Getting back to Business

So here I am "starting over" AGAIN!! I haven't posted for a while. It's been a LONG few weeks. Thank God spring soccer season is over with. Maybe our lives can get some what normal again. Maybe I can actually get my laundry all washed up and my house clean! That's my goal before the girls get out of school!!

My eating habits have really been terrible here lately. I've over ate a lot more than I should've, stopped exercising and practically "gave up"on my weightloss. I hate when I start feeling that way! I get this feeling that I'll be "fat" for the rest of my life or I guess this is how God made me. Then the Holy Spirit spoke to me that "God will never leave me nor forsake me", I was made for more, "Gods strength is made perfect in my weakness...for when I'm weak He is strong", "..Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest". I then read the passage Hebrews 6:12-20 mainly focusing on verses 17-19 (Accordingly God also, in His desire to show more convincingly and beyond doubt to those who were to inherit the promise the unchangeableness of His purpose and plan, intervened (mediated) with an oath. This was so that, by two unchangeable things [His promise and His oath] in which it is impossible for God ever to prove false or deceive us, we who have fled [to Him] for refuge might have mighty indwelling strength and strong encouragement to grasp and hold fast the hope appointed for us and set before [us]. [Now] we have this [hope] as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul [it cannot slip and it cannot break down under whoever steps out upon it--a hope] that reaches farther and enters into [the very certainty of the Presence] within the veil...)
God knew I was in my lowest of lows. He met me in my weakest, my downfall.

You knew me before I was born. You formed me in my mothers womb and set in me the course of my life. You know when I'm at my weakest. I pray for your strength to help me through today and each day as I daily take captive the desires of my flesh to over eat. I pray that you'll give me strengh as I overcome the need to want to over eat. Help me put food back in it's place where I can put you first place in my life. Lord, your strength is made perfect in my weakness. Thank you Jesus for the wonderful things you have in store for me. I love you Jesus, I love you Father God, I love you Holy Spirit..AMEN!

  1. I read your post and YOU sound like ME! I lost a lot of weight LAST year and then GAINED it back this winter. I can't fit into my slacks that I WAS wearing... It seems that I have trouble staying away from SWEETS, I love them and they love me. LOL My neighbor and I have started walking again 2 miles every evening after work. But with this rain we haven't been able to go.
    Her and I are doing weight watchers on our own. She joined last year so we have the information. What we do is buy Smart One's and count our points. There is a chart that you use to figure how many points a day you can have. As you lose weight your points will drop. Weight Watchers food is good and they have GOOD sweets you can eat. Since the form is at home I will scan it and email it to you. That way if you buy the meals at the store you can bring on with you for lunch and you won't have to prepare special things. There are also good recipes so you can make meals for your family and they won't know they are eatting healthy.
    Plus you have to drink WATER everyday.
    Let's do this together! We can be support for each other. Melanie
