His forgiveness.  I am not saying we compromise our beliefs, but Jesus was and is a friend of sinners, and we are all sinners.  The least we can do is honor Him by reaching out to others with His love.

PLEASE PRAY that the world may see each life, whether born or unborn, as a life that is made from God, a life full of potential, a life worth living.

1.25.13

13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.

Psalm 139: 13-16
