My thinnest 2009

Before  2008
Since all my goals this year require change I need to get my head around what it is going to take.  In church they talked about that very thing.  If we try to do it on our own it is just behaivor management.  Instead we need to submit ourselves to God and allow Him to change us from the inside out. I am stuggling with this when it comes to regaining my girly figure after pregnancy.  I went through my first journey of change  a couple years ago.  That journey went pretty well and I did succeed as far as losing weight goes.  I lost 45 lbs. But as I went on my journey I found myself fixating on the  plan and not on Jesus.  So this time around I would like to make an internal change while I work on the external too.

So action plan???  First I am watching what I eat. Since I am breast feeding I am suppose to eat anywhere fr om 1800-2200 calories a day. I also read that losing more than 1 1/2 lbs. a week is not safe because it releases toxins into your milk. Second, I am trying to move a little bit more. My body has had some extreme changes so I am building up slowly.  Thirdly, I am studying Matthew trying to get a bigger picture of who Jesus was and how he lived his life.
I need some accountability so maybe part of  that is blogging for me.  Bill sent me an article that had people who did something similar.  He thought it would inspire me.

So I will be posting updates on how I am doing weekly.  To start here are pictures of before and after my first journey, at 8 months pregnant, and after Charleigh's birth.
