Week Two, Day One

I did pretty good at the Luau. I only used about 15 FLEX points this whole week, when you are allowed 35. I don't like using any of them because it's always a little hard to get back in the mind set of, "YOU Can't have anything you want today!".
Yesterday Shane woke up around 6:45 am, not usual for him. I got up with him and gave him breakfast. We had about an hour before we had to start getting ready for church, so I had some coffee and decided to take Molly on a walk. I had Davey get up to be with Shane, and Molly and I walked for about 20 minuets. I was pretty strict yesterday with my points, and didn't go over at all. For dessert I warmed up 2 tbsp chocolate chips (3 points) and ate it with a graham cracker (1 point). The chocolate was delicious, but I don't want to eat it often. I can't believe I am starting my 8th day on WW and have stuck to the program! Whoo hoo!
At the Luau, I began to notice a lot of people in our Sunday School class that have gained weight! Something I never noticed before, but dieting makes you aware of everyone's fat and all that they eat. I hate this because I so don't want to judge anyone because that was me, still is me. There is a few couples still newly married that have gained weight. It's totally normal! I gained 35 pounds in 6 months of being married! But at the same time I want to shout..."Stop!! Put down that 15th pizza roll!! If you don't get a hold of this now it will only get harder when you have kids!!!!" but I didn't, cause it's none of my business!
Yesterday at church two people asked me how the pregnancy was going. Ugh. ;(
I have been extra anxious lately about our future. It's down to two Pastor's, and if neither of them offer us full time positions, Davey will most likely be joining the military.
I so wish we could go to Hawaii and work at the church we went to visit and interview with. The only reason we don't is because they could only pay us $1,000 a month, so Davey would have to work a part time job as well. Which we were totally fine with and prepared for, when our Pastor told us he prayed about it and really thought it would be best if Davey didn't have to work two jobs. He didn't have peace about it for our family. I know it would be hard. But so will the military! It has been Davey's dream for a long time though. He says, "I want to lead people in something that really matters." and that is his hearts desire.
There are so many things I think about though, how can I do everything on my own? I will be lonely! We must stay close to God! What if we can't find a good church? What if something happens to Davey? What if it puts strain on our marriage? What if he changes while in Iraq? Ect. Ect.
I love my husband so much and I am so thankful he wants God's will. One of the churches we are waiting to hear from, Davey really likes a lot and said he is %100 that is where we should be if God opens the door. So please pray for us!
I have a little plan.. but am not sure if it could happen. You all know how much I love the beach, especially Santa Monica. Well, if Davey enlists, then I was thinking about putting a lot of our stuff in storage and moving to Santa Monica with the boys while Davey is in basic training and officer school. It would take him about 5 months. If we could be with Davey during OCS (Officer Cadet School) we will. For some reason, I just believe it would be easier to be without him if we lived some where I loved! Maybe San Francisco near the marina so I would be closer to family. Who knows!? Only God! I am thankful for that.

So many thoughts - 1)I'm glad you're doing good with weight watchers. Keep up the good work. 2) The future is so uncertain for so many right now. Just finding comfort in knowing God has a plan helps me, even though I don't know what the plan is. 3) I love the idea of moving somewhere you'll like more, even if it's temporary. I'm always daydreaming how we can move away...(even though in general, I like where we live).

I always think about it too. I really think I was born to live by the beach. Any beach. I want to hear the waves and smell fish. I want to live in a fisherman's town!!! lol

I 100% agree. I always think when my kids are grown, I'll live by the beach but really, I would love to raise them by the beach :) Just the other day I was listening to the radio and the DJ asked if you had 1 million dollars what would you do with it. My immediate answer was by a ranch by the beach. I know I couldn't buy that in CA but that part doesn't matter so much, any beach would do. :)

Adrienne said...

Yeah! Any beach would do! Davey would love a ranch!

Way to go on not using all of your Flex points. :) And I so know what you mean about noticing other people! The funny thing is that it's the small people that I notice it in. I just want to be like Noooo! You don't want to have to do what I did!

I'm praying for you guys and all of the unknown changes that will be coming your way. Glad you're doing well! =)

Thanks Lanae! It's so funny! That's true too about the skinny people! But I always assume they are "naturally skinny" lol. You did a great job losing weight. How is maintainability?
