5.5 lbs and Moving More

Thursday, July 19, 2007

I just wanted to make note that on Saturday July 14 I weighed in losing 2.2 lbs
for a total of 5.4lbs total loss since joining WW Memorial Day weekend 2007 and Moving More and also being accountable here on SP. I think for me after doing SP for a year, i just wasn't getting it... I personally needed to do something else, for me that was WW although I like the motivational meetings I am Moving More and for me that is what I needed all along, I suppose. Having Hypothyroid is an upward battle if one wants to lose weight but I have found that by MOVING MORE I am doing it. I have also learned the word Moderation and defined it instead of making my own discription of what I thought it should be. LOL
It is a SLOW process but that is ok as i knew it would be and I never thought that I would be losing at least .5lb to 1lb a week would ever be possible as I have tried to lose weight for such a long time.

I actually have been just walking.. Yep, but I have a NEED or a CRAVING to walk more.. weird I know. But it is a good thing.
We are headed to our first Disney Trip Sept 18-25 and I have heard that one can walk between 5-12 miles a day.. so that is also motivating me to get into walking shape and make my legs stronger so that I won't tire so easily when we get there. This too has helped my 4 yo DD walk with me so that she can build up her little legs a bit but also to stay healthy and excersise. We often will try to beat the clock or beat our record of how fast we walk for the distance of a mile.

We are having fun and it is working for that I am grateful.

There is a song by "Rush of Fools" called UNDO

I guess in a way, we all can relate somehow to the words of this song.


Rush Of Fools - Undo Lyrics

I've been here before, now here I am again
Standing at the door, praying You'll let me back in
To label me a prodigal would be
Only scratching the surface of who I've been known to be

Turn me around pick me up
Undo what I've become
Bring me back to the place
Of forgiveness and grace
I need You, need Your help
I can't do this myself
You're the only one who can undo
What I've become

I focused on the score, but I could never win
Trying to ignore, a life of hiding my sin
To label me a hypocrite would be
Only scratching the surface of who I've been known to be

Turn me around pick me up
Undo what I've become
Bring me back to the place
Of forgiveness and grace
I need You, need Your help
I can't do this myself
You're the only one who can undo
What I've become

Make every step lead me back to
The sovereign way that You

Turn me around pick me up
Undo what I've become
Bring me back to the place
Of forgiveness and grace
I need You, need Your help
I can't do this myself
You're the only one who can undo
What I've become


Here is the Video-Acoustic version

For me personally, this song really speaks to my heart as I have a strong faith, and I know that nothing "I" have done has helped me lose this unhealthy, unwanted weight. I need HIM, and there for I need help to "UNDO" what I have become.. UNHEALTHY.

The chorus says it all at least to me.

"Turn me around pick me up
Undo what I've become
Bring me back to the place
Of forgiveness and grace
I need You, need Your help
I can't do this myself
You're the only one who can undo
What I've become"


I hope that if you are reading this that this too will help to encourage you... to keep on moving forward and Move More!
