    Day Seventyseven -- A New Phase



    This new phase isn't really all that different from the last six weeks. But I did have coffee for the first time this morning...and oohhhhh let me tell you, it was about the best cup of coffee I've ever had. I still remember my first slice of pizza after the last time I went through this program....best pizza of my life, by far! But pizza is still a long way off for this girl.

    As I said, nothing will really change much for me...but it still FEELS different. There's a feeling of freedom that I didn't expect. There are no more restrictions on what, specifically, I can put in my mouth. It's all entirely up to me to choose. And even though I'm not choosing anything differently, it feels even more empowering because these are MY rules and no one else's!

    All I needed was a very specific guideline for creating these rules, and a solid course to follow to learn how to actually employ those rules.

    I'll mention it here, for anyone who doesn't want to go digging through all my blogs to find the program I'm building my lifestyle around:

    It's a book called Eat to Live by Dr. Joel Fuhman.

    If ANY of you are struggling not just with weight, but with heart disease or diabetes, I can't recommend this book more strongly. It will quite literally change your life if you're serious about changing it. And not just for people who need to lose weight. Even average weight people in this country have terribly clogged arteries and are shortening their potential lifespan by poisoning themselves with fake food.

    OK OK...enough preaching!! It's not necessarily for everyone. Our brains and hearts are all wired differently and I know what works for one person may not work for another. But there IS something out there for everyone who sincerely seeks after it. I have no doubt.

    And for me, my faith is the foundation of all my abilities to find this course and stay on it. So if you've not followed my blogs before...you'll find that I almost always leave a verse of Scripture that speaks to me that day. Sometimes it lines up with what I'm writing...sometimes it's just a special word apart from my topic. It helps me to stay focused on the source of my strength and the power of who I am in God's eyes.

    I promise, not all my posts are this preachy and mushy! (Well, sometimes they get a little mushy! LOL) I just wanted to give a little more intro into who I am and what I'm doing here for those who haven't read before this.

    I'm sure this is quite enough for tonight!

    Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven. Your faithfulness endures to all generations. You established the earth, and it abides.
    - Psalm 119:89,90


    Good night!

    LOL...I overdid it on the coffee today. I'm not a heavy coffee drinker anyhow...but was so glad to have it back "on the menu" that I had three big cups this morning. Been jittery and spastic ever since! So no more coffee for a couple days...while I remind myself that moderation in ALL things is key!

    I look forward to being thin enough to feel comfortable eating an occasional slice of pizza again!

    Thanks for the kind words! I DO love my back yard!!! And I'm glad these colors are working out for folks, 'cause I like 'em a lot!
