Zingers and Pictures

Meet Gibbs.   He and his brothers and sisters, and his mother, were dumped along a highway to fend for themselves some months ago.   I don't understand people who do that...there are too many options.   Mr. Gibbs now has a good home, and he's as spoiled as can be!

I posted these "zingers" in April...I am posting it again for my own sake.  I am not sure why, but I am still dealing with the urge to eat.  Still no bread, chips, sugar, etc., but I have had sugar free candy.   It didn't seem to bother me before, but I am wondering now if that has something to do with my yearn to feed.   It's not overwhelming, but I can't deny that it's there.  I guess I need to reevaluate, readjust...rethink.

Weight loss zingers for the Child of God

  • It’s going to take more time than you planned for or wanted it to.
  • If you weigh every day, be prepared for fluctuations and say no to discouragement.  Patience is vitally important.
  • You may possibly temporarily gain weight with exercise.
  • There will be days you don’t do everything “right.”
  • There will be days you don’t do anything “right.”
  • If you rely on your own strength, you will invariably struggle.
  • If you rely on God’s strength, you can pick up on Monday where you left off on Friday…after that weekend food-fest.   And He will help you to overcome those overdone weekends and/or nights.
  • God hears every prayer for freedom, but He requires you to believe that you have what He has already paid for with the blood of His son, our precious Jesus.
  • You will hit plateaus.
  • Some plateaus last a long time.   Again, patience.
  • You may need to give up sugar.  It certainly helped me.
  • You can do this…even if you need to lose 175 pounds.
  • You don’t have to wait until Monday to start.
  • You don’t have to wait until tomorrow to restart.

I mentioned earlier this week that I should do a Shoals Area entry this week....I was going through my photos...and I have uh-lot of local pictures.   I picked out only a handful, and put together a slideshow.

  1. Those zingers are something we should print out and put some place to read daily. You live in such a pretty place; enjoyed the pictures.

    Are you stressed over anything? Is that why you have the urge to eat? Dehydrated?


  2. You are a phenomenal photographer!!!

  3. I have to wonder if any campus in Alabama has more beauty than UNA... (Not that I'm prejudiced or anything.)

    1. Definitely no prettier campus...and I'm not biased at all! ☺
