Track by Faith

Have you ever been worried about gaining back the weight you have lost? Perhaps you don’t really trust that if you keep tracking and staying within your point range, you will never have to go back to where you once were.

I try my best to not be worried about how my new clothes will not fit tomorrow because of weight gain. One way to weaken the grip that worry can have over me is to put my confidence and faith in tracking. I know that tracking has worked in the past. It has to work today and tomorrow, right?

Have you ever lost your balance in the program and gave consideration to not working the program and go on your own?

I wonder if I’m one of the those people in the program who has to leave the program only to come back twenty pounds heavier than ever before telling everyone “I tried it my way and failed at it, so i guess I have to be here every week (sigh).”
This program used to be easy and fun but now my arms are swinging around trying to bring balance back to my walk and I’m starting to stumble.

Have you ever lost the joy of Weight Loss and got tired of the same routines and felt like moving on but you sit back and wonder, what is there to move on to?

Ha ha (lol) I can get lost in cynical thinking and in the past I fed it until it became this big ball of frustration choking out the joy of living. I’m done with that attitude and I’m moving on to continue being excited about weight loss and healthy living.

Today I’m Tracking by Faith, Bringing Back My Balance and Delighting in Weight Loss.

Have a super terrific day friends.


How Do You stir up gratefulness?

It’s the break of day and I’m captivated by the warmth of the sun poking through the window and falling upon my morning figure. Some physical aches and pains are beginning to emerge through the sand: like,  grumpy crabs with disruptive intentions to scare away my daily aspirations.

I tried to use this morning to improve myself through some personal studies but was overtaken by physical irritations and felt as if I were far out in the ocean drowning in frustration.   It’s taking me a long time to bring life to my body to carry out the workings of my inner desires.  There are times when I’m bitten by sand bugs of anxiety who worry about my difficulty in securing scholastic and career saturated pursuits – I keep hoping that someday I will rise out of bed and the challenges I have will be over. I am the type of person who has to pry open my toughened exterior like an oyster to bring out the pearl within. So I put to rest my unproductive efforts and run into the arms of one thing that releases me: the spirit of positive expression.

One habit that kept me going over the years is to set forth some time to encourage myself. If we are forever locked up inside ourselves never revealing what’s going on then there is little room for growth and an unhealthy thought can attract similar thoughts. Most of us would rather walk down the beeches of vitality then to sit in a puddle of negative thinking. Some of the methods we use to come out of ourselves are through prayer, movement, weight watchers, painting, studies, a loved one, a book, or a piece of writing

I am revived by stirring up a wave of gratitude that washes over me and through me allowing my spirit to dance the rhythmic pleasantries of the heart. I have so much to appreciate these days. Thankfulness leaps forth and sets free the essence of me. I can feel the gentle wind of positive affirmations rest comfortably in my mind as I gracefully lift up my hands presenting the comfort of “It’s going to be okay.”

My day has been rescued and awaken by gratitude – how do you stir up gratefulness?



Take a Break

What do you do to get yourself recharged so that you don’t burn out and quit?

Body starting to get stiff and mind not fully engaged today – it’s time for some rest and relaxation. Over the years I’ve realized how important taking a break is in order to function better. I’m sure we’re not all like this but for a lot of us we are. I’ve seen more and more people over the years burning out and coming to a mental crash because too much is going on in their lives. Perhaps a day of rest may have kept them together.

And on the cautious note: another lesson I’ve learned about myself is that when I’m completely idle, the hunger cravings come dancing in wanting me to partner with them, lol. I try and stay busy with stuff that is relaxing and stress free.

After a day of rest, I usually find new energy to push forward.

Enjoy your Weekend Guys & Gals and hope you get some rest.
