Drum Roll Please…

Good Morning ya’ll…
So today is “Weigh In Day”!!!! I lost 1 lbs. Not sure how I feel about that 😛

I was hoping for at least 3 lbs… but minus 1 is better than plus 1. So, for next week I have to crank up the work outs.

Things I noticed this week:

  • Increased energy
  • Eating 6 small snack meals curved appetite (fruits, veggies, nuts, protein)
  • Drinking 1 galon of water a day kept me full all day long

Oh! I also have to share with you that I figured out a way to deal with my “salty, tangy, crunchy” cravings. Celery sticks, cucumbers and I dipped my pinky finger in mustard for the salty, tangy 🙂 Eureka! It worked!

Today’s Thinspiration

“Blessed is the woman who perseveres under trial, because when she has stood the test, she will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.” -James 1:12


The three duties of every Christian are giving, praying, and fasting

Good Morning!

I am very excited about today… “Do tell” you say…

Well today, I will begin a 21 day Daniel Fast. A Daniel Fast consists of fruits, veggies, and water followed by lots of prayer and lots of time in God’s Word. I do not want to miss out on a great spiritual breakthrough because I fail to fast. In Pastor Jentenzen Franklin’s Book “Fasting” he says that when we eliminate food from our diet for a number of days, our spirit becomes uncluttered by the things of this world and amazingly sensitive to the things of God.

We see this in Psalms 42:7 When David was fasting and we see how his hunger and thirst for God was greater than his desire for food. It’s like something in us breaks when we completely depend on God during a fast.

In Ecclesiastes 4:12 it says “A threefold cord is not quickly broken.” What do you think Solomon is talking about here? GIVING, PRAYING, AND FASTING.

And then, Jesus says in Matthew 17:20 “Nothing will be impossible”. I am taking that promise to the bank now! hahaha. But seriously, I sometimes think about God’s blessing as a grocery store, I put in one thing in my cart, then another and maybe one more thing… but how many more blessings am I leaving behind? Why am I not filling up my grocery cart? All the items in the store are free, but what is keeping me away from seeing what has been laid out for me?

I don’t want to be easily broken when temptation comes knocking at my door, and trust me sometimes it knocks so hard it can get a little scary. I’m not just talking about food here, how many of you battle with sin every single day? I know it’s not just me.

If you are ready to experience a supernatural spiritual breakthrough with God, then begin a fast today, right now. There are many kinds of fasts, maybe you can fast from TV or music, or maybe just fast in the morning, however you chose to fast know that God will see your sacrifice, and with this extra time you will have, use it to dive into His Word.

Remember that with God we are able to overcome all things. Along with the Bible, I strongly encourage you to buy Pastor Jentenzen Franklin’s Book “Fasting”, it’s about $10 Amazon or B&N carry it.

Godbless 🙂

Be transformed by the renewing of your minds.

Hi ya’ll!

I’m just a girl fervently seeking God. I suffered loss, and although I knew God, I decided to self-gratify with food, in my unsuccessful attempt to heal a broken heart.

I lost my father on 11/22/2006 and on 12/05/2006 I ended a relationship that broke me in every sense of the word. We all go through moments of brokenness, and it is in those times that we should remain closer to God and cry out to Him from our knees. But, like many of us do, I allowed my flesh to take over, and although a pint of Haagen-Dazs a day made me forget temporarily; my waistline did not. It saddens me to say that within a year I went from 130 lbs. to 286 lbs.

Although, I have managed to lose some of that weight, I could be and should be more disciplined. But, the “Shoulda, Coulda, Woulda’s” are finished. “What if’s” kill the spirit.  Today, I am turning the page and I’m allowing God to transform and re-new my mind again!

“Do not be conformed to this world, but
continually be transformed by the renewing of
your minds so that you may be able to determine
what God’s will is-what is proper, pleasing,
and perfect.”-Romans 12:2

Now it’s time to take responsibility for my weakness and lack of faith and call on to God who can and will provide me with a strategy to overcome this obstacle.

If I am to call myself a disciple of Jesus Christ than I must live by the Spirit of Excellence, Disciple, Self-Control and Obedience. Our God is a God of order not chaos. And so, today I encourage you to join me in this fight of faith, remember that we are called to be conquerors and overcomers.

“No, in all these things we are more than
conquerors through him who loved us.”
–Romans 8:37

Lord, I humbly come before you and my request is that your Word speaks louder than ever, my desire is to be excellent as You are excellent. I ask this in the name of Jesus – Amen.

Current Weight: Tooo embarrassed to say… maybe I’ll tell you later

Current BMI: 45.2

Goal Weight: 110 lbs

Goal BMI: 21.5
