I am soooo excited to be here. I think this is going to be a wonderful 10 weeks!!
I have been reading your testimonies and have been greatly encouraged by your diligence and determination.
I have had weight issues all of my life. I´ve had several health issues that seem to complicate the matter, and sometimes I feel like I will never be able to get on top of the problem. But you have given me hope... =) I know that the Lord can help me.. BUT.. I have to be willing to make changes.
I am so thankful for the 2 children the Lord has blessed us with. ( We were not able to have children for 10 years due to my hormonal issues.. but then the Lord gave us Marcos in Feb. of 2003 and Lidia in June of 2006)
Currently my husband and I are helping in a small church in Huesca, but he is again out of a job, so we are seeking the Lord´s will as to what to do and where to go and serve Him.
Well.. I am extending myself too much.. as to my goals for these 10 weeks:
Cut OUT sugar and white flour.
Drink more water.
Eat more fruits and veggies
And... excercise at least 20 min. per day to start
Currently my weight is 113 kilos (oh.. dear...)
This next week I am turning 36 and I really want to do this.
Please pray for me. Everytime I try something invariably someone comes along and tells me that another type of diet would be better for me.. I then get discouraged and just leave it.
But I just HAVE to do something, and I really believe that this is the time to do it.
Thanks for the opportunity to join with you in this journey.
