First off, let me explain why I am starting a blog. I never thought I would have one, but I am mainly starting this one to keep myself accountable. Even if nobody actually reads this, I will feel the need to stick to my goal if I know I've got to come to this little tiny corner of the www to post my progress.
I am naming this the dessert dieter because that's what I am...I have lost weight before, and I think I've got a pretty good idea of how to do it. Eat less, basically. :o) However, when I've done it in the past, I often do not cut out taboo foods like dessert. In fact, I usually have them almost every day. I am a calorie counter, so I just make sure I save enough calories to have dessert somewhere (at least once) in my day. I suppose my love for desserts is part of why I have to have this blog anyways...
I have weight to lose due to the extra pounds I've picked up in all my pregnancies. I have about 38 pounds to lose, to be exact. I am posting "before" pictures today in hopes that I eventually will be able to post some "after" pictures. :o)
I have a lot of reasons for wanting to lose the weight, so maybe that will be my post for next time. However, let me post the most important here today:
1 Corinthians 10:31 "So then whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God." I want to honor God with how I eat, which is often a struggle for me.
If anyone out there does happen to read my blog here, please feel free to leave comments...I am sure that will be a great help and encouragement to me. I hope that I can be an encouragement to someone else as well! God bless.
