Weight Loss

Most of you that know me know I want to lose weight very badly. Our church has started a Biggest loser group at church. I think that is an awesome idea but I am not able to make those meetings so our wonderful homegroup is starting something too to help keep us accountable!! We have great accountability and one of the ladies in our group has come up with a cool point system to keep us even more accountable!!! The coolest thing is that this will be kept Christ centered. I can only do this through Christ so it would make sense that we would give all the Glory where it due!!

I started on Wednesday (I waited until the day after my birthday) and as of this morning I am down 3.5 pounds! Yeah!! The cool thing this time around is I do not feel hungry! That in itself is a huge blessing!!

I am insulin resistant so I need to cut out sugar and other carbs. The first few days are the worst and then you do not crave it anymore!! The hardest part is when I usually have to bring my own food when I go to people's house. So if I am at your house and you make something please do NOT feel offended if I do not eat it. I do not mean to make you feel bad it just I might not be able to eat it!! Its NOT a diet it the way I have to eat.

I am writing this here so that all of YOU can help to keep me accountable too!! There will be a few exceptions as when I am in Haiti I am not sure how to eat but I figure I will walk more there and sweat it off!! LOL However I will do my best and God will help me there too!!!

Yeah for you! I joined the Biggest Loser last night so I'm right there with you. It's cool that your home group is doing something too.

Yup- I'm sure you will sweat it off in Haiti!
Don't worry about offending people- I think everyone understands!

Great Job brenda! Remember it's moderation we all need to adhere to. We need to eat healthier and less of what we do now. We have to hold each other accountable. It's great your group is doing that!

Just tell us what your menu restrictions are and we'll do our best to accommodate during your Haiti trip.

YEAH Brenda! Actually you've inspired me.....since the holidays and now this surgery I've not been watching it nearly like I should and my blood sugars which have been GREAT are right now WAY too high. So, I'm walkin' the road with you...or maybe we should be hikin' it! :)
