Praise

Saturday, August 30, 2008

I thank God every day. He is making the impossible, possible in my life. I have lost weight before, but this time its different. I feel like I am making a life change. I had gotten heavier than I had ever been in my life, I had given up hope that I could ever make a permanent change. I know that it had gotten to a point that I realized it is not about appearance any more, I have 2 young children and I need energy to be the mom they need me to be. I didn't want to have health problems or a shorter life because of my weight, I need to be there for my family and set a good example. I can do all thing through Christ Jesus!

    That's great! I feel the same way. I have two kids, 7 and (almost) 4. I want the energy to keep up with them and to not be embarrassed about my size while I'm out and about. I would also like them to be proud of me and be inspired to be fit and healthy because of what they see me doing. We can do it! You are so right...with God it is possible!!!!

    I applaud you for making the right choice. I can relate to your situation. WHen my three kids were young, I was overweight and regret I could not do all that I wanted to with them. Now I have a grandson with whom I want to play. A few months ago I began seeing a nutritionist to help me learn how to eat the foods I like in the right amounts and combinations (I am a vegetarian who eats seafood and dairy). SInce APril I have lost almost 40 pounds and have a LONG way to go. It did not come on overnight so I know it will take a while to lose those pounds.
    WIth God's help we can do all things.
    If I can help or encourage you in any way, please let me know.
