I think maybe some of you misunderstood something in my last blog. The part about how to "fix" all the stuff, that I am aware of now.

When I said I did not know HOW to fix it except to rely on God, I was talking about my emotional state, the realizations that I had come to, etc... Only God has the power to show me how to change my thinking or to just totally transform my thinking.

As far as health and weight issues, I KNOW what to do and that is why I am here to figure out what works for ME!

I know I have not been doing all the right things and the right things I AM doing, I have not been faithful to track them.

HOWEVER... just so you know, sometimes when I am so self-absorbed in what is happening inside... mentally, emotionally, etc... I have a hard time focusing on other things. When I get down, I have a hard time climbing back up mentally. This is an inside growth time for me and I will be doing what I can FORCE myself to do weight wise, health wise, etc...

I also know that doing the right things health wise help the mental aspects, etc... There are alot of things I KNOW in my head... those things are having to come to fruition in my spirit, mind, body and soul and it is taking time.

So, PLEASE be patient with me and continue to pray that God will lead guide and direct me.

Thanks and lots of love,

    I think you're on the right track. True healing comes from the inside out. Your physical weight will leave when you become more equipped to deal with your mental and emotional weights. I understand exactly where you're at.... Godspeed on your jouney!

    I got it!
    You are EXACTLY where you're supposed to be Shannon, and I think you are doing FAN-TASTIC! ALL the experiences we've been through up to now, has prepared us for this moment. I so "get" everything you's like everything I've already said in my mind or to a friend at one point or another. It's cool to hear YOU saying it, though, because it just confirms once again in my spirit that we are on the right track~God is putting all the pieces together and is faithful to COMPLETE what He's begun in us!!
    I know you already know this, but...we can't worry about not doing EVERYTHING that we know to do. We CAN'T! As we grow and plant seeds for ourselves along the way we'll eventually see the beautiful garden that God's planned our lives to be all along.
    BRAINFREEZE! Gotta go to bed! LOL!!
    Love you!!

    You are going through a learning process.We all have to learn by trial and error.When something doesn't work we learn what we can from it and move on.You will get to the right thing for you.

    Do as you are and stay focused on God.He wil lead you to the right path for you.Sometimes the Lord has us go through things to help build things into our character.Just think Shannon once you get it figured out all the other women you are going to be able to help.

    I know when you get down it seems like it is so hard to get up.
    I understand about knowing the right things but just not seeming to do them.I feel that way so many times.I know the right things to do but do the things I shouldn't.We'll get it Shannon.I'm in this with you.I wish I could be there to give you a great big hug but since I can't I'll send you one emoticon Let me know what I can do for you.
    Love Ya,

    Your journey has many roads to travel on and we are here to listen, absorb and give you our take - which could be helpful or just something to discard. Unfortunately none of us know for sure what will help or not, only you and your faith can sort out the next path to take.

    Edison, considered a successful inventor, had many failures before successfully completing an invention.

    You cannot succeed without a few failures along the way - this from someone who has been losing weight for 31 years. I am still working on it and I intend to succeed.

    Do not be afraid to fail to grow stronger! emoticon
