Well I am beginning my 2nd week of Living Well! I have to admit I really started yesterday after Easter, at least in the eating area. Steve and I started walking again last week. I feel very good about where I am at mentally and spiritually! I love the articles that Darlene has at the Live Well website. That have helped alot. I read the February Article and it talked about setting goals. I would say that first and foremost I just want to be healthier, that includes a healthier weight! People would be shocked if they really knew how much I weight! I don't think I look like I way that much, at least not clothed. I just don't feel well, and I loved the way I felt when I had lost weight in the past. I had energy, and I loved doing physical things! Not so much right now! My big issue has been longevity, making the lifestyle change! I haven't ever really given complete control over this issue to God! I have to admit I am treading lightly, not expecting to much, but taking little baby steps towards trusting, and letting go! Boy is it hard! But I know that God wants me to be healthy also. He wants us to be good stewards of all He's given us, and well my body is one of his possessions that I need to take care of.
I have started a Journal for both my food intake and for writing down what God is showing me. That is going well, except I left the silly thing at work today! It's a good thing I have to go back tomorrow!
I am also thinking of starting an accountability group at church that meets maybe once a month to encourage each other. Women or men for that matter could come and discuss that God is doing to help them in their struggle. There would be no scale, but coffee, tea, and encouragement!
So that is where I am at today!
God is so Good!
