I lost another 4 pounds, that makes a total of 12 since I joined 14 days ago!!! I'm doing the happy Pami dance all over my!!

YESTERDAY was AMAZING!!! I had a hard time consuming all the calories I needed to. I had a serving of 6 different fruits and a serving of 5 different veggies with 4 slices of Nature's Own Double Fiber Wheat Bread, a small portion of black walnuts to get my fats and fiber up, a boiled egg, and let me say that I've never had a day where I wasn't hungry or wanting to snack in my life...but yesterday? Not one tiny urge! For dinner I had cod fish, Kraft Past Salad Italian Style, fresh steamed asparagus' and a salad and I have so much energy from eating all of the right foods, and none of the bad ones that if I weighed less I could do cartwheels all day! Yesterday was the first day in 41 years that I ate to live and not lived to eat. IT WAS AWESOME!!!!!!! Tuesday is my weigh in day and I can't wait to see if I've lost anymore, but more importantly is the feeling of satisfaction and energy I have over my victory and it makes me determined to do this each new day!

Lord Jesus, thank you for your tender mercy and providing me the desire and strength to fight daily battles in my life! You are my strength and my refuge and I give you all the glory of my success, because without You I couldn't do this. Each new morning you greet me with Your love and in each step I feel you by my side. I sing Your praises to all who will listen. In Your holy name, amen.

    Hi Pami
    I just read your spark page and and I sympathize with the loss of your mom. I lost my dad to lung cancer when he was 63. I just want to say that you are brave and encouraging. I was a single mom at age 22 and worked 3 jobs to make ends meet. I was poor but never let my daughter know it she only remembers love and fun and life. I leaned on God through all of the years and still do.

    I was heading down the road of ill health last year and was convinced that I had to start working on my health. I decided that it would be the exercise that I needed and it has been life changes. every mile I walk, swim, run, or ride my bike I feel my self getting healthier and healthier. So I encourage you to keep up the work and attitude and don't beat yourself up with each back slide because we all back slide, but its the two steps forward that counts

    I can see that you are a very determined person . Keep going at it and congratulations on your first leg of weight loss.
    God Bless
