Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Thursday, December 22, 2011

Just wanted to pop in and wish my friends and everyone else a Merry Christmas.

Lord willing you will be seeing more of me in the new year. I went with my family to the McWane Science Center in Birmingham to carry my grandson and saw myself in several mirrors. I hated the way I looked! I am huge! I do not like that at all. I have never been this big in my life. With God's help, I will lose this weight and get into better shape. I was exhausted after spending a few hours walking all over that place. I will feel so much better when I do this. I have recently been reading where there is no such thing as 'willpower'. It is God's power that will help me be the best I can be. I have to stop sabotaging myself by eating unhealthy foods and also by not exercising. I have to stop making excuses. No one can do this but me and my Lord. No one made me this way, but myself. I didn't get this way overnight even though sometimes it seems as if I did, and I know I can not lose this weight overnight.

It is sad when one knows what he/she has to do, but not love himself or herself enough to do anything about it. I know what I have to do, but doing it is another thing all together. I must find an alternative to emotional eating. My emotions have been all over the map during the past few months. I have days where I cry at a drop of a hat. I get irritable over the smallest things, and that is not good. I will be spending more time with Jesus and reading my Bible to overcome this.

Please pray for me during this time. I am tired of being so wishy washy and not taking care of myself. I don't only need a new mindset, but a new heartset. My son is getting married in March, and I don't want to be this fat. Yes, I am morbidly obese according to the doctor. I am tired of seeing those words in my records. I will change: for the better or the worse. It has to be for the better, Lord. Please help me. I need you in the worst way, Lord. I give you my all.

Love you all,
Have a Merry Christmas and enjoy time with family and friends. JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON.

    Teresa: Sorry that I'm just now reading this blog, but I did pray for you this morning, I know those exact feelings. I have a Grandson getting married in June and I'm trying to loose some of this weight before then, You are right In Christ Alone, a wonderful song to sing all day, but its true (IN CHRIST ALONE) is the only way to view every meal or snack, Just listen to his voice.

    Hi Teresa, Happy New Year! I loved the picture of Jackson! Man, he's getting big! If you need some inspiration, read JENN245 or JEN245's blog on losing 100 lbs. You can do it, one day at a time... progress, not perfection. I know you can do it. Treat yourself as well as you do everyone else! Work on that vision board/collage again, buy your dress for the wedding in a smaller size.. you will look great! emoticon emoticon emoticon
