Lots to do on this snowy Wednesday…..
First, let me welcome those of you who’ve popped over from the fabulous Facebook group Moms Together. One of the organizers of that group is my dear friend & fellow Proverbs 31 speaker and writer Susie Eller.
If you’d like to hop over and join, just click on the link above. Today we are chatting about organization for moms and I’m offering an organizational giveaway with one of my books and lots of extra goodies. We’d love to have you stop by and join us!
Next, before we get to today’s Weight Loss Wednesday post, I wanted to post a few pictures from my world. Suffice it to say, we’ve a got a lot of snow. :-) Not as much as predicted (2o inches) but about half that.
Meanwhile, let’s talk about being snowed.
Not snowed in, just snowed.
Snowed in our efforts to make healthy changes.
Haven’t you ever heard it declared “Boy has she got him snowed!!”?
Has the enemy got you snowed?
Think you’ll never be able to drop the weight you need to?
Fooled into believing you are a hopeless failure, doomed to be fat forever?
Deceived into thinking that you might as well give up before this thing even starts?
Oh sweet one, believe me. I have been there. And I am STILL there.
This has been a bumpy week. As soon as a decided, “ENOUGH!” and vowed to eat sensibly and exercise every day that I could, it was like I took a hungry pill.
I was so stinkin’ hungry all week!!!
So, for the first half, I failed at my healthy eating efforts. Well, I actually did great for most of the day and then slightly lost it at night.
Then, the past three days, I ignored my hunger, hit my knees instead of the pantry and made a priority to exercise.
So, my result when I hopped on the scale was a loss of .8 pounds.
Not even one full pound…..
But I’ll take it.
You see, I was certain it was going to go up so I’m thankful for any downward trend!
Now, how about you?
How was your week? (You don’t need to tell us if the scale went up or down. Unless you want to!)
And what ways has Satan gotten you snowed in this whole healthy lifestyle issue?
Praying for you all!
