Setting Up My Fitness Pal

I have to get serious and stay serious. I have to develop a habit of tracking my food… daily! That’s the ticker for my weight loss. Let’s go!

Tring low carb like Keto or Atkins. Decided at church so I blew breakfast. But hey, with God, I got this!

Tuesday

Wow! Another great day. I even had a hurting spell at work (like I thought I must have a bladder infection) but was able to handle it. My God is an awesome God!

Monday Monday Monday

Today started out really bad. I got an email from one of my administrators saying that my teacher evaluation was ready. So I went and looked at it. And I had three needs improvement!!! I’ve been teaching about 11 years and have never gotten one. So I was upset. Lots of people complain about the administration at our school and I really try not to because really it’s been OK. But this didn’t make any sense. So I wrote comments on it saying my point of view and then submitted it. I called Mike and had my little cry. I felt like the world’s worst teacher.

I talked to a couple of my friends and they agreed with me that you know it was ridiculous. So mostly I talked to God and got straight with him and He made my heart smooth and happy. You know it is what it is. I don’t believe that I deserve the beat down that I got but I got it. I’ve dealt with it and now I need to MoveOn. Mike was pleasantly surprised when he pick me up from school this afternoon and I was not in a bad mood. Even physically it’s been a pretty good day. What can I say? God is just the greatest in the world. I’m so grateful to have God.

So moving on to food… We did not eat out this morning for breakfast! That was great. I had two breakfast bars on the way to work. I had the salad that Mike had packed for me with the pork roast from last night. And then for supper, we went to Chick-fil-A because they had buy one sandwich get one free and I got a side salad and then put the meat on in it from the two sandwiches. So food wise it’s been a great day!

See, on a normal day I would’ve just wanted to eat and eat and eat after something bad like this happened. But it wasn’t normal anymore because God is really controlling me again and I’m giving into Him. And I’m so proud of me. I thank you Jesus!

That’s all for now. Bye-bye!

Starting Again

OK I have to do better today. The weight is starting to interfere with my movement. It’s hard to sit down. Going to the commode and getting into the van are the worst things that I have to do all day long.

So I want to try to train myself to take pictures of the food that I eat all day. But I forgot breakfast. LOL. It was two burritos from McDonald’s.

I’m going to try low-carb. And leave this open until I finish today so I’ll be back later for lunch.

This song was sung in church this morning. I know Jesus was speaking to me through it. He is with me! He has assured me that we will do this successfully together!

You said You’d come and share all my sorrows, You said You’d be there for all my tomorrows; I came so close to sending You away, But just like You promised You came there to stay; I just had to pray!

And Jesus said, “Come to the water, stand by My side, I know you are thirsty, you won’t be denied; I saw ev’ry teardrop when in darkness you cried, And I strove to remind you that for those tears I died.”

Your goodness so great I can’t understand, but, dear Lord, I know now that all this was planned; I know You’re here now, and always will be, Your love loosed my chains and in You I’m free; But Jesus, why me?

And Jesus said, “Come to the water, stand by My side, I know you are thirsty, you won’t be denied; I saw ev’ry teardrop when in darkness you cried, And I strove to remind you that for those tears I died.”

Jesus, I give You my heart and my soul, I know that without God I’d never be whole; Savior, You opened all the right doors, And I thank You and praise You from earth’s humble shores; Take me, I’m Yours.

And Jesus said, “Come to the water, stand by My side, I know you are thirsty, you won’t be denied; I saw ev’ry teardrop when in darkness you cried, And I strove to remind you that for those tears I died.”


Lunch was a club salad from Subway. I did take a picture… I just need to figure out how to post it here.

Supper was a salad with pork roast. I forgot the picture.

I was successful today. Thank you Jesus!

Still Don’t Have It Togeter

Standing on the promises of Christ my King,
Through eternal ages let His praises ring,
Glory in the highest, I will shout and sing,
Standing on the promises of God.

Refrain

Standing, standing,
Standing on the promises of God my Savior;
Standing, standing,
I’m standing on the promises of God.

Standing on the promises that cannot fail,
When the howling storms of doubt and fear assail,
By the living Word of God, I shall prevail,
Standing on the promises of God.

Refrain

Standing on the promises I now can see
Perfect, present cleansing in the blood for me;
Standing in the liberty where Christ makes free,
Standing on the promises of God.

Refrain

Standing on the promises of Christ the Lord,
Bound to Him eternally by love’s strong cord,
Overcoming daily with the Spirit’s sword,
Standing on the promises of God.

Refrain

Standing on the promises I cannot fall,
Listening every moment to the Spirit’s call
Resting in my Savior as my all in all,
Standing on the promises of God.

Back at It

So I fell off the wagon and got back up to 286.

I am choosing to forgive myself and continue on!

It’s a lot harder now. I feel the temptation worse than I did to begin with. But I do see more aware of that God is here helping me. I know I can’t say “I don’t have it in me” because with God I always have “it” in me. I need to let him take more control of my life. And I need to realize how much damage I have done.

I just read about soft drinks well diet soft drinks and more on how bad they are for you. What the particular article said that the drink does to you, well, everything I have. So it’s like I drink this Diet Coke for years and years and years and didn’t realize what I was doing to myself. It’s horrible. I talked to the nurse at work. She said it would be better to drink a regular soft drink if I have to have one. So I think that’s what I’m going to do if I feel I need a soda.

So I’m going to try to start writing more again. This is Grandma Lilley’s Weight Journey Part Two. I need to try to make this the last part. I have to start stop damaging myself. If you’re reading this, I don’t know about that. But if you’re reading it please pray for me. I realize that God is the only way to get this weight off and get my operation and get well again.

Thanks for listening!
