BUT IN THE MULTITUDE OF COUNSELLORS THERE IS SAFETY.

WILL----Used to express desire, choice, willingness, consent.

WAY----The course traveled from one place to another, a series of actions, or sequence of events leading in a direction or toward an objective.

MY OBJECTIVE IS TO MAKE GOD'S WILL, MY WAY.

PROVERBS 11:14B

BUT IN THE MULTITUDE OF COUNSELLORS THERE IS SAFETY.




My doctor told me at my last visit, that he thought it would be good for me to join weight watchers. I have thought about it and prayed about it so with my husband's advice that is what I intend to do on this Wednesday Morning. I will only join for one month to see if it is a help or a hindrance to me.

I am a very private person even though, it may not seem that way on these blogs but I am. So it is very hard for me to go where others are, to discuss my weight problem. But I know that I have all the spiritual help that I need . I have the Lord to lean on and His Word to guide me and my husband to advise me, and all of you dear ones to encourage me. So, I know that I need the multitude of counsellors to help me. I need the practical help all can give me, the accountability that I can find at the meeting, and hopefully find a fiend that I can share the gospel with. So, I am coming once again for your prayers. I will let you know how it goes and if I find out anything that I think might be a help to you then I will share that.

I have looked at many blogs these past months. I have found one thing to be true that the ones who went to weight watchers did lose weight consistently. It might be just a little at a time (which is what I need) or it could be more one week and less the next but more times than not they were losing.

I am going to try and with the help of the Lord and knowing His will for my life in this area and knowing that His way is best, I am going to do my best. connie

BETTER IS THE END OF A THING THAN THE BEGINNING THEREOF: AND THE PATIENT IN SPIRIT IS BETTER THAN THE PROUD IN SPIRIT.

WW must be praying down customers, because I had decided last week to go as of this Wend. I have been on WW many times and it has been the only tried and true plan for me. Earlier this year I lost almost 30 lbs before quiting after my surgery. I know the plan backwards and forwards I just need the accountablity.
I am praying that both of us can use WW to become healthly so our temples may be used more throughly for the Lord.
The Eating Out & Complete food guide are helpful but pricey. If you do not eat out the slidding point calucator will be your best friend, especially when grocery shopping.
Lots of love and prayers
Carrie

Dear Carrie, Well this is three days down that road. I sure pray that your determination is strong. I have been gone so I have not had time to get much into my material but I have tried to be very careful. Thank you and Have a good day tomorrow as we put God first in our time in His house. connie

CONNIE'S THOUGHTS FROM THE HEART said...

Dear Pam, what a wonderful surprise!!! Thank you so much for commenting. It encourages me just knowing that you all are praying for me and I am you all. Hope tomorrow is good Lord's Days for you all and hope you are all doing very good. I love you more than I can say and am so thankful God chose to make you three some of my sisters. Have a good week and I will be thinking about you and praying for you. Connie

CONNIE'S THOUGHTS FROM THE HEART said...

Dear Lisa, thank you so much. I am really looking forward to the accountability, encouragement and all the many things I will be learning as well as for the new friends that I will be making.

I too, have Thyroid problems, Just one more thing that we have to over come with God's help. We can all do it. I think If I can just get the word "SLOWLY" into my mind, it will be so much easier for me. A life time of habit is hard to change. Have a good Lord's Day in the morning, Lisa. Thanks again, connie

Senkyoshi said...

I am a life-time member of WW. It is such a helpful program and the encouragement you receive at the meetings is great! I pray that you will find the help you need. I wish they had it in Japan. I would be there!

CONNIE'S THOUGHTS FROM THE HEART said...

Dear Senkyoshi, Hello, I am so glad to hear from you.Yes, I am looking forward to all that I can learn from WW. I think it will help me a lot.

I think about and pray for you often. I hope you are doing good on your journey in this area. Have a week that is filled with love and blessings from all. connie

Carrie said...

So how did your 1st week go?? I am dying to know. I only lost .4, but I know where I failed.
Hope to hear from you soon.
Carrie

CONNIE'S THOUGHTS FROM THE HEART said...

Dear Carrie, Hey, that is very good. I am still kind of just getting to know what it is I am supposed to be doing but I am slowly getting there. I did lose 2 pounds and I am thankful for that but I have to be careful so that I don't get gout again in my zeal to lose. I followed the plan and that is what happened. I am kindly surprised because I did not excersize at all and it seemed I was eating a lot. I really think that staying committed and the accountability is what will make it happen as far as earthly means. I hope you stay encouraged and we will lose again next week.

I like the people that I meet with, they are very friendly and helpful. I don't quiet feel at home yet but I am sure that will come. Praying for you and keeping you in my thoughts. connie
