Being Accountable
Saturday, November 24, 2012      4 comments

I decided in my last blog to be more accountable by posting my nutrition and fitness trackers. I don't know if anyone will check them, but the important thing is that they are posted, which means someone CAN see them. Because of this simple fact... Read more
"Made to Crave" Responses to Reflection Questions - Chapter 4
Friday, November 16, 2012      1 comments

It's been a while! And it shows on the scale for me. I lost a pound, then gained it back...and it's NOT because the scale fluctuates from time to time. It's all because of these: BUCKEYES! AAAAAHHHHH! Those things are killers for me! Oh, th... Read more
An area of my life that needs moderation...
Wednesday, November 14, 2012      4 comments

I've never thought of myself as an extreme person, but lately my eating has been slightly out of control. I say slightly because it could be worse, but this area still needs some moderation applied. I have to say, though, that moderation is... Read more
Why do I want to lose weight?
Saturday, October 20, 2012      7 comments

Why DO I want to lose weight? Is it just that I want to lose the weight so I can have a flatter stomach and look better, or do I have another reason? Because if it's just for looks, that seems kind of, I don't know...vain? ... Read more
"Made to Crave" Responses to Reflection Questions - Chapter 3
Monday, October 15, 2012      2 comments

This chapter wasn't about the spiritual craving; it was just about making plans. Since I don't have much time today (I've got to get to Curves!) this will be short. 1. What do I associate with the word "plan?" Haha! Something I don't do ve... Read more

Thursday, October 04, 2012      3 comments

It is possible for me to reach the goal I have set. Nothing is impossible for me because God is with me. God has given me the ability to change my bad habits. I replace my bad habits with good ones. I will make healthy choices for food t... Read more
9/28/12 - 5 minute pep talk
Friday, September 28, 2012      7 comments

I've been working with the SparkCoach feature, and one of the things that was an action step was to give yourself a 5 minute pep talk. I haven't done it before, but I will today! I am capable. I can do all things through Christ who strength... Read more
"Made to Crave" Responses to Reflection Questions - Chapter 2
Thursday, September 27, 2012      0 comments

Well, it's been two weeks...two full weeks...since I've blogged about "Made to Crave." I've done well, and not so well. As I reviewed the reflection questions from Chapter 1, I see that where I lack the most is in going to God with my cravings. ... Read more
"Made to Crave" Responses to Reflection Questions - Chapter 1
Thursday, September 06, 2012      7 comments

Yesterday I was doing very well on my plan; I was keeping within calories, I hadn't eaten between meals, I had calories to spare at the end of the day! Then, as I was looking at my e-mail, I saw something that I was late on, and I immediately th... Read more
Time to get back on track
Saturday, March 24, 2012      5 comments

March 24, 2012, at 11:11 P.M. This is my new moment. I've been eating like a pig, and justifying it by saying things like: I'm really stressed about getting this account balanced, so I'll have a snack. I'm really stressed about getti... Read more
I'm back! SparkPeople.com is the best!
Monday, January 16, 2012      11 comments

For several months, I have been on Weight Watchers Online. It was very helpful for a while, I have to say. The Point system is easy to follow, and the fact that fruits and vegetables are zero points was great. However, since August I've only man... Read more
Reflections on 11/11/11
Wednesday, November 30, 2011      1 comments

I can't say what I was doing on 10/10/10, or on 09/09/09. I know I watched the opening of the Olympics on 08/08/08, but I know what I was doing and what God did in me on 11/11/11. During that week, I had the privilege of attending a staff t... Read more
One day at a time...
Tuesday, August 09, 2011      5 comments

Recently I had to sing at a funeral. I was asked to sing the Christy Lane version (not the Tupac version-haha!) of "One Day at a Time," for which I only knew the refrain. It didn't take long to learn the verses, though, so it was no problem. ... Read more
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!
Saturday, July 16, 2011      7 comments

It's been a long time since I've written a blog--over half a year! And, frankly, that's about as long as it's been since I've been earnest in my weight loss as well. I don't have that much to lose, just 10-15 pounds, so I guess I've become compl... Read more
How do I accomplish "No Whining!"? By praying continually.
Friday, January 21, 2011      11 comments

I really don't want to whine. I like to be positive, and usually I am. But I've been down lately. I got on the scale and I'm back to 140 pounds. Ugh! Even if I give myself a two pound leeway, that's still 138 (or 142!). I keep trying to exe... Read more
