MARCHING FORWARD

Hi people
Okay so it’s the month of March and I’m really excited. I have a really good feeling about March…

Like there’s something really good about to happen for me. God is up to something in March and how am I going to get it? Same way you are going to get yours ‘cos the same God is rich unto all so I’m sure He has some great stuff packaged for you too. So how will we get it? Simple… by MARCHING FORWARD. This is a clear case of “the violent taketh it by force”.

God’s promises to you are YEA and AMEN but you need to war a good warfare with the prophecy. I’m sure a lot of prayers and promises will be going round either by BBM, twitter, Facebook, in church, etc but if you don’t grab yours and settle it by faith, it will be just another month…. Another bbm update or another broadcast….and honestly I refuse to allow March March past me (excuse the pun)

So Speaking of not sitting aroundΒ  and letting March March past me, I have decided to do two very important things. At least important to me. You see the last six months have been about this beautiful testimony of mine…

it’s been exclusively her πŸ˜‰ so now I’m getting to the point where pastor m needs to get her groove back. I’m weaning her (partly) and moving on…

I’ve decided to start my weight loss journey again and in order to make sure I do I have decided to start a blog chronicling my journey. The challenges, my victories, my trials, my triumphs, my weight loss secrets and tips. I’m doing this to be more accountable and because I know that there are many women like me who put on a million pounds more than they imagined during the whole pregnancy and breastfeeding process. So this ladies is for us.

The truth is I’m not vain. I usually can’t be bothered by what most women worry their heads about like hair, nails, clothes, makeup, etc but I do have one pet peeve. I hate being fat. I’m sorry I’m not one of those who joke about it, dress it up, carry myself well, etc

I’ve never been one to crack jokes like this

image

I somehow don’t find these jokes that funny. I’m more likely to wax more philosophical when it comes to fat with things like this instead….

image

Or with this

image

Like I said before I’m just not that kind of big girl’s rock kinda girl ‘cos being fat for me comes with some serious health challenges that I need faith to keep at bay. In fact recently I’ve been struggling with walking because my knees just refuse to keep up with all this extra baby weight I have been lugging about.Β 

Interestingly God has helped me achieve this weight loss before so I’m believing that since He cannot change. He will help me do it again…

image

I actually moved from a UK size 20 to a size 12.

image

Okay so that’s not really me πŸ˜€Β  This is me…

image

after I hit my goal weight..

Then I found out I was pregnant

image

Now I’m working my way back so that by the next When Women Worship in June I will be able to walk up that stage carrying my complete testimony and my knees will no longer be complaining…

After all when all is said and done it’s still about giving God glory …

image

I just choose to do it as a size 12 πŸ˜‰ looking fly…like arm candy…walking beside my pk

image

rather than like this…

image

notice the double chin and barely there neck? 😦 thankfully the photographer helped me by not showing the arms πŸ™‚

Okay, so this is actuallyΒ  me calling out to all who plan to join me on this journey. If you’ve ever wanted to be fit and healthy then please join me…the more the merrier.

On Monday 3rd of March, I kick off my weight loss journey and start blogging about it on http://journeytosizetwelve.wordpress.com

See you there…
