i feel refreshed today..



me now and me before i ever started doing anything at 356..

i know i have been talking everyday like i wasnt sure of how to do this and i needed help..and i do need help..we all need help..but today i got up and i felt like a new energy had emerged inside me ..i feel refreshed and its something i hadnt felt in a long time..really not since i stopped walking..

i feel good ..i dont know exactly how i am going to do this but i do know i am taking it one hour at a time..all i can do..its a gift to be able to do this..to be given this chance to turn my health around..to be able to live before i die..i need to honor the chance that God has given me and do this not only for me but for God..He is the one who has allowed me to see that i have to do this or i will die and not by Gods choice..but my own..im killing me..we all are if we dont see it now and do something about it..we will eventually be put into a pine box and put under ..and that i dont want for a long time to come..sure i want to see my relatives but not til God says its time..

so today is a new day and i will rejoice in it and be glad i have it to deal with..
today i am not drinking pop..i got back on the water today..i am drinking it as i write..today i will walk ..and i will watch the calories and not watch them go down my throat but watch how many i put in my mouth..today is a new start to a great journey..thank you all for trying so hard to help me..i appreciate all of you..

enjoy the day..

  1. I am just so happy for you. Look at your before photo, golly gee girl you are fabulous. Look what you have previously achieved. Focus on 1 day at a time, nothing else. I know that mindset is 99% of weight loss, look at Sean ! Put a line in the sand. Martine

  5. Awesome attitude and post! Each day is a gift and each day we have a new fresh chance to make the day a great day.
    I like how you said you need to honor God by taking care of yourself. Your right, I think we all forget that! Thank you for the reminder this isn't just for me it's for Him too.

    Have a great weekend:)

  6. Kelli, I was just talking to my daughter as she walked to a bus stop and stopped for a snow cone! I told her I had been reading this neat blog written by the sweetest lady who sold snow cones! That would be you!
