Welcome to 2015

Happy New Year! I forgot to weigh myself yesterday, but I did this morning. Good Night, I must have had a very enjoyable Christmas and New years. emoticon I stepped on that scale this morning and oh man. it's not good. It. is. time. I let myself take too much time off after the HM. My eating habits have been less than stellar. it's time to get back on the low carb horse. I have the "know how". It's the "want to" that I struggle with. I mean, don't get me wrong. I WANT to lose weight, but honestly ever since I reached ONEderland, I've struggled. I was so elated to be there I got complacent. But DH recently lost some weight (yeah, yeah, good for him! haha) so, now I weigh more than him once again. It's not a HUGE difference, but again weighing less than him made me complacent with my weight.

Complacency is dangerous. I don't think we're ever supposed to be complacent. It's time to get out of this and be JOYFUL.

I recently joined an online study. We will be memorizing 24 bible verses this year, and the great thing is... you choose your own verses. My first verse is Jeremiah 29:11. I know it, but I don't KNOW it.

"For I know the plans I have for you", declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." NIV

At this very moment, that's the verse I need on my heart. I need to relish that God has DECLARED that he has a better life for me. A life of joy and purpose and not complacency.

Suck it complacency. You're goin' down!

    Working on not getting complacent since hitting ONEderland, myself. I am not close to hubby's weight yet, but it's a huge goal of mine. You have this, Sarah. You are one of my most inspiring friends. Feel that JOY, girl!

    I know you can do this because you have. I'm totally with you on the complacency, unfortunately my complacency led to additional stress and that led to Whatever. So, together, we will once again make this happen my friend!! Even though I'm miles away, I still love ya and I'm still cheering you on.

    emoticon Verse for sure.
    I ate a lot of carbs through December, and I'm getting back on my 'lower' carb plan starting tomorrow. I purchased a bunch of the Atkins frozen entrees. They are my favorite. So easy, and as long as I stick with them, and healthy snacks, then I know I'm within range. I don't like to write down everything. So it's easier this way for me.

    Good luck to you. I know you can do it! We need to get together soon.

    Ok - you have that scarey "I'm gonna kick butt" sound in your voice. (Ok ... writing ... but same thing right?)

    So I think ol' Mr. Complacency had kinda skedaddle outta there.

    Time to rock it Sarah .... wooohoooo!!!

    WOOHOO!! I know what you mean about being complacent with your loss thus far but a kick in the butt is always good! & Men can lose it so quickly, Josh said the other day, "oh you're getting really close to my weight, I'd better start losing" I was like NOOO!! haha. but man it was motivating. haha.


    I could get on board with that low carb again, I way overdid the holidays with carbs.
