My last hour of 4 weeks on my 6 wk commitment!!!
Monday, February 26, 2007
I have made it through the past 4 weeks and my jeans are looser!!! I am a better label reader and I am better informed of what is in the food I eat and feed my children and husband!! I have had some rough days, but through prayer and crying it out, I made it!!! Do I miss all the JUNK??? YES!! But I know that I am on my way to a healthier lifestyle that will affect not only my children but those around me!!! All the Glory goes to God!!! I think I will be able to make another 6 week commitment!!! God is setting me free from the days of eating a whole bag of dove milk chocolates in secret, hiding extra ice cream in the freezer and then replacing it if I binged so no one will know, baking sugar cookies on Friday evening because it was the "weekend", stuffing my face with oversize portions, snacking while I cooked, eating mindlessly, eating for emotional comfort, eating it because I could "you're not the boss of me"!, stuffing my face until I burst, diet pills (what a joke!), and being a horrible role model for my precious girls!!!! I surrender it all to you LORD!!! More of YOU and less of me!!! LITERALLY!!! I can't believe I haven't cheated!!!! I really need to work on getting my water intake to 8 glasses, I get stuck at 4!!! And I need to work on being more consistent in my daily cardio, ie walking!!!! My husband is so happy that I am eating right!!! He was getting sooooo worried about me!!! I wish I could share this with my best friend Joe!!! He would think I was NUTS, but I know that he would have been really happy for me!!! He was always concerned about my weight even though his was through the roof but I know that it was out of love and he just gave up on himself and didn't want me to!!! Thank You LORD for getting me through these past 4 weeks!!!! I feel Your presence!!!
