Losing it at the intersection
Well, I'm happy to report that I've been "losing it"...weight that is!!! Yay for me.
I've lost 10 pounds in the last few weeks. I'm so proud of myself. I can do almost ANYTHING easier than this. And it requires supernatural power from God to do it.
A while back I posted about a special diet I was on that focused on watching the glycemic index. In case you are wondering, no I did not lose 10 pounds on that. It's worked for some of my friends, however after trying it for several weeks I discovered it was not for me, mostly because I could never stay on it for life. I don't need a die-it as much as I need a live-it! It's just as well because when I had my physical a few weeks ago the doctor told me that a few challenges I have require me to make healthy low fat choices more than focusing on the glycemic index or anything else. This is my focus now as well as portion control, and exercise. Although I'm not going to WW right now, I still have all the point values memorized in my head from before, and add things up as I go along and make sure I don't go over a certain amount. Although on WW you can have "anything you want" as long as it's within the points values, I am not doing that -- just going by the guidelines of healthy/low fat. I got an elliptical thanks to Becca's parents (Pastor George & Irene) and have been on it every day of the week but Sundays. It's workin' for me.
When I take off the next 10 lb., I'll mention it for a bloggy celebration. It'll happen...I'm in the zone, determined and totally dependent on the Lord.
