Surfing the blog world and what I learned today...

Thursday - Quarry Coffee Day - what I learned about myself today

I started my morning surfing a few of my favorite blogs:

1.  Pioneer Woman - ( -love her posts about her family and recipes.
2.  Cheryl Barker -  ( - a Christian blog with great inspiration.
3.  Jesus and Dark Chocolate - ( - about her family and how they are getting through the days with early Alzheimer's disease in the family.

Then I decided to look for some new blogs under several different topics: well I started with weight loss first and let me tell you I came across one that I really could relate to and enjoy reading.
Paige has a comment on her home page that caught my eye immediately!   "Two people can do anything as long as one of them is God."
I started to read through her posts about her weight loss journey and couldn't stop.  She is very encouraging and honest about her feelings and struggles through the journey.  I will visit this blog on a regular basis for encouragement and inspiration.
Paige has made me think about why I am the size I am, what triggers me to eat, belief in myself, what I don't like and how it can be better in the coming days.

I don't know Paige personally but she has indirectly challenged me to take a step in faith and start my journey.

Why am I nervous about this journey? 
  • failure again ( I have tried multiple times to lose weight - not successful)
  • the number on the scale when I step on it for the beginning( I know I have a lot to lose to be healthy)
  • some of the changes I will need to make
What do I need to do start this journey?
  • weigh myself and record
  • take a picture (not happy about that at all)
  • make a food plan for eating
  • get rid of junk food from the kitchen/pantry
How am I going to start?
  • weigh in
  • have a journal to write in daily about it
  • read more on Paige's blog
  • make a menu and grocery shop
  • start to believe in myself that I can do this (with God's help)

The biggest thing I learned it that I can't do this alone!

Well, here goes my journey,  thanks for the inspiration Paige!
