Blogging Through the Alphabet- A is for ...Again


I gained weight...again.

Okay,'s been awhile. My poor neglected blog goes along with my poor neglected health. My weight has climbed back to what it was before I started my weight loss journey in Dec 2010.
For the last 2 months I have been struggling with trying to get healthier, but my numbers have only fluctuated between the same few pounds.

I've been struggling...again.

I tried different motivations. I looked for the different challenges that I was a part of a couple of years ago, but wasn't happy with the change over at the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans and couldn't find any others. My sweet hubby tried motivating me by promising me a certain amount of money toward a better camera for a certain amount of weight lost. Now, you would have thought that would have motivated me. Unfortunately, not near as much as I hoped.  I joined in with a bunch of great ladies from the Schoolhouse Review Crew as a Facebook Weight Loss Accountability group was formed. I even joined in on this groups Biggest Loser Challenge. Still, I wasn't losing weight. Even after trying things that worked in the past...again.

I am not sure what happened last Thursday, but suddenly I decided I had had enough.

I started juicing...again
I started eating healthier and restricting dairy, meat and sugar...again
I started exercising...again
I started losing weight...again.

I know I could have given up again, but I didn't.
I was reminded that the Lord's mercy's are new every morning.
