Where is my focus?
Thursday, February 28, 2013      3 comments

Lately I have not been living that last fruit of the Spirit: self-control. I've been eating what I want, when I want. If I want an ice cream sundae, I make one for myself and eat it. Ha! It would be funny to make one, but not eat it! I didn... Read more
Over calories...on the upside I got a bonus spin from entering all that food!
Wednesday, January 30, 2013      6 comments

I decided yesterday to stop using SparkCoach. It is a good resource, for sure, and cheaper than Weight Watchers, and has a lot of really good information. However, I think it's too much for me right now. Rather than being concerned about followi... Read more
Day 2 - Yes! I can do this!
Tuesday, January 22, 2013      3 comments

I am really surprised at how just changing one thing changes EVERYTHING! I've not noticed such a huge difference simply by doing one new thing. What is it about making the decision to eat only while sitting at the table or counter, and to n... Read more
New Strategy! OK, it's not new, but I haven't tried it yet!

This morning I got on the scale and it read 140 pounds. Ugh. I gained 4 pounds back. I wasn't surprised; my eating, especially evening snacking, has gotten out of control lately. I laugh when I think about "mindful eating." Oh, I'm fully mindful... Read more

"Made to Crave" Responses to Reflection Questions - Chapter 5
Saturday, January 12, 2013      0 comments

1. "I was made for more." How will this truth help me with my struggles? Most of the time when I think about losing weight, it's because I want to have a flatter stomach and fit into my clothes and not look like I'm six months pregnant. But... Read more
God is good all the time! Musings on the day before my 50th birthday
Saturday, January 12, 2013      5 comments

Today is 1/12/13, which is one of those fun dates to write. I love stuff like that: 12/12/12, which is very special since it's the last time all the numbers will be the same. But days like 1/11/12 were special too because the first two numbers a... Read more

It's time for a five minute pep...write. I'm not talking aloud as I write! Okay. I can do this. God is with me. He wants only the best for me. I am capable. I can put my best foot forward in all circumstances. I can get up and mov... Read more
The Power of Visualization
Friday, January 04, 2013      3 comments

Today's coaching session on SparkCoach was about the power of visualization, using questions to guide you into picturing yourself 10 years from now. It was an interesting exercise, and does illustrate the power of visualization. We are what we t... Read more
Victory!

Yesterday I was really tempted to eat, but as I quoted from 1 Corinthians 10:13, God provided a way of escape so I could be able to endure the temptation. I think this came in the form of the one person who commented on the blog, saying that Ind... Read more
With every fiber of my being I want to eat...but I will persevere!
Sunday, December 30, 2012      2 comments

I really, really want to eat right now. I want chocolate and bread and peanut butter and whatever else I can get my hands on. But I only have 45 calories left for the day, so I really can't eat anything else. (Oh, maybe it's less than that; I fo... Read more

My SparkFriends are some of the most wonderful people on the earth! I'm just requesting your prayers right now for my family. My father has been in a nursing home for over a year now. In the past five or six months, he's really been in decl... Read more
Shaking up my workout
Friday, December 07, 2012      0 comments

What can I do to shake up my workout? I've been going to Curves for several years now, and a few months ago started the Curves Smart workout. I like it, but is it working for me? Most of the time I feel like I'm working the machines as hard as I... Read more
Being Accountable - Part 4
Friday, November 30, 2012      2 comments

If I keep this up, I may be at "Being Accountable - Part 9857" at some point. Okay. That's exaggerating. That would take 27 years. Haha! I'd be almost 77. Anyway, yesterday was so embarrassing! I posted all the food I ate. Now, it's one thi... Read more
