That's more than a half-pound down from yesterday.
I should have updated for the CDCC challenge today, instead of a day early. HAH.
A few days ago, I'd asked my hubby to pray for my body to want to be a lower weight. One morning (a few days ago), he kneeled by the bed and laid his hand on my thigh and prayed before going to work. Usually, that means he's praying cause I didn't feel well (and I spent many years as a virtual invalid, so he's used to praying at my bedside over me). He said he was praying also for what I had asked, that my body would desire to break the stall and move down again.
I exercised less. I rested more. I ate more some days, upping carbs a bit, as I saw some do to break stalls. I prayed more. I talked to my body more.
Well, whatever, some folks will laugh, but you never know what is the thing, or the combination of things, including FAITH, that will help.
Perhaps this week, the deciding factor was just that: a man whose heart was full of love saying a prayer.
Thanks for the comments on the update post. My allergies and asthma are radically better, even if no cured. I used to be bedbound for weeks and months out of the year. I had to quit working when I was 30 cause I was gasping all day at work, and even part-time was beyond my ability. I was suicidal at various points, thinking it was hopeless and I'd never get better.
Well, eating better, exercising how I could manage, on days I could manage, taking herbs, taking supplements, seeing different doctors, trying different meds...just not giving up. And so..here I am..in a better place overall with my health, though my defective body will never be normal, barring divine intervention.
Research. Not giving up. Trying new things. Faith.
It worked for me in more than one area of life already, and I figure I'll keep using that in other areas and on other flaws I want to improve.
So, if you're a faith sort of person, have someone you love lay hands on you and just PRAY for you to lose some weight this week. Could it hurt? No. Could it help? I always believe they can....I always hope for the mountain to move....even if just smidge. :D
