Fit Mommy Friday: WK 8: Counting Down...
What an amazing challenge this has become!
It is encouraging to gain such momentum from reading your progress as well as working on my own! I don't weigh every day or even every week, b/c I learned years ago that this kind of practice just sets me up for failure, but if it works for you, of course, by all means go for it! So since I can't give you a number of pounds for the week, I can say that my clothes are bagging on me~that once worn bigger sizes are now being put away so I can recycle them to someone else~Praise God! I AM NOT keeping them~I wore them wayyy too long!
Along the way, my food plan has changed just a little bit. I am eating a few less carbs than I began eating. I have reduced the morning eating to one serving most days instead of two, and alternating the yogurt or milk serving between morning, lunch or supper meals to equal two instead of the three I was consuming. The overall bulk of my food is decreasing! This is HUGE, too!
With my obstacles, I have to ask myself, 'HOW do you eat an elephant?' meaning that conquering a terrible situation of ill health due to morbid obesity and inactivity is akin to eating a GREAT BIG animal??? The resounding answer is 'ONE second/minute/hour/DAY AT a TIME! or...one bite at a time~each meal or food encounter being put in its proper place~in the right way: God honoring. God honoring amounts, combinations and times'...THIS is a new concept for me, too. I had NEVER considered GIVING God my food each day!
Almost forgot the water~still struggle, but this headache means that the tall glass I just poured and downed half of needs to be emptied! STILL working on this one~since the stomach has shrunk, getting it all in a tough! BUT HEY, stuffing water beats stuffing food~LOL!!!
Okay, Fit Mommys~here you have it...one fat woman's attempts to give God her life...and you can join up the efforts and read mo HERE!
