My husband and I started on our weightloss journey together last January. We really did not get very serious about it until April 2010!
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.

Today is the 30th. of the month and the day that my husband and I weigh ourselves. We do not weigh any other time, unless we go to the doctor's office. The last time I visited thr doctors office I told the nurse I did not want to know, because we only weigh once a month! You can not go by their scales anyway because it weighs you about 10 lbs. more than other scales do! I am so pleased to report that we have both lost another four pounds this month! Yeah!! This makes a total loss of 25 lb. for my husband and a total loss of nineteen lbs. for me! I would not have been surprised if we had not lost any or maybe gained some because of July being so busy with all of the activities we have been involved in that included eating foods not on our low fat diet!

We have been trying to loose since the first of the year, but we really got serious about it the first of April when I bought the Flat Belly Diet Book. We started drinking the sassy water before breakfast and lunch. Not the evening meal, though it would not hurt anything.
I just noticed that my numbers do not match up with what I have reported here last time! I thought I had lost 15 lbs. by last month, it must have been 16 lbs. instead. Anyway I would not fib about that, you know!! So I guess I have lost a total of 20 not 19 lbs. We still have a long ways to go! We are trying real hard this time! It is time to have my cholestrol levels checked again. I will let you know if the diet change and weight loss has helped there!

Well, we did not try hard enough this last month to loose our pounds for the month! My husband seemed to think that he gained a pound and I stayed at the same place!
So, we are back at it again this month of September!
I want to loose another five pounds this month and another five next month!! We are still trying to eat healthy and cut back on our portion sizes.

I have been trying so very hard to loose some more weight this month. We weigh only once a month so it is getting real close to the time when we will be weighing again, less than 10 days I think. I do not want to stop loosing yet as I am still too heavy for my height. I have been eating only vegetables, lean meat and fruit. Well I do put fat free sour cream on my chicken and lettuce sandwiches. So there is mostly no fat in my diet except the good fat like the kind that is in olives. The omega three fats are the best to eat as they are heart healthy. One can eat too many of them to loose weight though. I have to be sure to eat smaller size portions of the food containing them.
I get so hungry in the evening time when I should not eat anything. Our son brought us some apples from their tree so I think I will go eat some more fruit. I really do want a cracker with cheddar cheese! ;(
