Strength and Beauty

The meeting was great last night! Such a blessing to be able to encourage ladies to log their food, and work out. We did a weigh in for a few as well and measurements. There were a few tears of sweet ladies worried about their over weight kids. My good friend Denise, said she gave her first son a lot of convenient foods, chicken nuggets, mac n cheese, ect. He is now 8 and is a big boy (he is very tall too) but he wants to snack on things like chips. He three younger ones are young enough that they are ok with whatever she gives them. That hit home to me because I gave/give the boys easy stuff sometimes. I use to make mac n cheese for Shane a lot, and nuggets, and pizza, ect. I am giving them whole grains now, and lots of fruit and lean meat, but I hope it's not too late.
Jocelyn gave a great devotion on being right with God, and if your not right with God then He won't bless your weight loss. I do believe that with all my heart. I know it is His will for me to lose weight.
I challenged the ladies to work out harder than they do, at least one day between now and the next meeting. Than last night Kristy, a lady with 6 kids, asked if doing 30 minuets everyday was enough. I can see that she is very motivated and ready to lose the weight!! I will do my best to encourage all these ladies to stick with it. And myself! We did pray requests, and I requested for prayer that I will not cheat while n Morgan Hill. It's going to be very hard, but I do not want a set back. It would be easier to say no to cake if the scale was dropping!! But I just have to have faith that if I am good, it will drop.
So I think I am starting my period, and wonder if that is why I haven't dropped below 203. I have had one period since getting pregnant with Shane, so I don't really know if it does make you does that work??
So excited for the wedding tomorrow!! And I am doing two shoots on Sunday as well. I have a lot of cute ideas. I will post pics!!

I'm glad your meeting went so well. Sounds like everyone enjoyed it too. As a mom, I worry about my kids too. Neither of my girls are overweight but Mariyn is already very curvy, I feel that as an adult she will have to be careful. I want to teach her good eating and healthy exercise now so it never becomes a problem. Luckily, she likes healthy foods.

203 - it was a hard number for me to push through too. But eventually it will budge and just think how ONEderful it will be to see One hundreds again. Really it's only 1 or 2 good losses away :) You can do it!
