Remind myself of one of Gods promises in Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ who s

Thursday, September 11, 2014

Well it has been a very tiring day for me. Out and about mowing and clipping trees again. Then off to raking up all the debris and loading up the trailer, then transporting it to the burn pile. All the while I am getting in as many steps that I can. Today I did get 4496 steps in. You would think that I would be losing weight like crazy. But just the opposite is true, I have gained 4 pounds. I am beginning to wonder if it is the live culture yogurt, that the doctor has told me to eat. I am measuring it out and eating it with fruit. But still, I think I am going to revisit m calories and weighing. Some where I am not doing something quite right.
But it is okay, I can keep going. I know that this is a temporary set back. I can do this and all things through Christ Jesus!

    You've gotten good advice from so many. I lift you up in prayer, knowing you'll grow in him and the weight will fall. I have been using non-fat or full yogurt, but I'm at a plateau myself for weeks. I'm going to try a change up in diet, see what that does. My, my you are busy! Let us know the breakthrough when it comes.

    If you are working like that you are getting in shape and will be healthier even if you dont see it on the scale now. I havent lost weight in a long time but I lose inches! there are many non scale victories!
    Two things I had to do is not eat the same foods all the time or my body reaction the same so change it up so it has to change. And changed my type of activity or exercise to something different.

    The weight isn't dropping like fall leaves off me either but I keep moving. I know it will happen...one day. I do notice, however, that my muscles are toning up and that I move more freely. Keep on keeping on. You, too, will see POSITIVE changes...sometimes it's just slow in coming. You go girl!

    Still think you are doing great, and more than others. I would definitely journal, to see where those extra calories are coming from. Low fat yogurt sets you up for eating sweets, because it has a lot of sugar. I think that the non-fat yogurt is the best for you. eva

    Dont be discouraged. I know yogurt is very good for add loss. Just like someone said earlier buy the plain yogurts and add in your fruits and nuts and toppings. Also drink a lot of citrus. I was on such a plateau and was on the verge of giving up and drinking lemon and lime based drinks with no sugar (splenda) helped me so much. Ultimately regular exercise along with dieting is the only thing that works for me. Stick with it! You will see the miracle.

    Your right you can do it with Christ's help. Just ask and you shall receive. As far as yogurt, I was told to take it without the fruit in it and eat plain or vanilla yogurt and add fresh fruit to it. The fruit they have in the yogurts has more sugar. But take a close look at your journally, something may be slipping in that you don't realize. It happens to all of us. Besides shaking things up is a good way to jumpstart your program.

    Sometimes it just seems no matter what we do to "do it right" things just don't work out the way we thought they would. Keep on claiming that verse. And remember, All things work together for good" for those of us who are called according to His word.
