*If you think you can do it, you can. If you believe you can do it, you will. If you trust you can do it, you will make a difference*

Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31

Hello, My name is Courtney. I live in Central Oklahoma along with my husband and our two boys. It's been a long while since I've been on here. It's a great website to keep track of team challenges... so I'm diving back in! Finishing 2020 STRONG!


Something to always remember...
Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Isaiah 43:18-19
*I am forgetting the former things and I'm not dwelling on the past. The past can't be changed. I do see new things in the future and I am believing in myself to meet my goals this year.

God will give me strength when I'm willing to give Him my weakness.

My Pastor's sermon today (08/03/08) said it all:
"GO FOR THE GOLD"

1 Corinthians 9:24-27 says;
Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. they do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. Therefore I do not run like a man running aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the air. No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.

2 Timothy 4:7-8 says;
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day---and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.

We have to have the DESIRE, a DIRECTION, the DETERMINATION and the DEVOTION...to "RUN IN SUCH A WAY AS TO GET THE PRIZE." 1 Corinthians 9:24

I can relate to these passages. I have the desire to lose weight. This website gives me the direction. I have the determination to complete what I have started, now it's time to give my devotion to get to the finish line.


I love this hyme:

*****It Is Good To Praise the Lord******

It is good to praise the Lord. It is good to gaze upon His majesty; To proclaim His love in the morning, and His faithfulness at night. Oh, it is good to worship and praise the Lord.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
**I found this on a website and posted here on my page to remind everyday how to stay committed to meeting my goals**

God has given us seven keys to successfully defeat and kill the evil spirit of gluttony. These keys are essential and will cause us to have longivity here on this earth. If we don't do the first four keys, we won't be able to do the last three. In order to lose weight God's way, we must use all of the seven keys. I pray that God will strengthen us to do all seven.


7 KEYS TO SUCCESS

**1. PRAYER & FASTING

I Thessalonians 5:17 Pray without ceasing.
I Timothy 2:8 I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands without wrath and doubting.
Psalms 55:17 Evening, morning, and at noon will I pray and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice.
Matthew 26:41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, by the flesh is weak.
Mark 11:24 Therefore I say unto you, what things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them and ye shall have them.
Luke 18:1 ...men out always to pray, and not faint.
Daniel 6:10 ...Daniel kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God.
Jude 20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost.
Matthew 17:21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.
Matthew 6:16-18 Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face; That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.

**2. GOD'S WORD

Psalms 119:105 God's Word is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path.
Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Matthew 4:4 But he (Jesus) answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
Psalms 119:11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.

**3. HOLY SPIRIT

St. John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but speak: and he will shaow you things to come.
St. John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatwoever I have said unto you.
Romans 14:17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.
James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

**4. FAITH

Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Romans 1:17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
I Corinthians 5:7 (for we walk by faith, not by sight)
Hebrews 11:6 But withour faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that deligently seek him.
Hebrews 10:23 Let us held fast the profesion of our faith without wavering; for he is faithful that promised;
Mark 9:23 Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
I Peter 1:7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:

**5. HEALTHY EATING

I Corinthians 10:31 Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.
Psalms 104:14 He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food our of the earth;
Genesis 1:29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat (food).
Genesis 9:3 Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat (food) for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.
Proverbs 25:27 It is not good to eath much honey: so for men to search their own glory is not glory.
III John Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

**6. EXERCISE

I Timothy 4:8 For bodily exercise profitheth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.
James 2:17-18 Even so faith, if it hath not works is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: show me thy faith without thy works, and I will show thee my faith by my works. (exercise)

**7. PATIENCE

Hebrews 6:12 that ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.
Hebrews 12:1-2a Wherefore, seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith....
Romans 8:25 But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience waith for it.
Luke 21:19 In your patience possess ye your souls.
James 5:7-8 Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it , until he receive the early and latter rain. Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.

    I just wanted to say thanks for taking on December's "Minutes to Christmas Challenge! So glad you're on board!

    Don't forget to post minutes, activities and minutes to goal on the days you workout. If you can't post daily, just keep track of your activities and minutes and post as often as you can.

    It's very important to post as often as you can so that we can help keep each other moving and motivated!

    Good Luck with you goals!

    Hugz,

    Hi there!

    Thanks so much for commenting! I've actually been a little slow lately. Not quite 100% every day. It's hard!

    There are some things on the plan that I don't like - for example, I'm almost never hungry for my mid-day snack so I don't eat it, and I'm supposed to have two extra carbs per day but I don't eat them (just because I haven't found any on-plan carbs that I feel like eating).

    So then I tell myself that those missed things add up to like 200 calories which I can use for this cookie! But then that cookie turns into 10, etc.

    My first month on nutrisystem I lost 15 pounds, but now I've been basically at a standstill. I am on plan almost all day and then inevitably cheat at some point. At least I'm not gaining though, right?

    I've also been slammed at work and haven't been able to exercise. I usually exercise at night and the past few weeks I've been taking the time at night (after my son goes to sleep) to try to finish up stuff at work.

    I really need a kick in the butt to get back on track! Hopefully your message will help me. =) Thanks for that!

    Sorry it takes me so long to reply. I work during the day and try not to get online unless it's business related. I personally can drink water all the time...I need to make myself do it more 'cause my first thought is to drink diet dr pepper 'cause I like the caffine in the afternoon. The biggest problem with H20 is what you said; the bathroom breaks! I travel on the road and that's not a good combination.

    I'm learning to chew gum in the afternoon when I get a craving...my husband doesn't like me to chew gum (I tend to pop it)!

    My biggest weight problem is I don't like to eat ALL DAY. Then when I get home I eat big...my husband cooks and it's a full course meal. He's a country boy and loves all the trimmings. But I'm trying to help him learn new habits. Portion control is hard. I keep telling myself "if you eat for two people, you'll look like two peopl" So I'm trying to cut out seconds. :) I would love the guide sheet.

    Keep in touch....I love this!!
