Fit Mommy Friday

This has been a very tough week for me.  I found out I have gallstones and will be seeing a surgeon in April.  Not the news I had hoped for!!  But I continue to press on, it's just a small stumbling block.

I went to my Weight Watcher's meeting today and I stayed the same.  I am very thankful for that!!  I have not been able to exercise at all.  Today I will start with a small workout session.

I wrote these down from the Weight Watcher's room today:

Helpful Habits- Build a strong foundation
  • Ask for help
  • Learn from experiences
  • Manage your environment
  • Manage your feelings
  • Manage your thoughts
  • Monitor yourself
  • Take care of yourself
These are habits I need to incorporate into my life.  The first one I've done...asking for help....I joined weight watchers.  That is a hard thing to do.  Admiting that I needed help.  I've always been an independent person....admiting that I needed help with weight loss was the hardest thing I've had to do.  I'm an addict when it comes to food.  I'm slowly learning from experiences.  Sometimes I don't even think when putting food in my mouth.  It's like I'm in a haze...then it's over and I'm left with a feeling of failure. 

I am working on getting into that mindset that I CAN do it, instead of the I can't do it.  One of the many things I learned so far from "Made to Crave" by Lysa TerKeurst was to lean on God not myself or any human.  Psalm 18 1-3 says, "I will love You, O Lord, my strength.  The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold."

If you have not read that book I highly recommend you do.  This book has changed my life, both physical and mental.  My walk with God has never been stronger.  I've also lost a total of 11 pounds in 4 weeks.  But it's not all about the number on a scale.

I have heard such good things about "Made to Crave" and have been wanting to read it! I am really going to have to order it from Amazon now!
