I simply have not had time to post over here for a while. No news is good news in this case. I have been making baby steps in establishing some good eating habits. My husband has been encouraging me to join weight watchers. As I have shared I was in the program two other times. Last Saturday I joined. I made this decision based on several reasons. I had $10 a week extra to burn and thought, why not. No seriously, I really do not like having to pay. Real Reasons. . .
  • Most importantly, my husband thought it would be encouraging for me.
  • I needed more accountability. Although spark people has the wonderfully encouraging articles available - I find the group setting better accountability. (As I am typing I am thinking, you know spark people did have groups you could join. Maybe that would have worked.)
  • I am so close to goal weight (and lifetime membership status) I can taste it ;-) and I just can't seem to stick with it on my own.
  • I know in the past ww has helped me establish good habits of eating what I need and no more.

Staying the Course

I haven't posted for some time. I have been maintaining weigh wise. I have been struggling to stay encouraged on a spiritual front. Feel so easily distracted, and I have much to distract me. I know the right thing to do and am just NOT doing it. Drew is so faithful to encourage me to stay in God's Word and to continue to call out to the LORD moment by moment!

My sister Terry's incredible commitment to the LORD and continued weight loss has been a great encouragement to me. Also, I was reading aloud a biography of Abraham Lincoln to some of the kids and was struck by Lincoln's commitment to improve himself. He would make daily goals of what he was going to do that day to be better the next day. Inspired me to keep a daily log of verses I must memorize etc.

I know I rambled quite a bit here, but I needed to :-)
