My Weight-Loss Journey Part 3

My Weight-Loss Journey Part 3

Catch up on my weight loss journey by reading Part 1 and Part 2.

I hate to tell you….

but I’m still working on losing the physical weight.

I have learned, however, that the spiritual weight I had been carrying around over those years was so much heavier than the physical weight. The bitterness, anger, unforgiveness….. Revelation Wellness® taught me (and trained me to help others!) realize that I can walk in freedom. Freedom from sugar addiction. Freedom from guilt and shame. Freedom from past sin. Freedom from negative body image. That the Lord cares more about the condition of my heart than the number on the scale. When I surrender to His will, when I ask Him to reveal the greater truths of my physical condition based on what’s inside my heart… It might hurt. But it’s where real weight loss begins.

My Weight-Loss Journey Part 2

You can read part 1 of my weight loss journey, here. I actually consider it more of my weight gain journey! Here is part 2 of my weight-loss journey.

The Middle {continued}

After Greg had his vasectomy, and the realization hit that we would not have any more children, I decided it was time to “get my body back.” I did it the way every one else does it: calories in, calories out. I downloaded the My Fitness Pal app and started to log every single bite that went into my mouth. I was using the 30-Day Shred for my workouts. They were 20 minutes and completely do-able. I lost 20-25 pounds in a few short months. Honestly, it was my coping mechanism. While I wasn’t angry or bitter, I didn’t really know how to deal with the facts. So I turned to working out.

My Weight-Loss Journey Part 1

My Weight-Loss Journey Part 1

As a child and teenager, weight loss was never a concern for me. I was an athletic young lady and “could eat whatever I wanted” and really wouldn’t gain any weight. I remember girls in my 7th grade class having “weight loss challenges” and they would see who could lose the most weight in a week. They would sit at lunch and eat saltine crackers and drink water. I remember thinking how ridiculous they were. I never said that, but it was how I felt. I can even remember telling my mom about what they were doing. The idea of being worried about weight loss at 13 didn’t make sense to me. Read More

Sugar – An Idol?

Sugar – An Idol?

Hi, my name is Gail, I’m 31 years old, and I’m a recovering sugar-addict.

Sugar- An Idole?

Sounds a bit dramatic, right? But it’s the truth. I wasn’t able to admit that I was actually addicted to sugar until this past Spring when I got together with some of my girlfriends and we just had a real heart-to-heart conversation about where we were at. In the moment of my confession, I realized just how much I was letting sugar have it’s way with me.

Easy Homemade Greek Yogurt!

Easy Homemade Greek Yogurt!

Who would have thought I would be making homemade yogurt?

Well. Me actually.

I remember my first small group after we moved down to Georgia. The discussion around the women’s table was “The moms who make their own baby food….” I sheepishly said, “Well. I do.” It’s easy really, and that’s what I told them. You cook the veggies and blend. Take the fruit and mash it up and serve.  Read More

I am a Recovering Sugar Addict

I am a Recovering Sugar Addict

I am a recovering sugar addict. Just a few months ago, I was actually able to say out loud to some girlfriends that I had an addiction to sugar. I knew it, but couldn’t say it before. God has been good, kind, gracious, and loving the sugar out of me! Even when I fall (as you’ll read below) He is still good and gentle to lead me in His ways.

Recovering Sugar Addict

On July 17th, I started a 21-day sugar detox. I am trying to stick to it and show myself grace all at the same time. A few months ago I realized that sugar was having its way with me. Then, over the 4th of July weekend and week, I just totally binged. I knew it and *gasp* didn’t even care. Friends, that’s a red flag when we KNOW what we are doing to our bodies and we DON’T CARE! I prayerfully consider a sugar detox because I wanted to do it for the right reasons. Not because some of my friends were doing it, but because it was truly a season God was calling me into. Read More
