Whole Heart Faith- Week 2

Hello my sweet friends, time to check in. Last week was not so bad, I was a good girl!! lol The scale did not move, I am still weighing 177.8 But, maintaining is much better than gaining. God is so with me in my efforts, He daily gives me strength. I am doing really well with my eating plan, and exercise. But, I do want to improve as far as the exercise goes. This weekend at my church we are having a 24 hour fast and prayer time, I am looking so forward to this time. I know God is going to do amazing things in my life. My new statement is: I must decrease, and He must increase. Well, that is all for now, praying that the scale will move down next week. Sweet blessings to you my friends.

Hi Denise
I am on blog #2 as I love all of your blogs, I am so glad that you are doing well, just keep it up , as we are all try to get healthier!!.I like the idea of updates, because I think it encourages us all.

Here is mine,... I have been doing very well on my walking, especially this week. The eating has been okay, I am getting better at not overeating haven't gotten there yet as God is helping me with that. please keep praying not only for me but our other bloggers, as there are many who are dealing with the same issue of wanting to get healthy.
Blessings,

Hi Denise, I am so proud of you for not gaining any weight! I think that is a big deal. When you are diabetic it is so easy to pack on the pounds! I know!!!
I want salt so bad and the Dr's have said I can't even have fake salt! But now if we go out to eat and it has salt it taste way salty! and not as good as I thought!! Love and hugs Grams

I love that saying "maintaining is better then gaining!" That's where I am right now. Need to go down though! Can't give up!

Ooh I never thought of that scripture that way - we have to "decrease" our weight so He can "increase" in us - we have to "remove the flesh" so to speak so the spirit has more room to move in us! :) Neat perspective :) LOVE YOU!

And sweet blessings to you Denise! Keep up the determination. I need to exercise more, or so should I say at all! Have also recently been having the Him increasing and me decreasing statement in my mind. Thank you as always.

Hi! I'm Grace said...

God bless you with your goal to lose weight, Denise. You remind me of my mama. She almost don't eat anything because of her diabetes, too.
But right now, I thank God that she is not in danger zone. I truly thank God. It is a daily victory for her!
