    Hebrews 4:16
    Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

    Jeffrey never wanted to put anybody out. Instead of asking for help, he would struggle along on his own. Often, Jeffrey didn't get anything accomplished because he refused to impose on anyone else. Sometimes, we act that way with God. We ask ourselves why God would be interested in helping us solve our problems. The thing is, God wants us to come to Him with our heartfelt needs. We have been invited to come before the throne of grace, and that includes with our diets. When we're honest, we'll admit that we need help, and there is no greater source of help than God.

    Today's thought: Our hope to lose weight becomes reality when we put our trust in God.
  • Good Morning 137.6 and 109/71. Just trying to hang in there. Will pray for Ms Connie and Jen for your toe.
  • Good morning to all
    Diana---yikes!!!!!! that just made me cringe as soon as I read your travel nightmare

    WI same as yesterday and I was really expecting some loss this am 155.8 grrr and grrr and grrr....LOL
    WO wasn't feeling the love from my body today. My arthritis in my fingers (thumbs and forefingers) are really flaired up today so griping the weights was pretty much out so I had to use the machines...can't drop the weight there. Anyway I am going to take some aleive and put some cream on so I can use the keyboard today while working.
    Food wise ate 18 points yesterday and that included a small serving of crispy cheetos...thanks DH for bringing this into the house. Can't blame him he did not put them in my hand then in my mouth.

    I will have time for personals I hope later today but I am thinking of all of you.....You keep me forcused so thank you for all the support I receive

  • I read this scripture this morning that I found encouraging.

    Proverbs 4:25-27
    Look straight ahead, and fix your eyes on what lies before you. Mark out a straight path for your feet; stay on the safe path. Donít get sidetracked; keep your feet from following evil.

    I went out to dinner last night with my husband at an amazing bread company. They have local homemade breads and make sandwiches and salads. Simple but good. They always give generous samples and I had some. I ordered a salad for dinner. My husband got a big ol sandwich (over 1000 calories) and I kept feeling jealous, but was reminded that my choices are reflected by my health and how I feel and I am happy. I have set out a path for myself and it is my choice to sacrifice the things I have so that I can live healthfully. The moment I take my eyes off my path and look at someone elseís (even my own husbands) I can become dissatisfied.

    I wanted to share that with anyone who may be feeling jealous that others can eat this or that. Thereís always a sacrifice in our choices.
  • Hi All
    146.6 up 2.6

    2326 cal yesterday - binged on cucumber sandwiches

    Oy

    Out of kilter.
    Watched some Ted talks on intermittent fasting and a couple of Michael Moore's videos today to help me get back on track.

    My knee isore swollen and my elbow hurts more than usual. Likely in part from the food induced inflammation.

    Strict fasting until tomorrow and then strict introduction of food. Good food.

    I am back on previous roller coaster ride if wanting bread and bakery .

    Cannot give in!

    Rachel- super on the 880! How great that you were not hungry for more!

    Jen- did those butt exercises. The 90 and 135. Rough! And I think they may help my knees by helping me to do more in my glutes . When you say 200 knee lifts what do you mean? Also what is this bending and crossing? I also did some of the Cindy Crawford leg exercises. Any particular one you like the most?

    Diana- whew that traffic! Ugh. Hope Miss Connie feels better.

    JulesMarion- it is hard when others can eat more. Some days that effects me and others not so much. I think I am in a better place sometimes to handle everything. Suspect it has a to do with sleep and mindfulness. The trick is to get myself in that grounded state more often.

    I am very tired today and not going to do caffeine so that my night sleep is better
  • good afternoon! will continue praying for ms connie! keep us posted diana. had to make a last minute trip to old navy so I could copies of my last two pay check stubs printed out. I tried doing it last night at home but was having MAJOR PROBLEMS with updating my password. I went to the store hoping I could do it there but had MAJOR PROBLEMS there. denise, my boss, gave me the phone number to call and the extension to press. GOT MY LAST TWO PAY CHECK STUBS E-MAILED TO ME! now to backtrack a little, went for a power walk before I took the 9:00 bus to Lakewood this morning. came home and took down the load of laundry that I hung up before I left this morning. IT SMELLED WONDERFUL! put a load of towels in the dryer. had lunch. made my phone call. power walked and ran errands after I made my phone call. will go for another power walk and run another errand in a few minutes.

    June 29

    Philippians 3:8
    . . .I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ.

    A young man dreamed that he was standing before a table spread with a wide array of tantalizing foods. Beyond the table stood Jesus. The young man began eating the food, and he became com-pletely engrossed in his consumption. When he finished, Jesus was gone, and he didn't know where to look to find Him. Whenever we engage in gluttony of any kind, our attention is turned from Christ to our own selfish wants. There should be nothing more important in our lives than doing what is pleasing to God. He wants us to be the best we can possibly be. Food, and our love of food, should always take a second place to our love of the Lord.

    Today's thought: Eating pleases me; dieting pleases God!
  • 138 still struggling - BP 116/70

    I am thinking of trying to taper down the coffee; I probably drink 6 -7 cups a day and am in the cycle I need it to stay alert but I probably need it because it messes with my sleep........I am addicted and get killer headaches if I go cold turkey. DH mentioned how coffee seems to stimuate our appetite. I know there are health benefits but need to look at maybe other places to find same. Well at least hte fridge dropped in price and I went to Lowes with my receipt and got $190 back. The guy could not figure out how to give me the sales tax back and I said...to let it go (there was a line behind me) for the inconvenience I am also getting back $100 after they install it ....so a fridge with a list price of $3599 will ultimately be $2499 .............and it *does* have good reviews........supposed to get here July 4th assuming it is ok

    Starting today since it is the weekend NO afternoon cup unless I get a headache from cutting bag. Coffee headaches are the worst and I know I will wake up tomorrow early with one without the afternoong cup. Tomorrow 2 cups only in the am.

    Ciece - I think one of my many projects will have to be to set up a clothesline on my deck--it will have to be the upper deck that does not have the posts and since my deck is aluminum with metal spindles it will have to be creative but I am sure we could make something freestanding ......

    Zallie - bread, bakery, caffeine all tough.

    Jules - you are right. There is always sacrifice. Discipline and they reward of being in a leaner healthier body is worth it.

    Nancy - I hope today is better

    HERE"S TO JULY - LETS ROCK IT.
