Hang in there!

Okay, so it may be a little difficult to stay focused. Who's used to discipline? If we were all that and a bag of chips (oh! a bag of chips!), we wouldn't have to do this.

It really doesn't matter what your weight is, the fact of the matter is that we can all stand to be mindful. Forgive yourself if you're off track or lagging behind, and keep it moving. We're all being challenged, by stress, pain, sickness, problems at work, or issues at home, but we are changing our lives. So, if you're a little discouraged, you're absolved of all 3D sins these past five days, and you get to have a glorious Tuesday and Wednesday. Plan your work, and work your plan. Go to the 3D YOUR WHOLE LIFE website and enjoy the goodies there.


Hang in there.

You're exactly where you're supposed to be.

I really believe that, Mair. That I'm right where I'm supposed to be. I think this 3D Life thing is more about accepting and LIVING where I am. Definitely moving towards something better, deeper, more, but also recognizing the good in every moment. I've been very down of late, took a break from blogging to refocus. This new challenge is just what I need. It's reminding me that God truly knows the plans He has for me. They aren't for evil, but for good! Living a WHOLE LIFE if just what I want to do. I know I've just begun it, but I'm spilling over with excitement and energy. Today I am so very thankful for that!!

love you to!!

Oh, Mair and Leslie, I am right with you. As I read the material for this second week, I feel as though am reading it for the first time. The memory verse is one I memorized back in 1978 and the operative word for me in that verse is 'seems'. Disciple SEEMS painful. Am realizing in a deeper way that disciple ISN'T painful it just SEEMS that way because I love my bad habits so much. As I choose to take pleasure in healthy habits, I have a deeper satisfaction and then don't have to race to wrong eating to feel pleasure. I discover pleasure in having been good to myself, rather than the momentary pleasure of stuffing my mouth, then feeling ugly and bummed out,because I have been unkind to myself. I am so happy about this group - and even though we are not face to face, I am surprised at how close I feel to everyone and supported by all.
Prayers to each of you as we journey together.

Ditto, Ditto, Ditto to EVERYONE! Evening is such a challenging time to choose "No excess food." Life and food and everything associated with it is better when I can continually be on the treadmill of life. When I stop - even for 15 min. - food is what I think of - it's my drug of choice to fill the angst. Why not God? I know that He is clearly the answer, but some times I just don't want to listen to the Holy Spirit. I'm pretty disobedient. Today is a new day - yesterday is past and tomorrow is not yet here. I'm joining with all of you in this 24-hour period for much grace as God uses our food addiction (or affliction!) to turn to Him. The enemy would prefer that we stay in this bondage, but God's grace and mercy are available for us all today. I'm going to grasp it . . . one moment at a time.

Thanks for reminding us to "breathe" and that we are on this journey together! Alleluia!

I had to laugh when I saw that kitten because truthfully...that's me. Hanging in there...even though I know that if I do fall, I'll land on my feet, that still doesn't make the dangling feel any better. LOL! This week, I'm slowly making my way through the book. Trying to make sure I journal everyday (and not just in my head as I'm prone to do). The diet is better...but still muddling through. Hubbie is helping (made a fabulous chicken and veggie stew for me). All in all, I'm grateful. Being still and knowing, Tracey
