Holy Cow!!!

First things first...I lost 4.8 pounds this week!!! Yeah! That puts me at having lost 46.6 pounds! That leaves 13.4 pounds to loose before Decemeber 31st!!! I am so pumped!!!

So I mentioned earlier today that I wanted to share some of the inspirations I am reading in this book called "Balance That Works When Life Doesn't", by Susie Larson. So I am going to just quote straight from the book:

The road back to health isn't an unattainable one; it just requires that we face the current that swirls about us, jump in right where we are, and determine to stand on what we know to be true. We can do this.

God is our Source - food is a gift. when we look to food as our source, we fall out of balance.

(This was under a heading called TRY THIS) Tell yourself daily, "I am fearfully and wonderfully made. I am getting stronger and healthier every day!"

We cannot compare ourselves to who we were years ago, nor can we compare ourselves to others. Those kinds of evaluations produce no good results.

And finally a prayer that I have made my own:
Dear Father in Heaven,
I don't want to make my body an idol where it becomes my obsession and focus. I want to make such good choices that I will no longer be distracted by my health. I want my health to serve me so I can better serve You. Amen.

I hope that these words can encourage some of you that read this, well I hope that it encourages all of you! Thank you for your prayers and encouraging words.

CONGRATS on losing so much this week, that is awesome!! I lost 1.5 so far this week. You will definitely make your goal by December if you keep this up.
