"Anything God ever did He can do again. Anything He ever did anywhere He can do here, and anything God ever did with anybody He can do with you."

Sometimes we get it right and sometimes we get it wrong. The last two years have really been something. Starting November 2010, when I took my first jogging step at 301lbs to June 2011 when I hit 253, then chaos hit August 2011 and I maintained around 258 for months on end. Fast forward to June 2012 I hit 263, decided it was time to kick start my weightloss again and tried Eat to Live for 2 weeks. It was a success, I got back to down to 258 then stopped. Started eating normal and BOOM I gained 20lbs in one month. (I have to shake my head right now just thinking about it). I started 2013 at 282, lots 17lbs with the 17 day diet and then like always, I stopped trying. By September I was back up to 299. And here we go again, now its May 2014 and I am sitting right back where I was three and half years ago at 301.

Well the plan is to move and eat healthy. That is all there really is. Move and eat healthy. Keep moving, keep eating healthy and success will come.

I have decided this summer will be the summer of healthy activity and foods. My 6 year old and I will be doing a blog called Feasibly Fit and we are going to document our healthy ways. We are going to explore our town and go do something new each week. I will be trying out new exercises (even if its just once). We will be cutting out the junk and trying to eat as best as we possibly can. Time for change is now. I can't live like this any more. Miserable is not the life God intended for me.

"Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us… (Heb 12:1)"

    A Prayer For Weight Loss
    Father God, I come to you in the precious name of Jesus that you will perform a miraculous healing in my life concerning my desire to lose weight. Thank you Lord that nothing is impossible with you and that you can help take away my desire to overeat and fill the voids within me that cause me to seek food as a substitute.
    Lord, touch my mind right now, help me to see what causes me to overeat, give me a strong desire to want to take care of my body and see it as you do Lord. Help me to make the right food choices and touch my mind with creativity concerning food and what I eat. May I be restored to divine health again.
    As I strive to do this Lord, please bless all within me - my cells, and my metabolism - that they will function properly so I can lose the weight. And let me take it one day at a time and not worry about anything else but the cares of the day that I woke up to.
    Thank you Father for loving me enough to help me through this.

    Believe in yourself!

    Believe you were made to do any task without calling for aid.

    Believe, without growing too scornfully proud,
    that you, as the greatest and least are endowed.

    A mind to do thinking, two hands and two eyes
    are all the equipment God gives to the wise.

    Believe in yourself!

    You are divinely designed and perfectly made
    for the work of mankind.

    The truth you must cling to through danger and pain;
    the heights others have reached you can also attain.

    Believe to the very last hour, for it is true.
    That what ever you will, you've been gifted to do.

    Believe in yourself and step out unafraid.

    By misgivings and doubt be not easily swayed.

    You've the right to succeed;
    the precision of skill which betokens the great
    you can earn if you will!

    The wisdom of the ages is yours if you'll read.

    But you've got to believe in yourself to succeed.
