I've been struggling very badly friends. I've not been making the best choices as to what goes in my mouth. Moderation is key, but I have had no self-control. I have been battling thoughts of starving myself like I did as a pre-teen. I have combated those thoughts as soon as they've hit me because I know it's an attack of the enemy. I will not go back to the way things used to be. With the Lord as my strength, I know I will reach my goals. I know that this pain will go away so I can do workouts again. I haven't even been walking as much as I normally do. A year ago today was when I posted about being known around my town as "The Walking Lady". I used to get between 2 and 10 miles a day. Now I'm getting 3 or less. I want to be back to around 5 miles a day. I want to get this additional weight off so I am no longer in pain and short of breath. I know I can do this. Please keep encouraging me and lifting me up. Thank you so much for all your support thus far.

    Oh Sis Liz Yes you can do all things with God who gives you the strength to make the right choices. Make sure you forgive yourself when you don't and move forward. This is a daily battle! Remember, Great is He that is in you than he that is in this world. The best part is you are a child of the King and have the Holy Ghost which will lead and guide you. I wish I was there to give you a big big hug. You are a huge inspiration to me and I love it when you join my challenges. I am here for you...
    LET'S DO THIS!!!

    I have been struggling constantly as well. I want to go back to restricting too but I hated the side effects (hair loss, sick feeling etc). Trying to find the right balance of eating to fullness but keeping the downward trend going on the scale...NOT EASY.

    We can do it, I'm with you on this. 1 day at a time. Starting is the hardest. I have had sooo many restarts this summer it's crazy. But I am forcing myself to try again every time and make it the permanent one!

    You can do this Liz, you've come a long way to get this point. Clear your mind, trust in the Lord to help you to get back to your healthy life style. You know all things to do, so just start once again and get on your track to a healthier lifestyle.

    Take care.
