...My journey begins....

I'm taking small steps to battling this weight.

Right now I'm waiting on two books from amazon! 

The first is Crave: Why You Binge Eat and How to Stop Cynthia M. Bulik Ph.D.

The second is Made to Crave: Satisfying Your Deepest Desire with God, Not Food,  by Lysa TerKeurst.

The second book I mentioned was at the suggestion of a fellow blogger.  Thea from Collide(Thanks Girl!)  Love her blog! Y'all should go check it out. Her January 14th post was a gentle reminder for me! ;)

 What about exercise you ask?  Its not enough just to read about why you are overweight.

My friends closest to me know that I suffer from gout.  Just the word 'gout'  can send shivers  down my spine.

One of the little known problems about gout is that a flare up is always one toe bump away.  Even overworking foot and knee joints can bring on a flare up.  Not fun!

So when I choose an exercise,it has to be VERY low impact.  As much as I would love to join a gym with a pool, I cannot afford that.  So, for now, I have a dvd that I will begin to try.  I'll modify as much as I can and let you know all about it on another post.  Who knows, it may just turn into a humorous read for you.

 Oh and NOT forget the giveaway!!  click here!


  1. I wish you luck and blessings on your journey!
