2008 will definitely be the year to refocus...

Hello all! I am looking forward to the holidays. I bought a red velvet cake for Thursday from the cake lady here at work and it is soo tempting! I took it home at lunch time so I wouldn't eat it. I did get a little taste though .

My goal is not to overeat this year. I know it will be hard with all of the temptation around but I am determined to do it. I just can't give up now. I've come too far from were I started from ( I hear the song in my head as I type ). Just in case I don't make it to a computer anymore this week...

Happy Thanksgiving!


Affirmation of the WEEK :

Be thankful!

Happy Thanksgiving enjoy Turkey Day, gobble-gobble!

Just a thought... If you find yourself having made a not so great meal item choice go for a walk to try and balance things out.

Take care.

Hi Tamekia! How was your thanksgiving? I was in your neck of the woods on "turkey day" - We ate dinner at my aunt's house in Summerville.

I have really gotten off track but I am ready to get back on the band wagon. I have been praying about some things and I know I really need to make some changes. I really think I am going to commit to SB as an WOE because I know it works and it is not as restrictive and in January I plan to start BFL. My new mantra is "Fail to Plan, Plan to Fail!"

Personal Affirmations:

Jesus is Lord over my spirit, my soul and my body.

Jesus is made unto me wisdom, righteousness, sanctification and redemption.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

The Lord is my shepherd; I do not want.

My God supplies all my need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.


(From 'Prayers That Avail Much' - Philippians 2:9-11; I Corinthians 1:30; Philippians 4:13; Psalm 23:1; Philippians 4:19)

Hey Nkechi,

Girl you were really in my neck of the woods because that's where I live; my mom still lives in North Charleston (21 minutes away from me).

I really did good with SB and I am using the menus in the book while I LCarbing. They are tasty and filling.

On track is where we will stay!!!

Really! My father is from Summerville and most of his family is still there. We are usually down in the area every major holiday.

Okay I think I have developed an addiction to coffee. I have been skipping breakfast for coffee w/Coffeemate and DaVinci's for over a month now. I am already on my second cup and thinking about a 3rd. I know that's not good. I probably need to go back to my other addiction of the Zaxby's salads but that got kinda old and I am not really into salads now that it's cold. I am looking for some LC soup recipes that I can have at lunch. Soup and cold weather go together like peas and carrots (that's from Forest Gump ).

Soup sounds gooood. I'm not even much of a soup person, I have to be in the mood for it and guess what just reading your posting put me in the mood. I don't know about the peas and carrots but some chicken and spinach with onions sounds good!

Man I need to learn how to cook, and how to enjoy cooking.

Ummmm, soups are lovely!! I bet you'll eventually get your hankering for salads back, sometimes we just get sick of the veggies. Hope you're getting along great!

Yes I went to the chinese restaurant yesterday and got some. Had noodles in it though so I am sure it wasn't very low carb. I have been doing better about eating but not really watching the carbs like I should. I actually thing I've lost a couple of inches but I still haven't weighed myself since my disappointing weigh-in a couple of weeks ago. I go back to weigh-in tomorrow so wish me luck.

Good Luck..

No matter what the scale says it is your commitment from this day forward that makes all the difference. The scale will only reflect your choices from yesterday but if you make better choices moving forward you will soon see the result of the choices you make today.

Yes I have been very busy. You would think that things would be slowing down with the holidays and all but NO it's been one thing after another.

For my weigh-in from last week I am down to 232.2. Still not where I was but better than 234.4! I haven't been eating perfect but I have been eating less and that is all I can do. I started a modified SB by just eating protein and veggies with the minor slip-up yesterday of eating fries when I got off work . All I can say is like they say in AA - One Day at a Time .

Affirmation: One Day at a Time (sweet Jesus)!

One Day at a Time Sweet Jesus: Lyrics to the song

I'm only human, I'm just a woman.
Help me believe in what I could be
And all that I am.
Show me the stairway, I have to climb.
Lord for my sake, teach me to take
One day at a time.

Chorus:
One day at a time sweet Jesus
That's all I'm asking from you.
Just give me the strength
To do everyday what I have to do.
Yesterday's gone sweet Jesus
And tomorrow may never be mine.
Lord help me today, show me the way
One day at a time.

Do you remember, when you walked among men?
Well Jesus you know if you're looking below
It's worse now, than then.
Cheating and stealing, violence and crime
So for my sake, teach me to take
One day at a time.

Chorus
