What A Journey!
Wednesday, September 03, 2014
Hi Sparkpeople! Just checking in to let you know I have reached my goal at 185 lbs. I just took a fitness evaluation with good numbers (except blood glucose)...I am in prayer about that. I have been re-evaluating my diet to make improvements that will bring my blood sugar down. It's just like careful budgeting. When our income is low we think, "How can I possibly pinch pennies even more?" Somehow, we can always find a way! Same thing with our daily calorie budget. That extra slice of bread or piece of fruit, or spoonful of peanut butter! .... I love peanut butter! Well, here's to the last leg of the weight loss journey...10 more pounds to lose! Along the way, I have been amazed at how wonderful my body is! And that is something to cherish at 47! It has been so hard sometimes to picture myself where I am now...by God's Grace, I am here, I am stronger, and more confident. My faith has grown and my waist line has gotten smaller! I praise Him! Couldn't have made it one step with out His Love. So, I appreciate your prayers because once I hit the mark, this journey won't end. I plan to keep going and getting better! Aging should be done Gracefully, not perfectly. One thing I have learned through this, is patience and to allow myself to receive grace. It took me a long time to lose 10 lbs...yet, I can feel my body slowly turning back into a fat burning machine. So, give it time people, and make it a lifestyle! Make sure your motivations aren't superficial, but eternal! Prayerfully, I'd like to get certified as a Personal Trainer in the next few years! We'll see what GOD has in store! :D
